About Me

We represent both employers and employees, so we know how the other side thinks!


This perspective both makes us more effective advocates for you, and gives us immediate credibility with opposing counsel.  Too often in litigation, the opposing attorneys view each other as extremists or zealots, which makes resolution more difficult and makes litigation far more expensive, with less satisfactory results.


Our clients almost uniformly praise our representation - we are aggressive, competent and extremely strong advocates for our clients, and we get the results our clients want.
