Best Employment Attorney in Orange County
Rob is an exceptional employment attorney, who is a true advocate for his clients and will go above and beyond to ensure you get the maximum outcome possible. He really takes the time to thoroughly understand the details of your case and has the unique ability to leverage pertinent elements to establish the most advantageous position. Most importantly, Rob is trustworthy, compassionate, easy to communicate with and extremely responsive. It is evident he genuinely cares, values his clients and makes a wholehearted investment in the cases he takes on. I am confident that he is the best wrongful termination lawyer in the Orange County and Los Angeles region, as he is committed to fighting for what's right and wants justice for his clients. I am so glad I found him and highly recommend him, as his domain expertise in employment law is truly unparalleled!

Severence Package & Litigation Consultation
I was recently laid off from my job. My former employer offered me a severance package which was too complicated for me to understand. I was given Rob's contact information by a good friend of mine. When I contacted Rob, he was very kind and listened to my account. After I was done, he gave him his professional opinion and then proceeded to answer all of my questions (I had many). Throughout the process, he made me feel very at ease. Once we were done with the consultation, he also offered to review my severance offer. He was overall very professional and more importantly very kind and patient with me.

Transparent and Knowledgeable
Right from the initial consultation, I was treated like a valued client. Mr. Odell listened to my concerns and respectfully gathered the facts surrounding my recent termination. He was transparent, knowledgeable, and provided excellent suggestions. I will definitely seek to retain the services of Odell Law if representation is needed.

Helped With My Severance Agreement
Robert was gracious enough to help me with my severance agreement during what can only be considered a stressful time when you lose your job. He was able to provide me language to negotiate more favorable terms and was fast in his responses and kind in his approach. He was honest with what my best options were and I would recommend him to anyone who is unsure of how to proceed with a severance agreement.

Excellent Choice
Robert proved to be excellent choice when I needed to find an employment attorney who would listen to my discrimination issue. He was very intuitive when it came to understanding what the real underlying issues were in my case. Above all, he was honest and extremely accurate when it came to forecasting what the results of my case might be. If you think you have an issue with an employer that may require legal action and do not know where to turn, call Robert first. He will give you a straightforward and honest answer on how you should proceed.

I utilized Robert to help with my employment problems
I would highly recommend Robert . In my case he exceeded my expectations for a settlement. He was easy to work with and kept me in the loop during the process.

Discrimination Attorney | Jan 29
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I recall the first trial Robert co-counseled with attorney Tamara Freeze. Their client was discriminated against by the government entity she worked for based on her religion. Defense could have settled the matter for a five figure amount, over 15x less than what the jury awarded. In the end, through hard and smart work, dedication, and an eye for details and knowledge of the relevant law, Robert was able to get this client around $1.2 million. The facts of this case were unique to warrant such a high award, but such would not have occurred without Robert's expertise. For this, I endorse this lawyer."
