Rousso & Jackel, Attorneys was founded in May, 2005. We are trial lawyers specializing in employment law, especially wage and hour law. We help employees with wage claims such as unpaid overtime, missed meal breaks and unpaid commissions. We also help employees who are denied wages because they were mis-classified as "independent contractors."
Rousso & Jackel also consults with employers and other business entities on employment and business matters, including defending wage claims and breach of contract claims. We represent employers and businesses in court, at the California Labor Commissioner's Office, in arbitration and at mediation.
We defend people and businesses who have been sued for breach of contract, wrongful termination, breach of lease, unlawful detainer and various torts.
