Also, Eugene Lee is not any of the things your attorney shouldn't be.
He is exactly the attorney you need for your case. Trust this man to represent you in your labor law case, I have 100% confidence - yes - 100%, in Gene's abilities.
This was my first time to be in a situation where I genuinely needed to initiate a lawsuit, and i was as uninformed as I was desperate. I had been left near desolate and shocked when I was teeminated from my job and found that my employer had misclassified me, rendering me broke and ineligible for unemployment insurance. Initially I accepted an offer from another law firm who sought me out after petitioning a few others and being rejected- great! I thought, these guys must really believe in my case!
But after 3 months, 4 in-house attorney changes and a 90% reduction in expected award, I was about to give up.
Then my fiance' sourced Gene Lee at California Labor Law and after a brief phone chat with Gene I decided to take my case with them.
From that first phone call, Gene walked me through changing my legal representation, which can be very intimidating, to filing my complaints through the proper channels until the letter of demand-- and Gene SHOWED me, not told but showed me how valuable a good, experienced and client sensitive attorney is. Gene accomplished more in one week than the previous "labor group" had in the three months they had my case!
Because of his courtroom in-trial experience, he was able to navigate me through the entire process of organizing my evidence and filing the correct forms so smoothly and efficiently, and with his attention to the details of my case, he encouraged a restored belief and confidence in myself and my case. He was supportive, available and realistic through out the process, and because of that professionalism I believe, we were granted a conference with the deputy commissioner of the office of labor within a couple months of submitting, and with Gene's guidance and experiential knowledge, I was able to settle at a satisfactory amount with my former employer that day!
Gene took an active and available role all the way to the submitting my award to me, personally, ensuring that the funds were available for a critical deadline I was facing. California Labor Law and Gene Lee are worth more than than the attorney's fees, what he delivered in performance, attentiveness and professionalism can't be bought.
I am a real person who faced an overwhelming task in correcting wrongs done to me by an employer. If you have need of a labor attorney for the State of California, start here. You wont look any further.
