Summary

I strongly believe that everyone deserves a voice – especially those who have unfairly lost their job due to the insidious and shameful discrimination of their employer. I became an employment lawyer so that I could speak up for and defend workers who are unable to defend themselves against the disproportionate power of their employer. As an associate attorney at Mashel Law, I am proud to say I am a member of a team of lawyers who are deeply committed to representing workers who have been denied their right to work in a safe and harassment free work environment.

Before I began my legal career, I worked for United Cerebral Palsy as a Medicaid Service Coordinator providing access to social services to families caring for loved ones with disabilities and special health care needs in the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn, Bronx, and Manhattan. There, I learned how to effectively advocate for a vulnerable population.

Throughout my years as a lawyer I have successfully litigated against international corporations, counties and municipalities, the State of New Jersey, and even our own Federal Government. In addition, I routinely represent public employees such as teachers, police officers, and corrections officers when they are being unjustly brought up on phony disciplinary charges. For employees being offered a less than adequate severance agreement, I regularly advocate on their behalf seeking an enhancement and have had great success in doing so.

I do not shy away from complex litigation matters. In addition to litigating employment discrimination matters, I have successfully litigated personal injury matters, consumer fraud matters, shareholder disputes, partnership disputes, and the enforceability of restrictive covenants.
