The Dignity of Work

Love work, loath mastery over others, and avoid intimacy with the government.” Ethics of the Fathers, 1:10.

The Maryland Bar admitted me in 1994. Over the last 25+ years, I have seen class warfare, and my class – front-row educated “knowledge workers”, protected by credential barriers and supplied with cheap labor (on the books or off) for its needs and wants – has been winning. What I do, what I am proud to do, is to level a very small part of the playing field.

My practice is not about helping corporate America accomplish its managers; stockholders’ or consultants’ goals. Other lawyers do that work. I represent real people – clients who have (or need) toothbrushes and don’t have boards of directors. I represent people who work – usually working employees, occasionally the working owners of businesses that feed their families.

My law practice is pro-worker, pro-union, pro-labor.

I have an Ivy League degree, but don’t get fooled: the Ivy League doesn’t have me.
