My Background

I have worked many years as a labor-relations lawyer and I am a negotiator, administrator, problem-solver and teacher with a diverse portfolio. With a Harvard Law degree and more than 25 years experience, I can provide the highest quality negotiation, contract and workplace advice and assistance, as well as pre-packaged or tailored training for you or your staff, without the big-firm mark-up. I have taught at Rutgers University and currently teach for the Scheinman Institute at Cornell University. I provide direct services, counsel and advice to organizations small and large, as well as to individuals.
