Christina M. Hassler

Christina M. Hassler: Attorney with Goldberg Segalla LLP


Christina Hassler focuses her practice on workers’ compensation, drawing on experience earned protecting the interests of insurers in private practice and as senior staff attorney at one of the nation’s largest property casualty insurers.

Tina’s effectiveness at serving her clients and aiding her colleagues is built on an ability to look at the “big picture” - including changing laws, regulations, and case law, as well as a firm’s or company’s overall strategies and long-term goals - while maintaining a mastery over the facts and details of the individual cases she handles. In her nearly 20-year career Tina has managed a consistently high volume of workers’ compensation matters - often up to 45 cases in a month. Tina has handled thousands of medical depositions and trial hearings involving lay witness litigation, no-fault litigation depositions, motion hearings on issues of subrogation, small claims court matters, and unemployment hearings. An exceptional negotiator and litigation manager, she has also presented and summarized cases to judges, filed memoranda of law, and drafted appeals in New York State Workers’ Compensation Court.

Tina brings to her clients at Goldberg Segalla a special insight and understanding from over six years as senior staff attorney to a major national insurer, implementing and managing the workers’ compensation practice there. In that role Tina collaborated with offices throughout the country to ensure consistent practice standards and procedures; ensured proper Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and Freedom of Information Law request compliance; and cross-trained litigation, workers’ compensation, and subrogation departments on the interplay of legal issues in insurance coverage. A frequent speaker who has presented on New York State Workers’ Compensation Law and related issues before industry leaders, she has also trained management and employees on effective negotiation of settlements, updated case law, and file strategies.

Tina carries that in-house counsel point-of-view with her into private practice, which reinforces trust as a priority of the attorney-client relationship. She remains committed to evaluating the programs she has designed and managed and the services she provides against standard metrics and - above all else - client expectations.
