Employment Law for The People

The touchstones of our practice are integrity and experience. We practice employment law exclusively on behalf of wrongfully treated employees. We never represent the employer. We are one of a very few firms to do so. Most firms dabble in employment law (on behalf of employees and employers) while practicing personal injury law and/or business law. In our judgment this is not a recipe for success. We are passionate about employee rights. Our job is to vindicate you; to right the wrong that has been done, and to make you whole again. Whatever the wrong to you may have been ( wrongful termination, non payment of overtime/ break time, age or gender discrimination, leave violation, retaliation, failure to accommodate, sexual harassment, etc.) we have the knowledge, experience, and proven ability to maximize your recovery. Employment law is complex; it is filled with pitfalls for the inexperienced and the unwary. For example, the differences between the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) are so great that one state Agency has published a matrix illustrating the differences that is 12 pages long. We will guide you through this maze (you won’t even know it‘s there) and resolve your case either through settlement or, in rare cases, trial. Although few cases actually go to trial, it is essential that your counsel have trial experience so that your claim is taken seriously at the negotiating table. We have such experience, having successfully litigated numerous trials and recovering substantial verdicts for our clients. Corporations and business associations spend literally billions of dollars to limit employee rights and reduce the recoveries available to a wronged employee.

Simply put: your best hope for a recovery is to retain high quality, experienced counsel who are specialists in the field of employment law and who know how to maximize the value your case. We are such counsel. While we do not guarantee success, you may be assured that no effort will be spared to obtain the best possible recovery for you.
