Christina completed her Bachelor of Arts in Criminology with a Policing Studies Certificate from Simon Fraser University in 2012, and her Juris Doctor from Thompson Rivers University Faculty of Law in 2015.

Christina focuses primarily on family law, civil litigation, and estate litigation. While Christina prides herself on her strong advocacy skills in the courtroom, Christina understands that resolving disputes outside of court can sometimes be more effective. Christina emphasizes the importance of tailoring strategies unique to each dispute and client.

Christina has appeared in the Provincial Court, and the Court of Queen’s Bench for both ex parte and contested applications. Christina also has experience appearing before administrative tribunals.

Prior to law school, Christina worked in Corrections, as a Kickboxing Instructor, and as an Outreach Worker assisting clients with developmental disabilities.

Outside of professional life, Christina plays on a local dodgeball team once a week, and enjoys walking her dog, Bentley.

Fire in her eyes!

“The first time I met with Christina I could see the fire in her eyes, which gave me full confidence that we had chosen the correct lawyer. Recently helping and succeeding in a win with a messy relocation case, she left no stone unturned. I cannot express the gratitude, and would highly recommend this small but mighty woman.”

Very pleased!

“Christina Matthews was hired for our civil litigation case. We were very pleased with her quality of work. Christina worked hard, responded to e-mails promptly, and took the time to explain the litigation process to us. Christina is very professional and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Christina Matthews for any legal service.”

Highly recommended!

“Christina came highly recommended from my mother who had hired her for her divorce. My mom had went through many lawyers prior to Christina who made the process drawn out and exhausting. She is also so grateful for Christina. Christina is knowledgeable, kind and incredibly intelligent. She's amazing in court. I can't even begin to explain how wonderful she is. You will not be disappointed!”

She is a good listener!

“I highly recommend Christina Matthews. She is a good listener and a very strong advocate. She takes a realistic approach to problem solving and is the type of person you want in your corner should your matter end up in court.”

One hell of a lawyer!

“Christina Matthews - one hell of a lawyer. She took on our high conflict custody case and knocked it out of the park. Christina didn’t back down to opposing senior counsel, and pushed back on several Judges in a professional way ensuring she got our point across securing the result we wanted. Being a father in the family court system is not easy, Christina made sure I was in good hands. She replies extremely promptly, is on time for all deadlines, and bills fairly. I highly recommend.”
