Christina Watson Meier takes a pragmatic approach to problem solving and strives to make the legal process as stress-free as possible. Christina believes that to be an effective advocate, you must be actively engaged with your client and understand their objectives and goals. This requires trust between client and attorney and building trust takes time. Devoting enough time with clients to build trust is one of the reasons why Christina founded her firm.

Being happy at work is the second reason why Christina founded her firm. Christina has created a supportive work environment for the team; an environment where everyone feels safe, valued for their contributions, empowered to be autonomous, and encouraged to pursue their interests, and, most of all, a place to find their happiness.

Christina received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the State University of New York at Albany, and her Juris Doctorate from Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts. Christina is licensed to practice in all New York State Courts as well as the United States District Court of the Northern District of New York.
