“I had the privilege of working with Christina Ghio in two law offices. I was the Managing Attorney when Christina came to work at the New Hampshire Public Defender, and was happy to have her join me when I left NHPD to go the Disabilities Rights Center. We worked together for five years. Christina is an excellent attorney with outstanding research and writing skills, as well as a very caring manner with her clients. She is an excellent listener and takes what she learns from her clients to pursue their goals in court, mediation, and negotiation. I would highly recommend her for representation in both adult and juvenile matters.”
Amy Messer, Legal Director at Disabilities Rights Center
“When we worked together at the NH Public Defender, Attorney Ghio was the “go-to” person for juvenile delinquency matters, and was responsible for training and supervising lawyers in the state’s 2 largest offices in properly handling juvenile matters. Attorney Ghio is a smart, hard-working, and dedicated lawyer. She is a strong voice for juveniles in the justice process, and a tireless advocate for children and young adults. I have the greatest respect for Attorney Ghio, and would recommend her to clients without reservation.”
Richard Samdperil, Partner/Attorney at Samdperil & Welsh, PLLC
“Christina is a zealous and gifted advocate and policymaker on behalf of vulnerable children and their families. She successfully implemented significant statewide reforms on behalf of children involved in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. She also advocated successfully on behalf of the rights of individual children, provided consultation and training to attorneys and judges and represented the Office of the Child Advocate (OCA) in legal action and negotiations on behalf of children with significant mental health needs. Her work at the OCA exemplifies her unique expertise with the systems that are obligated to respond and care for children in Connecticut.”

“Attorney Ghio worked with my family during a most challenging time for us. Her
compassion, knowledge, and confidence helped guide us in a direction that
ultimately benefited my child in the best way possible. Both she and her paralegal,
Emilee Guerrera, treated me with respect and kindness throughout this period even
when my emotions were running high. I am eternally grateful to them for their
work on my son’s behalf.”

“Christina did a great job representing us. She is thorough, confident and knowledgeable. She was familiar with the law and the school that she recommended our son attend. She responded promptly and was easy to understand. She was dependable and thorough and we are very happy with the results.”

Attorney Ghio is qualified, knowledgeable, clear, concise, detail oriented and compassionate! Yes, we were dealing with law, legal options, benefits, disadvantages, and options. Attorney Ghio NEVER lost sight of MY CHILD and what was best for her within it all. I am so grateful!
