Drawing from over 30 years of experience in employment and labor law, as an employer defense attorney and as a Human Resources Vice President, he developed a unique litigation-avoidance program.

In these situations, leaders who know what to do and how to do it have a tremendous advantage over those who don’t, in avoiding lawsuits.
