Since the year 2000, Christa Groshek has litigated cases before judges and juries in Minnesota and nationally. Christa often defends charges of criminal sexual conduct, child pornography possession / dissemination and production, child abuse and murder. Christa also regularly collaborates and consults with experts in child abuse cases - especially where allegations of "Shaken Baby Syndrome" or "Abusive Head Trauma" are brought. She also regularly works with experts in criminal sexual conduct cases who can opine about memory evidence and the proper collection of it, including the particulars of the forensic interviewing protocol.

In 2018, Christa developed a new way to practice by devoting three attorneys to every case. The "Groshek Method" of thoroughly investigating and rigorously defending cases is enjoyed by the firm's criminal, child protection, maltreatment, licensing, appeals and family clients.
