Workplace Investigations

Prompt | Thorough | Impartial

Complaints of harassment, discrimination and other sensitive and/or serious matters should be investigated in a prompt, thorough and unbiased manner. As an attorney with extensive experience in Human Resources I understand that minimizing disruption to your workplace is also important. Because I don't have the overhead costs of a large firm, I am able to provide expertise at a reasonable rate. To discuss your situation, call me for a no-cost initial consultation (971) 291-7672.
