Oakland Employment Law Defense Attorneys

San Francisco Lawyers

At the California law firm of Patton Wolan Carlise LLP, we defend employers against many types of lawsuits including all types of employment suits, wage and hour, whistle blower claims, tort, contract and fraud claims.

The experience offered by our employer defense attorneys has led to us being retained by clients that range from major employers in Oakland and throughout the Bay Area to small businesses, including locally owned cafes and auto shops. We have represented cities and counties, as well as a wide range of public agencies. We have worked for universities, financial and insurance companies, hospitals and health care organizations of all types.

Our employment law defense work includes defense against all types of discrimination, wrongful termination, whistle blower, wage and hour, and sexual harassment claims. When difficult and controversial cases arise, our clients trust PWC to defend their interests. We also practice preventive employment law by offering advice on employment issues before they become a problem, offering in service presentations, by preparing and reviewing handbooks, and planning discipline and termination and drafting letters, severance and settlement agreements.

We also provide alternative dispute resolution services.

Experienced, Efficient and Cost-Effective

The personal attention we provide our clients is prompt, responsive and efficient. We tailor our representation to the needs of our client on the specific matter. Our experience and performance is more like that of a large firm. We have trial experience from early settlement, dispositive motion, mediation/arbitration to jury trial and appeal, if necessary. Going toe-to-toe with a major opponent is something we will not hesitate to do.

The key is that we get to know our clients and their interests. We customize a solution based on the employer's needs. We understand the importance of a solution that is efficient and cost-effective.The advantages of being represented by a small firm of experienced, efficient lawyers is that you will not be represented by inexperienced lawyers learning new subject matters at your expense.
