Andrea was a delight to work with. She took time to understand my labor situation, make recommendations and provide advise on the most efficient way to settlement. She is responsive and knowledgable!

Employment Law
I found Andrea online(her blog) when searching for an employment lawyer to review and update our employment documents a couple of years ago. Our business is General Contracting / Service & Repair in Orange County, CA. 20+ employees Normally I only find lawyers via referrals from friends and other lawyers, but after speaking with her and getting some legal updates in regards to employment law, I knew I had found the right attorney for our employees and company. Navigating California employment law can be challenging for small businesses. In my opinion in order to have staying power and grow in CA, you have to do right by your employees, customers and owners. Andrea is so well versed in FED & CA employment law, that I knew we needed her on the side of our company and employees. I have used her for more than a couple of matters. We have been happy with the outcome each and every time. When it comes to Federal and CA Employment law, you should always have a specialist on your side. Andrea is that perfect fit for our growing team. Matters that she has resolved for us: Employee Compensation / Commission document Employee Termination Overtime and Payroll General employment legal advise & updates
