Christine Heinsz (Associate)

PRINT

Christine focuses her practice in civil litigation, particularly the defense of asbestos personal injury matters, class actions, real estate litigation, and employment-related disputes. Christine is responsible for preparing numerous defense motions and, given her business background in technology, handles many of the firm's electronic discovery issues. In asbestos matters, she regularly defends the firm's clients at depositions of plaintiffs and co-workers.

Prior to receiving her law degree, Christine earned her MBA from the University of Chicago and worked for several years in the technology industry. During law school, she clerked for the Missouri Office of the Attorney General, Consumer Protection Division, and for a St. Louis law firm assisting with products liability, insurance and medical malpractice cases. Christine was a member of the Law Review: Journal of Law and Policy. She also participated in Moot Court and was a member of the Trial and Advocacy Team. Christine joined the firm's Edwardsville office as an associate in August 2005.
