I lead the firm’s employment law practice representing both employers and employees. I advise clients on non-competition, non-solicitation, and confidentiality agreements, in addition to employee policies, hiring and firing, employment reviews, employment handbooks, and complying with state and federal employment laws. My favorite part of my practice is serving as de facto general counsel for several businesses; businesses large enough to have regular legal needs, but not enough to justify an in-house lawyer. This allows me to become part of the business family and help my clients achieve their professional goals. Legal issues are important, but often time-consuming. My goal is to handle as much as possible so that clients can focus on running their business.
Some of my representative litigation matters include: Wage Act claims on behalf of employees, employment and housing discrimination claims on behalf of employees and tenants, fiduciary duty disputes among partners and shareholders of closely held businesses, business to business breach of contract claims and representations of both landlord and tenants in leasing and eviction disputes. My transactional experience includes serving as de facto general counsel for small businesses requiring assistance with corporate formation, corporate governance and contract drafting.
I began my career at a large, international law firm handling corporate work. After a few years, I opened up a solo practice, which turned into a partnership a year later.
