Christina attended the University of Florida for her undergraduate and law school studies. During her last year at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, she began her career in criminal law as a Certified Legal Intern with the Hillsborough County State Attorney’s Office and interned with several Circuit and Federal Judges. Christina graduated law school and moved to Tampa where she began her legal career as a Prosecutor with the Office of the State Attorney, 13th Judicial Circuit, in Hillsborough County. During her time as a prosecutor, Christina tried numerous Felony, Misdemeanor and Juvenile cases. Christina transitioned into the civil sector of the law where she expanded her legal experience to include representing insurance policyholders across the State of Florida in lawsuits against their insurers. She has also represented national mortgage banks in foreclosures.

In 2008, Christina joined The Matassini Law Firm where she specializes in criminal defense, plaintiff’s personal injury and wrongful death. Christina’s experience as a Prosecutor helped her gain perspective of the criminal justice system and how the government establishes its cases.

The experience you need in your pursuit of justice

The greatest distinguishing feature among attorneys is their level of experience. Our firm has more than 60 years of legal experience, much of it spent in the courtroom at trial. As a result, our Tampa personal injury lawyers rarely encounter an unfamiliar situation and can thoroughly answer your urgent questions. Our criminal defense practice features a board certified criminal trial lawyer and two former prosecutors with impressive knowledge of trial tactics and procedures.

The resources to provide quality representation for the length of your case

Whether your case involves medical malpractice, an auto accident or a wrongful death, your attorney must be prepared to take the case all the way through trial to verdict. Many personal injury attorneys advance the cost of litigation, so they can only last so long before financial pressures start to mount. As a client, you have to wonder whether an attorney's advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneys need to get paid. Fortunately, The Matassini Law Firm has the resources to pursue civil verdicts and settlements that reflect the actual value of your case.
