California Employment Lawyers: Smith & Lo, Work Lawyers

When you have been treated unfairly at work, you shouldn’t have to suffer. There are laws that protect employees from many types of improper conduct. The California employment law firm of Smith & Lo, Work Lawyers believes that employers who break the law should face the consequences, and that means getting employees the compensation they deserve.

The attorneys at Smith & Lo are committed to helping employees find justice.

We’re on Your Side

Employers violate the law all too often. This can happen when they misunderstand labor laws or ignore employee rights altogether. Legal action is sometimes necessary to make things right.

The attorneys at Smith & Lo are experienced advocates who champion the rights of employees. If they take on your case, they will listen to your concerns, explain how the law applies to you, and give practical advice about what steps you should take.

Our California employment lawyers aren’t afraid to stand up to employers. Your needs are a priority. This means that our team will keep you informed, giving you the knowledge and information you need to make the best decisions for you and your family.

We are always focused on securing you maximum compensation. In addition, we consider how to protect your reputation and career, finding a resolution that is truly in your best interests.

Act Before It’s Too Late

California law provides broad protections for employees that have faced discrimination, harassment, misclassification, non-payment of wages, and other violations in the workplace. To take full advantage of these laws, however, employees must meet deadlines that require claims to be filed within a certain time.

If you don’t file the claim with the right agency or court before the applicable deadline, your could lose your right to obtain fair compensation for the harm done to you. Contact the California employment law office of Smith & Lo immediately to ensure your claims are not lost. Our lawyers will identify the applicable deadlines and help you preserve your claims.

Affordable Employment Lawyers

We understand that many people cannot afford to pay the steep hourly rates that most lawyers charge. That’s why we accept cases on a contingent-fee basis.

Taking a case on a contingent-fee basis means that if we accept your case, you do not pay an hourly fee or retainer. Instead, we take a portion of your eventual recovery. In most cases, we will even advance litigation costs.

If we do not recover money, then you will not owe us any attorney fees. Nor will you have to pay us back for any litigation costs we advanced. Put simply: if we don’t win, we don’t get paid.
