I have a unique approach to employment law as I have represented both employers and employees in my law practice over the last 14 or so years. When I was in law school, I interned for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission which is the federal agency responsible for enforcing the federal employment laws. My first job out of law school was working for a small law firm in Washington, D.C. where I represented federal government employees in employment discrimination cases against the federal government. I was then an administrative law judge deciding unemployment insurance cases for the State of Maryland. I then went into private practice and have continued to represent employees and employers in all manner of employment cases.
I currently handle all forms of private sector employment cases including termination, discrimination, harassment, wage and hour, and breach of contract. I assist individuals in negotiating discrimination and harassment cases against employers. I also draft, review and analyze non-compete agreements, severance agreements, employment contracts, and employment handbooks and policies. I assist employers in understanding and complying with the employment laws in an effort to resolve disputes so as to avoid costly litigation. If a case does head to litigation, I represent clients in state and federal courts. I am licensed to practice law in Arizona, Nevada, California, Maryland, New York and the District of Columbia.
