I joined Getman, Sweeney & Dunn because I firmly believe that every person deserves the respect and dignity of receiving a fair wage. Our team advocates for people who dedicate their time and energy to employers who too often feel entitled to take advantage of them. The idea of going up against a powerful company can be daunting, but our mission is to make sure that all workers have the right to make their voices heard. I am honored to be a part of this team, and to advocate for fair labor practices on behalf of our clients and the community as a whole.
