    2 years

  2. Contracts and agreements
    Contracts are not an area for a 'cut and paste' approach. Yes, there are forms out there, but a qualified attorney guides you through a complete evaluation of all the issues.

    12 years

  3. Employee benefits
    An area that is closely related to employment law, but with its own issues and laws.

    2 years


I have been an attorney for more than 25 years.  I am currently admitted and in good standing in Florida, New York and Texas. 

My focus is employment law:  contracts, non-dislcosure | non-complete agreements, workplace safety and rules, discrimination, fair pay issues (FLSA) and of course, termination (firing) concerns.

If you feel you have an employment related matter, I encourage prospective clients to contact me directly here on AVVO.

Extremely Happy with Advice I received from Joe
Joe was easy to talk to and heard my concerns regarding a personnel issue I considering litigating. He gave great advice in next steps and suggested that I follow up afterward. Upon follow-up we agreed that due to the "At Will" nature of my position it would not be in my best interest to move forward. After further issues occurred, I shared the final outcome with him and we concurred that my employer would be able to spin things however they wanted. Although not what I was hoping for, it was pretty much what I expected. It saved me a lot of time and effort to wind up with the same outcome.
