Christy had always been to eager to learn how the legal system worked. Throughout her education, she began to feel a burning desire to advocate for those who couldn’t advocate for themselves.
That passion for being an advocate continued in college. Christy was a champion debater and honed her skills not only in the classroom but as a voice for victims.
She graduated from the University of Nevada at Reno with double bachelor’s degrees in political science and English and then moved on to Willamette University School of Law to receive her J.D..
Christy became a personal injury lawyer in Arizona and launched Thompson Law Firm in 2005, armed with the idea that if she owned her own firm, she could steer the ship and create her vision of helping people.
Specializing in automobile accident cases with a focus on the victims of drunk driving has enabled her to bring that vision to life.
