Fighting For The Rights Of Employees

Employers in California must follow a host of state and federal employment laws. These laws provide many protections to employees. Unfortunately, many employers fail to follow these laws. When this happens, working men and women can face serious, far reaching problems.

If you believe your employer has violated your employee rights, contact our firm immediately. We can guide you through the steps to take to protect your rights. Based in Oakland, our law firm represents employees throughout Northern California. We offer appointments in major cities throughout the region.

In the early stages of a case, many of our clients are concerned about the costs of our representation. We offer free consultations and in appropriate cases, contingency fee arrangements are available.

At Your Side From The Start Of Your Case Until The Finish

Our law firm represents people in the full range of employment matters, including:

  • Discrimination
  • Sexual harassment
  • Retaliation
  • Wrongful termination
  • Wage and hour claims
  • Employment-related defamation

You will work closely with our attorney, Valerie O'Dell. With over 30 years of experience, she understands the legal issues and the practical issues in your case. For instance, you may be facing discrimination or sexual harassment in your workplace and are unsure whether you should complain or resign. Or you may have been fired from your job and want to know if reinstatement is an option. In every situation, Valerie O'Dell will listen closely to you and carefully advise you as to your right and options.

If you have a claim for damages, she will fully investigate and analyze the facts in order to prepare a strong case against your employer, whether in court or in mediation. In every case, we work hard to protect your rights and help you recover all available damages under the law. While many of our cases settle prior to trial, we will not recommend a settlement unless it is in your best interests. Our client-centered, aggressive approach has led to many positive outcomes for the people we serve.
