McAfee & Taft, the state’s largest law firm, has further expanded its Litigation Group with the addition of Allison B. Christian. Prior to joining the firm, she served as a law clerk to the Honorable Timothy D. DeGiusti, chief judge of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma.

Christian earned her undergraduate degree in animal science, with a minor in agricultural economics and agribusiness, from Oklahoma State University in 2017. She went on to graduate with honors from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in 2020, where she served as executive editor of American Indian Law Review, competed on the National Appellate Advocacy Team and Chicago Bar Moot Court Team, was a member of the Luther Bohanon American Inn of Court and Phi Delta Phi legal fraternity, and was named to the Order of the Coif, Order of the Barristers, and National Order of the Scribes.
