Biography

Christine Renken is one of Brayton Purcell’s leading asbestos attorneys. She began her undergraduate studies as a chemistry major at the University of Southern California, but then quickly found her calling in law. After obtaining her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Sociology in 2001, she went on to attend Loyola Law School. During law school, Ms. Renken had the opportunity to work for a renowned appellate firm and intern with a Justice at the Court of Appeal, Second District. She also earned the First Honors Award for the highest grade in her Trial Advocacy class. Ms. Renken graduated from Loyola in 2004, was sworn in as an attorney in 2004, and went to work at a law firm handling mostly business litigation matters. But when she handled an elder abuse case, she felt her true calling of representing those who have been wronged.

Ms. Renken manages all pre-trial matters of a case, including conducting and responding to discovery, taking corporate representative depositions, and preparing and opposing pre-trial motions. She uses her writing skills to obtain key facts and documents from defendants and to defend against the numerous motions defendants file to try to get out of a lawsuit.
