With a passion for workplace justice, Christina Giorgio has been fighting and winning for her clients in New York, California and Illinois for nearly two decades. As the managing attorney of Derek Smith Law Group’s Manhattan office, Christina focuses her practice on representing employees in workplace discrimination disputes.

Through this work, she won landmark litigation securing the rights of over one million New York City public school students to be free from toxic light fixtures in their schools. Christina has also been at the forefront of challenging cities’ illegal and inhumane treatment of their residents experiencing homelessness through section 1983 class action litigation. As a skilled community development attorney, Christina has represented numerous coalitions in community benefits campaigns and contract negotiations, winning unprecedented housing, employment, wage and services commitments from developers.
