Kevin is excited to join the firm and combine his practical HR business experience with his legal skills and knowledge in order to best advise employers on labor and employment matters as well as aggressively litigate on behalf of clients to achieve their goals. The two years he spent early in his career litigating on behalf of Plaintiffs also gives him the knowledge to be able to quickly assess the strengths and weaknesses in a Plaintiff’s case and find other reasonable solutions when prolonged litigation may not be the best route. So whether it is defending against a single plaintiff claim or a 50,000 person class action lawsuit or your company needs some advice or training relating to labor or employment laws, Kevin is happy to assist you however he can.
