Proven Employment Law Representation for California Workers

Since 1997, Kingsley Szamet & Ly Employment Lawyers (previously Kingsley & Kingsley) has been fighting for employee rights throughout the state of California. Our team has recovered more than three hundred million dollars in settlements and verdicts on behalf of employees whose rights have been violated. These cases have ranged from sexual harassment to wage and hour violations, wrongful termination, workplace discrimination, retaliation, and other employment law violations.

California employment laws have been put into place to protect employees but the laws do not enforce themselves. As an employee, you need help from a professional employment law firm to hold your employers accountable, get the protection you need from unforeseen threats to your financial and employment well-being, and guidance when facing current challenges.

At our firm, our Los Angeles employment law team has been putting their clients first since the moment they started accepting clients. We are widely-respected for our proven results which has led to consistent referrals from satisfied clients and other law firms. Our Managing Partner, Attorney Eric Kingsley, has been listed in the Daily Journal as a top California employment lawyer. We bring exceptional competence to your employment case in an open, helpful, and approachable environment designed to put you at ease when under the stress of the legal process.

Serving Clients Throughout the State of California

Employment Law Cases in Los Angeles

Employment law is an area governed by many statutes at both the state and federal levels. This practice area generally involves the relationship between employers and employees with a strong emphasis on protecting employee rights. These laws cover everything from hours and wages to benefits, contracts, workplace discrimination, safety, all forms of harassment, and all other aspects of hiring, training, termination, and more.

Unfortunately, most California employers don't really care about those they hire to run their businesses. Exceptions occur but employers often do not "step up to the plate" and do the right thing. When you speak with one of our California employment law attorneys, you won't be speaking to someone who doesn't really care about you or your circumstance. You can count on us to treat you as we would treat our friends and family. We will fight tirelessly to help ensure your case is tenaciously pursued, your future is secured, and your needs are met.

Liane Katzenstein Ly is an extraordinary attorney that provided me with extraordinary results. Everyone I communicated with at the office was very professional, sensitive, and responsive. Kingsley Szamet & Ly Employment Lawyers did not miss a step in my case from the time I picked up the phone to their client intake process on through my settlement agreement. Unfortunately, I have had to deal with attorneys in my past. Kingsley is in a category of their own when it comes to communication and care. What I appreciated the most during my experience with them was their integrity. Their lawyers listened carefully to all of the details of my case and asked me very important questions. The lawyers here ensure you know that you are essential to them. I cannot say enough good things about these employment Lawyers. I highly recommend Mrs Katsenstein Ly to anyone who is experiencing difficulties with their employer or workplace in general. You can place your faith in their expertise.
