Christina L. Usher

Christina L. Usher joined the firm as a clerk in 2011 while still in law school and then became a full-time attorney in 2013 after graduating and passing the bar. Christina grew up in Lincoln but moved to Philadelphia to attend college and stayed in the New York area after graduation, working as a corporate accountant for large multi-national organizations.

After nearly two decades as an accountant, Christina moved back to Lincoln to attend law school and reinvest in her home town. Christina’s extensive accounting and business background provides a strong foundation for her practice areas of estate planning, real estate transactions, tax, business formations and contracts.
