After graduating from Harvard Law School, Christian worked for years at preeminent Boston firms where he represented plaintiffs and defendants in complex civil litigation matters and appeals. Christian gained extensive experience handling actions from the initial complaint through to final judgment, and representing clients at mediations, arbitrations, trials, and appeals. He then founded a smaller firm so that he could offer his clients all that he learned while practicing at large law firms along with providing them with more direct contact and closer attention. Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly has covered some of Christian’s victories in front page articles.
Christian also earned a doctorate in American history from Boston College and he writes and speaks about American history. A recent talk of his, about Lincoln and the Thirteenth Amendment, was broadcast on C-SPAN (watch it here). Christian is the author or editor of several books, among them Lincoln and the Thirteenth Amendment and Becoming American under Fire: Irish Americans, African Americans, and the Politics of Citizenship during the Civil War Era. Christian has written articles for The Wall Street Journal and Forbes.com and he teaches constitutional and legal history at Boston University School of Law.
