R. James Christie III



I take great pride in zeaoulously representing individuals who have been accused of criminal wrongdoing.  Standing up on behalf of Alaskans against the police, the prosecuting authorities, and the government is why I became a lawyer, and is the single most rewarding aspect of my career.

I was born and raised in Alaska, and am familiar with the unique challenges and opportunities our great state has to offer.

While no attorney can promise you a particular outcome, I make the same promise to all of my clients: I will zealously and aggressively represent you to the best of my ability, communicate with you and thoroughly explain your options, and work with you in pursuit of the best possible outcome to your case.
