Whatever the “American Dream” means to you, receiving fair pay for your work is a fundamental element of that dream. I am proud to help workers throughout the country fight for the wages they deserve and hold employers who try to deny them accountable. It is always my goal to take action when I see injustice occurring. As an attorney at Getman, Sweeney & Dunn I have the privilege to do my part in fighting injustice daily by representing workers that are taken advantage of by the employers they benefit.
