The Watkins Firm has decades of experience protecting business clients when San Diego employers need legal defense for any employment related dispute, agency hearing or lawsuit. Many of our clients have gone into the case feeling that they were not in a strong position or that the Courts might be stacked against them. This is simply not the case. We have achieved outright victory in court for clients who thought the evidence was overwhelmingly against them. This is due to our legal skill, expertise and the high legal bar that must be established for a plaintiff to defeat an employer in many employer defense cases including (but not limited to):
- Sexual Harassment
- Wrongful Termination
- Wage and Hour Issues including Unpaid Overtime
- Misclassification of Employees (Such as Independent Contractors)
- Employee Contract Disputes
- ERISA and Benefits Disputes
As general business counsel, the attorneys at the Watkins Firm help our clients to integrate strategies, practices, policies and procedures to reduce or eliminate their exposure to these claims. We work with clients to develop internal documentation and records keeping to support efforts in defending employee allegations. When San Diego employers need legal defense our experienced litigation team aggressively investigates the facts in the case, as well as the behavior of the principles before, during and after allegations surfaced. We interview critical witnesses including other employees, the management team as well as friends and family members of the accuser.
Social media posts by the employee also provide a wealth of valuable information and insight into the mindset of the employee and the impact (or lack thereof) of the issues at hand on their life. Our lawyers take a unique approach to litigation designed to resolve your case as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. We apply our decades of experience, legal skill and expertise and investigation tactics to help your case to have a positive resolution.
