Caroline J. Berdzik Quoted in "Making Centers Lawsuit-Proof," Shopping Centers Today April 2014
Caroline J. Berdzik, chair of Goldberg Segalla’s Health Care Practice Group and co-chair of its Labor and Employment Practice Group, was interviewed by Shopping Centers Today for an article discussing the uptick in disability access legal actions being filed against shopping centers under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Caroline has defended numerous shopping center owners in cases alleging ADA noncompliance.
