I was born and raised in Leominster, Massachusetts. Leominster is diverse working class city of about 45,000 people in North Central Massachusetts 40 miles west of Boston. I always wanted to be a lawyer though I have no relatives in the profession. My father was a construction worker for over 35 years and my mother still works as a secretary. I was raised with the belief to fight for the little guy and good causes.
When I went to law school, I promised my parents that I would never work for large corporations but fight for people like us. I got interested in employment litigation my first year in law school when my dad was working in a ditch that did not comply with OSHA trenching standards and it collapsed on him. As a result of the accident, my dad has never worked again and has gone through multiple surgeries to repair damage to his knee. To see my parents struggle with only one income and see how much work meant to my dad, I realized my calling was to help people protect their employment rights. As a result of the accident, I clerked for the United States Department of Labor and began to immerse myself in learning laws that protect employees.
Since my graduation from law school, I have worked hard to keep true to my commitment in helping people like my mother and father protect their rights at the workplace. My continued commitment has brought many successes.
Should you need help, please feel free to call is. We know how much your job means to you.
