About Me

My practice is almost entirely dedicated to plaintiffs-side employment law. I represent individuals and classes of individuals in lawsuits throughout California. The types of cases I handle include those for unpaid overtime, minimum wage, and/or commissions. I have been appointed class counsel in a California overtime lawsuit with one of the largest known per capita recoveries.
