Founding Attorney Christina Hollwarth

As so many Texans say, “I wasn’t born here, but I got here as fast as I could!” Christina considers herself a Longview-native, having lived here since the age of three. A 1996 Longview High School graduate, she earned her Bachelor of Arts in political science with a minor in Bible from Abilene Christian University. She received her Juris Doctor from Texas Tech University School of Law in 2003 and was admitted to practice law in the State of Texas that same year.

Christina has practiced law in Longview since 2003, opening her own private family law practice in 2005. In 2007, she completed training to serve as a mediator in civil cases, family law cases, and cases involving Child Protective Services.

Regarding her practice, Christina has this to say: “Children are my passion; therefore, I have built a family law practice that focuses on protecting children through the legal process. Whether you’re seeking to establish paternity, going through a divorce, or back in court for custody and/or child support matters, I will do the best I can to help you achieve a result that you are pleased with and that is in the best interest of your children. Through the process, my loyalty is to you, my client, but I will challenge you to remember that your first loyalty is to your children.”

On a personal note, Christina has been married to Kyle Hollwarth since 2001, and they have two children, Joshua and Julia. They are members of Longview Christian Church.
