About Me

I have dedicated my career to representing employees and fighting to make them whole.  I only represent employees, never employers.  My firm prosecutes sexual harassment, race harassment, disability discrimination, whistleblower retaliation and wrongful termination cases.  We work hard to obtain evidence and witnesses to help clients win.  If the employer is not willing to be reasonable and the case is viable, we will not hesitate to go to trial.
