My Focus

I help lawyers with the HR-side of running their firm.

From employment litigation to general compliance, I assist employers in all areas of employment law.

As a law firm grows, practitioners face many employment law hurdles. Is your paralegal exempt from the FLSA’s overtime requirements? What are the best practices for ensuring your staff keeps client information confidential?

And then, a firm must also address the general minutia facing all employers: new hire reporting requirements to the DOL; storing personnel files; creating PTO policies; establishing timekeeping procedures; the list goes on and on.

My Approach

I want you to call me. An employee has an HR-question you don’t know the answer to? Call me. Not sure how to notify the DOL of an employee termination? Call me. Unsure how to handle an employee’s complaint about unwanted comments made by a coworker? Call me.

Managing people is hard. Navigating the complex landscape of employment laws is also hard. I want to help.

My Background

I grew up in an Atlanta suburb with four siblings, three dogs, two birds, and one squirrel. Since infancy (essentially), I wanted to be a lawyer. My grandparents will tell you this desire stems from our ritual of watching Matlock together, and depending on the audience, I might agree. Who doesn’t want to be Ben Matlock

With law school as the end goal, I received a B.S. from Georgia Tech. I later moved to New Jersey to attend Rutgers School of Law. During law school, I worked as the senior managing editor of the Rutgers Law Review, served on the Moot Court Board, and interned for a Justice on the New Jersey Supreme Court. I was entirely too cold in New Jersey and, after three years, quickly decided to come home to Georgia.

Following law school, I clerked for Judge Robert L. Vining, Jr. of the Northern District of Georgia.
