MLFA’s Christina A. Jump Selected as a Super Lawyer


Congratulations to our own Civil Litigation Department Head, Christina A. Jump, who was recently honored as a Super Lawyer in the state of Texas by Super Lawyers magazine on October 5, 2022!


We already know she’s super:



  • She has taken cases on behalf of our clients to the Circuit courts, one step below the Supreme Court, more than a dozen times so far.
  • She has presented oral arguments in Circuit courts across the country, from Oregon, California and Illinois to Virginia and Washington, D.C.
  • She has petitioned the Supreme Court of the United States five times on behalf of our clients
  • She supports other lawyers’ cases benefitting our community with amicus (“friend of the court”) briefs to both the Circuit courts and the Supreme Court.

We are glad to see SuperLawyers recognize her skills now as well!

This recognition is reserved for only the top 5% of attorneys in each state.

This is the fourth time in her long career that Christy has been recognized as a Super Lawyer. SuperLawyers determines the best lawyers in the state through an assessment of professional achievement and peer feedback.


“Being selected to Super Lawyers is limited to a small number of attorneys in each state. As one of the few attorneys to garner the distinction of Super Lawyers, Christina Jump has earned the respect of peers as one of the top-rated attorneys in the nation.” – official statement from Super Lawyers


Christy credits the entire Civil Litigation Department for superb teamwork. “They make me look good,” she observed. “Nothing leaves our doors without opinions and work from multiple people, so all of our filings truly represent a great team effort. I need the paralegals because they step up where I’m weaker on formatting, and the Staff Attorneys and Research Attorneys make it possible for us to have quality arguments for as many cases as we handle. Without our team, I would only be able to do about a tenth of what we can do together, and it wouldn’t look as good. I consider this an honor reflecting the whole team, not just me.”
