I wanted to thank you for reviewing my profile.
CASES WE HANDLE
In a couple of years, I will have been practicing law for about 25 years. During my career we have represented many hard-working employees. Some of our clients held minimum wage positions. Some clients are CEO’s making seven-figures. They all have one thing in common and that is they will all receive the same “white glove” treatment in our office. When you hire our office you will have direct access to your lawyers. Throughout my career I have helped my clients through their tough times. Not being paid properly, being wrongfully terminated or harassed in the workplace can be devastating. I understand that and I’m here to help.
Over the years we have obtained millions upon millions of dollars for our firm’s clients. We have assisted thousands of employees in getting paid the proper wages they are owed. Employers may try to cut corners and misclassify employees as independent contractors, when they are employees. Employers often take advantage of employees by not paying overtime or not providing appropriate meal or rest periods. We have assisted employees in get compensated for mileage when they are using their cars for work purposes.
We have helped change policies in the workplace when our clients have been discriminated against, harassed or wrongfully terminated based on sex, age, race, medical condition, mental condition, religion, gender, sexual orientation, sexual identity, physical disability… The same goes for clients who have complained about illegal practices in the workplace and found themselves in the unemployment line or retaliated against.
We have helped hundreds of deaf and hard of hearing individuals get the reasonable accommodations they need in the workplace, at schools, hospitals and other business settings.
Finally, we have assisted many small/medium employers who do not have insurance coverage with issues that arise with their employees. It’s a good idea to have an attorney look at issues through the lens of an attorney who primarily represents employees. I think this perspective is a big advantage for my employer clients.
I believe it’s important to try to get along with your opponent. You don’t have to be mean and nasty to represent your client’s best interest. In fact, in my opinion it’s the opposite.
I’m picky when it comes to accepting cases. I accept about one of every thirty cases that call me. It’s important for me to take cases I believe in and I think I can make a difference on.
When I’m not working then I am spending time with my family or golfing. I’ve been married for over ten years and I have one great kid. We also have an English Bulldog named Norman.
