My interest in the law has always focused on how it impacts everyday people and our quality of life. No matter where you’re employed, what happens at work has a huge effect on your overall wellbeing -- it shapes your financial situation, your health, your relationship to family and friends. And protecting employee rights is not just good for individual clients; it also makes for a more just community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. I appreciate what’s at stake when our clients are facing challenges in the workplace, and I am proud to advocate for their best interests.
