Are you the victim of a disability violation at work?

Seeking Compensation in Orange County

Seeking Compensation for a Violation of Your Rights

Employers can be careful about cloaking a firing or failure to advance a disabled person with other reasons, and may defend against the case. The more evidence we have to support your case, the better chance we will have at recovering damages for the wrong that was done to you. Save any emails that may support your case, voice mail messages, and log any comments or other details that may be relevant. We are zealous in our advocacy for disabled people who are suffering any type of discriminatory actions in the workplace. These are civil rights issues, and you are protected under the law. We hold those who violate the law accountable for what they have done.
