Christy Malatesta focuses her practice in General Litigation and Transportation.  When asked about her approach to a new matter, Christy says, “Communication with clients upon receipt of any new matter is the key component to successfully addressing not only that client’s needs, but also those issues which often arise throughout the course of representation.  I strive to provide timely communication on matters of importance to our clients while still maintaining a balanced approach to the procedural posture of each matter I handle.”
