Greetings! I am an second generation Phoenician, and have been practicing law since 2012. I have extensive litigation experience and have completed six trials, as well as numerous arbitrations. I also routinely provide guidance to clients regarding compliance, policy analysis, risk management, training, and best practices to manage risk and avoid litigation. I represent employers of all sizes regarding a wide range of employment issues. I have extensive experience handling litigation in federal and state courts, as well as administrative agencies in multiple jurisdictions. My experience includes defending employers and management against claims of discrimination, harassment, leaves and accommodations, wrongful termination, retaliation, misclassification, non-competes, non-solicits, unfair competition, trade secrets, defamation, negligent hiring and retention, and other torts. I also counsel employers on policies and procedures, hiring and termination, pre-employment screening, drug and alcohol testing, covenants not to compete, non-solicitation agreements, employment agreements, federal and state wage and hour issues, reductions in force, leaves and accommodations, paid sick time laws and regulations, litigation avoidance, and risk management.
