The Bachelorette’s Riley Christian announced he’s starting his own law practice from his living room.
Riley uploaded several photos to his Instagram today in celebration of the reveal. He posed for the shots in his new office setup, with his laptop, a gavel, and several degrees. He also included a bible and a pad of paper, as well as a baseball in his second shot.
The first picture featured a smiling Riley, while the second showed him seemingly hard at work.
“I always wanted to be able to do some good in the world,” Riley captioned the photo. “Ya know, help some people that really need it. I never thought I’d put it together from my living room, but here I am. Christian Law practice coming soon. Wish us luck. We’re going to need it.”
Riley Christian first rose to fame on Season 16 of The Bachelorette and then cemented his place as a fan favorite on Season 7 of Bachelor in Paradise.
Riley also made history as part of the franchise’s first black couple when he left paradise engaged to The Bachelor’s Maurissa Gunn.
He got his start in law by attending the Syracuse University College of Law in New York City. He also has previously worked as an attorney practicing medical malpractice.
