Legal Services For Employers

Experienced Los Angeles Employer Defense Attorneys

The lawyers at Avila & Shaddow have a reputation for no-nonsense, results-oriented and cost-effective representation. We never lose sight of the fact that the quicker we resolve a problem for you, the quicker you can return to business. Early intervention and resolution of employee complaints can often lead to less time, money and emotions spent on litigation. Knowing how to do the right thing, how to work with an employee to resolve a problem or understanding a company's options in light of the "big picture," can nip claims in the bud, improve morale and layout a road map for the company to follow. If litigation is unavoidable, our experience, assertive approach and past successes will greatly enhance the likelihood of pretrial resolution, as well as post-trial success.
