About me

I am a highly experienced and skilled lawyer representing exclusively individuals (not businesses), primarily in the area of employment law. The areas in which I specialize include sexual harassment, whistleblower, executive negotiations, severance and non-compete agreents, wage and hour, FMLA and ADA, discrimination, and wage and hour.  My work ranges from advice and counseling to complex negotiations to trials and appeals.  I do this work because it is my passion.
