About me

 I offer extensive experience and advantage of handling employment discrimination cases and other employment issues for both employees and small employers with up to 100 employees.  I have defended employers and represented employees in discrimination matters, including race discrimination, age discrimination, sexual discrimination, disability discrimination and retaliation.  I have assisted employees and employers in negotiating, drafting and reviewing employment agreement,s including non-compete agreements, nondisclosure agreements, employment termination agreements, severance agreements, and breach of employment contracts.  


At the beginning of your case, I will help you with an economic assessment of the case so that you can best decide whether to litigate or negotiate the matter.  In the end, you will make all decisions about your employment law case.  I make sure those are informed decisions.
