About Me
Interview questions and answers:

This is important to me because I get to help individuals when they need help getting through a rough patch in their lives. Losing a job is never easy. Losing one because you have been discriminated or retaliated against is even worse. Being able to help guide, advise and represent real people through these difficult transitions in their lives is a fulfilling part of what I do.

I have been with Spitz for over 13 years. I decided very early on in my career here that it was the best fit for me because it allowed me to dive into practice areas and gain real world experience you simply to do get at most other firms as a young attorney. Gaining that experience early on has helped mold me into the attorney I am over a decade later.

Always protect yourself and your rights. Despite what your employer may tell you or an HR representative may tell you, the employer is always building their case or defense against you should you decide to stand up for your rights. So return the favor. Protect yourself. Keep documents, preserve evidence, make copies of documents your provide to your employer, and if you feel discriminated against, file a written complaint that is both timely and as detailed as possible. It will save you later on should you ever need it.
