Helping Small Businesses With Employment Law
The Akopyan Law Firm A.P.C. helps local mom-and-pop businesses navigate the complexities of employment law and avoid legal problems whenever possible to do so. When an opponent unreasonably refuses to settle, and insists on forcing litigation to create leverage, our experienced and talented employment lawyers will aggressively, strategically, and efficiently litigate the case to persuade the opponent to accept a reasonable settlement. We stand ready to try any employment case but understand that in most situations avoiding a trial is in the client’s best financial interest.
Helping Mom-and-Pop Businesses Avoid Legal Problems
The law in California which governs the relationship between employers and employees is complex, and ever changing. Even the biggest employers routinely run afoul of their obligations, notwithstanding the fact that they have virtually limitless resources and legions of lawyers. It is that much harder for a mom-and-pop operation with limited resources to comply with the vast and overwhelming body of employment law. If you are looking for employment attorneys in Burbank, Glendale, or Los Angeles, our experienced employment law attorneys are a phone call away. Law attorneys are a phone call away.
Securing Early Resolution To Avoid The Expense of Litigation
An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. This notion is especially true when it comes to employment law. When mom-and-pop employers face potentially problematic situations involving employees, we advise and counsel them through the situation by explaining the employer’s legal obligations and suggesting an approach for dealing with the situation at hand within the confines of the law. We lay out all the different options available to the small business and explain both the pros and cons of each option so that the employer can make an informed and intelligent decision as to what is the best way of dealing with the situation. Proper preparation, counseling, and advice can substantially reduce the chances of employment law problems arising in the future, or growing into something much bigger.
If you are in Burbank, Glendale, or Los Angeles finding the best employment attorney in Los Angeles for your case may not be easy. If you wish to speak directly with an employment lawyer personally, contact the Akopyan Law Firm and speak to one of our employment attorneys about your case. Each of our labor and employment lawyers has over a decade of experience in employment law and is ready to speak with you directly about your specific situation.
Effectively Litigating Cases In An Efficient and Productive Manner
Unlike most lawyers who work in huge employer-side law firms, the attorneys at the Akopyan Law Firm, A.P.C. are not under any pressure from anyone to produce any billable hours. Far too often small employers who are sued for violating employment laws will hire expensive multinational law firms, thinking that a widely recognized name puts them in a better strategic position. In some cases that may be true (like for example when insurance is paying for the defense) but in many other cases it is not. Employers who are self-funding litigation will often discover within just a few short billing cycles that big law comes at a big price. Lawyers at many big firms are required to produce a certain number of billable hours, and the obligation to generate revenue for their firm may not always be consistent with the goal of getting their client out of a case as early and economically as possible.
The goal of the labor lawyers at the Akopyan Law Firm is to achieve the best possible outcome for each client. In most cases this means securing an early settlement for a reasonable amount to stop incurring the substantial fees and costs associated with litigation. If early resolution is not possible, then we will devise a strategic plan of action to help an opponent better understand the weaknesses in their case and adjust expectations consistent with the realities of any given case.
Going to Trial When There Is No Alternative
Unfortunately, there are some cases that simply have to be tried. Unlike many lawyers who prefer to avoid trial, the employment lawyers at the Akopyan Law Firm stand ready to put on a case before a jury whenever it becomes necessary for them to do so.
Our commitment to performing quality work on every case requires us to limit our practice to a certain number of cases, but every small business that becomes our client is treated like family. We are proud of the first class personal service we provide, but we do not want you to take our word for it – See what our clients have to say! The relationships we build with our clients often outlast the life of the case. Our employment lawyers fight passionately for our clients as confirmed by the excellent results they have achieved.
