Our practice, which spans both state and federal courts, is focused on prosecuting and defending socially just actions on behalf of individuals, small businesses, and non-profit organizations in a variety of substantive areas. These include, among others: employment disputes involving discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, and/or wage and hour claims; violations of consumer protection laws; business disputes; corporate governance disputes; and personal injury matters.
Our firm is also well-versed in litigating and trying class actions, in particular, employment and consumer class actions. Class actions allow the claims of similarly-situated individuals—for example, employees who have been misclassified as exempt, or consumers subjected to fraudulent misrepresentations about a product or service—to be aggregated into one action. Utilizing the class action form is often an effective means to obtain relief for injuries inflicted upon a large group of individuals, each of whom would otherwise not bring individual claims due to the costly nature of litigation.
We are not afraid to take on a difficult case as long as the issue is right.
Our firm prides itself on achieving results in an efficient and responsible manner. Whether it is a flat fee, an hourly fee, a contingency fee, or a hybrid of these billing options, we are willing to work with you and your budget.
We accept a limited number of engagements at any time. By limiting the number of engagements we accept, we are able to ensure that our clients enjoy the access, responsiveness, and service consistent with the highest standards of the legal profession. We take pride in the fact that our livelihood is a profession. We are counselors, advocates, and officers of the court. We have chosen our profession because we believe we have a lifelong responsibility to serve the diverse communities we live in. We volunteer our time at clinics throughout the Bay Area, including those hosted by El Centro Legal de la Raza, the Bar Association of San Francisco's Volunteer Legal Services Program, the Legal Aid Society – Employment Law Center, the Korean American Bar Association of Northern California, and the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area.
