As an 11-year member of Haynes and Boone’s appellate section, Christina Crozier has developed a practice centered around effective writing, persuasive oral advocacy, and litigation strategy. Christina has presented oral arguments before the Texas Supreme Court and numerous Texas courts of appeals. She has also authored legal briefing in the Fifth, Ninth, and Eleventh Circuits and the United States Supreme Court.
In addition to her work in appellate courts, Christina is regularly chosen to serve as appellate counsel on trial teams. By taking a strategic approach to legal briefing—including for example, motions for summary judgment, motions to strike experts, and motions to exclude evidence—Christina’s work can significantly impact the value of a case before trial even begins. When cases proceed to trial, Christina handles the jury charge, arguments to the court, and error preservation, freeing trial lawyers to devote their time to the presentation of the evidence.
Christina’s cases cover a wide range of areas such as personal injury, oil and gas, and general business disputes. She is a regular writer and speaker on a variety of topics, including error preservation, arbitration-related litigation, and attorneys’ fees. She has been recognized in Texas Super Lawyers - Rising Stars Edition by Thomson Reuters for six years.
A native Houstonian, Christina is active in her community. Christina chairs the Pro Bono Committee of the Houston Bar Association Appellate Section, which matches volunteer attorneys with clients who are unable to afford legal representation in the court of appeals. Christina is also on the board of the Women’s Fund for Health Education and Resiliency, an organization dedicated to teaching local women and girls about health and resilience.
