For two decades, Christina Giorgio has been fighting and winning for her clients in New York, California and Illinois. With a passion for social and economic justice, she focuses her practice on representing victims of employment discrimination, sexual harassment, and wage theft. Christina has extensive experience litigating employment discrimination and sexual harassment cases against private employers and the municipalities, obtaining some of the largest sexual harassment settlements paid out by the City of New York.

Prior to opening her own office, Christina was a staff attorney with New York Lawyers for the Public Interest and Public Counsel in Los Angeles where she represented clients in complex civil rights and land use matters. She won landmark litigation, including securing the rights of more than one million New York City public school students to be free from toxic light fixtures in over 2000 public schools. She has been at the forefront of challenging cities’ illegal and inhumane treatment of their residents experiencing homelessness through section 1983 litigation. Christina started her legal career as a union-side labor lawyer in Chicago and has remained committed to fighting for workers’ rights to be free from workplace discrimination and unlawful wage and hour practices.

Christina was raised in California and has chosen Brooklyn, New York as her home. She received her B.A. from University of California at Berkeley and her J.D. from Loyola University School of Law, Chicago. Christina is a member of the California, Illinois and New York bars and is licensed to practice in their state and federal courts. When not representing clients or advocating for social justice, you will find Christina hiking the peaks of Yosemite, surfing the Rockaways and sailing a sunfish in Jamaica Bay.

JEDI MASTER -SUPREME- POWER ATTORNEY
Christina Giorgio is the real deal. She is the finest, honest, dedicated, hardworking, triumphant attorney and person I've ever come across in some time. She elegantly guided me through my case with ease. I felt very supported and confident by her unwavering dedication to me. I am an older woman who didn't understand the law very well. Christina Giorgio alleviated my anxiety and concerns. She never backed down and protected me to the last final details. I'm truly grateful for her dedicated expertise. I couldn't have won without Christina Giorgio. Christina Giorgio is a Jedi Master in her field!

The Advocate You Need
Christina Georgio is a gifted and extraordinary attorney. When I desperately needed reliable legal representation, she swept in like a superhero. From our initial consultation through the final settlement, she went above and beyond to advocate for me, always prioritizing my best interests with expertise and empathy. Her proactive approach kept me continuously updated and our conversations were not only productive and enlightening, but truly enjoyable. Christina’s tenacity, expertise, and compassion put me at ease during what has arguably been the worst time of my life. The results speak for themselves; Christina was able to secure an outstanding settlement through her masterful negotiation skills, legal acumen and perseverance. I feel very fortunate to have been the beneficiary of Ms. Georgio’s excellent representation.

Relief from a frustrating situation
Christina likes to take her time to know her clients. Very thorough and makes sure you understand everything you’re getting into. She took a scary and complicated situation and had fun in the process. She is a true professional and I would recommend her to anyone who needs an attorney that knows the system well.

Exceptional attorney - hire her asap!
I found Christina to be a brilliant, experienced and compassionate attorney who cares deeply about her clients and justice. She took considerable time to review my case details thoroughly and spoke with me at length, asking excellent clarifying questions along the way. I was blown away by her laser focus and knowledge of the law. I feel incredibly lucky to have benefitted from her advice - she is an extraordinary person and I can't recommend her highly enough.

Excellent lawyer and tenacious fighter
Christina Giorgio represented me and others in the South Bronx in our fight to stop yet another polluting industry coming into our neighborhood and worsening our already catastrophic asthma levels, among other environmental and health harms. She did an amazing job. Christina is a true fighter for social justice and I was blown away watching her present us in court, before the press and in the community.

OUTSTANDING!
Christina Giorgio is a true champion for women's rights.  I'm so grateful to have had her as my attorney to enforce my right to breastfeed my baby while waiting in the emergency room at Lincoln Hospital.  Christina took my case when other attorneys were not interested. She fought hard for me and achieved a fantastic outcome.  She was so supportive and always available to me. Christina deeply cares about her clients and loves her works.  If I could give her 10 stars, I would.  A huge thank you, Christina!
