About me

As a management side employment attorney, I represent mostly small to mid-sized businesses.  My goal is to use proactive measures, such as employee handbooks, policies, training and human resources "best practices" to keep my clients compliant with the law and avoid employment claims.  If and when claims do arise, I represent my clients in administrative agencies (unemployment, workers' comp, EEOC, etc.) as well as litigate matters in state and federal courts.


I am a Certified Specialist in Labor & Employment Law, and a partner with Petronzio Schneier Co., LPA.  Together with my business law colleagues we offer businesses comprehensive legal services for all their business needs.
