Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&A

We are a small California law firm that represents employees.

We have represented employees for over 20 years. This includes representing employees against large, well-funded and defended employers such as Georgetown University and the Smithsonian Institution (represented by the Department of Justice) - where we have obtained six and seven figure settlements respectfully.

We have 4 published cases, have participated in Congressional Hearings, have changed the law in both the 4th Circuit and the District of Columbia, and have twice won the plaintiff’s case on a summary judgment motion (a rare event).

We have also received a recent accolade made in open court by a California Superior Court Judge that all attorneys in his courtroom (approximately 15 attorneys were present) should take note and mimic the manner in which we represented our client, our professionalism to the Court and to Defense Counsel. We do not run a mill. We do not litigate 10-30 cases at once.

We have dramatically cut our overhead, and this allows our practice to be much more focused on a handful of cases. The result is that every case gets a great deal of thought and attention from our firm. Much more so than mill firms.

We also intentionally partner on our cases with other top California employment attorneys with whom we have developed a professional working relationship. We partner for a number of reasons:

The practice of law is much more enjoyable associating with other counsel.

An association creates two sets of eyes and thoughts which strengthens the development and presentation in full of the client’s case.

The association does not raise the fee charged to the client at all. We look for difficult and cutting edge cases, including potential class actions.

If you have any kind of employment issue, please contact the firm. You will receive a prompt reply.

All the best, Alex T. Sliheet, Esq
