Travis practices in the area of employment and labor. He has litigated cases involving enforcement of restrictive covenant agreements, including noncompete agreements, and employee wage and hour claims. He has also successfully defended employers against charges of employment discrimination, harassment, and wrongful termination claims filed with state and federal agencies, including the EEOC and the Arizona Attorney General’s Civil Rights Division. Travis assists employers and HR personnel by navigating them through the broad spectrum of federal and state employment laws to ensure compliance, drafting employment handbook policies, and by drafting and enforcing various employment agreements.

As a ninth-generation Arizonan, Travis was drawn to our firm’s 130-year-plus history in Arizona. He comes from a hard-working farming family in the Tucson area who first settled in Tubac in the 1770’s. Fluent in Spanish, he enjoys working with diverse clients and businesses. Travis is the firm’s Chief Diversity Officer strongly believing that prioritizing diversity among organizations makes such entities stronger, fosters new ideas and progress, and allows others to understand each other better and to appreciate differences. For many years, Travis has also worked closely with community and student-based nonprofit organizations, such as the Be A Leader Foundation.

In his free time, Travis enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, and coaching little league baseball. He has a passion for world travel, Major League Baseball, and music in which he is classically-trained in piano.
