Biography

As an employment lawyer representing employees throughout Ohio, I believe that successful legal outcomes starts with effective attorney-client communication. I represent clients a wide range of matters, including wage and hour claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Ohio minimum wage and overtime law; Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations; Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) violations; USERRA violations; Title VII discrimination and retaliation claims; sexual harassment; hostile work environment; and severance and employment contract reviews and negotiations. I also provide representation in jury trials, arbitrations, and mediations in front of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission.

I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and earned my undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University. Go Bucks! I completed my J.D., cum laude, from Capital University Law School where I was Managing Editor on the Capital University Law Review. While in law school I also served as a judicial extern for the Honorable Judge Michael H. Watson of the Southern District of Ohio and the Honorable Jeffery S. Sutton, Chief Justice of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

8 Questions Answered
Q. Can an employer reduce the pay rate of your final paycheck to minimum wage if you do not provide two weeks notice?
A: Ohio is an at-will state, meaning that an employer can change the terms and conditions of the employees employment for any reason or no reason at all. This means that an employer could implement a policy reducing hourly rates if an employee fails to provide a two weeks' notice as long as the employee earns at least minimum wage for every hour the employee worked and overtime at time and-one-half the employee's regular rate for all hours worked in excess of 40 in a single work week. Ohio's minimum wage for non-tipped employees increased in 2022 to $9.30 per hour.
Q. I was fired for retaliation by the owner of the restaurant I worked for what can I do
A: You should speak to an attorney and have your case evaluated. Your employer may have violated federal and Ohio wage and hour laws by withholding your tips. While tip pooling arrangements are permissible, management and supervisory personnel are not permitted to participate. Federal and Ohio wage laws also protect employees from retaliation for complaining about tip wage theft.
Q. Have I been misclassified as independent contractor ? I have been running a business for someone for 8 yrs .
A: You should call and attorney and request a case evaluation. Whether a 1099 independent contractor is misclassified is a fact specific analysis based on a number of factors.
