Christine Graves is an experienced appellate advocate, regularly handling all aspects of appellate litigation in the Florida Supreme Court, all five of Florida’s district courts of appeal, and the Eleventh Circuit Courts of Appeals. Ms. Graves concentrates her practice on constitutional litigation, complex commercial litigation, medical malpractice, personal injury, health care, products liability, and insurance coverage issues. She has represented large corporations, insurance companies, manufacturers, and governmental entities, among others, in all of these areas. 

In addition to her traditional appellate work, a large part of Ms. Graves's practice involves providing legal assistance at trial. This work involves extensive involvement as appellate counsel at the trial level, which serves to take the pressure off trial counsel who are dealing with the many intricacies and complex issues involved in preparing for trial. For example, she routinely attends trial and assists with general trial strategy, drafting and arguing complex legal motions both before and during trial, as well as case dispositive motions, jury instructions, and post-trial motions.

Ms. Graves is board certified in Appellate Practice by The Florida Bar. She has been listed in Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite as an “Up and Comer” and selected as a “Rising Star” by Florida Super Lawyers every year since 2010. 

Prior to joining the firm, she served as law clerk to the Honorable Charles T. Wells of the Florida Supreme Court.
