In addition, Christie also represents landlord and tenants in commercial

Prior to re-joining Maynard in 2015, Christie served as
corporate counsel in the Legal Department at BBVA USA where she gained
significant experience in the commercial lending area. Christie’s prior work
also includes the representation of lenders and other secured and unsecured
creditors in commercial bankruptcy and reorganization proceedings, loan
workouts and debt restructuring efforts, and commercial litigation matters.
Christie received her J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law and holds a B.A. from Dartmouth College. Christie was recently acknowledged as a Birmingham Business Journal “NextGenBHM” Law Honoree.
“Her attention to every detail and stellar drafting work, coupled with her ability to juggle the multiple parties and their respective legal counsel, all the while keeping me informed and the transaction moving along seamlessly, is a rarity . . . She is personable, professional and prompt. When she speaks for us with third parties and lenders, I know that the conversations will be productive and fruitful. She is among the best legal advocates that I have encountered but she communicates in a way where everyone is pleased with the outcome. Due to both her strong technical work and communication style, we have developed a great trust in Christie.”
