Practice area

Angel Horacek practices employment and civil rights law.  Prior to starting her own firm, she worked for a large national firm and handled employment matters. In addition, she has handled general business litigation, product liability, and intellectual property matters.

Angel represents clients in courts and in arbitrations.  If the client so chooses, prior to commencing litigation, she counsels employees about their specific situations in the workplace in order to attempt to resolve the issues with the employer.  If possible, she works with the employer to resolve these cases before a lawsuit is filed – putting the worker back to work with minimal disruption.  She understands that a client's work is that client's livelihood.

She is admitted to practice in all state courts in California, in the United States District Courts for the Central and Southern Districts of California and in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.  She was an extern for the Honorable Andrew J. Wistrich, Magistrate Judge of the United States District Court, Central District of California.

She obtained both her J.D. and her B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles.

In addition to being a member of the California Bar Association, she is a member of the California Employment Lawyers Association, the John M. Langston Bar Association, and the Los Angeles County Bar Association.

She is professional, knowledgeable and passionate about her work.
Angel does not string you along. She is up front and clear about her intentions. She knows the law and how to apply it. If she takes your case you can rest assured it is in good and caring hands. She won’t take your case if she doesn’t believe in it. If she believes in it, she will stick with you until the end (WIN). Angel James Horacek is my true Angel who stuck with me for 10years and didn’t stop until we won,

Brilliant, Skilled, and Trustworthy
I was fortunate to have Angel as my lawyer and have already recommended her to others in my network. She is the real deal and will be straight forward about what she can and cannot do. Angel was also able to include some lightheartedness into our serious attorney-client meetings, which made the journey much more manageable for me. I trusted Angel with helping make specific asks and demands and if it were not for her, I would probably have settled for less, but she was adamant on me not lowballing myself. The law is complicated and legal battles can be messy, but Angel knows the laws and knows how to fight for her clients. She notices the bluffs on opposing counsel and would reaffirm me that she has the situation handled. There were moments where I was overwhelmed and scared, but Angel is truly brilliant and skilled where she was able to navigate any situation. My hope is that I would never be in such a situation again, but if it were to happen, I would definitely call Angel. I am truly grateful for Angel and she has inspired me to always stand for what I believe in and seek support when I need help.

Highly Recommend
I found myself in a negative situation with my employer and while I'm used to handling problems directly, I felt like this time, I was in over my head. I had tried to find an employment attorney to hire, but after speaking to several of them, they indicated that they were only representing employers. A friend referred me to Ms. Horacek and I couldn't be happier. She was very easy to work with and offered me options throughout the process. I felt like we were a team in solving this "problem" for me, and gave me insights into the process that helped me to understand how it all worked. She also has a very kind manner that is a great thing when you're already really stressed out about the possibility of separating from your job and having the rug pulled out from under you, so to speak. Leaving your job, losing your job, or whatever you situation - it's a very stressful time. But she made it easier for me. I would highly recommend Ms. Horacek to anyone looking for an employment and labor attorney. She will take care of you as her client and help get you to the best outcome possible.

A true client centered attorney
A dedicated professional who not only knows the law but is empathetic to the needs of her clients in a manner that fosters an astute sense of comfort predicated on a determination to do what is in the best interest of the client. Always available with responses that is well thought out and detailed enough so that the point of law is preserved with the client's best interest always maintained. Not only are illegal services provided but the client also benefits from an understanding of the law relative to the situation that caused Angel in the clients to interact.

Thorough & passionate defender of labor laws.
Ms. Horacek provided excellent counsel throughout my case. She was confident, capable and I would gladly refer her to my associates. Ms. Horacek was able to reach a settlement in my case and I am pleased with the results from her hard work and strong ethics.

Excellent Employment Attoryney
As the general manager of a medium-sized consulting firm, I have regular, unpredictable concerns related to employment law. How does the new health care law apply to us? How do I handle a non-performing long-term employee? Is our handbook compliant with current regulations? I just send all of these concerns to Angel, and she comes back to us quickly, with thought-out, simple explanations of the issues as they relate to us, our options, and a recommended course of action. If only all lawyers were this easy to work with!

Very positive experience and results
Angel Horacek helped our family resolve a very tough situation. We were in the middle of downsizing --- selling our house and buying a less expensive one --- when I was suddenly laid off. That threatened to undo our loan and a lot of work and planning to change our lives for the better. The company was unwilling to meet a couple of key requests that would help us save the deal and make the move. Angel negotiated a good outcome for us, one that we could not have done on our own. Plus, she was wonderful to work with -- she listened to our side of the story, came up with a solid strategy, communicated clearly with us all the way though, and had great advice. She's smart, strong, and we really felt like we had great support in what was a scary situation. Angel really came through, and we recommend her enthusiastically.

Best Employment Attorney in Los Angeles
I want to take a moment to give recognition and say THANK YOU to Angel Horacek for everything she did for me in regards to my employment discrimination case. I never thought I would be in a situation where I would have to seek legal advice, and yet there I was. A friend referred me to Angel and from our very first phone conversation I felt hope and support. I was impressed by Angel’s knowledge and ability to explain to me how best to approach my case. My situation was emotionally taxing, and Angel supported me just like a friend would. I appreciate that more than I can say. I can confidently say that Angel had my best interest at heart and treated me like an individual, as opposed to a dollar sign. It is my honor to recommend Angel for your legal needs.

Angel Horacek gets two thumbs up!
It is with the highest regard and personal respect that I recommend Angel Horacek. I was involved in a race-related employment issue that was a career nightmare. The situation was very stressful for my family and me. I was referred to Angel by a personal friend, and I cannot thank him enough. From the time I met her, until one year later when my case was settled, Angel was a professional confidant, who was always accessible. Phone calls and emails were always returned in a very timely manner, even over the weekends. She was always on time for meetings and able to accommodate my hectic schedule. She is extremely knowledgeable about California employment laws, and a dynamo in the court room. She is a compassionate advocate who is committed to her clients. To see the respect she is given in the courtroom with attorneys decades older, is an inspiration. Angel, was an answer to my prayers, so for me, she lives up to her name.
