Originally from England, I was an attorney at a top 20 law firm in London where I spent several years defending large corporations against employment claims by their employees. After moving to California, I focused my practice on representation of low and middle wage workers.
I worked as a staff attorney at Centro Legal de la Raza, a legal service non-profit in Oakland, providing legal services to mainly Spanish-speaking clients in the areas of housing and employment law.
Since opening my office in Los Angeles, I have co-counseled with non-profit organizations including Bet Tzedek Legal Services and The Wage Justice Center in wage and hour and fraudulent transfer/successor liability cases.
My commitment to providing legal services to underrepresented workers continues. In March 2014, I was appointed to the State Bar of California Civil Justice Strategies Task Force, a 20 person committee tasked with recommending steps to address the civil justice gap.
