My practice focuses on labor and employment issues, including litigation, advice, and alternative dispute resolution related to civil rights, wage and hour, and contract issues, as well as labor negotiations, and administrative agency complaints.
As Operations Manager with the Bureau of Labor & Industries, I conducted conciliations (BOLI's post-investigation mediation process), and the parties frequently commented that I made the process more accessible. As an arbitrator with the Multnomah County Mandatory Arbitration Program, I have successfully presided over the resolution of employment law cases, collections, landlord-tenant, insurance coverage, and personal injury. I have been a small business owner, and can empathize with the struggle to maintain compliance with the law while establishing a viable business model; I have also been on the other side of the equation, employed at various times in companies of all sizes. As a result, I bring a uniquely balanced point of view to dispute resolution, and am well-positioned to assist the parties in moving away from entrenched positions toward resolution.
