  • John Scott Bonagofsky

    Kathy Dickson is one of a small handful of the very best plaintiff's employment lawyers in California. Her clients get a level of representation that is second to none. But her clients are not the only beneficiaries of her excellence. She is also a wonderful person who takes time to mentor, train, and educate other attorneys. Her clients are lucky to have her as their representative, and her fellow lawyers are fortunate to have her in our community.
