Litigation can often be prevented by creating clear employment policies and by writing effective, unmistakable employment contracts.

But disputes still will occur, and when they do, you will want an attorney who knows your industry, and is able to bring the legal knowledge and skills necessary to prevail in dispute resolution. My job is to keep employers out of court.

Resolving Employee Contract Disputes

I have enjoyed success for my clients in the courtroom and at the negotiation table.

For more than 40 years, I have served as employment lawyer for Illinois employers, based on my legal knowledge, my familiarity with the courts and various governmental agencies, and my approach, which combines aggressiveness in pursuing client objectives with sensitivity to the costs employers must bear.
