Christina M. Dieckmann
Senior Staff Attorney, Criminal Defense Practice
Christina was born and raised in the Boston area. The daughter of a litigator, she was found one day at the age of two walking around the house carrying her mother’s briefcase. When asked what she was doing, she replied, “going to court.” After this incident, it was only a matter of time before Christina would end up with a briefcase of her own, headed out the door to court for real.
Christina joined Brooklyn Defender Services in 2011 after graduating from law school. She handles a full caseload of felony and misdemeanor cases, and has litigated a variety of suppression hearings and multiple jury trials to verdict. She is admitted to the New York bar.
Christina is a graduate of Columbia Law School, where she was a Managing Editor of the Human Rights Law Review and a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Sarah Lawrence College. In her free time, she is an avid long-distance hiker and skier.
