Christopher M. Seleski formerly worked in the Torts Department for New York City Transit Authority. His experience helps him look at all sides of a case and stay a step ahead of defendants. He believes strongly in an individual's right to the civic justice system and has been described as "bleeding heart plaintiff's lawyer." Formerly a professional musician, Chris has performed shows all across the country and plays guitar, piano, banjo, bass, harmonica, and sings. He is a captivating performer and talented songwriter, but also a tough negotiator. For years, Chris successfully fought for his clients while managing bands, bars and restaurants. He has also fought for children's rights for nearly 20 years volunteering at a domestic abuse shelter and teaching courses about the Constitution at a teen homeless shelter. Now Chris successfully fights for his injured clients as their attorney. He is a proud member of the American Association for Justice and The New York State Trial Lawyers Association. Chris is co-chair of the NYCLA Young Lawyers Section which seeks to facilitate the transition of law students, law graduates and newly admitted attorneys into the profession by providing a comfortable forum for the exchange of ideas. He is also a member of NYCLA's Law and Literature Committee and the Task Force on Records Destruction. Chris heads the Terrorism Division at Tolmage, Peskin, Harris & Falick, helping survivors, victims and their families receive justice for being injured or killed as a result of State Sponsored Terrorism. In 2021 Mr. Seleski was awarded at $47.2 million judgement for a victim of terrorism.
