Michelle Hoogendam Cash has over 22 years of experience in employment and labor matters.  Michelle's background is unique -- she has represented management while working for a major law firm and also while working in several corporate legal departments and as a member of human resources management.  She also has experience working in a law firm that primarily represents individuals. 

This varied experience allows Michelle to view employment conflicts from a practical, as well as a legal, perspective.  Her experience as a plaintiff's lawyer helps her understand claims from the perspective of the employee, while her experience as a defense litigator with an outside firm gives her an understanding of the issues on that side of the docket.  Michelle's experience in corporate legal departments, however, gives her the ability to understand the pressures faced by corporate clients directly, including pressures of litigation budgets, as well as the intangible issues of morale and support for management decisions.  These experiences allow Michelle to present a nuanced approach to resolving employment law disputes that is unique and valuable.
