Practice Information
The attorneys and staff with whom I work embody the highest ideals of the legal profession; passion, intellectual agility, integrity and diligence. Our reputation for success in employment law has been earned by holding fast to our core principles while employing modern business practices and technologies so that our clients enjoy a consistent level of success in discrimination, harassment and wage and hour lawsuits. We consistently provide our clients creative legal solutions relative to the demands of our multifaceted society and global marketplace. We have been representing employees and employers in civil rights matters since 1991. We believe our representation of both employers and employees makes us better lawyers regardless of which side we represent in an individual case.

We represent businesses and employees in the following areas:

Wrongful Termination
cases (including race, gender, disability, age, religion, national
origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, and pregnancy)
Sexual Harassment
Family Medical Leave Act
Negotiating and drafting severance agreements
Negotiating and drafting employment agreements
Breach of Contract
Wage disputes, including unpaid wages; overtime violations; meal time and rest period violations

Our office has represented hundreds of clients and the Testimonials on this page speak to the outstanding results already achieved. We value the ability to effect social change through the work we do on behalf of our clients. We are here to answer your questions when you call. We will treat you with respect and explain what is happening with your claim every step of the way through the litigation process.

As an attorney and Harvard trained mediator, my goal is to resolve your legal problem as effectively, fairly and efficiently as the circumstances will permit. When mediation isn't appropriate, my colleagues and I are ready, willing and able to take your claim or defense to court. We'll fight hard to protect your rights.

Thank you for stopping by the page. If you have the time, I'd enjoy hearing from you.

Best regards,

JD, University of San Francisco Law School
Certificate in Negotiation and Mediation, Harvard Law School

Several years ago one of my assistants thought we should post a sample group of comments and feedback I'd received over the years.
What follows is a sampling of the notes and letters received from clients, attorneys and others that we have stuffed into a box in the file room.

"This is an excellent result." Chubb Insurance

"If it were not for your
calm, open-mind and laid back nature, we probably wouldn't have made it
through this. We still can't believe that we found you through only the
yellow pages."

--Mr & Mrs. R.

"Just a short note to thank
you for your advice and support during my practice sale. You gave me
much more than your expert legal effort. You gave me a caring,
personable support at a time when I really need it."

--from a Marin County Doctor.

"For those of you who don't
know me, or the struggle I'm going through, but gave anyways, I want to
thank you from the bottom of my heart... Thank you and Blessings."

--Mr. R. in Fairfax, CA

"We are having to sell our
house here in San Rafael... I wanted to let you know how much we
appreciated your advice with regards to this matter. It was a pleasure
dealing with you."

--K.P. & D.S. in San Rafael,CA

"I lucked out when I got you as my lawyer."

-- S.

"Your presentation in May hit the spot! Thanks for coming to Santa Rosa to talk to our group!"

--R.J. in Santa Rosa, CA

"Your help this year has been a Godsend. Thank you for everything."
--K & T

"We had such a great time in your class! You are a real genuine and good person in your soul, which comes through."
--former student

"I enjoyed working with you
on the (name omitted) mediation... You were tough and realistic, and
you gave (name omitted) great support and advice. And you never lost
your cool. It's a pleasure to work with such good lawyers."

--from a Marin County attorney

"If we can use your
services in the future or can refer someone to you we will certainly do
so. Your follow up was excellent and will be remembered."

--V & S.
