The firm’s attorneys appear and advocate regularly throughout the nation before federal, state and local courts, administrative agencies and arbitration panels in their representation of unions, injured workers, collectively-bargained trust funds, and employees, with respect to a broad range of tort, labor relations and employment matters. In addition to tort litigation brought on behalf of its own clients, the firm continues to play a unique role as local counsel for out-of-state attorneys involved in tort litigation in the state and federal courts of the State of California. The firm’s tort litigation includes: Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA), vehicular and professional negligence, toxic tort, product liability, and employment and business litigation.
As to labor-related matters, in addition to the gamut of “bread and butter” cases wherein a union must defend its decisions as collective bargaining agent for employees and a trust fund brings collection suits against delinquent employers, the firm has participated in bankruptcy cases to protect union members’ interests against insolvent employers, whistleblower actions, wage and hour litigation, and has often been called upon to prepare and file amicus curiae briefs on behalf of clients who are intensely interested in disputes where they are not formal parties.
