For more than 27 years, I have focused on providing individualized advice and counseling to employers throughout the United States. By focusing on the individual needs and goals of my clients, I have built a long track record of success in representing them in administrative proceedings with the OFCCP, NLRB, EEOC, OSHA and other Department of Labor agencies at the federal and state level. When litigation does occur, my experience has translated into successful representation of companies in jury trials, appeals and arbitration. I have worked with clients in a wide variety of industries, including retail, service, hospitality, construction, manufacturing, government contractors and the public sector.

You are an employer who wants experienced and practical advice, not just someone who can repeat what you would be able to find through a couple of web searches and then send you a bill. While knowing what a statute or regulations says is an important first step, you know that to be successful, it is more than just that. You also know that to be successful in business, it is about taking risks...informed risks. You do not want someone just to tell you why it is risky to do something as anyone can do that. Instead, you want an adviser to partner with you on weighing the risks and potential rewards so that you can make a sound business decision.
I am a partner who is pragmatic; I am focused on what makes you and your business unique; and I prefer a long-term relationship that is mutually beneficial. Because I have experience throughout the US and regularly work with clients outside of Georgia, I also have an extensive network of contacts in and outside of the US to whom I can turn when needed.
