Attorney Crist has almost three decades of experience advocating on behalf of employees. Early in her career, she worked in a large law firm employment and labor law group as an associate. Most of that early work was on the employer or defendant side of cases giving her a deep understanding of employer tactics such as paper trail building and use of disciplinary policy, in an attempt to build a defense against employment related charges.
