Our Team

We are a boutique labor and employment law firm. At first blush, that might seem to be a narrow area of the law. However, the reality is that even within that realm, no two members of the KWW team have the exact same blend of training and experience. For one, the focus might be on litigation. For another, the focus might be employee benefits, or defending EEO charges, or advising clients on employee health issues that implicate the ADA and FMLA, or handling OSHA issues.

The key to delivering effective and efficient service to our clients is matching the client’s particular need with the KWW professional who is best positioned to meet that need. KWW professionals also excel at collaborating with each other and sharing our expertise in a seamless fashion in order to serve our clients. Below is some information about each member of our team.
