High Swartz, a full-service law firm with offices in Norristown and Doylestown PA, is pleased to announce that Chelsey A. Christiansen Esq. has joined the firms’ family law and litigation practices.
High Swartz LLP has recently added Chelsey A. Christiansen Esq. to the firm’s family law and litigation practices. Chelsey is barred in Pennsylvania and most recently barred in New Jersey. She joins High Swartz after completing her judicial clerkship with the Honorable David R. Workman, Administrative Family Law Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Lancaster County.
Prior to her clerkship, Ms. Christiansen clerked at Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg & Gifford P.C. of Lansdale, Pennsylvania where she focused on litigation drafting and occasionally shared her legal knowledge on Legally Speaking, a local radio show. Prior to this position, Chelsey was a certified legal intern at Community Legal Services, Family Advocacy Unit where she drafted an appellate brief and the Bucks County Public Defender, Juvenile Unit where she represented juveniles in delinquency proceedings.
A graduate of the Thomas R. Kline School of Law at Drexel University, Ms. Christiansen was honored with the Eve Biskind Klothen Law Student Pro Bono Distinction award as well as the Marshall Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project Outstanding Student Award. She also received the CALI Excellence Best Student Performance Award in Education, Inequality and the Law and Current Events in Law. Chelsey was the founding member of the Kline School of Law Family Law Society where she also served as president.
Chelsey attended Penn State University for undergraduate studies where she majored in Psychology and minored in Human Development and Family Studies. During her time at Penn State, she co-founded Boulevard, a community service program committed to serving the local and Penn State community, particularly through participation in THON. This work in turn benefited the Four Diamonds Fund in its efforts to funding a cure for pediatric cancer.
Chelsey is committed to contributing to her community, particularly for the betterment of children. She is dedicated to children’s rights and hopes during her legal career to positively impact children and families.
Chelsey is native to the Philadelphia region and when not practicing law she is rooting for the Philly teams. An avid Penn State Football and Philadelphia Eagles fan, fall can be a particularly busy (and stressful) time. She is also a fan of the Philadelphia Flyers, which she inherited from and shares with her father, a season ticket holder since 1984. Chelsey enjoys traveling and exploring National Parks.
