Rising Stars are 40 years of age or younger or have been in practice for 10 years or less. Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state receive this honor.

Kristina’s practice spans a variety of industries in which she predominantly represents commercial property owners, commercial property management companies, agents/brokers, and business owners. Kristina is known for using unique and innovative solutions to handle her clients’ legal needs. She has successfully negotiated complex business deals and large commercial leases and secured favorable results for her clients in court. Kristina routinely serves as a DRC Judge Pro Tem for the El Dorado County Superior Court. She earned her J.D. from McGeorge School of Law in 2000 and her B.S. from Christopher Newport University in 1995. Kristina is admitted to practice law in California and Virginia.
Attorneys selected for inclusion in the list of Super Lawyers and Rising Stars are nominated by their peers before undergoing “rigorous” evaluations in a number of areas of “peer recognition and professional achievement,” according to Super Lawyers selection process. The objective, the magazine says, is to “create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys.” Recognition is based on surveys of approximately 52,000 active lawyers in Northern California, independent research by Super Lawyers magazine, and review and recommendation by practice-area panels of top lawyers.
