Professional Background

Gretchen began her legal career in the Labor Relations Department of the City of Pittsburgh. She demonstrated early on how to blend practical know-how with sound legal advice. Gretchen focuses her practice on representing counties, municipalities, authorities, school districts and regional police departments in labor and employment matters. She guides employers through the variety of laws and regulations that impact public sector employment. From collective bargaining through the intricacies of the ADA interactive process, Gretchen counsels clients to be patient, strategic and decisive in achieving their goals. There has been no personnel matter too complex or taxing for Gretchen to negotiate.

On a Personal Note...

Gretchen’s negotiation skills come in handy while away from work. Pitting themselves against each other, Gretchen battles her way through complex negotiations involving her children. Frequent areas of disagreement arise regarding who had the last turn picking a movie, who ate the last cookie and who should be able to stay up late.

While not at work or managing sibling disputes, Gretchen volunteers her time working as a board member for a non-profit early education center located in Pittsburgh. Currently, she serves in the capacity as Vice-President of the Board of Directors. In a less formal role, Gretchen co-edits a school-wide monthly newsletter for her son’s elementary school. She enjoys running, traveling and hanging out with her husband.
