"I am proud to help plaintiffs vindicate their rights by prosecuting claims on their behalf against some of the largest companies in the country. As a member of the firm’s mass arbitration practice, I turn the tables back on companies who may seek to avoid accountability for their actions by including arbitration agreements in their contracts with consumers or employees."
