I have over 20 years of experience at large regional, national, and international corporate law firms. I specialize in matters involving soil and groundwater contamination and also have extensive experience in occupational safety and health (OSHA) compliance. I have practiced and am licensed in three states: California, Illinois, and Indiana. My large firm background includes time at Parker, Milliken, Clark, O'Hara & Samuelian (Los Angeles, CA); Seyfarth, Shaw, Fairweather & Geraldson (Chicago, IL); Jones Day (Chicago, IL); and Ice Miller LLP (Indianapolis, IN). I spent five years practicing as a solo practitioner before returning to firm practice with Bamberger, Foreman, Oswald and Hahn. Over the course of my career, I have represented dozens of Fortune 500 companies as well as small companies, local governments, and small family businesses. I have represented employers in over a dozen workplace fatality cases, and have assisted clients with environmental, safety and health enforcement cases, compliance audits, and in numerous litigated cases.
In my practice, I have established relationships with key personnel at the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM), Indiana OSHA, U.S. EPA, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
My goal during my representations is to provide the client with competent but affordable legal advice, and to come up with creative ways to help my clients handle their environmental problems with as little financial impact to their bottom line as possible.
Licensed since 1989
