Pieter has represented employees since his work with the California Department of Fair Employment & Housing and San Francisco Employment Rights Center, including attorneys who have been wrongfully terminated and needed a proven and experienced advocate themselves. He has the respect of colleagues, adversaries and clients, as demonstrated by the following testimonials.
Pieter Bogaards is a worthy adversary: loyal to his clients, tenacious, honest and pragmatic.
Neil J. Moran, Esq.
Partner in the Freitas Law Firm, LLP
Pieter has been generously giving of his time, patience and expertise to our employment law clients since 1998. We have shared many victories and I look to Pieter for further advice and assistance in the future.
Pro Bono Program Manager
Legal Aid of Marin
I have consulted with Pieter on a number of cases. He has excellent, incisive litigation skills and practical judgment. Whenever we talk about litigation issues I always come away with something valuable.
Pieter’s clients are in good hands.
Julian M. Baum, Esq.
Julian M. Baum & Associates
Stunned to be fired, I found myself with no option but to sue my former friends, my former law firm. Pieter stepped up to represent me in the contentious discrimination case that followed the firm's threat to "bury me" if I dared to take action. Our first mediator said no judge would find the time to even read the briefs, because the privilege issues were so complex. In the face of a grinding, aggressive defense, resulting in a 61-page court docket, Pieter pressed on to methodically address sensitive attorney-client privilege issues, including an anti-SLAPP motion grounded in the litigation privilege. While they tried to get us to rely on privileged evidence, Pieter strategically grounded the case on unprivileged information in the public record. Pieter won motion after motion. He persevered and prevailed, ultimately restoring my own faith in the court system.
