About My Practice

I joined the legal profession to practice employment law.    After many years of managing a small business, I became keenly aware that every workplace dispute presents its own set of issues, both personal and legal.  The details matter.  I believe effective advocacy is rooted in open and thorough communication between attorney and client, from initial consultation through settlement or judgment.
