About Paul

Learn Paul’s areas of practice.

Practice area

I have extensive experience in all areas of employment law, including wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and wage and hour claims, among other areas. I am a seasoned litigator with substantial civil litigation experience.

My job is to obtain the biggest financial award possible for you when you are mistreated by your employer, whether by discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, or theft of your wages. My goal is to obtain a favorable resolution of your claim without going to trial, so you receive your money as soon as possible. However, if an employer refuses to acknowledge its wrongful conduct and accept responsibility, I will not hesitate to take your claim to trial. In addition, I am a member of organizations that fight for the rights of employees just like you, including the American Association for Justice.

I began my legal career at the law firm Hallstrom, Klein & Ward, LLP in Orange County where I represented large and small companies, including auto dealerships and import/export businesses, in civil litigation. After 12 years at the firm, I was sick of representing soulless corporations and decided I wanted to utilize my negotiation and litigation skills to help real people, like you, with their struggle against unlawful employers, so I founded Kurtzhall Law. When you hire me to fight for your right to work in a fair and unbiased job environment, you are not only seeking justice for yourself, but also for the betterment of all California employees.

While in law school, I gained valuable litigation experience through externships, including participating in international civil and criminal rights programs at the University von Amsterdam in the Netherlands and at the International Criminal Court at The Hague during Slobodan Milosevic’s trial for war crimes. I also held a prestigious position at the Gang Unit of the Orange County District Attorney’s Office where I assisted with the investigation, compilation, and prosecution of gang related felonies and capital murder cases.
