About Me

My firm limits it areas of practice to Employment Law and Injury Law. By limiting our practice, we feel we are able to provide our clients with a superior level of service.

Employment Law. We represent employees and management. That means we have the ability to see how a case is perceived from both sides of the table and it allows us to give advice that is tailored to the client's needs.  When an employment issue arises you need a seasoned professional in your corner who can walk you through the complexities of an employment law case. Some, but not all, of the areas we work with our clients are:

  • Sexual Harassment Claims

  • Discrimination Claims 

  • Retaliation and Wrongful Termination Matters

  • Wage and Hour Matters

  • Employment Contracts

  • Professional License Defense

  • Non-Competition Agreements/Trade Secrets

  • Executive Compensation

  • Severance Packages

  • Employment Handbooks

  • Workplace Training

  • Litigation, Mediation, and Settlements

  • EEOC/Human Rights Commission matters

  • Employee Theft and Embezzlement

We also maintain a Blog for our employment law clients to keep them up to date on changes in the law.  I invite you to visit our blog: 

 Severe and Catastrophic Injury Law. In this part of the firm's practice, I work with people to resolve, and if necessary, prosecute:

  • Wrongful Death Claims

  • Severe and Catastrophic Injuries

  • Accidents involving Cars, Trucks, and Motorcyles

  • Sexual Abuse/Sexual Assault Claims
