Dayton, Ohio

Christie, an associate at Altick & Corwin, works primarily in immigration law. She has a background in public interest law, having just completed a national year of service with AmeriCorps, before joining Altick & Corwin. In her year of service, she worked with immigrants in Greater Dayton and developed an understanding of the challenges they face as well as the richness they add to their communities. This experience has led to her continued desire to serve this population.


Christie has a broad base of legal experience in other areas of law including family law, probate, public benefit law, workers’ compensation, and criminal law. She gained this experience completing a fellowship at a law firm in Cleveland, OH as well as working for the Ohio Attorney General.

Christie is a graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Law where she was Vice President and then President of The St. Thomas More Society. While in law school, she concentrated on business law, which, combined with her love of Spanish, led her to complete a semester of law school in Madrid, Spain at La Universidad Pontificia Comillas. In Spain, Christie studied many facets of international law and European business law with students from all over the world.

Although Christie’s love of culture, language, and people has taken her all over the world, she completed her undergraduate work in Ohio at The University of Dayton. She studied Political Science and Catholic Social Teaching; completed all of the university’s honor’s program requirements in three years and graduated Cum Laude. She is very proud to be a UD Flyer!


When Christie is not practicing law, she can be found at Immaculate Conception Parish, teaching yoga, running marathons, and swimming with her local swim team The Dayton Sharks.
