Practice areas
  1. Sexual harassment
    35%
    In my experience, many people don't know if what they've been subjected to in the workplace legally constitutes sexual harassment. Most sexual harassment claims do not involve an express request of sex for job benefits, but a work environment filled with unwelcome comments, conduct, or language. I am an experienced and aggressive employment attorney. If you or someone you know believes they have been a victim of sexual harassment, contact me for a free confidential consultation.

Emanuel is an excellent lawyer and someone you can completely trust. He always let me know what was happening with my case, his strategy and how he thought the case would unfold. I recommend him to anyone.

Super Lawyer!!!
Emanuel is one of the best lawyers that I have ever meet. Emanuel and his team worked so hard and had a rebuttal for everything that the defense attorney had. Emanuel and his team did such a wonderful job that the defendant fired their attorney and went straight to settlement and made me whole again. I am very satisfied with Emanuel and his team and I would recommend anyone that has been treated unfairly by their employer to contact Emanuel and his team to see if they can help you.

Compassionate
I would strongly recommend Shirazi Law Firm to anyone of help in all aspects of employment law. Mr. Shirazi and Ms. Nazarian were highly responsive and highly effective at getting a good result for my case against a special government agency. Their attention to the smallest details is admirable. Mr. Shirazi and Ms. Nazarian were aggressive in the case yet compassionate towards me throughout the litigation. They are aware of how overwhelming a case can be and made the effort to contact me only when they had to. I was very fortunate to have found them.

Excellent Attorney
I cannot recommend Mr. Shirazi enough! I was wrongfully terminated from my long term job. I didn't know where to turn and found Mr. Shirazi. He took the time to talk to me for an hour explaining what legal rights I had. Upon hiring Mr. shirazi he kept me up to date on every step and was honest and upfront with me. He worked miracles and got me a great settlement. Mr Shirazi handles only employment cases and his expertise was invaluable to my case. if you find yourself in need of an employment attorney, Mr. Shirazi is the one to call.

Employment law
I believe that Most of Mr Shirazi's clients are employees. However, I'm writing this review as an employer. Mr Shirazi prepares all of our legal documents in the area of employment (manuals, contracts, etc) and he acts as an advisor in dealing with all employment matters. His consistency/efficiency in his work and his vast knowledge in the area make him the ideal employment attorney.

Tactical, Strategic and Persuasive Advocate
Mr. Shirazi exceeded my expectations in finding the reasonably well-concealed vulnerabilities of our adversary and exploiting them with a style that left only advantageous doors open. From client intake through satisfactory conclusion, I felt he was very strongly in my corner and anticipated and neutralized the opponent most effectively. I highly recommend him for wrongful termination plaintiffs, especially in discrimination cases, as well as other disciplines where his research and style make him compelling.

Shirazi Law Firm turned my life around!
Shirazi Law Firm is incredible! I came to them almost a year ago about a sexual harassment case. I was referred by someone who knew them and their skill set well. We got the ball rolling with my case then after a few months I got cold feet, I told them I didn’t want to follow through and they understood. I went back to the place where I was wrongfully harassed because the person was removed from the location but when I came back they treated me very poorly. They were retaliating in many different ways. I got the courage to call Mr. Shirazi again and he said let’s take care of this, no one deserves to be treated this way. He cared about my case and was very sensitive to the subject matter. He is professional and reliable. We continued the lawsuit and I am so happy I did because they made the whole process so easy. Mr Shirazi and his team took everything into their own hands and every few weeks I would get an update of how things were going. He was accessible when I had any questions or concerns and he guided me through the whole thing. He knows what he is doing and he does it well. We settled my case and I wouldn’t have done this with anyone else. They are a great firm!

Professional, supportive, and caring lawyer.
Emanuel was such a life safer. I have never been in a situation where I needed a lawyer before, and I was lost. I knew I had a case, and that it warranted the need for an employment lawyer but I was afraid of the process. Emanuel took good care of me. He educated me along the way and made me feel comfortable and safe. Ultimately, I walked away with a monetary amount that was deserving and the issue was resolved. I highly recommend Emanuel Shirazi.
