"Being a plaintiffs’ attorney means I spend every day fighting for real human beings who are being taken advantage of or have been injured by a company. The people I represent matter; their stories are important. So, whether it’s a mass tort or wage theft claim, I take seriously my job to help my clients tell their stories and vindicate their rights.
