The staff at Legal Aid’s Lawton Law Office describes Christine Galbraith as a pleasure to work with and a joy to know.
For the past year, Christine has donated pro bono legal assistance to clients in the Lawton area through her work with LASO clients. “She is always willing to take on any type of case and to learn new areas of the law.” stated Donna Ellsworth, PAI Coordinator and paralegal, “I appreciate her immensely.”
She has represented LASO clients for divorce and one client for emancipation. Christine has also represented a veteran appellant on behalf of the Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program in the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
In 2012, Christine graduated with a Juris Doctor from Oklahoma City University School of Law. She then served as a Domestic Abuse Victim Advocate contractor for the Department of the Army. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English from James Madison University. Prior to practicing law, Christine held multiple job positions at the National Sheriff’s Association.
The Lawton Law Office staff recognized Christine at the Comanche County Bar Association Law Day Luncheon in May with an award of appreciation for her pro bono work.
As a volunteer attorney, Christine helps achieve successful outcomes for low-income persons who may find themselves in a difficult civil legal situation. Thank you to Christine who shares a common interest in LASO’s mission to help make access to justice a reality for all.
