“Debbie has provided legal services for me, since 2010, and I have the greatest trust in her. She is competent, professional, and very reliable.

Tom (client)

With 20 years of varied legal experience, I have acquired broad expertise in representing individual and small business clients at every stage of the employment relationship – from the earliest phases of the hiring process up to and including separation and severance negotiations.

I provide support and counsel to clients facing difficult work related challenges, such as employee discipline, performance improvement, discrimination or termination.

Whether representing the client as a behind-the-scenes adviser, up-front negotiator or as litigator, I always remain focused on the clients’ wants and needs while striving to deliver the best possible results.
