Gaye is a seasoned litigator with two decades of experience and expertise in employment and labor law. Her extensive experience includes representing management in a broad range of employment matters in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies and arbitrators. Gaye has been recognized for her expertise by being selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers in America in the area of Employment Law every year since 2013.
She has successfully litigated a panoply of employment law matters including claims asserted under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Florida Civil Rights Act, and the Florida Private Whistleblower Act, as well as employment-related contract disputes including breaches of employment agreements and violations of restrictive covenants and employment-related tort claims such as defamation, tortious interference, and invasion of privacy.
Gaye started her career in law as a legal secretary for a highly-regarded Miami firm. She put herself through law school becoming an editor of the U. Miami Law Review. After passing the Florida Bar, she returned to that same law firm - as an attorney. Employment matters aside, Gaye has first and second-chaired dozens of complex commercial cases in state and federal court all over the country. In the courtroom, she is unflappable and is renowned for her common sense approach to argument and examining witnesses. A decade ago, Mike and Gaye tried several commercial cases together (all wins). Later, Gaye became a partner at Littler, the largest employment firm in the nation.
In 2018, Gaye finally returned home to her old team. We could not be happier to have her back on our side.
