In my role as an employment and litigation associate attorney at BrownWinick, I aim to find innovative and effective solutions to fit your needs. I understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to the challenges you face as an employer, and I will work hard to get to know your business in order to provide you with valuable legal advice. I strive to be your trusted advisor, advocate, attorney – and more! 

My Approach

I believe that the best legal system is a collaborative one. My approach includes listening to your goals, explaining and framing the legal issues involved, and crafting practical solutions that work for you. I understand that finding the right legal approach means harmonizing your key business decisions with legal compliance. I will always work hard to put the right approach into action for you because your success is my success!
