Christie Pazdzierski represents management in employment and labor law matters. Christie gained significant employment litigation experience as a deputy attorney general for the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office. She represented state agencies and management-level employees in employment litigation matters involving claims brought under Title VII, the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Conscientious Employee Protection Act, the Equal Pay Act, as well as employment-related torts, contracts, and civil rights claims. Christie’s employment litigation experience includes managing cases from inception to resolution, up to and including trial and appellate proceedings. In trial practice, Christie served as second-chair in a CEPA matter, which resulted in a directed verdict in favor of her client. In her appellate practice, she assisted with a brief that resulted in the New Jersey Appellate Division overturning a multimillion dollar jury verdict that was awarded to a former employee of a state prison in a whistleblower lawsuit.
Prior to joining Littler, Christie served as a law clerk to Judge Kevin McNulty, U.S.D.J., for the District of New Jersey, where she assisted with complex civil matters, including employment litigation cases. Immediately after law school, Christie served as a law clerk for Associate Supreme Court Justice Anne Patterson of the New Jersey Supreme Court.
