A strong internal sense of justice is at the root of my advocacy work

As a young person, I saw how the law is often used by the powerful to the disadvantage of the less powerful.

Coming from a working-class, underprivileged community, I wanted to find a way to use the law to help my neighbors. I chose to focus on workers’ rights law because where I come from a person’s ability to provide for their family is dependent on their employment. I see my wage and hour law practice as essential social justice work.

I worked in the restaurant and retail industries before becoming an attorney. These experiences shaped my sense of justice.
