About me

I'm a partner with JML Law.  I primarily practice employment law with a very small percentage of personal injury cases.

I represent both private and public sector employees, as well as high level executives, minimum wage workers , and everyone in between.  I have fought for employees against the largest corporations and have obtained millions of dollars in settlements each year for my clients.  My peers have recognized my work and dedication to the rights of employees by selecting me as a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyer magazine every year since 2009, a honor based on the review of other lawyers and available to only 2.5% of eligible attorneys in California.

I decided to dedicate my legal career to representing employees before law school while working in the construction industry.   Many of my friends and co-workers, including even in union environments, were not provided with the same opportunities because of either their immigration status, race, and gender.  I now represents individuals in the areas of wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, wage and hour, and whistleblowing.

In addition to our Woodland Hills office, we have an office in Orange County and in San Francisco.  

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, coaching my oldest daughter’s soccer team, and counting down the days until my youngest daughter can play soccer as well.
