Christina Sears is a trial attorney. She enjoys litigating cases the way other people might enjoy participating in competitive sports. Constant study of the law, strategy and public speaking are passionate endeavors that Christina uses to connect with juries at every opportunity. She admires Albert Einstein’s quote that “if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” She draws on commonly held principles and widely accepted beliefs to tell juries a brand new and exciting story that they already know and identify with; one of her favorite sources is Aesop’s Fables because they are short, easy to grasp and remember.
She is inspired by trial lawyers and highly accomplished public speakers like President Barack Obama and consummate professionals with superb interview styles like Oprah Winfrey, who have reached the pinnacle of their respective careers through hard work, talent, effective communication and a passion for service to others.
She is a summa cum laude graduate of Howard University (‘02), where she earned Dean’s List honors and scholarships and Tulane University Law School (L05), where as a student she earned accolades and awards for her trial advocacy skills. After graduation, she served as an Assistant Solicitor with the DeKalb County Solicitor’s Office in Decatur, Georgia. For eight years she prosecuted felony offenses, later specializing in Crimes Against Women and Children as a sex crimes prosecutor with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office in Atlanta, Georgia. Christina is currently in her sixteenth year of legal practice and has tried more than thirty jury trials.
Christina is an avid traveler and reader and her favorite books are coming of age tales (The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho) and books about the African American experience (Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi). She also enjoys speaking to students for career day at local schools.
