Maybe. Employment laws in California are complex and it’s important to have an experienced employment attorney review your individual case. Many factors may affect whether or not you have a case, and more importantly, whether or not it’s in your best interest to pursue it.  After you fill out our free case evaluation form or call us, our team of attorneys will review your information to see if we can help. There is no cost or obligation to you to have us review your case. We don’t want to waste your time and only take cases we think we can help you with. Whether or not we can help, we’ll let you know your options. 

No. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple letter to your employer. We will go over all your options with you to determine the best course of action for each individual situation. If a long-drawn out legal process isn’t in your best interest, we’ll let you know upfront.

0 unless we recover compensation for you. We take cases on a contingency basis, which means you don’t pay any upfront fees or costs. If we negotiate a settlement from your employer or win your case in court, our fee comes out of the recovery from the employer. If we didn’t win your case, you owe absolutely nothing. 

We may still be able to help guide you through your options, even if you still work for your employer. Call us or fill out our free case evaluation form.

In California, it is illegal for an employer to retaliate against current or former employees for filing a lawsuit or complaint against them. This means the employer cannot legally terminate, demote, harass or discriminate against you for hiring an attorney to write a demand letter, filing a complaint in court, or complaining about workplace violations. If you were retaliated against, we can help fight for your rights and recover the compensation you deserve.

As long as you worked for a California employer, we can help. The majority of our clients never need to come into our office in person. We consult most of our clients over the phone, email, and via video conference call. Of course, if you’d like to meet us in person, you’re welcome to stop by!
