First-degree sex offense, drug trafficking, statutory rape, felony assault, and first-degree murder: that’s part of Christon Halkiotis’s professional life. A heavy burden in our eyes.
From Junior League to writing a book, Christon finds meaning outside of work. She also finds meaning with work: like wearing pink on purpose to dismantle the State’s case, as she would say. For fifteen years, Christon was a district attorney, then everything changed. Why? How? And for what?
Today, you’ll find Christon as the owner of her law firm, representing people accused of violating law and, more specifically, helping those get out of jail whose rights have been violated.
She’s also a mountain climber and supporter of her mother who, in 2013, was diagnosed with incurable blood cancer. For a person who carries such heavy burdens, whether for herself or for others, how does Christon keep life light? Let’s see what she has to say about that. Welcome to the human lawyer podcast, Christon.
