Biography

I'm a civil rights plaintiffs' lawyer by lifelong passion and three decades of experience. Now of counsel to one of D.C.'s leading employment law firms, I was previously in sole practice representing individuals and organizations after litigating for the ACLU, the U.S. Justice Department's civil rights division, and an elite public interest firm. I am also a longtime adjunct professor at the George Washington University Law School.
