About Me

Our law firm only represents employees in employment matters.  We have been doing this since 1999.  We have handled all kinds of employment cases against the largest companies in the Country.  Many of our cases have been featured in the news media.   We have seen it all and we can help you solve your problem. 


We have flexible billing arrangments so you can afford to have a top law firm help you.  We prefer to take cases on a contingent fee basis so that our interests are aligned  and no money is paid until we get results.


We have offices in New York City and San Francisco.
