Bio's

Christine Burchett

Christine is a legal practitioner whose legal focus is in wills and estates, residential real estate and commercial transactions. Christine possesses years of legal and commercial transaction experience, gained within national and global companies, public service environments, and as an independent consultant.

Christine is a persuasive communicator with an extraordinary ability to develop relationships built on integrity, respect and trust. Christine facilitates and leads simple to complex business and legal negotiations with passion, dedication and humor, through a win-win approach.

Originally from Hawaii, Christine began her professional career as an electrical engineer with Boeing. Christine successfully transitioned to a career in law where, surprisingly enough, her first legal roles were as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, specializing in controlled substance felony prosecutions; an Associate Attorney General for the local government in Saipan, a small Pacific island; and then as a lawyer in private practice.

Christine returned to North America and settled in Ontario in 1998 where she leveraged her legal and engineering experience at a global aircraft manufacturing company by successfully facilitating and leading new and used aircraft sale, lease, acquisition and associated financing transactions world-wide. Her commercial transaction success continued with a global Tier 1 electronics manufacturing company, a highly recognized facility and property management company, and a multi-billion dollar global oil and gas company.

Christine holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering from Gonzaga University and a law degree from Seattle University School of Law. Christine was licensed to practice law in Washington State (1993) and The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (1996) and is still licensed to practice in the U.S. District Court NMI. Christine successfully pursued her license to practice law in Ontario and willingly traded a career in a large corporate environment for a more balanced life working in her own small law firm near her home.

Christine is an enthusiastic snowmobiler, a voracious reader, enjoys the practice of Aikido, and is a life-long supporter of wildlife and wildlife habitat conservation efforts.
