Workplace discrimination cases are high-stakes matters that require the expertise of our employment law team. For some employers, just one of these claims can threaten the survival of their business. In our state, employers now face enhanced damages under California employment legislation.
However, no two workplace discrimination cases are alike. At Peterson Watts Law Group, LLP, we understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach regarding legal representation. Our law firm conducts for you a thorough and diligent investigation and analysis of these matters to determine the smartest path forward, one designed to dispose of the claim as expediently as possible.
Types Of Workplace Discrimination
Allegations of workplace discrimination come in many forms, including:
- Age discrimination
- Race and ethnicity issues
- Sexual orientation
- Marital status
- Religious affiliation and belief
- Political leanings
We at Peterson Watts Law Group, LLP, have represented individuals and business entities on both sides of these disputes. As such, we understand the full nature of what is required to prosecute or defend such claims in a court of law and administrative settings.
The lawyers at our firm have 65 years of collective legal and litigation experience. Besides admission to California’s district and appellate courts, our attorneys have been admitted to the following federal courts:
- U.S. Court of Appeals 9th Circuit
- U.S. District Court Central District of California
- U.S. District Court Eastern District of California
- U.S. District Court Northern District of California
- U.S. District Court Southern District of California
They understand the law and keep themselves updated on all employment law trends. For example, we are seeing increasing percentages of these cases involving specifically race, gender and age.
Our attorneys understand that it is the unique facts of the case that make for a successful or unsuccessful claim. Our firm works with an expansive team of “best in class” forensic experts and investigators to examine the individual facts and ensure that no stone is left unturned. We make sure that we are not just ready for trial, but also poised to avoid trial where possible.
We use a network of investigators and employment experts to determine precisely whether a claim exists. As we have tried so many of these cases before, we also can assess the chances of success. We provide straightforward advice and guidance on the best way to approach these cases.
