Christina Carson

Ms. Carson started her career as a crime reporter for a daily newspaper. There she learned how to quickly identify relevant and compelling facts and interview individuals from all walks of life. This early experience outside of the law has given Ms. Carson a valuable skill set few attorneys master in a lifetime.

Ms. Carson elected to change careers when a high score on the LSAT won her a full scholarship to California Western School of Law. While in law school, Ms. Carson served as a writer and editor for California Western’s two law reviews and saw her article, “Lords of the Manor: Fighting California Slumlords with Private Multi-Plaintiff Implied Warranty of Habitability Litigation,” accepted for publication. Ms. Carson graduated cum laude in 2011 and joined Potter Handy while awaiting bar results.

At Potter Handy, Ms. Carson has participated in the litigation of thousands of cases, from intake to judgement. She is well versed in all aspects of state and federal discovery and has prepared hundreds of matters for trial in federal court. In addition to court litigation experience, Ms. Carson has litigated hundreds of employment claims through JAMS and AAA. Currently Ms. Carson is primarily working in law firm management and the employment law group.

Ms. Carson is admitted to practice law in California, including all federal districts and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal. Ms. Carson lives in Northern California with her husband, son, and ornate box turtle named Morla.
