How Judith works.
Intuitively and logically.
First, I ask a lot of questions.
...then analyze your facts against current California law...
...to craft a legal employment solution that takes your unique goals into consideration.
A native of Brookline, Massachusetts and middle child of a cardiologist and a nurse, Judith came to California after graduating from Boston University School of Law. Before law school, she taught college composition and essay writing on the east coast. During law school, Judith worked as a law clerk for William P. Homans, a well-known criminal defense attorney in downtown Boston who was instrumental in overturning the death penalty in Massachusetts.
Judith discovered a passion for employment law early in her legal career, when the San Francisco law firm where she was an associate was retained by the parents of a teenager whose rape case would make national news. Since then, Judith has managed hundreds of employment cases to settlement or verdict. She remembers every single client and learns from all of them.
