Christen Civiletto is an attorney, author, and adjunct law school professor.
She’s passionate about exploring the intersection of faith, environmental justice, and the law. She enjoys staying up on current events, reading great fiction, hiking in South Carolina, and spending quality time with family and friends.
Christen experienced a wake-up call after wondering why she and so many other residents in her hometown of Niagara Falls, New York, were dealing with cancer or other terrible diseases. She began to research the area’s environmental history, and her findings led to the writing of Green City Savior—an environmentally themed suspense novel set in Niagara Falls, New York. Christen is part of a team of attorneys who've filed lawsuits on behalf of Niagara Falls residents stemming from the historic Love Canal disaster.
Christen previously authored Full Disclosure: The New Lawyer’s Must-Read Career Guide (ALM 2001), a practical mentoring guide for first through fourth year lawyers. She co-authored The Practice of Law School: Getting In and Making The Most of Your Legal Education (ALM 2003). Her articles have appeared in national print and online publications, including The National Law Journal, NYLawyer.com, and law.com.
She lives in Western New York with her family.
