You never want to be in a position where you need to hire a lawyer. Unfortunately, these situations are too common. Through no fault of your own, you may find yourself the victim of an accident, of discrimination, of sexual assault, elder abuse, of dangerous products, and more.

Los Angeles Law Firm Practice Areas
Our years of experience working with our clients have taught us that personal injuries can occur at any time, and often under circumstances beyond our control—and when they do happen, it is possible to suffer from both physical and emotional trauma.
There are many types of personal injury cases, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents, including cars, trucks, buses, bicycles, boats, and pedestrian accidents.
- Medical malpractice, including birth injuries, misdiagnoses, hospital injuries, and more.
- Wrongful death, where a loved one’s death was caused by someone else’s negligence.
- Dangerous products, such as defective auto parts, medical equipment, consumer products, and more.
- Other accidents, such as animal attacks, slip and fall incidents, and injuries on other premises.
While you should trust your employer to treat you fairly and with respect, it can be disconcerting that this is not always the case. If you are mistreated by your employer, you may be entitled to recover damages. We have handled many common employment law cases, such as:
- Discrimination and harassment, if your company, supervisor, or coworkers treat you differently or offer you fewer opportunities because of protected characteristics like age, race, orientation, gender, pregnancy or health status, disability, and more.
- Wage and hour violations, if any earned wages are being withheld, overtime is being denied to you as a non-exempt employee, or your employer is inaccurately counting the number of hours you worked.
- Whistleblower retaliation, if you are fired or punished because you reported your employer for illegal or unethical activity.
- Wrongful termination, if you are fired because of unlawful reasons.
Civil Rights Law
Discrimination can happen anywhere, not just in the workplace. If you feel that your civil rights have been violated because you have faced discrimination in any situation because of your race, gender, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, etc., then you are entitled to a Los Angeles law firm that will present to you your legal options and determine how to proceed with your claim.
Some examples of civil rights cases include:
- Housing discrimination, where you are discouraged or barred from renting or buying a home.
- Disability discrimination, where you are denied services or opportunities because of special needs.
- Police misconduct, where you are unlawfully detained, questioned, charged, profiled, or otherwise mistreated at the hands of law enforcement.
- General mistreatment based on one of the protected characteristics, such as harmful slurs or insults.
