How I Help Clients
My role is to help victimized employees and to stop wrongful workplace conduct.
In some situations, demand letters may be appropriate; in other cases, litigation may be warranted. Sometimes clients have been terminated before they come to our firm, which may be the result of discrimination or retaliatory claims (such as complaining about sexual harassment). In these cases, not only have clients been victimized, they also must face the prospect of finding a new job. Other clients are not paid the wages they are owed.
I help empower clients so that they can make the decisions that are right for them with respect to how to proceed with their matter. This law firm works resolutely in seeking to achieve client objectives.
Clients should know that when they retain our firm, powerlessness ends, and their employer will be held to account for wrongful workplace conduct and violating community safety rules that protect all of us.
