Christian was born and raised in the East New York neighborhood of Brooklyn. As the youngest son of first generation Italian-Americans, Christian learned at a young age to stand up for his beliefs. He enjoyed verbally sparring with his older relatives and knew by the age of eight that he was going to be a trial lawyer. He enjoys the challenge of standing up for the little guy.
Christian attended St. John’s University School of Law, graduating cum laude, in 1993. He was on the Dean’s List and wrote for the Law Review. Christian’s first position was with a nationally known plaintiff’s personal injury firm and tried his first case to a successful verdict against Mobil Oil within two months of being admitted to the bar. He has been trying cases ever since.
Christian’s next experience was in the public sector as an Assistant Corporation Counsel in the Brooklyn Tort Division. He tried major cases involving horrific injuries against some of the best attorneys in the country.
In 2001, Christian returned to private practice once again representing individuals who have been severely injured through the negligence of others. He has been recognized by his peers as a Super Lawyer. The toughness and grit that he learned at a young age have stayed with him through the years as many of his adversaries would attest.
