Employees should be evaluated solely based on their work, but that ideal is not always a reality. Too many women, employees of color, whistleblowers, and workers across many other protected classes have been forced to endure discrimination, harassment, or retaliation in the workplace. I can’t change that reality, but I can help you do something about it.

I became a plaintiff’s employment lawyer to advocate for justice on behalf of employees. Like most workers, I, too, have experienced challenges in the workplace, and I understand too well how those challenges can impact a person’s health and well-being. It is incredibly difficult to find the strength to stand up for your employment rights, but no employee should have to suffer in silence. I want to help give you a voice, and I know how to navigate the intricacies involved in our country’s employment laws.

I have achieved successful outcomes for employees in both litigation and non-litigation matters involving discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, whistleblowing, and other employment-related claims. Among the highlights of my professional experience, in 2018, I served on a trial team that won an over $1.3 million verdict for our client on her age discrimination claim against American University.

I am proud to achieve favorable results for many of my clients, but I cannot guarantee you any certain results. Each case is unique. What I can guarantee is that I will be fully transparent with you, that I will approach your employment issue with compassion, and that I will zealously advocate for your rights, leaving no stone unturned.

Before co-founding District Employment Law, I worked as a plaintiff’s employment lawyer at Bernabei & Kabat, PLLC for over six years.

I graduated with honors from the George Washington University Law School. During law school, I represented clients in employment matters as a student attorney in GW’s Public Justice Advocacy Clinic. I also served as an Articles Editor for the Federal Communications Law Journal. Prior to law school, I graduated summa cum laude from Clemson University’s Honors College with a B.A. in Communication Studies and a minor in Legal Studies.
