About me

I represent only Workers - never Employers!


 


I have been fighting for workers’ rights for over 20 years.  I have worked as a union organizer, and employee advocate and an attorney.  I know how workers are treated in this country and I know that it is no simple task to secure basic rights.   Employees have always had to fight for their rights for fair treatment.


 


I formerly worked as a staff attorney at the Massachusetts Unemployment appeals board (the Board of Review).  I reviewed hundreds of cases and know many of the ins and outs and technicalities that make a difference between winning and losing an Unemployment Appeal.
