    I represent employers and employees in employment law lawsuits and arbitrations, mainly in cases involving wrongful termination, unpaid overtime, class actions, and workplace discrimination and harassment. I also draft employee handbooks and counsel employers on their day-to-day employment practices. I regularly draft contracts and other policies for businesses, including for their websites.

Attorney Michael Strauss focuses his legal practice on assisting employees in California through their employment law matters. He routinely handles a broad range of complicated issues, including wage and hour cases, class actions, unpaid overtime, Labor Commissioner conferences and hearings, and more. His extensive knowledge of the nuances of the California Labor Code has assisted clients in recovering multimillions in their employment cases. Currently, Michael runs the daily operations of Strauss & Strauss, APC, taking a hands on approach with nearly every client of the firm. In fact, he is often the first person clients talk to when calling the firm to schedule their free initial consultation.

The best of the best.
Taking into account that this was the first time I have ever needed legal counsel I consider myself blessed to have found Michael Strauss. I contacted his firm with my employment issue and he called me back the same day. Michael answered all my questions honestly and legally represented me in a superior manner every step of the way. I have to say that his ability to interact with the client in a productive and stress free manner made the whole process very easy in my opinion. The most impressive part of my experience was Michael's ability to stay 4 steps ahead of opposing counsel from start to finish.
