AREAS OF SPECIALTY
Helen's practice includes the following areas:
♦ Employment Litigation. Many clients consult Helen when they feel they have been treated unfairly at work. Perhaps they have been denied overtime pay, or meal or rest breaks. They may be the victims of wrongful termination. Or they may need help understanding and evaluating a proposed severance agreement. Helen can help in all of these instances.
♦ Individuals considering filing for bankruptcy protection. Bankruptcy is an option for many individuals, yet most bankruptcy attorneys assume that a client has decided to file for bankruptcy when they first consult with an attorney. Helen prefers to walk clients through the bankruptcy process, carefully explaining short and long term benefits and risks, and doing what makes sense for them.
♦ Business advice and disputes. Helen has years of experience in commercial litigation and pre-litigation counseling, including contract claims, employment issues, litigation avoidance, arbitration, mediation, and construction disputes. She has provided advice to Fortune 100 companies as well as small locally owned businesses and non-profits.
♦ Wills and related documents. Many clients do not need complex estate planning documents. Helen focuses on preparing wills, durable powers of attorney and health care directives for individuals and families who have relatively small estates or who have clear and simple plans for the distribution of their assetsand to provide these important documents at an affordable cost.
