Our personal injury practice is led by firm owner Attorney Christopher Marzzacco, who has been listed in “The Best Lawyers in America” every year since 2017 and named in “Super Lawyers” every year since 2017.

Attorneys Jordan Marzzacco and Rebecca Bailey, both recognized by their peers for excellence in personal injury law by being selected as a “Super Lawyer Rising Stars” since 2020, also provide our injured clients with strong, skilled advocacy. Both Jordan and Rebecca handle motor vehicle, premises liability or slip/trip and fall and other serious injury cases. Rebecca is also an experienced workers’ compensation litigator.

Historically, our founding attorney, Katherine L. Niven, was a former workers’ compensation law judge who presided over thousands of hearings. As a result, she knew what judges look for when they rule on a case in a hearing or an appeal. When she practiced with the firm, Ms. Niven was a strong advocate for injured workers.
Before she became a judge, she served as chief counsel for the Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. In this position, she enforced workers’ compensation laws and brought criminal actions against companies that failed to carry workers’ compensation insurance.
Our current Workers’ Compensation Division is overseen by Attorneys Adam Crosier and Jesse Rhodeside. Adam and Jesse have both been named Certified Worker’s Compensation Specialist by the Pennsylvania Bar Association Section of Workers’ Compensation Law.
Attorney Shreya Tripathi Bhardwaj oversees our Social Security Disability Department. Shreya has represented thousands of individuals seeking Social Security Disability benefits in her career. Shreya previously worked with national law firms, helping disabled clients across the country. Since 2015, Shreya worked for Marzzacco Niven and Associates, as “of-counsel,” handling federal District Court Appeals. Shreya now oversees every aspect of our Social Security Department, and concentrates her practice exclusively on social security matters—representing clients from initial application through appeals and hearings before administrative law judges, and representing our clients on appeal in federal court in the Middle and Eastern Districts of Pennsylvania.
Attorney J. Lynette Carter came to the firm in 2022 as an associate in the Social Security Disability Department. Prior to law school, Lynette worked for over six years at the Pennsylvania Capitol Building as a Research Analyst for the PA House of Representatives and as a Budget Analyst for the PA State Senate.
