Biography

As an employment lawyer representing employees throughout Ohio, I believe that successful legal outcomes starts with effective attorney-client communication. I represent clients a wide range of matters, including wage and hour claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Ohio minimum wage and overtime law; Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations; Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) violations; USERRA violations; Title VII discrimination and retaliation claims; sexual harassment; hostile work environment; and severance and employment contract reviews and negotiations. I also provide representation in jury trials, arbitrations, and mediations in front of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission.

I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and earned my undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University. Go Bucks! I completed my J.D., cum laude, from Capital University Law School where I was Managing Editor on the Capital University Law Review. While in law school I also served as a judicial extern for the Honorable Judge Michael H. Watson of the Southern District of Ohio and the Honorable Jeffery S. Sutton, Chief Justice of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered
Q. Can an employer charge you for quitting?
A: There is not enough information here to fully answer your question. Do you have an employment contract that requires you to provide your employer with 30-days notice before ending your employment? Are you paid on an hourly basis? If you are an hourly employee and not a properly classified exempt employee paid on a salary basis, your employer is not permitted to make deductions to your paycheck that would cause your compensation to fall below minimum wage for every hour worked.
Q. Hello. I started a new job recently. January 3rd is a public holiday. Am i entitled to time and a half?
A: Generally, federal law only requires employers to pay employees overtime at time and 1/2 their regular rate of pay for hours actually worked over 40 in a workweek. Unless you have an employment contract or collective bargaining agreement states otherwise, you would only be entitled to overtime pay if working on January 3rd would put you over 40 hours worked for that workweek.
