We represent terminated employees who are denied EDD unemployment insurance benefits under California Unemployment Insurance Code Section 1256.


After submitting your EDD appeal form, you will receive a Notice of Hearing from the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board (CUIAB).


Employees who are denied benefits under code section 1256 should contact our unemployment attorney for a free consultation. 


Your EDD appeal hearing will be conducted by an Administrative Law Judge who will question you about your prior work separation.  Your former employer will also be permitted to ask you questions.


Our unemployment attorney has over ten years of experience and tremendous results representing employees from all over California in the unemployment appeal process.  


We recommend that you contact us prior to submitting your unemployment appeal form so we can walk you through the appropriate steps.  Our EDD appeal attorney will sepak with you about the process and explain how our appeal service works.


Wrongful Termination Attorney in California


If you were terminated, we will analyze the facts of your separation to determine whether you may have a case against your former employer for wrongful termination in California. Wrongful termination cases are taken on a contingency basis which means you don't pay any legal fees until your case is resolved.

  • Notify us of any complaints you submitted to your employer prior to your termination.  Tell us if you complained about treatment related to age, gender, race or ethnic background, or sexual orientation. 
  • Consider whether you had a disability or medical condition which required a medical leave or workplace accommodations that were not being provided by your employer.
  • Tell us if you were terminated after filing a workers' compensation claim or if your disability or medical condition was mentioned by your employer at the time of termination.
  • Let us know if you were fired after complaining about any illegal activity in the workplace.

Wage & Hour Violations


If you were being paid hourly, it is important to let us know if you were not being properly compensated.  Think about whether your employer was providing you with two rest breaks throughout the day as well as a thirty minute uninterrupted meal period. 


Notify our employment attorney if you were retaliated against after bringing these concerns to your employers' attention.    


We help employees who worked more than eight hours or twelve hours in a day but were not paid at the appropriate rate.  


If you are currently employed but are experiencing wage and hour violations, you can still proceed with a case against your current employer.  


Human Resources Management


Our office provides employers with dedicated services for human resources management and employee relations matters.


Your human resources representatives should not be making important decisions in the workplace without seeking the advice of an employment attorney.


We provide as-needed consulting services which means that your company is free to utilize us as much as you want.  There is no obligation or set minimum requirement with billing.


Using our services will help alleviate the stress that you and your management team experience when making employment decisions.
