We help clients navigate their most important business and career decisions.
We counsel employees regarding wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation, wage issues, and other workplace disputes. If we cannot resolve your issues informally, we aggressively advocate on your behalf in state or federal court, arbitration, or mediation.
We help employees transition between career opportunities. We negotiate separation, release, and new employment agreements, and help you understand non-compete and other restrictive covenants – so you can protect your career and your future.
Protecting business rights.
We defend responsible employers against workplace claims. More importantly, we help put the right contracts and culture in place to minimize the risk of disputes. We also prosecute your rights against people and businesses that violate their obligations to you.
Our ultimate goal is to help you grow and succeed. We offer a trained eye for your documents, and trusted counsel on the legal aspects of your business. Together, we strategize on your critical decisions, so you can reach your potential.
Employer v. Contractor
Your facts and your goals drive everything.
For disputes, we identify your claims and defenses, and often prepare a demand letter or response. For contracts, we improve existing documents and draft new materials you may need. For business planning, we evaluate short- and long-term goals, and how to reach them.
With a strategy in place, we move forward – with litigation, contract work, or legal counsel on business and growth. We can also help you navigate the issues of a growing entrepreneur, such as intellectual property, estate planning, commercial real estate, exit planning, and more.
The experience to address your disputes, your documents, and your growth.

I love being a lawyer and I love changing a client’s perception of what it is like to work with a lawyer. I thrive on creating a uniquely positive and enjoyable client/lawyer relationship. By understanding our clients’ passions, ambitions, and the issues that keep them up at night, I am able to help them achieve their goals in a way that is custom-fit for them.
Kind words from our clients.
