About this office:

California employers face a bewildering array of statutes, regulations and enforcement agencies. Lawsuits cost thousands just to defend, and millions if the employee wins. Our law firm has the experience and expertise to help employers navigate the tricky shoals created by the legal requirements. We defend lawsuits, train employees, supervisors and managers on their legal responsibilities, audit human resource policies and documentation for compliance with legal requirements and best practices, and prepare employee handbooks to help employers define their relationships with their employees.

Case Experience and History

We have tried 30 employment law cases to United States District Court and California Superior Court Juries. Those cases involved claims of discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, failure to accommodate and retaliation.

We obtained a defense verdict in a discrimination case by two Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs and then persuaded the trial judge to award our client its attorneys fees and costs because the claims were frivolous. Wade v. County of Los Angeles, Case No. BC394379 (L.A. Superior Court).

We have obtained appellate reversals of adverse results in the trial court through careful attention to preserving the issues for review, and cogent legal arguments.

When the LA Superior Court refused to grant summary judgment against an employee's claim that a reduction in force based on economic issues was really a pretext for retaliation, we persuaded the Court of Appeal to grant a peremptory writ of mandate directing the trial court to reverse itself and grant judgment for our client. LAUSD v. Superior Court, Case No. B239159 (Cal. Second Dist. Ct. App.).

We have provided over 50 training sessions on employment law issues, including discrimination and wrongful termination, sexual harassment, workplace policies, disciplinary procedures, wage and hour issues and leave of absence (FMLA) issues.

We provide frequent nationwide teleconferences on Fair Labor Standards Act issues for Lorman Education Services.
