Los Angeles Wage & Hour Violations Attorneys
We Will Fight to Recover Compensation for Your Hard Work
The state of California has numerous strict laws that protect employees from unfair wage and hour practices, such as forcing workers to work through unpaid meal breaks or working unpaid overtime. Although these laws are intended to make sure vulnerable employees are not taken advantage of by unscrupulous employers, some employers are crafty and make it difficult to identify when they violate the law. Additionally, employees are sometimes afraid to speak up about their mistreatment because they fear they will lose their job or face other forms of retaliation.
That is why our fierce legal advocates at Azadegan Law Group, APC are committed to using our superior legal skills and knowledge of the law to help workers throughout Los Angeles fight for the justice they deserve in the workplace. Whether your boss frequently asks you to stay beyond your scheduled shift to work extra hours without being compensated, or your employer refuses to hand over your final paycheck, we can walk you through all of your options under the law and help you find the right solution.

We live with our client’s case. We listen, we think, we believe, we strategize creatively, we prepare, and we try. We develop a very close relationship with our clients and with our cases. We make sure that the jury will be able to see and feel our real and deep emotional connection with our cases and our commitment to our client. Our goal in a trial is not to “tell” our client’s story to the jury, rather, it is to “show” the jury the truth.
Focus Groups and Mock Jury Trials
When warranted, we use focus groups and conduct mock jury trials so we can better evaluate the emotional connection between the facts of the case and the jury. By doing so, we refine our strategy to be able to present a more powerful case to the jury.
We are a litigation firm first and foremost, ready to deal with any substantive or procedural legal challenge at every turn. We are equipped with state-of-the-art research and communication technologies that enable us to research every legal issue thoroughly and make ourselves readily available to our clients. In order to resolve each case as quickly and favorably as possible for each client, we litigate aggressively, while always tailoring our strategy to each client’s needs and goals. We explore every procedural angle and make every necessary motion to win the case or expedite the most favorable settlement possible.
Discovering the Story
Everything in life has a story. The “truth,” without a well thought out story, is not believed nor is it effective. We believe that understanding and feeling the core of the client’s story is the key to understanding the “truth” and formulating a powerful story to present to the jury. So, we spend tens of hours listening to the client’s story, and in many cases we use re-enactment techniques to be able to “see” the story. We explore the feelings, motivations and pressures behind every party in every case. That enables us to acquire a deeper understanding of our cases.
