Brittney has extensive experience in employment law. Brittney was an employment law paralegal for several years, which gave the opportunity to handle employment cases from the initiation of the case all the way through trial. Brittney was actively involved in numerous employment discrimination trials in both state and federal court. During law school, Brittney interned in the litigation section of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, where she got an inside look at the operations and processes at the EEOC.
