We are dedicated and aggressive advocates for victims of physical injuries and workplace harassment, discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination.  We work to secure the exceptional results our clients expect and deserve when they have unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, unpaid expenses, or losses of work related benefits.

As a highly respected Bay Area employment law attorney, Spencer C. Young and his staff fight on behalf of employees who have been wrongfully terminated, sexually harassed, or discriminated against due to age, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, and medical conditions, e.g. pregnancy.  We can also assist you and your family by negotiating work conditions so that formal legal proceedings are not needed.  Additionally, our mainly plaintiff-side client base provides us with keen insight for select employers who want to minimize their exposure to employment law claims.

Victims of negligence and/or intentional harm in the Berkeley, Oakland, Hayward and San Francisco areas will find us capable personal injury lawyers who fight vigorously on our clients' behalf.  Some of our clients have been injured in car, truck, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents. Our firm also provides legal guidance and representation for victims of elder abuse, defective products, domestic violence, and public transportation accidents or aviation crashes.

Contact the Law Offices of Spencer C. Young today if you have any employment law, personal injury or business litigation questions.  We offer free consultations daily by phone and in person at our offices in downtown Oakland. Thank you.
