About Me

My commitment is to avidly represent my clients in a compassionate and meaningful manner. I am dedicated to helping employees with their jobs, including helping employees get paid correctly. For the past nine years, I have successfully represented employees across the nation on wage issues against many of the largest employers in the country. I am dedicated to helping employees recover wages that are owed by employers. In addition to wage related issues, I also represent employees with other employment claims including wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination and severance agreements.
