  1. Wrongful termination
    100%
    Wrongful termination is a term used by many people when they get fired. However, it has a specific legal meaning that is very broad. In California, it means an employee was fired for a reason that violates fundamental public policy. This public policy is found in the CA Constitution, case law, and statutes.

Employment termination
My employment discrimination case was aggressively defended. Branigan was instrumental in steering the case through the process, arbitration, depositions and eventually mediation. In the end we received a satisfactory settlement and the mediator made note of the "really well written" brief as being instrumental in the success of the case. We always felt that Branigan was working on our side and I have no hesitations in recommending his services.

Excellent Labor and Employment Attorney in Orange County, CA
Branigan is extremely knowledgeable in the realm of labor and employment law. He has dedicated his practice to strictly this facet of law. It is more than apparent he cares deeply for his clients, and ensures all of their rights are fully protected. He fights the good fight for the individuals who were taken advantage of, and will truly protect your interests. I would highly recommend him for anyone with an employment question or potential case.

Professional Lawyer
After being fired for an unlawful reason, I interviewed a couple of lawyers to see if I had a case and to see who I wanted to represent me. I was referred to Branigan Robertson and after meeting with him for the first time, I knew I wanted to work with him. He is honest, hard working, prepared, and kind. He tells you exactly what he needs from you. In order for him to do his job to the best of his ability, you must be honest and upfront with him when he is asking you questions. Branigan was very passionate about my case and worked extremely hard on it for over a year and a half. Any time I called or emailed him, he was always responsive. Not only was he prompt when dealing with the legal aspect of my case, he was also concerned about my personal well-being as my case was an extremely emotional lawsuit. My case ended up going to trial and we ended up working with Lawrance Bohn who is a great trial lawyer. We won our case and punitive damages were also rewarded. I highly recommend Branigan Robertson to represent you. He fights hard for what is right. You won’t be disappointed.

Brilliant Employee Attorney
After I was terminated from a position that I had held with a company for 23 years, Branigan Robertson reviewed all the data that I had gathered from the incident of my termination and determined that I had a viable lawsuit and accepted me as a client. He dove into my case with great passion and explored all angles of the law to determine the best approach for the best result. He is informative, takes the time necessary to explain areas of the law that may not be fully understood, and he is a caring and compassionate individual. Branigan made me feel as if we were a team, talking to me at each step of the way, listening to my feedback, and assuring me when I had fears or doubts about the progress of the process. He has great personal presence and I always felt comfortable around him. I highly recommend Branigan Robertson for your employment dispute. He is an upstanding, hard working man who derives his satisfaction from helping the client to achieve a favorable judgment.

Hats Off To You Branigan
My whole experience with Branigan Robertson was marvelous. He was always on top of my case. Always reassured me when I was upset about certain aspics of my lawsuit. Branigan will do his outstanding best for his client. Never in my life have I ever had a lawyer who always returned my calls and emails lighting FAST. You bet I would call him if I needed a attorney again in the future. Give Branigan Robertson a call when you need a great attorney for what he does.

Thank you Branigan
Branigan help me with my case, before speaking to Branigan I called around to see to is anyone would take my case. A lot of attorneys did not answer my phone calls or return them till days later or just didnt want to take the case. As soon as I called Branigan he answer my phone call i told him my problem and he told me to go into his office an hour later to speak some more. From the first day i talk to Branigan he made me feel comfortable, very polite, he took my case and during the whole process he kept me well inform of everything as soon as he found out information he called me right away.I would recommend Branigan to anyone that needs legal help. Thank you Branigan

Eager, very eager.
I was one of his first clients and if I could use one word to describe him it would be "eager". I have worked in the field of Law as well and compared to veteran attorneys he is far more responsive and always kept me up to date. Any time I left a voicemail he returned my call within 24 hours at most but usually called back the same day. He never left me with any doubt about his capability or integrity at any point and I would recommend him to anyone that needs representation in his area of expertise...and I have.

DOESN'T WALK IT LIKE HE TALK IT
Branigan Robertson Neglected My Unlawful Employment And Unlawful Termination Case Of Discrimination. He's Just Trying To Market His Youtube Videos For Fame And Accept Financial Bribes Or Other Youtube Sponsors, Rather Than Accept Employment Cases From The Real Victims Of Unlawful Employment And Unlawful Termination. He Does Not Walk It Like He Talk It, So, Don't Waste Your Time. (receive legal help from organizations around your current city or fee waiver a pro se litigation)

Response from Branigan Robertson May 24, 2021
Mr. Leak, Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, we cannot accept representation for many people who contact our office as we cannot help everyone. We get thousands of calls each year and we do our best helping as many people as we can. Moreover, many people who contact us simply don't have a case (or the law wasn't broken in a way that justifies taking legal action with a private attorney). I agree that many people who cannot find a lawyer can benefit from receiving help from local organizations, the DFEH, or the Labor Board. Those are good options for people who cannot find a lawyer. With that said, I have no idea what you're talking about with respect to "financial bribes" or "sponsors." Yes, I release YouTube videos and I and put them online so people can learn about employment law for free. I organize and explaining legal information. That is my way of trying to help more people. Those videos are not legal advice. Yes, YouTube is a marketing tool that I use, but it certainly should be interpreted to say that I will accept anyone as a client who calls my office. I wish you the best of luck in your legal matter. Take care.
