Christina "Christy" O’Brien concentrates her practice in the areas of Divorce, Marital and Family Law. More specifically, her family law practice includes dissolution of marriage (divorce), custody, paternity, child support, domestic violence injunctions, post-judgment modifications and dependency issues. Christy understands that these types of cases can be highly emotionally charged, especially when there are children involved, and she will develop a parenting plan or marital settlement agreement that is tailored to the needs of each individual family.
Throughout her career, Christy has handled and tried both jury and non-jury trials in the Twentieth Judicial Circuit (Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Hendry and Glades Counties) and the Twelfth Judicial Circuit (Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto Counties) Florida. She is admitted to practice in all Florida State Courts, as well as the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
Prior to joining Henderson Franklin, Christy had her own practice in Fort Myers where she handled family law and civil cases. Christy resides in Fort Myers with her husband, Aaron O’Brien and three sons, Ben, Sam and Max. In her spare time, she enjoys running, traveling and boating with her family.
Christy serves on the Board of Directors for the Coalition for a Drug-Free Southwest Florida, Lee County Legal Aid Society, and Fort Myers American Little League. She is a former member of the Association of Family Law Professionals and Family Resource Center of Southwest Florida Board of Directors.
Christy is active in the Family Section of the Florida Bar. She is also a member of the Lee County Bar Association, the Association of Family Law Professionals, and the Lee County Association of Women Lawyers. Christy is also a member of the Fort Myers Track Club.
