Employment Law Attorney Serving Southern California

Business or individual, we’re looking out for your best interests.

When an employee comes to us after experiencing wrongful termination, sexual harassment, discrimination, or another injustice, we give them the tools, opportunity, and support to stand up and say, “This isn’t alright.” For our employer clients, we work to find a resolution that allows them to put the complaint behind them and build a healthier work environment moving forward.

The raven represents progress, and that's what we're all about.

Our logo, the raven, has a very specific meaning to our firm and our clients. These birds are used throughout Celtic mythology as a symbol for life's unavoidable crises and generally appear to foreshadow impending war. Simultaneously, though, we like to associate the raven with taking these crises as they come, working past them, learning from them, and ultimately coming out better for the experience.

Our approach, then, centers on doing whatever it takes to help our client 1) resolve their legal concern, 2) communicate meaningfully with the other side, and 3) walk away from the dispute with a fresh perspective and a focus on their next steps forward.

In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.

Looking to improve your business?

We offer a variety of additional services that can help you improve your business today and avoid legal trouble down the road.

General Legal Advisement

In the spirit of making California a better place for business, we make it easy for local employers to get legal counsel without having to break the bank or jump through hoops. Rather, they can hire us on a no-fee retainer basis. For instance, if you own or run a small business, you may want legal advisement but not actually need an attorney right now. We’ve got you covered. To get the counsel you seek, simply reach out to our firm. We will open a miscellaneous business file for you, which provides you with two free hours of business training each year. And of course, should you need actual legal representation, you know you can turn to us.

Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

In California, employers are required to hold sexual harassment prevention training for their employees at least once every two years. Our lead attorney, Charles, is qualified to deliver this training and does so at a very reasonable price.

Mediation Services

Although our primary focus is employment disputes and litigation, we also mediate cases as needed. If you are involved in a lawsuit and looking to cooperatively negotiate terms with the other side, we would be more than happy to guide you through that process.
