About Us_old

Trusted Employment Law Firm in Santa Ana

40+ Years of Combined Experience

Between our attorneys at The Gould Law Firm, we offer more than 40 years of combined experience to help our clients prevail when they come forward with employment law violation claims. When workers are abused or mistreated by their bosses or coworkers, it can have lasting impacts upon their lives and the safety of a workplace. We see it as our responsibility to confront accountable parties with effective legal action that can lead to a more positive outcome for our clients.

We have the experience and skill it takes to handle any employment law claim, but we have a particular track record of success for clients involved in disability discrimination disputes, wrongful termination lawsuits, as well as wage and overtime violation claims. We can assist anyone, but we’ve often been chosen by union employees and government workers to help them fight for their interests in fair and just compensation.

Due to various statutes of limitations, you may only have a limited time to file a lawsuit and seek fair and just compensation. Depending upon the nature of your claim or whether or not you’re a union employee, you may have only six months to a few years to file your lawsuit in court.

Before filing your lawsuit, you may need authorization from a government agency such as the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EOOC) or The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). When you do, either of these agencies may investigate your claim to determine whether or not you have sufficient evidence or reason to proceed with a private lawsuit against your employer.

Due to this process, it can take a considerable amount of time before you can ever file with the court to meet the statute of limitations. An experienced employment attorney in Santa Ana like one of ours can help you navigate this process to lessen the risk of losing your chance to sue.
