My practice is focused primarily on employment law and federal litigation. I have litigated hundreds of cases in federal and state courts against large and small corporations.I have considerable experience representing employees that have been subjected to unlawful discrimination in the workplace. This includes representation for employees subjected to unlawful sexual harassment by co-workers and supervisors. Additionally, I frequently represent employees who have been subjected to unlawful retaliation by an employer for complaining about unlawful discrimination.A significant portion of my practice also focuses on representing whistleblowers for claims brought under the federal False Claims Act (“FCA”), the Pennsylvania Whistleblower Law, the New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act (“CEPA”), the New Jersey False Claims Act and other related laws.In addition to discrimination cases, I regularly handle federal and state appellate litigation, serious personal injury claims and representation of federal employees. I have also represented executive level employees in stock plan and contract disputes often implicating the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”) .Together with those areas, I actively pursue civil rights claims against municipalities, including claims by inmates and their families against prisons stemming from death or serious injury while incarcerated.I have been selected for the Pennsylvania “Rising Stars” list issued by Super Lawyers / Thomson Reuters each year from 2014 through 2017. I am a member of the Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Bucks County, District of Columbia and Virgin Islands Bar Associations.
