My practice focuses on meeting the needs of individuals who need assistance in negotiating contracts or want to level the playing field when faced with a difficult employment situation. I regularly consult with and represent employees from all industries and areas of employment-from entry-level workers to managers and highly-skilled professionals to executives and corporate officers.

Although reaching an amicable resolution is often in all parties' best interest, hiring an experienced litigator can force your employer to take your situation more seriously. Throughout my career, I have had significant success in obtaining large recoveries for my clients. Representative cases include:

Helping former employees of a large annuity company obtain a $20.5 million settlement in a pattern and practice case involving race and sex discrimination and retaliation. EEOC et al. v. Jackson National Life Insurance Company et al., Civil Action No. 16-cv-02472-PAB-SKC.
Obtaining a $485,000 settlement on behalf of a qui tam plaintiff who was terminated after complaining that his employer was fraudulently selling grenade launchers to the federal government.
Winning a jury verdict of nearly $15 million on behalf of seven low wage earners, who worked sorting mail for a private federal contractor. Camara, et. al. v. Matheson Trucking, Inc., et.al., 12-CV-03040 (D.Colo. 2015).
In addition to litigation, I consult with clients to help them negotiate severance agreements and non-competition agreements and have extensive experience in providing consulting services for executives who need assistance to understand and negotiate contractual obligations and compensation packages.

Outside of the employment law context, I represent individuals in drafting wills, trusts, and other estate planning documents. I file and defend lawsuits involving estate planning issues; property disputes, including quiet title actions; breach of contract; construction defect; and several other legal claims.

I also represent businesses who need assistance with litigation, business disputes, administrative proceedings, corporate documents, and employment law specific documents (including employee handbooks, employee contracts, and employment law policies).

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
