I am a seasoned labor and employment attorney with a demonstrated record of success in the cost-effective resolution of labor and employment matters through excellent communication, negotiation and interpersonal skills and knowledge. I possess more than thirty years of responsible experience in all facets of public and private sector labor relations, employment law and human resource management. I am an arbitrator with the National Association of Securities Dealers and an employment and commercial arbitrator with the American Dispute Resolution Center, Inc. I am also a mediator with the CT Department of Education, responsible for mediating municipal administrator and teacher collective bargaining contracts. I am a Executive Committee member of the CT Bar Association's Labor and Employment Law Section and served as Chair of the section.
My only deficiency is golf: I have a passion for the game that is not returned. Maybe the new driver will help.
