About me

I have been practicing labor and employment law for sixteen years. 


I have handled all manner of employment cases: discrimination, harassment, whiste-blower, wage and hour, family leave, disability accommodation, etc. I have obtained millions in settlements and verdicts on behalf of my individual clients and I regularly try cases in court.   


In addition, I regularly counsel employers on how to comply with the increasingly complicated requirements of federal and state employment laws.
