At Agemian Law Group, we take that personally. Our highly experienced Glendale employment law attorneys are ready to passionately defend your legal rights, by winning financial settlements that bring the full weight of justice to bear on your behalf.
Here are just a few of the more common types of California employment law cases we see every month:
Going up against your current or former employer in a legal battle can feel overwhelming or intimidating to take on alone. You might even be wondering if it’s truly possible to make a huge company actually face justice for the mistakes they’ve made. That’s exactly where Vinny and the Agemian Law Group team come in -- as your trusted counsel, we’ll learn every tiny detail about your case, and then fight for you with every ounce of skill and passion we’ve got. We strongly believe in workers’ rights; and we believe that if you have experienced a breach of those rights, you deserve immediate compensation -- and swift justice -- to balance the scales back in your favor. To be clear, there is no company, employer, or organization that scares the Agemian Law Group Team.

We’re sure you have questions -- in fact, you may never have thought that you’d need the help of an attorney before your accident or incident occurred. Agemian Law Group is here to help you make sense of what’s next.
Employers have been mistreating and taking unfair advantage of employees since the dawn of employment. Luckily, we live in a time (and a state) where many powerful laws have been enacted to protect workers from abuse, including:
These pieces of legislation run the gamut from protection from physical harm and safety (OSHA), racial or gender discrimination (Title VII, ADEA), wage concerns (FLSA), family matters (FMLA), and more. The main thing you should take away from this is that there is a robust set of laws put in place to protect you as a worker. You should never think thoughts like “the system is rigged, it’s pointless to fight” -- these misconceptions are not true, in fact it’s quite the opposite. California is a state where the employee arguably has the upper hand, and Agemian Law Group has helped many workers achieve financial compensation for being mistreated under California employment law.
How long do you have? The list of employment policies required in California is quite a long one. Broadly speaking, California labor law is primarily concerned with preventing discrimination, preventing retaliation against employees who are in a protected class, or who bring to light an unlawful practice; California also requires employers to reasonably accommodate pregnancy considerations, pay employees equally regardless of race, gender, age, etc; and to have equitable access to personnel records. These laws, though imperfect, attempt to give Californian workers a shot at a decent standard of vocational happiness and equity, while closing as many unethical employer loopholes as possible.
There are also substantial requirements for California employers concerning minimum wage, hours worked per day, access to meal/rest breaks, appropriate child labor restrictions, benefit accessibility, family leave, and general workplace safety. As you can see, the list of areas covered by California labor law is substantial -- so, if you feel that your rights have been violated as a worker, it is definitely worth a quick chat with an Agemian Law Group attorney to see what your options are.
Simply put, an employment lawyer has mastery of the breadth and depth of California labor law, allowing them to apply our state’s generous worker protections on your behalf, when an employer has not lived up to their end of the bargain. Usually, this results in a significant financial settlement paid to you, the employee, as compensation for the unfair, illegal, and occasionally truly grievous treatment you were subjected to in violation of California employment law.
If you choose an Agemian Law Group employment attorney to represent you, you are gaining a fierce advocate who will tirelessly fight on your behalf to protect your rights and win the financial justice you deserve.
It costs absolutely nothing to have a quick, confidential phone conversation with an Agemian Law Group labor attorney. There is literally no downside to picking up the phone or submitting a website form to see if your unique circumstances could result in a legal victory in your favor. Every day, California employees are winning financial settlements from companies or employers who did not give them the treatment guaranteed as a worker in the Golden State.
If you suspect, at all, that your rights as an employee were violated -- if you feel in your gut that the way you were treated might not be right -- you should call Agemian Law Group as soon as possible to give yourself the best chance at not only winning a substantial financial settlement, but also holding your employer to account for not following the law. This is an important action that can protect others from having the same experience in the future.
No two employment lawsuits are alike, so there’s really no way to answer this question without learning the facts surrounding your unique situation. What we can confidently say is, Agemian Law Group aggressively pursues all cases we take on behalf of our clients. You will feel like a priority, and you will feel like progress is being made on your case every single day.
As a general rule of thumb, 12 months is a reasonable estimate from first phone call to holding the settlement check in your hands; but again, we’ve seen plenty of cases that take less time than that, as well as more time than that. We’ll be able to give you a better estimate once we know all the details of your situation.
While many employment lawsuit settlements end up in the $40,000 to $50,000 range, a full 10% or more of these cases result in a $1 million+ settlement, making employment lawsuits one of the more high-stakes types of lawsuits that take place in California courts each year. Nothing makes the Agemian Law Group team happier than handing that life-changing 7-figure check to our clients.
Wondering what the potential settlement amount might look like in your particular circumstances? Give us a quick call, talk through the details of your situation in a confidential free consultation, and we’ll be able to ballpark what you might be looking at if your litigation is successful.
At Agemian Law Group, if we take your labor law case, we’re confident enough to work it on what’s called contingency. That means that we take 100% of our fees from the settlement you win at the end of the process. If we don’t win you a settlement, you don’t owe us a single dollar.
That’s not the case for all employment law attorneys -- some only work on an hourly basis, which can rack up massive fees and even keep justice out of reach for those who don’t have the means to afford it up-front. At Agemian Law Group, we believe that justice should be available to everyone, regardless of your current financial means, which is why we gladly work on contingency.
