About me

David F. Tibor is a Partner with JML Law handling cases in the firm's Employment Law and Personal Injury Departments. David manages JML Law's San Francisco Office.

David is a seasoned employment attorney representing both private and public sector employees, as well as high level executives, minimum wage workers, and everyone in between. For over decade David has fought for employees against the largest corporations and continues to obtain millions of dollars each year for his clients.  He has represented clients in California’s trial courts and appellate courts, Federal District Courts and the United States Courts for the Ninth Circuit, arbitrations, and various other government administrative forums.  David's peers have recognized his hard work and dedication to the rights of employees by selecting him as a "Rising Star" by Super Lawyer magazine from 2009 through 2015, an honor based on the review of other lawyers and available to only 2.5% of eligible attorneys in California.  More recently, David’s peers have continued to recognize his efforts and achievements for his clients by selecting him in the same publication as a “Super Lawyer” in 2016.

David decided to dedicate his legal career to representing employees and individuals before law school while working in the construction industry.  While at various employers, David personally witnessed his peers, including those in union environments, denied the same opportunities because of their immigration status, race, and/or gender. David’s employment law practice primarily involves representing individuals in the areas of wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, wage and hour, and whistleblowing.

Outside of the practice of law, David has found volunteering for community projects as another positive approach to meet individual needs in a profound way.  Currently David is fortunate to serve on the board of directors for ONEgeneration, a unique non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of seniors and children through intergenerational services and programs.
When not working, David enjoys spending time with his family, as most Southern California natives, outdoors, in the yard or in the waves, or on the soccer field where he coaches both of his daughters’ teams.
