Attorney Profile

Now more than ever, it’s hard for an Employee who has been wronged to get justice without help. We only represent Employees, not companies that violate employment laws. My goal as a lawyer is to hold people and companies accountable for the harm they cause. 

In over 25 years of practicing law, I’ve represented many clients in employment law, overtime claims, personal injury, and other types of cases.  I, with my team of attorneys, have obtained millions of dollars in recoveries and won cases at trial in state and federal courts.  Most importantly, we have helped our clients put their lives back together after they were damaged by the actions of others.

We help Employees with problems including:

  • Wrongful Termination
  • Severance Package Review and Negotiation
  • Age Discrimination
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Workplace discrimination
  • Unpaid Overtime
  • Employer retaliation
  • Non-Compete Agreements
  • Whistleblower claims
  • Personal injury

One of the best things about being a lawyer is that I am regularly inspired by my clients – often those who have been treated the worst, put at the deepest financial risk, or suffered the worst injuries are the ones who have a “can do” attitude and courage that are impressive. Their positivity and optimism remind me to take on life’s challenges with that same perspective.
