“We couldn’t be more thrilled to expand our services to Florida, and welcome Christine to the team, as Gilson Daub goes coast to coast,” remarked Brent Daub, senior founding partner of Gilson Daub. “As a very experienced attorney who has been practicing workers’ comp litigation for more than 20 years, Christine combines deep institutional knowledge of our field with a strong network of clients across Florida.  She also has an unwavering commitment to client service, which is testament to her work ethic and makes her a perfect fit for our clients and team as we continue our growth trajectory into this new year.”

She is also certified by the State of Florida as an instructor of Insurance Education for workers’ compensation adjusters. Prior to working at Gilson Daub, she was with Testan Law and managed her own law office for 15 years. She is active in the community and was appointed by the Florida Governor to the South Florida Regional Planning Council where she served as a council member. She was also named Businesswoman of the year by the National Congressional Committee’s Business Advisory Council.
