As a lawyer, I know that at the end of the day, the work I do affects peoples’ lives and livelihoods. That is a solemn responsibility and not one I take lightly.
My job is to solve the labor and employment problems that keep my clients up at night and threaten the very existence of their businesses. The kinds of matters I handle often cause a great deal of anxiety, embarrassment and frustration that can make an uncomfortable situation even more complicated. In light of that, true legal representation demands more than experience, but an understanding of the professional and personal challenges that typically accompany these matters.
I have spent my career in the courtroom and use that knowledge to help clients focus on what’s truly important in the real world of courtroom and jury dynamics to determine whether they have a winnable case. Sometimes facts that may seem terribly important won’t do much to influence a judge or a jury. Sometimes little things that may seem like they have very little to do with a case may actually make all the difference in the world. No one can determine with any degree of certainty what will actually happen in a courtroom, but I focus on improving my clients’ odds.
