About Thomas

Learn Thomas’s areas of practice.

I head the firm’s Litigation and Employment Practice. I focuses my practice primarily on employment law, where I represents employers in litigations over employment terminations; restrictive covenants, trade secrets, and other employee mobility issues; employment discrimination and sexual harassment matters; employment contract disputes; and defamation and privacy related matters.  I also serves employers in a wide variety of non-litigation matters, including contract negotiation, preparation of policies and procedures, and hiring and termination.  These services help employers to avoid and resolve disputes without resorting to the courtroom.

In addition to employment law matters, I also handles complex litigation and dispute resolution in the areas of land use and zoning law, education law, and government regulation.
