Heather credits her experience working full-time in office administration and human resources during law school for her seamless transition into management-side labor and employment law. The skills she developed as a legal secretary and office manager help strengthen her appreciation and understanding of clients’ concerns today and gave her the tools to be efficient, respectful and meticulous in her role as an attorney.
For 19 years, Heather has concentrated her nationwide practice in employment and labor counseling and litigation, including discrimination and trade secret / non-compete lawsuits, FLSA class actions, labor negotiations and arbitrations, affirmative action, and OFCCP/DOL audits. She counsels on day-to-day operations, human resources, and management decisions regarding employees, practices and policies. Heather also works comfortably with FMLA/ADA, sexual harassment, affirmative action, union avoidance, wage & hour and other types of employee and management training. Her clients operate across the U.S. in industries like vending, healthcare, transportation, parking, automotive repair, construction, staffing, hospitality (restaurants/taverns), banking, and manufacturing to name a few.
Heather has been a NAMA Knowledge Source Partner for over 18 years now and has enjoyed every minute of it working with NAMA and its members nationwide.
