About Me

Mr. Gavin is proud to be a managing partner of Foos Gavin Law Firm, P.C. He concentrates his practice in employment law, focusing on employment discrimination, harassment and retaliation. Mr. Gavin has a wealth of experience representing thousands of clients in claims of wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wage and hour disputes.

While Mr. Gavin represents mostly employees, he also handles the firm’s employment defense cases. This allows him to continually hone his practice by learning how to think about a case from the defense side. Such an outlook has enabled Mr. Gavin to achieve multiple six-figure awards for his clients.

In addition, Mr. Gavin regularly represents employees before the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board. Mr. Gavin’s clients have won more than 90% of the appeals that he has pursued for them. At a time when unemployment in California is so high, Mr. Gavin hopes to continue helping his fellow working-class citizens in this way.

Claims of wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, and retaliation require the attention of an attorney who can focus on the details of the case while never losing sight of the big picture for his clients. It is through this dedication, as well as a devotion to out-work and out-think his counterparts, that Mr. Gavin is able to consistently produce positive results for his employment law clients.
