Practicing attorney for over 31 years!
In the employment context I primarily help individuals or groups of people pursue legal violations committed against them by their present, or former employer. Most individuals come to me not knowing exactly what laws have been broken but believing generally, they have been wronged. It is my job to analyze each individual’s particular situation, to discern which, if any, laws have been broken, and to decide the appropriate venue for protecting his or her rights.
I have assisted individuals in cases involving all types of discrimination in employment such as, race, gender, harassment, same-sex and traditional sexual harassment, pregnancy discrimination, disability discrimination, religious and national origin discrimination. I have also represented individuals in pursuing claims against an employer for injustice regarding wages including, unequal pay, improper calculation of overtime, failure to pay wages and/or supply other promised benefits, and calculation of commissions or other sales related wages.
The following list of the particular statutes I have litigated on behalf of individuals:
Part of my regular assistance to individuals in the employment context includes reviewing and advising individuals on severance packages. This may include negotiating for additional compensation, modifying the terms and conditions of the settlement agreement itself as well as general advice on pursuit of litigation instead of acceptance of the terms of a severance package.
I have also assisted many individuals resolve legal problems involving Non-Compete and other restraining types of contractual provisions. This representation has included negotiating the language used in the Non-Compete provisions upon contracting, and defending individuals in claims by a former employer for breach.
