Joshua M. Arnold has devoted his legal career to representing a diverse array of employees, from personal trainers to personnel managers, valets to veterinarians, and cashiers to CEOs who were unlawfully subject to employment discrimination, harassment, whistleblower retaliation, and wrongful termination.
