I am an employment and commercial litigation attorney. My employment practice is focused on wrongful termination, sexual harassment and wage and hour counseling and litigation primarily on behalf of plaintiffs.
In May 2019, I obtained a $5.375 million settlement of a PAGA action on behalf of employees of a subsidiary of Menzies Aviation (Aircraft Service International). Although 75% of all PAGA settlements are required by statute to be paid to the state, the employees received an average payout of nearly $700 per employee. Since there were many employees who were only employed for a month or two, roughly half of the employees received over $1,000, with dozens of employees receiving awards in excess of $1,600.
I also provide counseling and litigation expertise to employers and employees on non-competes and in trade secret disputes related to employee hirings and terminations.
My commercial litigation practice is centered on the representation of real estate developers and commercial property owners in contract disputes, business tort claims and unlawful detainer proceedings.
