About Me 

 

What is your opinion regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I work WITH my client, and the more they know the more they can assist in their cases.

Are you willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I often work with clients who are capable of and do prepare their own documents. I prefer, in

many cases, to assist the client in making the initial presentation and/or demand.

Are you willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

An important part of my work with many clients is the development of a strategic plan in which

we sketch out what role is better suited for the client on his or her own, and what is better

suited for my direct intervention.

Why did you decide to be a lawyer?

I considered the legal profession the best way to make a difference in the day to day lives of

ordinary people.

What work experience and education helps you be a better lawyer?

I grew up in a working class small town, the son of a union mill worker with a 6th grade

education. I was able to pay my way through college and law school by the GI bill and part

and full-time jobs. With 28 years of experience representing individuals and companies in

employment related matters, I understand and appreciate the intricacies and interests of the

opposing parties in an employment dispute.

Why did you decide on your primary area of practice?

As I grew up in a working class town of working class parents, I knew about and identified with

working men and women. The practice of employment law gave me the opportunity to

advocate on behalf of the worker and to encourage employers to comply with the law

protecting employees.

What do you like best about your career?

I enjoy working with individuals rather than impersonal corporations. I enjoy the strategic

challenge of developing a plan to maximize a client's potential recovery for the violation of his or her rights.

Tell us about your law firm.

The firm is committed to providing the best employment law representation possible. All four

lawyers work exclusively (with very minor exceptions) in employment law representing

individuals with claims against employers or with and on behalf of individuals in strategic

planning regarding their employment relationships. With a combined experience exceeding 60 years, our four lawyers provide an unparalleled expertise in employment counseling and

employment claims litigation.

What are your strengths and style?

I listen to my clients and provide collaborative guidance and support. I attempt to discern each

client's goals and work toward achieving those goals. I am accessible and attempt to be

available to respond in a timely manner.

I am a professional, and I am good at what I do. I will not take unreasonable or unfounded

positions. I am tough with opposing counsel, but extend professional courtesies when

appropriate. I have been described as a bulldog; I pursue every angle and every fair

advantage on behalf of my clients.

Personal Interests.

I enjoy history, progressive politics, and children's issues.
