About Me

My journey is unique.   I  started my labor and employment law practice in 1992, fresh out of law school.  Truly did I climb a steep learning curve those early years. On my way, I was blessed to have some of the finest California attorneys mentor me and co-counsel with me on high impact cases. 


 


Success and accolades soon followed.  In 2004, at the age of 40, I was one of the youngest attorneys to be selected for inclusion as a Southern California SuperLawyer for Employment Litigation. 


 


Today, after 20 years of litigation, dozens of trials, and tens of millions of dollars recovered for thousands of employees, my formula for success remains the same. I myself talk with all new callers seeking answers to labor and employment law questions and experienced legal counsel.  I do not charge for the consultation, nor do I delegate this important service to any law clerk, paralegal, or secretary.  


 


If your case qualifies, expect no limits to what I will legally and ethically do to fix and repair the harm to you.  I will offer same-day service. I will personally give you and your legal issue the attention you deserve. I will co-counsel with some of the finest labor and employment attorneys in California.  No case is too big or too small.


 


Thus, you always have me as your personal lawyer and a "virtual law firm" at your service, 24/7.
