The Commission on Hispanic Legal Rights and Responsibilities focuses on developing and supporting initiatives and research to educate lawyers on how best to serve, promote civic responsibility within, and address the key legal challenges facing the Latino community in the United States. The group is comprised of one Chair and nine members appointed by the ABA President. The mission of the Commission is to address the challenges and responsibilities facing Hispanics in and within the legal system of the United States.

Christina’s practice focuses mainly on business and healthcare transactions. Christina advises clients through a wide range of complex transactional matters from contract proposals to compliance inquiries. She uses her experience to provide clear, comprehensive solutions for each client’s unique needs. Christina worked as a judicial extern for The Honorable David Neil McCarty, Mississippi Court of Appeals in Jackson.

In 2023, Christina joined the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Pathfinder Program, a training program designed for diverse, high- potential, early – career attorneys to advance the next generation of leaders.
