Ace’s practice focuses on representing employers in individual plaintiff and class action wage and hour claims arising under the California Labor Code, Industrial Welfare Commission Orders, Fair Labor Standards Act, Private Attorneys General Act and the Business and Professions Code’s Unfair Competition law. He has litigated these types of matters in state and federal court involving employees in the public sector and private sector industries including manufacturing, banking and aviation.
Ace also has experience as a regulator. He served as a deputy labor commissioner with the State of California’s Division of Labor Standards Enforcement. This experience exposed him to the many challenges employers face with compliance in a wide range of industries from agriculture to construction to health care.
Prior to transitioning to employment defense and coming to MHS, Ace worked in the area of labor relations, handling unfair labor practice charges, grievances and arbitrations.
Ace incorporates this broad experience into his advice to clients so that they can make the best decisions for their short-term and long-term goals.
