About me

I am a California attorney practicing exclusively in the employment benefits (ERISA) and employment law area. My goal is to help employers use the powerful tool of tax-qualified and other benefits to attract and retain quality employees.  My client base includes for-profit and non-profit organizations ranging in size from a handful of employees, to several thousand.   I also have a number of clients who are benefit brokers and advisors, and whom I help navigate legal compliance issues including federal health care reform and HIPAA privacy, security and breach disclosure issues.
