Firm Overview

Our focus is plaintiff-side employment, civil rights and personal injury cases. We protect individual rights through social justice-minded litigation. Our staff is dedicated to providing California citizens with affordable legal representation that creates positive social change for local communities. We listen, learn, lead and win.

Since 2006 we have represented thousands of individuals and businesses in California State Courts,Northern District Federal Court, the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing Commission, the Merit Systems Protection Board, the California Public Employees Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board.

We use our passion to stick up for what we believe. We believe that workers should be paid fairly for a hard day’s work. We believe workers should be able to thrive in a workplace free of discrimination, retaliation and harassment. We believe employers should not only comply with existing federal, state and local laws, but also use best practices to create productive, harmonious working environments that nurture communities and increase overall quality of life.

Has your employer failed to pay your wages and overtime? Have you not been reimbursed for work-related expenses despite continuous requests? Have you been wrongfully terminated based on discriminatory characteristics such as race, age, gender, disability, medical condition, or complaining about illegal activity? Are you thinking of blowing the whistle and afraid of retaliation? Have you been sexually harassed, sexually assaulted or received some adverse action based on gender, e.g. pregnancy status? We are your advocate in the workplace – any place – where individual rights matter.

Bad things happen to good people in places they wouldn’t expect. When that happens, we believe the bad actor and/or their insurance company needs to step up and compensate people for harm. We don’t let up when the going gets tough. We roll up our sleeves and fight for you to the end. We support you and your family because we believe it’s important to help ordinary people cope with extraordinary pressures.

Since filing lawsuits does not deter enough unfair treatment, we also assist small businesses with employment law compliance, drafting fair employment agreements, and general business matters, such as breach of contracts and debt collection.

If you or anyone you know wants aggressive advocacy and sound advice, for an affordable price, give us a call. We will sit down with you, your co-workers, employees, your family, and other community members and provide a free consultation to let you know what your options are. We know the law is daunting. Let us support you so you can live your life, not your law suit. Thank you for reading this far. Please check our other pages to find out more information, or call us anytime: (510) 645-1585.

Great response time! Very thorough! Knows his stuff! My experience was first rate and would recommend Mr. Young because he took the time to address my concerns, provide clear examples, and most importantly, he listened. Ben A.
Mr Young is a brilliant young man with an astounding ability to sort through the dross of a situation, and get a handle on the true issues. And with all that having been said, he communicates with compassion, making sure you understand your options. I recommend him unreservedly. Robert W.
Super responsive and knowledgeable - Spencer not only responded to my inquiry over the weekend but called me immediately on Monday and took time to explain my legal options even though the case wasn't a good fit for his firm. Quincy S.
