Driven, prepared, and expert in overcoming obstacles, Annie loves to conquer high-stakes employment challenges.
As a trial lawyer, trusted counselor, and advocate, Annie finds creative solutions - whether that means tackling challenging issues with current employees, resolving a matter pre-litigation, or winning decisively at trial. Having amassed significant courtroom and trial experience, she knows how to deliver the best results for her client. For example, Annie was a key member (and the only associate) of a team which secured a complete defense verdict for a Fortune 500 retail employer in a religious discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination case.
Annie also has expertise in gig economy and independent contractor classification issues, workplace best practices and policies, defending companies in government audits including unemployment insurance audits, investigating internal employee complaints, and counseling on issues throughout the entire employee life cycle.
When she is not in her office in Menlo Park, Annie chases after her two dogs Clifford and Jude.
