Christian’s experience in the legal field began at his father’s law firm, where Christian worked as a janitor, file clerk, and office manager’s assistant. These early jobs provided him with firsthand exposure to legal practice and interesting cases, which sparked his interest in attending law school.
Christian is a people person. He loves meeting new people, getting to know and understand them, and helping them whenever he can. He enjoys practicing personal injury law because it allows him to help people navigate some of the most difficult times in their lives. To him, the most rewarding part of his job is achieving positive outcomes for his clients while helping them obtain the medical treatment and emotional closure they often need. Each successful case helps make the local community a safer place to live for his family, friends, and neighbors.
Christian is a Las Vegas local and graduated from Green Valley High School in Henderson, Nevada. After high school, he attended Brigham Young University and graduated with a B.S. in Exercise Science. Christian then attended the University of Cincinnati College of Law on academic scholarship, where he obtained his J.D.. While in law school, he served as a member of the Immigration and Nationality Law Review, one of only two major student-edited American law journals focusing on immigration law. Christian speaks Ukrainian, and his law review service was inspired by the two years he spent living in Ukraine as a church missionary.
Since becoming a lawyer, Christian has won multiple trials and short trials. He worked for more than five years as an insurance defense attorney, which provided him with a unique understanding of how insurance companies handle personal injury claims. He is a member of the Nevada Justice Association and currently serves on the Trial Lawyers Care committee, which contributes time, resources, and energy to local communities through volunteer and charitable activities that serve the public.
In his spare time, Christian enjoys traveling, reading, hiking, skiing, and spending time with his family.Read full bio
