Tiffany practices in all areas of labor and employment law, focusing on day-to-day preventative counseling and employment litigation. Her experience includes counseling and defending employers and managers on a broad spectrum of issues, including discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Family Medical and Leave Act (FMLA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Title VII and state-law counterparts, workplace safety, and wage and hour issues under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Prior to joining Scholten Fant, Tiffany worked at a large regional law firm, where she represented public and private sector employers in a wide variety of industries, including general contracting, manufacturing, roofing, lumber, government and education.
After graduating from West Virginia Wesleyan College magna cum laude, Tiffany earned her law degree from West Virginia University College of Law, where she was the recipient of several CALI Awards (awards given to the highest scoring student in each class), research assistant to the Dean, and President of the Real Estate Law Society. After law school, she clerked for the Honorable David R. Janes, Chief Judge of the 16th Judicial Circuit, in Marion County, West Virginia, where she gained invaluable insight to courtroom procedures before entering private practice.
Tiffany lives in Spring Lake with her husband Vance—a West Michigan native, and their two sons. In her spare time, she enjoys biking, boating and spending time with family.
