About me

I focus my practice on representing management in employment matters and HIPAA compliance.  I advise companies regarding the complexity of employment laws and defend employment lawsuits in state and federal court.  I frequently talk to clients about wage and hour concerns, employee privacy, personnel manuals, and noncompetition agreements.
