We are trial attorneys and counselors.
At Villarreal Hutner, we help employers avoid litigation by providing practical advice on virtually every issue that arises in the employment relationship. We regularly counsel employers on a variety of issues, including wage and hour issues, leaves of absence, accommodation of disabilities, performance management, alleged discrimination and harassment, employee complaints, pre-employment inquiries, background checks, non-compete agreements, protection of confidential information, employee raiding, workplace investigations, disciplinary matters and terminations.
When a dispute arises our clients trust us to take an effective, cost-efficient approach to litigation. To that end, we provide an early, honest assessment of each matter. This enables our clients to determine whether the matter is appropriate for quick resolution, ripe for dispositive motion, or if it is a matter that simply must be litigated. When a case needs to be litigated, clients trust us to put together the team that makes the most sense for the matter at hand.
At Villarreal Hutner, we have a solid record of winning motions for summary judgment and defending cases at trial, and even recovering attorneys' fees for our clients. We work hard to ensure the best possible results for our clients. We know that our clients depend on us to protect their interests and we earn our clients' trust daily by being responsive to our clients' needs while always keeping our eye on their bottom line.
Villarreal Hutner has been repeatedly listed as Super Lawyers, is a member of the National Association of Minority & Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF), and a certified MWBE. Still, our proudest accolade is having been awarded the California Minority Counsel Program's prestigious Client Service Award.
