I learned early in life how a “personal injury” can affect an entire family. When I was a teenager, my mother slipped on ice while running one morning. A homeowner negligently left their sprinklers on overnight during a winter freeze and an ice sheet formed on their sidewalk. My mother’s leg broke almost in half, and she severely broke her ankle, too. Even now, more than 15 years later, my mom still suffers from the injury and will have lifelong medical needs because of it. My memories of her multiple surgeries and her ongoing grueling recovery remind me that no matter how simple or unintentional an act of negligence may seem, the consequences for the victim can be life-changing.

Many of us define ourselves by the work we do. This makes sense- we spend most of our waking hours working, ideally for an employer who values our work and the effort we put in to being reliable employees. Many employers, unfortunately, fail to appreciate their workers, and use the power they have to take advantage of their employees.

They can do this in a variety of ways; they can fail to pay an employee overtime pay, even though the law requires them to; they can discriminate or terminate an employee for filing a worker’s compensation claim, taking time off under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), or to have surgery (the ADA, or Americans with Disabilities Act). In some cases, they may even discriminate against an employee based on race, gender, national origin, or sexual orientation.

No matter how your employer has taken advantage of you, our firm has the experience and knowledge to help you even the playing field. Whether you work for a multinational corporation or a local restaurant, we can and will help you hold your employer accountable for violations of the law.

What I do as an attorney can change the lives of the people who I represent. When my mother fell, the real life, day-to-day struggle of her injury taught me the importance of compassion for the injured. It also taught me that I must aggressively represent my clients so they can emotionally and financially get back on their feet and start over. My goal is to treat every client’s case like it was my own mother’s: With integrity, passion, and a dedication to justice.
