I represent employees who have lost their jobs for unlawful reasons or were forced to quit because of harassment or unsafe working conditions. My practice area is employment law, including all types of wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment, retaliation, and wage and hour violations.
I began my career as a field chemist, working for a small hazardous waste disposal consulting firm in the San Francisco Bay Area. As I traveled all over California overseeing the packaging and shipment of hazardous waste, I witnessed many workers exposed daily to chemicals and other hazards with little to no controls. This inspired me to focus my career on worker safety and health, and work to protect everyone's right to a safe workplace.
Over time, I served as a lay or expert witness in cases involving employee or public exposure to hazardous chemicals, asbestos, or mold. In every case, I remarked how helpful it could be if the attorneys understood more about the core concepts of industrial safety and hygiene. I thought California workers might benefit from an attorney who understands the rules of safety and health on a practitioner level. So I set out to become that professional.
Later, as my legal career gained momentum, I decided that protecting workers from harm goes far beyond worker safety and health. It also involves protecting people from workplace discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wage theft, and labor code violations. And it involves taking action whenever a fired employee could potentially have been the victim of a workplace injury, or suffered an illness or disability based on chemical exposure or other hazards in the workplace.
And that's where I found my true calling – which is to protect the legal rights of employees and to fight for compensation when those rights are violated.
