About: Christina Mejia
Christina Mejia was born and raised in Florida, and she is proud to call this beautiful state her home. She attended the University of South Florida where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. Although Christina enjoyed advocating for students, she decided she wanted to advocate beyond the classroom. This led her to enroll in Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law in Orlando, Florida.
Christina excelled in law school by earning book awards for achieving the highest grade in several classes, gaining significant experience as a judicial extern in the Complex Business Litigation Court in the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court, and assisting attorneys at a civil law firm managing probate, estate planning, and family law cases.
After earning her Juris Doctor and immediately passing the bar exam, Christina joined a prestigious law firm in the greater Tampa Bay area. She represented several homeowners and commercial property owners throughout the state of Florida litigating property insurance disputes. During her years of practice, she discovered many issues that affect the elderly population and witnessed the importance of everyone having a solid estate plan. After recently getting married and moving to Sarasota, Christina proudly joined the WTPELF team and enjoys serving members in her community with their estate planning, probate, and elder law needs. On weekends, Christina enjoys grabbing a bite to eat at local farmers markets, soaking up the sun at Siesta Key beach, and spending time with her loving husband and big fat Greek family!
