Employment Litigation Law Firm

The economy is struggling and businesses are under increasing pressure to reduce costs. Unfortunately, many employers are too quick to make decisions about reducing payroll. To improve their bottom line, they often violate the rights of employees. Litigation for wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment (until good workers quit) are increasing throughout Northern California.

Arata, Swingle, Van Egmond & Goodwin is an employment litigation law firm that have many combined years of experience protecting the rights of employees who face violations of their employment rights. The hard, cold truth is that employers have laws protecting their right to terminate an employee for almost any reason in California. It is natural for people to feel they were wrongfully terminated after being fired. Many law firms will take every wrongful termination or discrimination employment lawsuit that walks in their door. Our firm is selective about the employment litigation cases we handle. We don’t make promises about results. We do promise, however, to offer the most vigorous, intelligent and effective legal representation available in the region.

Intelligent, Effective Negotiators

What many employment law firms don’t tell you is that a large majority of employment litigation cases settle out of court. And that’s a good thing for all sides. Our lawyers are skilled, experienced negotiators who aren’t afraid to go toe-to-toe with insurance defense lawyers of the largest corporations in California.

We want an opportunity to talk to you about your circumstances. We will provide a consultation to review your case and give you an honest appraisal of your situation. The truth is, you may not always like what we have to say, but we will encourage you to talk to other law firms. If you have a legitimate case, and you decide we are the right law firm for you, we promise that you will have the most effective, aggressive lawyers possible fighting for every dollar of compensation you are entitled to.

“Our experience in all areas of employment litigation gives us an advantage at the negotiating table. We know what strategies employers use to protect themselves. Case preparation is key to a successful, negotiated settlement. We come to the case prepared and ready to fight to protect your rights in the workplace.” Lawyer Bradley J. Swingle
