Attorney at Law, Founder and Managing Director
Innovative. Intuitive. Intelligent. Inspired. It is this unique combination of characteristics that make Christina stand out, not only as a litigator, but also as a leader as she embarks to build a legal practice based on modern day principles of activism, technological innovation, and client relations. The corporate motto – Protecting family. Pursuing justice. Promoting philanthropy. Pioneering the future. . . – is the first hint that this is not your old-school law practice, often too focused on billing and the bottom line when your feelings, your safety, or your livelihood are at stake. Rather, Christina brings a fresh perspective to an old business: "The true value of a Law Office is the people it serves,” says Ms. Bostick. “With people, come relationships. New relationships breed blossoming opportunities. Opportunity creates new ideas from which justice can spring, businesses can be raised, and families can triumph, even in the face of adversity. In this way, we all build wealth together, support one another, and grow into a future the collective can be proud of.”
Christina attended Spelman College where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in English. She earned her Juris Doctorate from Georgetown University Law Center as a Keller Foundation Scholarship recipient. While attending Georgetown, she served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Modern Critical Race Perspectives and published her student note : A Barrel of Laughs? Or, A River of Tears: The Problems with African Americans Using Comedy to Air Dirty Laundry.
Director of Operations
Padheyssa has always known it was her calling to help people who are unable to help themselves and her life has been a clear demonstration of answering that call. She transformed her passion into action by serving as both a medical advocate and a surgical technician in the Miami Medical System. There she advocated for patients with challenging medical issues. In addition, she used fluency in French, Creole and English to translate technical communications between doctors and patients. In doing so, she established an environment where patients could find comfort in being better informed about procedures and treatment options. She also helped alleviate patient anxiety.
After spending several years in the medical field, Padheyssa relocated to Maryland where she she started her own business – I Assist. There she devoted her time to support various professionals in their individual human rights and philanthropic pursuits. Through that entrepreneurial endeavor, she was connected with Bostick Law Office where she and the company’s founder's collective passions for social change, advocacy and activism propelled the business forward. In her role at Bostick Law Office, Padheyssa builds creative systems to reach out to people who require legal assistance. According to Padhyessa, "[s]uccess cannot be measured by one’s pursuit to achieve financial security; rather, it is about using your passion to make a difference in people’s lives and reaping the benefits of doing so by whatever means that the universe chooses to compensate you.”
After graduating from high school with honors, Padheyssa earned an Associate’s Degree in surgical technology from the Everest Institute.
