Traditional Labor Lawyer

I believe in the labor movement and am dedicated to representing labor. Modern media places a premium on the executives running the companies that employ workers in today’s economy. Somehow, in our society today the company is put on a pedestal. The media has lost sight of the American workers. As Abraham Lincoln once said, “It is assumed that labor is available only in connection with capital; that nobody labors unless somebody else, owning capital, somehow by the use of it induces him to labor…Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.”

If you are tired of your employer trying to take advantage of you and your bargaining unit members, and you want to know what you can do about it under your collective bargaining agreement, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss developing a working relationship. I am an attorney who has experience in traditional labor practice.

I represent unions by providing counsel concerning internal governance and member rights, organizing strategies, contract negotiations, approaches to collective bargaining and various other issues, including representation of the union in all types of cases ranging from simple contract disputes and representational petitions to cases before state and federal courts, arbitrators, investigators, and administrative judges from various agencies including the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in unfair labor practices and duty of fair representation claims, the Department of Labor (DOL), and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in retaliation, disability, racial, and sexual discrimination claims under Title VII, the Labor-Management Relations Act, the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act, and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”). Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss how I could help benefit your union and the union’s membership.
