About me

I am the principal attorney of the Mahadev Law Group, with over ten years of experience working with Human Resources and Employment Law issues. Clients have included small and midsized businesses and municipalities in Wisconsin. I have also taught at the University of Wisconsin Law School for a course, Employment Law Counseling & Preventive HR.


Currently, I serve as a Board Member of the American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin and as Chair of the Communications Committee at the State Bar of Wisconsin. In law school I worked at two major law firms in Milwaukee, WI and San Francisco, CA and interned with the Honorable Gerald Nichol at the Dane County Circuit Court.


Prior to law practice, I worked in the Human Resources function in California and in New York.
