BCG recruiter Christina Brown handles placements in Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. She also handles international placements.
Before joining BCG, she was an Assistant United States Attorney in Las Vegas, Nevada, where for more than ten years she prosecuted federal crimes including wire, bank and health care fraud; public corruption; identity theft; tax; money laundering; extortion; human trafficking; robbery; arson and firearms offenses. She won every jury and bench trial, and successfully argued on multiple occasions before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. She was recognized for her trial work in a notable case by the Department of Justice with a Director’s Award, and has spoken internationally to train law enforcement and foreign prosecutors on subjects including money laundering, examination of witnesses, and mutual legal assistance treaties.
As an AUSA, Ms. Brown helped spearhead a mentoring program and was a member of the hiring committee, valued for her “sixth sense” in interviewing prospective employees. She developed a passion for helping guide lawyers in their careers and her enjoyment of the career counseling process inspired her to pursue a full time career in legal recruiting.
She grew up on a small Kentucky horse farm, where her family raised Quarter Horses and American Saddlebred horses, and she continued riding for much of her adult life. As a child she studied piano, acting, dance and gymnastics and was selected to attend Louisville’s Youth Performing Arts School, where she studied voice. During high school and college she performed in alternative rock and top 40 bands, and she continues to play piano to unwind.
She attended college and law school at the University of Louisville, receiving her B.A. in English Literature with a minor in Psychology. Her love of the arts, combined with her father’s work as a federal judge, inspired Ms. Brown to attend law school to be an entertainment attorney. While in law school, her interest turned to criminal law and she devoted her career to criminal litigation, first as a public defender and then as a state and federal prosecutor.
In her free time, Ms. Brown enjoys reading mystery novels and psychology, attending concerts and shows, and spending time with friends. She takes every opportunity to travel, whether domestically or internationally. Some of her favorite trips included scuba diving in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands, and to Chile, Italy, Maui, and Ireland.
