These include victims of employment situations where hard working members of our Bay Area are subjected to difficult working conditions.

Arlo has worked in the Bay Area legal community since 1991, first as a legal assistant for various personal injury firms. He has extensive experience settling claims with insurance companies. While most cases settle, Arlo has experience taking cases to trial. for proper adjudication by the jury. He has obtained multi-million dollar judgments and settlements for his clients.

Go Straight to Arlo
Having wrongful termination as your case is really stressful but finding a knowledgeable and genuine lawyer to help you is FAR MORE STRESSFUL. Called 31 lawyers and blessed to meet Arlo. He definitely stands out from the 30 lawyers I spoke to. You can definitely feel his sincerity and honesty. Most importantly, He knows what needs to be done. Don’t waste your time. He is the man for the job.

I like this guy
This guy needs to run for mayor or something. Being a lawyer is beneath him. When my employer was making my life hell on Earth, I felt so helpless. I had to have called up 10 lawyers. I dealt with so many who didn't talk to me straight. This guy actually read through my stuff. Frankly his consultation on its own gave me more time than lawyers I hired. Every other lawyer blew me off and didn't even care to look over my stuff. One even agreed to get me on a phone call, but ended up just flaking even having a consultation - Even *after* I took 30 minutes to fill out a form for him! Yeah! I think I'll be reviewing that guy next! Now it's time to reward the good guys though. Frankly I am a chicken dealing with lawyers. I'm not familiar with it. I could probably program the next big thing some day but the law to me is a bunch of wizardry. I ended up chickening out and not going through with the severance agreement. When I wrote the company lawyers a big letter to them about what I got put through they responded (in substance): The company disagrees with your points and doesn't want to discuss the matter this time. Kind of like how I came in at 5 AM to program my companies software. How I stood there and dealt with bullying behavior by people who, in fact, had little clue of the subject at hand were NOT senior. I was programming in the work force programming and only dropped out to do a summer program sponsored by Google. Do they care what I sacrificed for them? I hardly took a day off! Other's went to Hawaii! I stayed weekends! The manipulativeness of the CEO - after all my sacrifice - he even manipulated the staff to just reject my box I had mailed to me at the office. For a coffee machine I paid by hand for all to use. As if my own *taint* was a scar on the company. The CEO even bragged to his friend about how, in our performance reviews and private talks, he deliberately tried to push and stress me. Corporations that act like a parasite at the blood of an honest worker destroy the trust we have in things. The ideals that make labor actually work. What a toxic CEO. Want to know how to fix things? You clone an army of Arlos. You are completely screwed if you don't have someone on your side!
