I am an experienced employment law attorney providing legal services to small and medium-sized employers at competitive rates. I focus on your legal issues so you can focus on running your business.
For over 25 years, I have represented employers. My practice has included jury trials, administrative proceedings, counsel and advice, manager training, and the development of policies and practices. I have served as a mediator in over 40 employment disputes. Best Lawyers in America, Labor and Employment, and Missouri SuperLawyers have recognized my work as an employment law attorney.
Experience matters, and so does your budget. The cost of hiring an experienced attorney is often out of reach for small and medium-sized employers, but by taking advantage of technology and keeping overhead low, I provide quality legal services at affordable rates. I have a practical approach that identifies areas of likely exposure and I develop a strategy to address those issues in the most efficient way. I also understand that the cost of litigation almost always exceeds the cost of a reasonable settlement. Where possible, I position my clients’ cases so that a reasonable settlement is an option.
Employers who do not have a general counsel or in-house legal department often need help with more than employment law. I have handled commercial disputes –contract disputes, shareholder claims, real estate cases — and even domestic relations matters. I’m a problem solver and can help businesses settle conflicts outside the realm of employment law.
