She has substantial experience in building envelope, water infiltration and mold-related claims, having counseled clients with respect to hundreds of such matters. Ms. Radmacher has defended all types of cases including mass actions and class action claims, defending residential homebuilders, commercial contractors, and design professionals.
As part of her employment practice, Ms. Radmacher has handled sensitive discrimination, harassment, and assault claims for her clients, including complex franchise/corporations issues. Ms. Radmacher frequently litigates disputed claims under the ADA, Title VII, FDCPA, as well as state and local laws, including California’s Proposition 65.

Ms. Radmacher also has expertise in developing risk-management protocols for her clients in both the construction, regulatory, and employment areas.
In her over 19 years of practice, Ms. Radmacher has secured multiple victories for her clients early in the litigation through aggressive law and motion practice, effective negotiation, and early dispute resolution techniques. Due to her experience as a private and court-appointed mediator, Ms. Radmacher is an excellent negotiator and is sought out to resolve the most difficult and complex matters.
