GREAT JOB!!!
Irvine Law Group handled my case of unpaid wages. I found Rod through a Google search online. I am a sole proprietor and was told by Rod that I was being misclassified as an independent contractor when I was really actually an employee. I am very pleased with the results of my case. Rod is a good lawyer who told me step by step how the process would be and he always answered my emails and phone calls. I would definitely recommend Irvine Law Group.

Its not what you know- its who represents you.
With my case I didn't know where to start while choosing a lawyer for my claims. I called a few different attorneys and they didn't get very excited about my case. I found Rod through a google search online. He was a hundred miles away from where I lived but I called him anyway. I began by telling him my complaints at work and how I wasn't getting paid for all the days I worked. After a few minutes Rod explained the laws and how they applied to me. My initial call to him was over only a few thousand dollars in unpaid wages but I ended up learning that for the last 5 years I'd been misclassified as a independent contractor when I was actually an employee. A few days later a demand letter went out for nearly $400,000 in unpaid wages and you can imagine my surprise. I had no idea I was even owed that much money. It wasn't more than a month later that my employer settled!

Great personal lawyer
Rod has gone above and beyond in my book. Of course I can't talk about my case, but he worked with me in every aspect and I believe he got me the best outcome I could receive. I would recommend him and use him again. Heck I've already recommended him.

Great business lawyer
Rod helped me and my business partner with a lawsuit. He is an extremely good lawyer. We were always able to get a hold of him personally, and if not, he would call us back immediately. This was our first lawuit and we were nervous. But he made the process as painfree as a lawsuit can be. I have already recommended him to others.
