Costa Mesa Employment Lawyers

Orange County Employment Lawyers: Smith & Lo, Work Lawyers

Is your boss being unfair to you? Do you suspect your employer is breaking the law? You should contact an employment lawyer to find out if your employer has violated your civil rights, broken labor laws, unlawfully retaliated against you, or terminated you illegally.

Smith & Lo is a Costa Mesa employment law firm which was founded for the purpose of fighting for the rights of California employees. We believe in fairness and equality in the workplace and are dedicated to making this a reality, one client at a time.

When you are the victim of harassment, discrimination, or wage and hour violations, it can be confusing to figure out which way to turn. There are some things an employer might do that are unfair, but that are not necessarily illegal.

There are some violations which must be pursued in court, and others which must be filed with a state or federal agency first. Laws and regulations often have strict statutes of limitations. For these reasons, you should immediately contact Smith & Lo to ensure you don’t lose the right to pursue monetary damages against your employer.

Employment Lawyers in Costa Mesa

Smith & Lo was founded by two lawyers who have a wealth of knowledge about fighting for workers. Kyle D. Smith and Justin Lo handle cases for employees who are seeking monetary damages for sexual harassment, workplace discrimination, wrongful termination, wage and hour violations and more. When you walk through our door, you will find dedicated professionals who are personally invested in your future. They will explain your rights and discuss the best ways to vindicate them.

Our Costa Mesa attorneys offer individual attention to every client, since no two situations are alike. Being disciplined at work, laid off, or terminated can be one of the hardest moments in a person’s life. When this happens, you may worry about not being able to make ends meet and support your family.

Our Costa Mesa employment lawyers know how stressful it is to experience trouble in the workplace, and that’s why we treat our clients and their families with the dignity and respect they deserve. Smith & Lo believes in offering personal attention to every client to do what is necessary to secure rightful compensation.
