Christopher Cellante

Christopher Cellante represents the men and women of New York and their families against large insurance companies and major multi-billion-dollar corporations. These insurance companies hire lawyers to defend them at trial to protect their liability insurance policies. They place profits over the well-being and health of human beings. These insurance companies seek to deprive injured members of the community of the justice they deserve when their insureds act negligently. Mr. Cellante is a fierce representative on behalf of his clients, and he is an unwavering advocate of the American civil justice system. Although Mr. Cellante takes great pride in achieving justice for the men and women he represents, his success is, in part, offset by the sadness for those who are catastrophically injured or killed.

Prior to joining Hach & Rose LLP, Mr. Cellante defended the City of New York and its agencies in civil litigation as an Assistant Corporation Counsel with the New York City Law Department. He received the Division Chief Award for his advocacy and results achieved on behalf of the City. His knowledge and insight in municipal liability has proven to be an invaluable tool when representing those injured by the City’s negligence. Mr. Cellante also represented injured workers before the New York Workers’ Compensation Board in some of the highest exposure cases in New York, including spinal injury, brain injury, and quadriplegia. His efforts have fostered several multi-million-dollar civil settlements. Mr. Cellante’s aggressive litigation strategy has resulted in hundreds of favorable settlements for injured New Yorkers. Super Lawyers designated Mr. Cellante as a 2024 New York Metro Rising Star.

When not in the courtroom, Mr. Cellante enjoys spending time with his family and deep-sea fishing. He is an avid fan of the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.
