Christina excels in the courtroom, where she is passionate about connecting complex scientific and legal issues to advocate for her clients. She has served on court-appointed leadership committees in multidistrict litigation for plaintiffs involving harm from defective drugs and devices, and for the U.S. government involving alleged harm from toxic substances in the environment and the workplace. Ms. Natale holds a J.D. from the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law.
Bailey Glasser partner D. Todd Mathews, one of the nation’s top trial attorneys, added: “Christina Hutchins and Christina Natale have joined a firm that’s renowned for its litigation experience, superb talent, and ability to provide the very best in resources in representing clients,” Mathews said. “I’m excited to work alongside them in fighting for people who need it most.”
