Kristie M. Falbo is a Houston native who worked as a prosecutor for nine years in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania before returning to her home state of Texas.
She brings her significant courtroom experience to the Law Offices of Mark M. Childress. Kristie has applied her legal prowess in about 50 jury trials, plus hundreds of bench trials and hearings. Thorough research provides the backbone for her strong presentation skills demonstrated before judges and juries.
Distinguishing herself quickly as a prosecutor, Kristie was assigned her own homicide case with less than three years in the office. Kristie was promoted to a supervisory position after only four years. She shared her knowledge with others by teaching at the police academy and a local community college.
Her trademark approach to every case is to be clearheaded and logical while remaining sensitive and emphatic to the difficulties each client faces.
Kristie matriculated at Pepperdine University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies, with an emphasis in Political Science and a minor in Sociology. While in undergraduate school, she worked one semester as a Congressional intern in Washington, D.C., and spent summers studying in Buenos Aires and South Africa.
She graduated with her Juris Doctor in 2013 from Widener University School of Law (now Widener Law Commonwealth). She was a member of Law Review and Moot Court. Her awards include the Widener Law Journal Award for Distinguished Legal Scholarship and the Widener University School of Law Outstanding Service Award. Kristie’s dedication to her studies put her on the Dean’s List for four semesters. She also received Certificates of Achievement in Legal Methods II and Criminal Law and was honored to be named to a summer internship at FEMA in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
When she is not practicing law, Kristie enjoys spending time with her family and playing with her dog, Penelope.
