AGGRESSIVE SEXUAL HARASSMENT ATTORNEY TAKING CASES THROUGHOUT CALIFORNIA AND WASHINGTON – NO RECOVERY/NO FEES
For several years, Michael Malk aggressively litigated cases for a plaintiff’s firm in Los Angeles, obtaining exemplary results for his clients in cases against some of the biggest companies in California who were represented by some of the biggest law firms in the nation. Since founding his own law firm in 2007, Mr. Malk continues to zealously represent his clients’ interests. He understands that each client and each case is different. Some cases are amenable to early resolution so that the parties can obtain a sure result and move on with their lives without the stress of litigation, while other cases must be litigated through trial. Whatever the case, Mr. Malk is sensitive to his client’s goals, and works with them to effectively and economically maximize their results.

Further, Mr. Malk has developed a niche in the class action arena in lawsuits on behalf of employees who are subjected to illegal labor practice such as having to work off-the-clock, not being paid wage and overtime, and not being reimbursed for business expenses.

Mr. Malk received his B.A. from U.C. Santa Barbara, and his J.D. from the U.C. Davis School of Law. He volunteers his time to community service organizations, and is committed to fighting for workers’ rights. If you would like your case evaluated at no charge, please tell us about your case.

We represent employees in a variety of cases including:
  • Discrimination;
  • Unpaid wages and unpaid overtime;
  • Sexual harassment and assault;
  • Whistleblowing; and
  • Wrongful termination.
Most of our current cases are class actions against companies for the following violations:
  • Unpaid Wages/Unpaid Overtime and Working off-the-clock;
  • Unreimbursed Business Expenses, such as gas (for business errands), supplies, cell phone, and travel expenses; and
  • Failure to Provide Duty-Free Meal and Rest Periods

Top notch lawyer
Mr. Malk was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and worked tirelessly on my behalf. I am forever grateful for his thoughtful legal counsel. His professional guidance was not only reassuring but compassionate in an otherwise incredibly stressful and difficult time. I highly recommend him.

Labor Dispute
I hired Michael for a classification dispute. Not only was her very professional but he was always available for questions and thoroughly explained the process every step of the way. His recommendations resulted in the best possible outcome.

Michael is THE BEST
Michael is such an amazing attorney! Don't hesitate to contact him if you need advice! He is extremely compassionate, honest, and straightforward. Not only did he help me resolve my situation, he also helped me regain so much of the dignity and self respect I had lost because of the many years I spent in a toxic work environment. I am so extremely appreciative for everything he did to help me! Without exaggeration, he changed my life.

Responsive, Knowledgable, Extremely Helpful
Michael was quick, thorough, and although was not available for my case, kindly provided me with a referral who was. In my experience, he went beyond and above what I might have suspected might have been a simple email brush off. Instead, he took the time to schedule a call and listen to all the facts of my case, then provided legal information that was exactly what I needed. Will definitely recommend Malk Law for anyone else seeking Employment Law representation.

Michael Malk took my case, been knowing Mike for 10 years. Mike took both of my friends cases which he won, this made it easy for me to know who to reach out to when I needed a lawyer. Mike is very professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. He is always on point and communication was always on time if your looking for a good lawyer Mike is definitely the guy for the job I give Mike a 10+star rating. You won't regret hiring Mike.

Disability and wrongful termination
It was a pleasure having Micheal Malk as my attorney, he and his staff walked me through everything from the start to finish of the suit. If you ever need an attorney that is personable, kind, extremely knowledgeable, with an amazing helpful staff, I recommend Micheal Malk.

S.N.
I would highly recommend Michael Malk as a lawyer. Recently, I received an email from my university (a private school) that they would no longer be accommodating my religious needs. As a Sabbath-observant Jew, this presented a dilemma for me. I was told by many people to reach out to Mr. Malk, and I'm glad I did. Within a week, he had sent a letter to the school, and the situation was resolved. I thank Mr. Malk tremendously for helping me with my situation.

He's that good!
When you fight goliath you want to come to the battle with Michael. He understood my fight for justice and stood united with me every step of the way. There were days that I had lots of questions and morning, noon or night he would answer everything for me. No matter how busy he was, he always ensured I understood all my options. I hope I never have to fight goliath again, but if I ever do I would want Michael on my team, he’s that good!

Highly Recommended
I could not have had a smoother experience in my case. Michael is beyond professional yet personable and extremely invested in his client’s cases. He was a guide through the entire process, being very thorough and answering all the questions I had. I felt confident throughout my case as he continuously exceeded expectations. I could not ask for a more qualified and professional attorney to represent me. Michael Malk is HIGHLY recommended.

He is truly is a great guy
Michael understood my case and job very quickly, he is very smart and articulate. I worked with him for about a year. And hard for me or maybe anyone can say about a lawyer but I respect him as a person I honestly consider him a friend and hope we keep in touch. He knows his job very well and was quick to understand my job to put a case together. Very professional lawyer I like the fact that he doesn’t take cases he doesn’t believe in. If you or anyone needs a professional great lawyer. I would highly recommend Michael.

Michael was pleasantly professional and personal
Michael professionally provided suggestions about my case and was really empathetical about my unfortunate situation. Although we won't be partnering together on my case, but Michael did his best to help me analyzing my situation and offered tremendous amount of emotional support. I would definitely recommend him and want to work with him should future needs present.

Honest evaluation
I spoke to Mr Malk twice on April 16, 2021 regarding my work situation. Mr Malk advised me that my case although grievous was not legally significant. This was not what I wanted to hear, but I greatly appreciate the honest consultation. A lawyer that I would trust to represent me

A kind attorney with a keen mind
Mr. Malk helped me explore possible solutions to my potential claim against my former employer with clear thinking and quick yet thorough reasonings. I was surprised how kind he was in giving me substantive feedbacks without charging me fees, letting me have sufficient information before I proceed with litigation. I feel very thankful to him and would recommend him to anyone who has employment law issues.
