About Me

I have been practicing law for more than 25 years. I provide advice and counsel regarding a full range of employment matters. My litigation practice includes the prosecution and defense of civil litigation matters concentrating in employment law which involves aggressive and effective representation of employees and executives in matters involving discrimination, compensation and wrongful termination actions. I prosecute and defend employment actions on behalf of employees and management in state and federal actions and in state and federal administrative agencies which include actions under Title VII (race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual harassment and retaliation), Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, Pregnancy Discrimination Act, Equal Pay Act, Family Medical Leave Act, Illinois Human Rights Act, the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act and actions involving retaliatory discharge, employment torts and contract actions. My practice is actively involved in preparing and advising employees and management regarding employment agreements including separation agreements, non-compete, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements.


I provide consulting services as well as generalized and specialized training to my clients upon request. I apply substantive knowledge of the law and our litigation experience with a view toward zealous representation and cost-effective resolution of cases.
