At its core, labor and employment law is a people-oriented practice. As such, relationships are the bedrock of my practice. I strive to be respectful in all of my personal interactions, whether I am speaking with clients, opposing counsel or members of the judiciary. That is how relationships are built and relationships help generate favorable outcomes.
