About Me

I am a civil rights & employment lawyer predominantly representing employees.  My practice focuses on discrimination, sexual harassment, and labor law issues, along with virtually all other aspects of employment law.  I may occasionally represent management for (1) creation/maintenance of anti-discrimination policies and compliance with relevant labor laws; (2) defense of employment law claims where I believe the suit has no merit; (3) employment contract negotiation and; (4) general consultation.  I also represent victims of discrimination in other contexts, such as in public accomodations.
