Fierce Advocate For Survivors Of Sexual Harassment
Attorney Melanie D. Popper asked me to leave a review regarding her representation in my case from a few years ago. It was a long fight, but we did prevail after several depositions and hearings on my sexual harassment case. Ms. Popper made me feel protected and like I had a boxer in my corner and I highly recommend her firm for representation in California.

Consulting with Melanie
Melanie provided a lot of insight on what to expect for my problem. She was very timely, thorough, and left me at ease after speaking with her. She was thorough my giving two scenarios of possible legal actions and outcomes, and if they were a valid report or not.

My Review for California Sexual Harassment Lawyer
Thank you so much for your service! Your support made me feel powerful in this situation. Attorney Melanie D. Popper represented me in a sexual harassment lawsuit a few years ago involving my supervisor and she asked me to write this recommendation for their office. I so appreciated her attentiveness and professionalism. Women in the workforce dealing with this type of behavior and treatment need zealous attorneys who are willing to stand up for us. It was a long journey, but with great results in the end. Thank you!

My experience with Attorney Melanie Popper
Attorney Melanie Popper went above and beyond in representing me on my sexual harassment case. Ms. Popper promptly gathered a witness declaration, drafted detailed documents, the case resolved fast and my settlement amount was much larger than I had expected. Additionally, she made sure that my case stayed in court instead of arbitration and the check came quickly. She also offered to help make sure that I receive unemployment benefits. I'm very satisfied and I recommend this attorney. If you have been sexually harassed in the workplace in California, this is a good attorney to hire.

Compassionate Honest Detailed and Expert
Attorney Popper is as I described in the title and more. Specifically, she provided clarity into my situation. She was very direct about the difficulties involved in my matter. I so value her insights. Her honesty is a welcome change. Although the specifics of my matter were within her realm but not her focus these days Ms. Popper still took a great deal of her time to provide me resources. She gave me several unique resources not previously known to me. Then she went that step further to not only provide names but contact information to attorneys she knew personally who met my specific need. I would recommend Melanie Popper in a heartbeat.

Excellent Negotiator
Attorney Melanie Popper recently represented me during a Fair Employment and Housing investigation and she was excellent at negotiating and really pushed for me because I was harassed and discriminated against. I recommend her. Thanks.

Representation
I hired this attorney and she represented me in an EEO discrimination case. The case is confidential but I could not be more pleased with the outcome. Attorney Popper went out of her way from beginning to end. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.
