Christine M. Adams is an experienced and aggressive employment rights attorney. She represents employees along California’s Central Coast who have been harassed or discriminated against at work because of a disability, pregnancy, their gender, marital status, race or ethnicity, or who have been retaliated against or wrongfully terminated. She also represents employees who have been denied meal and rest breaks or who have not been paid overtime, lost vacation earned as a result of a “use it or lose it” vacation time policy, or where an employer breaches the terms of an employment contract.
Ms. Adams also pursues the vindication of “whistleblower” claims for employees who have been retaliated against for objecting to unlawful conduct in the workplace, refusing to do something illegal or assisting others who have complained about unlawful conduct.
Ms. Adams obtained her Juris Doctorate from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, where she served as the Managing Editor of its Law Review. She is nationally published and admitted to practice before all state and federal courts in California. She is a member of the State Bar of California, the Santa Barbara County Bar Association, and the California Employment Lawyers Association. She proudly serves employees in Santa Barbara, Ventura, Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Santa Maria, Paso Robles, Arroyo Grande, Pismo, and San Luis Obispo.
Ms. Adams has advised and represented clients in all aspects and stages of employment disputes, including pre-complaint, informal negotiations, administrative hearings and jury trials. Her former clients will gladly speak to you about how they felt being represented by a caring, yet aggressive attorney.
Employment law is complex and requires an attorney who understands that law and who will aggressively pursue your rights while providing you with individualized service and compassion.
