Attorney Profile

My passion is representing employees in claims against their employers.  My focus is on providing top-level representation for each of my clients.

My cases include harassment and discrimination claims based on, race, gender, and disability.  I have extensively represented employees for violations of state required minimum working conditions in the Labor Code such as overtime pay and meal and rest break rights. 

My clients have claims based on their leave rights in the Family Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”), the California Family Rights Act (“CFRA”) and the Pregnancy Disability Leave Law (“PDLL”).

Another practice area of my firm is unpaid wages.  This includes representing sales people on unpaid commission cases.  In those cases, typically the employer’s compensation plan requires the employee to remain employed to receive sales commissions that they earned. 

For over 15 years, I have litigated and tried employment related class action cases for overtime pay, nonpayment of wages, meal and rest breaks, and various Labor Code penalties. 

My experience includes appearing before the Labor Commissioner, arbitration, trials and appeals in both state and federal court. 

My clients are all over state and they range from high paid sales executives to minimum wage employees.  Many of my commission cases are based in sales people who work for software companies in the Silicon Valley. 

My principal office is in Westlake Village, California and I have a satellite office in Los Angeles California.
