Employment Law

Since entering law school, I knew I wanted to practice in employment law. When we lose our employment or are denied payment of wages due to us, we can lose so much more in life.

Helping Employees and Employers Alike

I have represented dozens of employees who have lost their jobs due to discrimination, retaliation, and harassment. Like all of my clients with any type of claim, I take your case very personally. I know how to fight to get you the compensation and respect you deserve.

Prevention is Always The Best Policy

We have so many employment laws in this country that, at times, it can be hard for employers to keep up. That is why I also represent and counsel employers so they can better adhere to employment regulations in the future. Prevention is always the best policy. To help prevent employment lawsuits from beginning in the first place, I regularly teach a seminar series in employment law for employers at Whatcom Community College. No one wants to end up in litigation, and I believe education is the key to avoiding costly and stressful legal action. I practice in the following areas:

  • Harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Retaliation
  • Wrongful Discharge
  • Wage and Hour
  • Human Resources Consulting
  • Handbook Drafting
  • Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation Contracts and Disputes
  • Severance Agreements
  • Harassment and Discrimination Investigations

If you find yourself confused by these changes, whether as an employee or employer, do not hesitate to reach out for a consultation.
