About
I am an experienced employment law and litigation attorney who brings extensive hands on proficiency in litigating employment law matters.

My experience includes almost 15 years in the Human Resources Law Group at one of the country's largest banks, as well as 5 years at a major labor and employment

"Fred successfully defended me and my company in an employment discrimination lawsuit. Not having been involved in litigation before, I was very nervous and confused about the entire process. Fred did a great job explaining the process, reassuring us that we would get through it, handling each step with minimal intrusion on our work, and finally in winning a summary judgment motion that dismissed the case. Although I hope to never be involved in litigation again, if I am, I will be certain to call on Fred."

"Fred negotiated improved terms of the severance agreement that my former employer offered me. He made sure that I received everything that was owed to me under my employment contract, and that the severance agreement was fair and protected me while I was seeking new employment. He was very thorough and kept me in the loop during the entire process. I would absolutely use him again should the need arise."
