Christine Greene currently practices domestic relations law and is experienced in immigration, civil litigation and post-conviction law. She has represented clients before the D.C. Superior Court, the Court of Appeals of Maryland and the U.S. District Court of Maryland.

As a consultant for the American Bar Association, Christine surveyed U.S. public defense attorneys to identify current comprehensive pretrial practices and, based on the results of her survey, created a toolkit which will provide a baseline reference point and resource guide for pretrial public defenders. This toolkit is published on the American Bar Association's website and will be administered to defense attorneys nationally to aid in improving the quality of pretrial representation for defendants nationwide.

Christine is a passionate family advocate with a solid record of winning positive results for her clients--many of whom are traditionally underrepresented in the court system. Christine served on the board of the Rappahannock Council for Children and Parents, a nonprofit organization that promotes positive parenting and the prevention of child abuse and neglect.

Christine earned her BA in psychology from the University of Virginia and her JD from the Washington and Lee University School of Law. She co-authored the article, “African American Family Life: The Dynamics of Interactions, Relationships, and Roles,” which is published in New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development 1995:68, 5. Christine is licensed to practice in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and the U.S. District Court District of Maryland.
