Tressi Cordaro Named Co-Leader of Jackson Lewis' Workplace Safety and Health Practice Group

WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 28, 2017) Jackson Lewis P.C., one of the country’s preeminent workplace law firms, is pleased to announce Washington D.C. Region Principal Tressi Cordaro has been named Co-Leader of Jackson Lewis’ Workplace Safety and Health Practice Group, alongside Carla Gunnin who was named Co-Leader in 2016.  Ms. Cordaro succeeds Bradford Hammock, who chose to step down from the role to focus on his growing practice and responsibilities as D.C. Region Office Managing Principal. 

“Tressi has contributed a great deal of enthusiasm, professionalism and commitment to our Workplace Safety and Health Practice Group since joining our firm four years ago,” said Firm Chairman Vincent A. Cino. “We thank Brad for everything he has done to make Jackson Lewis a true leader in the Workplace Safety arena and look forward to seeing how the group will continue to thrive under Tressi’s and Carla’s leadership.”

Ms. Cordaro advises and represents employers on occupational safety and health matters before federal and state OSHA enforcement agencies. She has advised employers faced with willful and serious citations as the result of catastrophic events and fatalities, including citations involving multi-million dollar penalties.

Ms. Cordaro’s unique experience with government agencies involved in OSHA enforcement enables her to provide employers with especially insightful guidance as to how regulators view OSHA compliance obligations, and evaluate contested cases.

Ms. Cordaro served as the Presidentially-appointed Legal Counsel and Special Advisor to the past Chairman and Commissioner Horace A. Thompson, III at the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Review Commission (OSHRC) in Washington, DC, the agency that adjudicates contested federal OSHA citations. As the Commissioner’s chief counsel, Ms. Cordaro analyzed all cases presented to the OSHRC and advocated the Commissioner’s position during decisional meetings.

In addition, Ms. Cordaro worked at the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration developing OSHA standards, regulations and enforcement and compliance policies, with emphasis on the construction industry. She has in-depth experience on technical issues including, in particular, issues related to cranes and derricks in construction.
