Employment Law
 

Mr. Sullivan handles employment matters on behalf of both employees and employers and is experienced in state and federal courts and administrative agencies.

 

For employees, most cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means that the employee-client will pay no attorney's fees, unless there is a favorable outcome. If you have issues regarding wage and hour violations, missed break/meal periods, wrongful termination, age discrimination or sexual harassment claims, our lawyers have the experience to handle your matter. Mr. Sullivan also represents federal and state agency employees in administrative disciplinary proceedings.

 

Mr. Sullivan also provides advice to employers regarding employment law and management issues, including disciplinary and termination decisions, reductions in force, hiring, and compliance with both federal and California laws. Moreover, our firm can assist your business with drafting employee handbooks, employment contracts, offer letters and separation agreements. Our objective is to keep our business clients from being sued. If you are sued, however, we have a broad background in the defense of employment-related claims.
