Summary

Continuing to represent mostly employees with wage and hour, discrimination, and contractual employment disputes.

In addition to my legal education I have an MBA and became a Certified Fraud Examiner in 2011 to supplement my study of organizations and human behavior. I prefer federal court if the matter concerns an employment issue and the client is genuinely credible.

Having successfully negotiated a radio personality's employment dispute many years ago, that employee's station manager, earning a quarter million, chose me to represent him in severance negotiation, remarking that corporate counsel had told him during the radio personality's negotiation that I "take no prisoners." The manager perceived that to be a positive and I amicably negotiated a very favorable severance package for him as I had negotiated for the radio personality years prior.
