A California Employment Advocacy Lawyer Will Help Resolve Employment Matters
Employment law involves the massive compilation of statutory laws, administrative rulings, and legal precedents which cover all facets of the employer/employee relationship. Whether you are an executive or an hourly employee, a California employment advocacy attorney from our firm can help you resolve whatever employment issues you may be facing.
At Macías Rodríguez Adams LLP, we realize that it can be confusing and overwhelming. Most employees in California are employed on an at-will basis, which means that you can be terminated for a good reason, a bad reason, or no reason at all. On the other hand, numerous federal and state laws protect employees from discrimination, harassment, wage and hour violations, and other forms of illegal employer conduct. Our attorneys believe that all employees deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. They deserve a working environment where their legal rights are honored and protected. As such, we work hard to zealously advocate for the rights of the select employees our firm chooses to represent.
Our firm specializes in litigation. However, our work also involves representing business executives in negotiating various employment agreements, such as employment contracts, compensation, stock plans, severance agreements, and non-compete and non-solicitation agreements. In other words, we can fight if we have to, but we also have the business savvy to negotiate sophisticated agreements for our clients.
What is a California Employment Advocacy Lawyer?
At Macías Rodríguez Adams LLP, we believe that words, especially names, are important. We carefully consider our client’s needs and the services we provide, so we chose a name that reflects what we envision our representation to be.
A California employment advocacy attorney can identify potential issues and explain your rights. They can help you navigate the state and federal legal framework that governs your issue. We also provide those services, but we wanted to emphasize that we are on your side, focused on protecting your rights and growing your interests. When you work with our firm, you don’t get just another employment lawyer—you get a California employment advocacy attorney who is dedicated to your success.
While our specialty is employment litigation, we believe that our experience as litigators helps us be highly effective advocates for our clients outside the courtroom. We know the boundaries and are willing to go to court to protect our clients’ rights. As your advocate, we readily serve our clients in the following ways:
- By identifying immediate and potential issues, both legal and practical
- By negotiating agreements with a singular focus in your interests
- By resolving conflicts in your favor as quickly as possible and with an emphasis on cost-effectiveness
In short, we hope to communicate that you never have to wonder who your lawyer represents. When you work with a California employment advocacy lawyer from our firm, you have someone dedicated to getting you the best results.
Who We Work With
We believe everyone from the c-suite to part-time team members deserves quality legal representation to protect the rights guaranteed by state and federal law. As a result, our goal at Macías Rodríguez Adams LLP is to offer a full complement of employee and executive-side legal services. This can include everything from assisting in an advisory position to negotiating and resolving disputes to full-blown litigation. Whatever your needs may be, a California employment advocacy lawyer from our firm can help.
For hourly and salaried employees, a California employment advocacy attorney from our firm can help with the following types of cases:
- Wage disputes, including unpaid overtime, commissions, and benefits

- Paystub violations
- Employment discrimination
- Meal and rest break violations

We know how hard it can be to take the first step to get help. You are not alone, and whatever issue you may be facing, other employees are likely facing it as well. In many situations, employees are worried that taking steps to protect themselves may mean losing their job. And for most workers, losing their job becomes an immediate financial crisis. For these reasons, we offer free initial consultations that are completely confidential. We can review your issue, determine whether you have a claim, and take immediate steps to protect your rights.
It is a mistake to assume that every employment issue is the same regardless of industry. However, approaching every issue without considering the industry is a recipe for mediocre results. That’s why we take the time to understand the industries in which our clients work. This helps us provide highly-personalized legal representation that focuses on the best possible results for your unique issue. We represent clients across a broad spectrum of industries, including the following:
- Food and Beverage
- Health Care
- Financial Services and Banking
Of course, being based in Silicon Valley, we have extensive experience representing employees and executives in the tech and manufacturing industries. We also are very familiar with the employment issues that can arise in the emerging tech and startup environments.
