As an attorney, I represent employees in employment law matters. Some examples:
EDUCATION LAW: I represent public school teachers with employment issues throughout western North Carolina. I am a member of the legal team that serves the North Carolina Association of Educators and also represent educators who are not members of NCAE.
ERISA DISABILITY CLAIMS: I represent disabled employees who have short and long term disability insurance through work and have had those claims denied.
UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS: I represent workers who have lost their jobs, whose employers contest their right to draw unemployment benefits.
In addition to the above, I advise employees on illegal terminations, wage and hour violations, discrimination and sexual harassment claims and other areas of employment law. I also provide small-business advice to writers, artists and other entrepreneurs, including business formation, contract and copyright and trademark matters.
I am an honors graduate of the University of North Carolina School of Law, where I was an Articles Editor for the North Carolina Law Review. I am a past Chair of the NC Bar Association Labor & Employment Law Section and have practiced law for 25 years in Asheville and Boston.
