I handle a wide array of litigation matters in both federal and state courts focusing primarily on plaintiff-side employment litigation, whether based on harassment, discrimination, retaliation, or wage and hour. I understand that most of my clients come to me at a hard time in their lives when paying for an attorney is not possible. I take great pride in being able to serve these clients on a contingency basis, meaning that they are not charged an upfront hourly rate, and more often than not, I’m able to advance all litigation costs. In my view, this places my clients on equal footing with their much larger employers who are able to spend thousands – if not hundreds of thousands – of dollars on their big firm legal defenses.
In addition to employment litigation, I also have significant experience in all types of business disputes and consumer protection cases, including what is commonly referred to as “lemon law.”
My insights into the legal system, together with the skills and knowledge I possess, come from my previous experience at large national law firms, where I represented numerous Fortune500 companies, but ultimately became disillusioned with the idea of always defending the “Big Guys.” Since founding my own small firm in 2016, I have enjoyed working closely with clients to narrowly tailor my efforts to best match their goals. As my firm grows, so too does my commitment to each client and I will continue to measure the success of my firm based solely on the success and vindication of my clients’ claims and rights.
