Representing Individual Clients

Our Approach

Our employment lawyers represent individuals in a wide array employment law matters, including claims of sexual harassment, wrongful termination, discrimination, unpaid wages and overtime, and equal pay violations.

When representing our individual clients, at the outset of any case, we always spend the extra time needed to find out exactly what our clients expect and what their goals are. We map out strategies with our clients in order to facilitate these goals. We make it a top priority to stay in regular communication with our clients throughout their cases in order to insure they are active participants, enhancing the prospects of obtaining top results. This applies to all types of employment and other legal matters, where we have recovered millions of dollars for our clients.

Whatever the nature of your case, you can rely on the trial, litigation and settlement experience of the lawyers at Kaplan Weiss LLP. Not only do our attorneys possess extensive experience as plaintiff’s counsel in employment law, discrimination, civil rights, and consumer litigation, our founding partner has over a decade’s experience serving as defense counsel for corporations and insurance companies at one of California’s largest defense firms, Lewis, Brisbois, Bisgaard & Smith LLP (approximately 800 attorneys nationwide).

Due to our vast experience representing corporations and insurance companies, we understand the intricacies in how to best present your claim to maximize and expedite settlement.
