Christin joined Petway, French & Ford as an Associate in 2019. Prior to becoming an Associate, she served as a paralegal for the firm's predecessor, Fuston, Petway & French. 

Christin graduated from Clark Atlanta University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology in 2006. She received her Juris Doctorate degree from the Birmingham School of Law in 2012. While attending law school, Christin served as a law clerk at the law firm of Gray, Langford, Sapp, McGowan & Nathanson.

What does Christin like most about the practice of law?

"As cliché as it sounds, I love being an attorney because I love helping people. This profession gives me an opportunity to be of service to a variety of clients in various capacities, and it never gets boring. The feeling of reward after you have fought so hard for a client to recover what they really and truly deserve is absolutely amazing. That feeling is even better when your clients know that you have gone the distance for them, and they are pleased with the result of your hard work and dedication to serve them."

What does Christin like most about practicing at Petway, French & Ford?

"I love the fact that the attorneys and staff at the firm are more of a family, and we operate as such. Although we are a small firm, we are mighty in the quality of representation and service to our clients. At our firm, no one person is bigger than the team. We literally live by that daily, and it takes every single one of us to provide excellent representation and service to our clients, no matter how big or small."
