About Me

After 17 years practicing in both the public and private sectors in Vermont, I have opened my own law practice with a primary focus on employment and labor law.  My goals are simple:  to provide exceptional legal services to individuals and organizations with unsurpassed responsiveness and personal attention.  Each client will have my personal dedication and focus, something too often lost in larger firms.  Developing relationships with clients allows me to become a passionate advocate.  A thorough knowledge of my client's background or organizational structure and goals positions me well to advise a client and guide clients through litigation.  As a trial lawyer with extensive jury and bench trial experience, a client can be assured that I can take a case from start through to trial.  I strive to inspire complete confidence and peace of mind - a knowledgeable partner and ally in guiding my clients through the complexities of labor and employment related legal matters.
