He has personally assisted hundreds of companies in preventing or minimizing financial damage caused by employee lawsuits, OSHA investigations, Wage and Hour Division audits, and more.
Outside of work, Ian is a father, an avid reader, and volunteers at his church and his children’s school, as well as playing any video, board, or card game he can get his hands on.
