About me and my practice.

I am committed to resolving your workplace conflicts fairly while sustaining respect, relationships and resources. My work experiences as college professor and organizer have given me a deeper understanding of the role of lawyers in building a society based on human rights. I keep an open mind about what approach will best serve your interests, exercise care with the confidence you place in me and welcome your active participation.
