About Me
Interview questions and answers:

I used to be a criminal defense attorney. It was always the power of the state against a lone citizen, so I loved fighting for the little guy. Employers are always the strong party in the relationship. Employment law is a way for employees to be treated fairly and get justice so I realized employment law is a way to keep fighting for the little guy.

The rules of procedure that allow claims from any citizen to be judged fairly while balancing any asymmetry of power between the parties. Not having an effective way to protect your rights is like having no rights.

For me every employee represents a person with a story to tell. A family, dreams, goals, mistakes regrets, rights, and feelings. Companies don’t feel guilt, regret, indignation or are left with a feeling of injustice. Helping a person impacts a life, representing a corporation impacts a balance sheet.
