Wage and Hour Claims
If you have been fired from your job, you might have a case against your former employer for wrongful termination even if you were an "at will" employee. Many grounds for termination are against the law if they violate public policies against discrimination on the basis of race, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, and other grounds. If you were improperly classified as a management employee, you might have claims against your employer for unpaid overtime or breaks.

Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist Claims
Pain and Suffering
If you have been injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, or other vehicle collision, you may be entitled to recover compensation from the responsible party or its insurance company. If the other party does not have insurance coverage, it may be possible for you to recover from your own insurance company under the uninsured or underinsured provisions of your car insurance policy. Most claims are settled out of court and can include compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages or other income, and other losses.

Record Clearance (Expungement)
If you are charged in a criminal case, know your rights. Talk to a lawyer as soon as possible before you go to court, even for a first offense. You have a right to an attorney even if you cannot afford one. Don't go to court alone or plead guilty without legal advice. A criminal conviction can cause employment, immigration, or professional license problems. With the right legal help, it might be possible to get your case reduced to a lower charge or even dismissed. Most first offenses are resolved with a fine payment, community service, or weekend work time without jail. If you are charged with petty theft (shoplifting), you might be eligible for a diversion program that allows you to take a class and have your case dismissed. If you are charged with DUI, you must contact the DMV within ten days if you want to request a hearing to try to prevent the suspension of your license. Old convictions can be cleared (expunged) from your record if you have paid your fine, are no longer on probation, and have completed the other requirements of your case. Talk to a lawyer before you make any decisions or miss any deadlines.
Call, Text, or Email
I will handle your case personally from beginning to end, not an associate or assistant. Reasonable attorney fees. Credit cards, PayPal, and Apple Pay accepted. Most personal injury and employment cases are on a contingency fee (percentage) basis paid out of money recovered from the party (or insurance company) on the other side of your case.
