CGA Law Firm recognizes Paralegal Christine Bland for her remarkable 20 years of service. She embarked on her journey at CGA as a municipal paralegal, a role tailored to support the firm’s expanding municipal practice group. “Chris has been a true asset to CGA and our municipal law department.  She is smart, hard-working, and always willing to go above and beyond.  I truly value her expertise, dedication, and commitment to excellence,” stated Municipal Practice Group Chair Devon Myers.

Chris’ contributions extend to serving over 35 municipalities and collaborating with 12 municipal attorneys, all while providing support to attorneys in various practice areas. She finds joy in research, writing, problem-solving, and interacting with clients and attorneys. For the majority of her tenure at CGA, she was the sole municipal paralegal, playing a pivotal role in expanding the firm’s municipal clientele and department. “It has been a pleasure to work with Christine for 20 years in our Municipal Department.  Chris had little municipal experience when she started, but she worked hard to quickly get a grasp on the issues and has grown over the years into an incredible resource for us as attorneys at CGA and for our many municipal clients.  We have been very fortunate to have had Chris for these 20 years, and she has been a great colleague”, states President Craig Sharnetzka.

Outside of work, Chris cherishes moments with her family. She is often seen supporting her children at sporting events like baseball, basketball, and track meets. CGA Law Firm extends its heartfelt appreciation to Chris for her exceptional work ethic and loyalty. Congratulations, Chris, on this well-deserved recognition, and thank you for your ongoing commitment.
