Legal Practice

Labor, Employment & Employee Benefits:  I have broad knowledge of issues employers face under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Kentucky Civil Rights Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, Fair Housing Act and Wrongful Termination.


From litigating employment and labor disputes to representing employers at administrative proceedings, I provide clients with needed resources and effective advocacy to help protect their businesses. Recent accomplishments include the following:

  • Successfully obtained the dismissal of charges brought before the EEOC and Kentucky Commission on Human Rights.
  • Obtained successful results before the Kentucky Unemployment Insurance Commission.
  • Assisted in the garnishment of funds in excess of $5 million.

Looking Ahead

The areas of labor, employment and employee benefits are rapidly shifting and constantly evolving. It is imperative for employers to stay up-to-date with changing regulations to ensure that their practices and policies are in full compliance.
