Helping clients in a variety of employment matters, including cases involving sexual harassment, civil rights discrimination and retaliation, and whistleblower retaliation.

For most Americans, their job is a cornerstone of their life and few can afford having their careers unfairly derailed. For this reason, I am passionate about helping employees seek justice when their employer has violated their rights. I am proud that my work helps empower our hardworking clients.
