David represents both employees and employers in a variety of situations and legal settings. He has navigated the complex legal thicket surrounding medical and legal adult use cannabis inside and outside the workplace. With the increasing acceptance and legalization of medical marijuana and recreational use in New York and other states, there is an increasing amount of conflict and uncertainty between the rights of the employer, the rights of the employee, and the laws regarding marijuana, the First Amendment, and the right to be left alone.
David has deep experience successfully representing licensed professionals, police, firefighters, teachers and others in disciplinary hearings including those who tested positive for marijuana, prescribed or otherwise, who ran into a conflict between marijuana use and the laws and policies governing the workplace.
David also represents employees in more traditional workplace disputes such as discrimination based on race, gender and sexual orientation. He also helps and executives in transition negotiate favorable severance packages.
