About me

Since 2007 I have focused almost exclusively on representing employee rights in the workplace.I have experience prosecuting wage and hour class actions in state and federal courts. I have been appointed class counsel in 50 actions since 2006 recovering unpaid wages, overtime pay, missed breaks and other penalties on behalf of cheated employees. We have recovered over $50 million in wages and penalties on behalf of employees.

I also have expertise in protecting employee civil rights in the workplace. My clients are victims of wage theft (yes, indentured servitude and modern day slavery still exist in America), harassment, discrimination and retaliation. Employees who have the courage to stand up for their rights in the workplace are often harassed, ostracized and retaliated against. I give them a voice. I protect their rights.

Employees have the right to timely receive all earned wages--including proper overtime.
Employees have the right to take meal and rest breaks in accordance with the law.
Employees have the right to paystubs they can actually understand.
Employees have the right to be free from discrimination, harassment and retaliation because of:

Marital Status
Medical Condition (cancer and genetic characteristics)

Employees have the right to a safe working environment.
Employees have the right to be free from violence in the workplace.
Employees have the right to complain about perceived violations in their workplace without fear of reprisal.
