Practice Areas

Employment Litigation

From discrimination to sexual harassment and retaliation, I represent individuals in lawsuits against employers. Without question and because we spend most of our lives at work, some of the most emotionally-charged issues in litigation fall under the domain of employment law. Are you having legal issues regarding discrimination, harassment or retaliation? Do you qualify for whistleblower protection? I focus much of my practice on employment law, so I can guide you through your issues.


Civil Rights

If you feel your civil rights have been violated, it is best to contact an attorney that can review the facts in your case and advise you of the best way to proceed. Civil rights violations are often difficult to identify and even more difficult to litigate. I can work to enforce your rights and navigate the court system on your behalf.


Criminal Defense

Encounters with law enforcement have become fare more common than in years past. Many people who are not what we consider criminals are charged with criminal offenses, whereas in the past, encounters with law enforcement were far less common and less likely to result in an arrest. While many law enforcement agencies are working to reduce the numbers of people charged with crimes, the numbers of people being arrested and charged continues to rise. Incarceration rates are at all time highs. If you find yourself charged with a crime, you need a lawyer as early in the process as possible in order to ensure your rights are protected at every step in the process. I will work to enforce your rights throughout the process to ensure an optimal result.



As a small firm, I also provide representation in general litigation matters. Society is becoming increasingly litigious. Many people find themselves sued, even after they have been the victim of the improper practices of another. I work hard to protect your rights and minimize the losses inherent in the litigation process.
As a former municipal tenant advocate attorney and municipal rent control attorney, I also provide landlord-tenant representation designed mainly for small building landlords. Landlord-Tenant reprsentation is 100% Full Service and personalized.
