Eric Kingsley, partner at Kingsley and Kingsley Lawyers, has been recognized as a top labor and employment lawyer of 2021 by the Daily Journal. Mr. Kingsley and his employment law firm have helped recover over $300 Million dollars for California workers who have had their rights violated by their employers.
Kingsley and Kingsley Lawyers have received numerous distinctions for providing superior representation. The firm itself has been listed as the number one employment law firm in Los Angeles on Expertise.com for two years in a row, but Mr. Kingsley is especially proud of the Daily Journal's top labor and employment lawyer distinction.
“At Kingsley and Kingsley, we fight every day to help ensure workers throughout the state of California are not subject to abuse and theft by their employers. We safeguard their rights and litigate their claims to recover the compensation they have earned by their hard work. Every award, distinction, and acknowledgement that myself, my partners, and my team are doing a great job is extremely rewarding.”
“Receiving recognition from a publication like the Daily Journal is an honor,” said Mr. Kingsley. “The attorneys on the Daily Journal list are an accomplished group, and I'm grateful to be listed among them. Our victory in Kim v. Reins at the California Supreme Court last year not only helped my client, but the workforce of the entire state of California, as well as the enforcement agencies within the state that seek to establish employer compliance with the Labor Code.”
Mr. Kingsley has litigated complex cases and authored numerous appellate briefs in both state and federal court, including over 300 class actions. Mr. Kingsley concentrates his practice on wage and hour litigation and is currently handling several class actions regarding the failure to pay wages, including overtime and the denial of break or meal periods. In addition to wage and hour litigation, Mr. Kingsley handles the claims of individuals who have been wrongfully terminated or sexually harassed in the workplace.
Mr. Kingsley is a speaker at various seminars on employment law and is a contributor to the Daily Journal on issues affecting the California legal community.
In addition to his work with the firm, Mr. Kingsley dedicates his time to several non-profit organizations, advising them on legal and practical issues.
The Daily Journal conducts a selective nomination process to honor the top labor and employment lawyers in the state each year and publishes the list every July.
