I take that responsibility incredibly seriously. With over four decades of legal experience, I have a detailed knowledge of all aspects of employment law.

Dedicated Legal Representation of Employee Rights

When You Need It Most

Well-Researched Advice

When I represent you, I will perform an in-depth investigation of your unique case. By thoroughly analyzing your situation, I will be better able to form a comprehensive defense specific to your needs. I'll also meet with you throughout the legal process in order to answer any questions or concerns you may have along the way. The more information I am able to collect about, for example, your sexual harassment, Family & Medical Leave Act, or whistle blower case, the better representation I'll be able to provide you.

Aggressive Litigation

I don't like bullies, whether they take the form of corporations, managers, or other workplace superiors. When I'm defending you and your case in the courtroom, I'm not easily intimidated by opposing counsel. My decades of legal experience have equipped me to tackle even the most difficult employment law cases, like those involving discrimination or harassment. My top concern is making sure your rights are fully protected, and I'm prepared to assert them on your behalf until we reach a positive outcome for your case.
