I devote my entire practice to employment related issues, including litigation and transactional matters. I am a strong advocate for my clients, and I am dedicated to protecting, preserving and fighting for their rights, both at the negotiating table and in the courtroom. In recognition of these efforts, I am honored to have been selected for inclusion on the Texas Super Lawyers' "Rising Star" list in 2014 and 2015. I have also been named "Litigator of the Week" by Texas Lawyer, and have had trial verdicts selected as the "Featured Verdict" and "Top Texas Verdicts & Settlements," as reported by Verdict Search.
I have substantial experience representing employees, including executives, in a wide variety of employment-related matters. My experience includes litigation in state and federal courts and representing employees before state and federal administrative agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), and the Department of Labor (DOL). I have successfully first-chaired employment matters to verdict. Additionally, I have extensive experience handling class actions in Texas and throughout the country. My transactional experience includes reviewing, drafting and negotiating employment agreements and other workplace documents.
I represent clients in employment matters arising under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act, and other federal and state laws.
