My focus in my work is the human component. I approach each potential deal with the intention of it being a match that enhances the lives of all parties involved. A productive and strong law firm is highly dependent upon the satisfaction of its people.

Christine Meade, a Director in our Miami office, focuses on the recruitment of associate attorneys for law firm clients. Christine has been with Major, Lindsey & Africa for more than 10 years and has been part of a team that has brokered some of the most important lateral moves and office openings throughout Florida and Latin America in the past decade. Christine places associate attorneys with international, national, regional and boutique law firms throughout Florida and nationally. She also works with our Partner Practice Group to develop relationships with local law firm partners and, with her team, has been instrumental in facilitating partner-level deals on behalf of AmLaw 100 clients.

Christine hails from Westchester County, New York, and has been living in South Florida for 12 years. She is fluent in Spanish. When not in the office, Christine can be found exploring her passions of cooking, reading historical biographies, traveling, exercising and spending time with her daughter and family.
