After my first year in law school, I clerked for an employment lawyer and worked intensively on a pregnancy discrimination case for a terminated factory worker. That was more than 20 years ago and ever since I have focused my practice on representing workers from executives to rank and file in claims against their employers.
I have a limited case load to make sure each case gets the attention it deserves and I am highly specialized, so you can be sure you have the right lawyer to take on your civil employment dispute for settlement or trial. I try to make a real and positive difference for each client by honest advice and throwing myself vigorously on your side.
My paternal grandfather was a Teamster who worked for Sheedy Drayage and raised his family in Daly City, California. My maternal grandfather was a Professor of Maritime Law in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I was born in Brussels, Belgium because my father was a diplomat posted at the U.S. Embassy in Belgium. As a result, we moved every three years or so and I lived in Washington D.C., Brasilia, Montreal, Rio de Janeiro, and New England as well as visiting family in Argentina and Mexico.
At 18, I returned to the Bay Area to attend the University of California, Berkeley as a fourth generation California resident and second generation Cal grad.
When not at work or in court, I spend most of my free time with my family. I also enjoy bicycling, politics, restaurants and travel (but only for vacation).
