Los Angeles Wrongful Termination Lawyer

California Wrongful Discharge Attorney

In most states, employment is considered to be "at will." This means that your employer can let you go for almost any reason, as long as it is not in violation of the law or in breach of a valid employment contract. When your employer does engage in a wrongful firing, you want an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer to protect your interests, someone who has represented others in similar situations.

At the Law Offices of Ronald P. Ackerman, I have focused my practice on employment law issues since opening my firm nearly 20 years ago, representing employees throughout Los Angeles and California. As a former Federal employee, I have extensive knowledge of the unique issues Federal employees face. I also advocate for state, municipal and private company workers. In two decades in practice, I have represented hundreds of clients in hearings before such agencies as the EEOC, the Merit Systems Protection Board and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), as well as in state and federal courts.

I understand the anxiety that comes with the loss of your job. When you hire me to help you challenge a wrongful discharge, you will work directly with me at all times.

Representation in Wrongful Termination Cases

I handle all matters related to wrongful discharge claims. I will carefully gather and evaluate all relevant evidence, reviewing all appropriate documents and interviewing or deposing all potential witnesses. I will prepare and file your complaint, as well as any other documents required by the court or necessary to prepare and present the most effective case for your financial recovery. I will also represent you in all hearings or proceedings with administrative agencies or in the courts.

I represent clients who face wrongful termination based on:

  • Violation of the terms of a valid employment contract
  • Violation of state or federal law, or of public policy, such as retaliatory discharge or discriminatory firing

I also handle cases involving "constructive termination," where your employer engages in illegal conduct that makes your work environment so intolerable that you are forced to quit, rather than continue being exposed to it.
