Headshot One (Cropped.Compressed).jpg.JP

I obtained my bachelor's and master's degrees from Stanford University and my law degree from Columbia Law School. My work experience includes working as a litigation attorney at large international law firms in New York City and Silicon Valley and as an in-house attorney handling employment law matters. But I developed a passion for representing employees during my career, and I started Finley Employment Law so that I could focus exclusively on doing what I enjoy doing most: representing employees in employment law disputes.

I have represented clients in all types of employment law disputes, including discrimination, harassment, retaliation, leave of absence violations, wage and hour violations, and contract review and negotiation. I have represented clients in both the pre-litigation and litigation context, and my most satisfying moments are when I obtain favorable results for my clients efficiently.

Clients enjoy working with me because I am responsive, diligent, and detail-oriented.  I believe that the road toward aggressive advocacy begins with a mastery of all the details of your case and the relevant law, especially because in employment law matters, one detail can oftentimes make a weak case into a strong one.

How we Can Help

At Finley Employment Law, we recognize that for many of you, you are visiting this website because you find yourself in the unexpected position of having to contact an attorney. You believe that you have been treated unfairly and that your rights may have been violated at work - but you are also uncertain whether any of it amounts to a legal claim. 


Fortunately, in general, California's employment laws are more employee-protective than the laws of many other states. California's employment laws, however, are also very detailed, sometimes complex, and constantly changing. If you believe that you were wrongfully terminated or would like to speak with an attorney about any other potential employment law claim, call ((916) 612-0326) or email (contact@finleyemplaw.com).
