Silicon Valley Office 
Employment Contracting, PIP Disputes, Retaliation, NonCompetes

Unlike many attorneys, I provide in-career employee consultations, intervention, document review and strategies for job protection and in anticipation of separations. These projects may also involve an assessment of independent contractor status, misclassifications, disputed temporary & leased employee scenarios and/or unfair business practices. 

Employment Discrimination, Harassment, Hostile Work Environment Claims 

I have prosecuted EEOC, DFEH (Title VII & FEHA) complaints and litigated claims involving age, sex, race, disability, race and gender discrimination.  I offer assistance with disability & statutory protected leave scenarios and help in-service employees save their employment relationship. These engagements are the core of my employment practice.   
Labor Code Violations,  Administrative Hearings, CUIAB

I have been privileged to represent clients at Labor Commissioner (DLSE) hearings, the MSPB, DOL, EEOC and DFEH.  In appropriate situations, I will represent my clients at EDD/CUIAB appeals and assist them in fighting for their rights under California law.
