Christine E. Newbry

Christine E. Newbry

Sole Practitioner
Port Orchard, Washington

Born and raised in Bothell, WA, Christine completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Washington. She received her J.D. cum laude from Seattle University in 2005 and began working as a deputy prosecuting attorney in Lewis County, WA, in 2006. She joined a small general practice firm in Centralia, WA in 2008, where she practiced mainly criminal defense, handling hundreds of misdemeanor and felony cases in multiple counties. During that time Christine was also the defense attorney for Lewis County juvenile drug court as well as family drug court, representing parents involved with CPS. In 2014, after meeting her future husband, Christine moved to Bremerton, WA. She opened her own firm in Port Orchard in August 2014, and hired Laura Baier in May 2016. Christine currently practices primarily family law and criminal defense, as well as representing parents involved in dependencies. Christine spends most of her weekends and downtime at dog parks with her husband and their four rescue dogs, Boston, Cody, Cooper and Carlos. (If you come to the office there's a good chance you'll be greeted by Carlos.) Christine serves on the Board of Directors of the Kitsap Humane Society and is a member of the South Kitsap Rotary.
