Christine A. Renken - El Segundo, CA

100 N. Pacific Coast HighwaySuite 1350 El Segundo, CA 90245

Updated: 02/18/2024


Christine A. Renken is an attorney at Simmons Hanly Conroy in the Asbestos Department. She joined the firm in 2022, bringing more than 15 years of experience in asbestos litigation.

Based in the Los Angeles office, she focuses her practice on helping victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. Christine works with a team of attorneys who give clients a voice against individuals and corporations who knew or should have known about the hazards of asbestos.

Researching the Details
Christine utilizes her research and writing skills to work up pre-trial details for cases. These vital steps in the process include:

Researching defendants;
Preparing and serving discovery on defendants for information and documents;
Researching, evaluating and opposing defendants' initial filings (including demurrers and motions to quash/dismiss);
Researching, evaluating and opposing defendants' dispositive motions;
Researching and opposing defendants' trial motions;
Preparing plaintiffs' trial motions;
Appearing and arguing motions filed and opposed; and
Evaluating for potential writs/appeals and working on appellate briefs.
"No case can be successfully maintained against a defendant without developing the necessary facts," said Christine, "as well as winning the various motions - especially the dispositive motions - and appeals."

Total Client Care
While most of Christine's involvement happens behind the scenes, she is fully committed to client care, making every effort and expending all available resources to give clients the results they need and to which they're entitled.

"Total client care is crucial, not only to the case, but because it's what our clients deserve," she said. "They've done nothing wrong, but instead were hard workers only trying to do their jobs or live their lives."

Leveraging her in-depth knowledge of case law and successful track record against asbestos defendants, Christine obtains all necessary information and documents to secure the best results for clients. Her experience handling motions and appeals, as well as clerking at the Court of Appeal and an appellate law firm, uniquely qualify her to work on law and motion and appeals.

Representative Experience
Through meticulous research and legal knowledge, Christine has successfully defeated hundreds of motions by corporations seeking to stop trials from happening and to keep individuals suffering from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases from achieving justice.

She also has won hundreds of motions for preference and motions to compel discovery, so that trials could continue. Many of these wins resulted in large settlements for her clients.

Christine also was instrumental in overturning a judgment against a client after a grant of summary judgment in a published court of appeal opinion.

Background and Education
Christine received a B.A. in Sociology and Political Science from the University of Southern California in 2001. She received her J.D. from Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, in 2004. While there, she was the research editor for the Law Review: International & Comparative Law Review and was awarded High Honors in Trial Advocacy.

Christine serves on the board of her daughter's Parent Teacher Association and is active in the Riverside County Bar Association. She volunteers annually as an attorney scorer at the Riverside High Schools' Annual Mock Trial Competition.
