I practice primarily in the areas of governmental law, commercial litigation and business transactions, and labor and employment law, and criminal law. I am an experienced attorney with substantial trial experience having tried over 20 jury trials to verdict and over 100 bench trials.

My labor law experience includes negotiating collective bargaining agreements with a number of unions on behalf of management and counseling employers regarding labor relations and employee discipline. In the area of employment law, I have represented employers in federal court and handled employment discrimination appeals before the IDHR and EEOC. I have also drafted employee handbooks and employment contracts, including termination agreements.
