If you work in L.A. County, and haven’t been paid fairly by your employer, our aggressive attorneys will fight for compensation.
Both California state laws and federal laws regarding payment for labor are in place to protect employees from being taken advantage of by employers. However, just because these laws exist does not mean that employers always follow them. Occasionally, employers may simply misunderstand the laws; other times, they intentionally avoid paying their employees what they deserve in order to keep more profit in their own pockets. In either scenario, the employees are victims of wage theft and deserve to be compensated for the wages they rightfully earned!Recovering this compensation can be an uphill battle. Most employers aren’t willing to admit wrongdoing or to give wronged employees full backpay. Since employers have most of the power in this dynamic, if you suspect that you weren’t paid correctly, you need an advocate on your side who can stand up for your legal rights and recover the wages you should have been paid in the first place. The Los Angeles wage & hour lawyers at Southern California Attorneys, A.P.C., will relentlessly pursue justice for you. Even if you are undocumented or don’t have the ability to pay legal fees, our attorneys can still help you. Call today to schedule a free and completely confidential consultation with our team!
How can you tell if you are a victim of wage theft?
There are many ways that employers can underpay their Los Angeles employees. A few of the most common instances of wage theft include:
Why should you work with our Los Angeles wage & hour lawyers?
If your employer isn’t paying you correctly, they are stealing from you. They are stealing money that you have worked hard for. They are stealing your chance at seizing financial opportunities. They are stealing your ability to build up financial security and provide fully for your family. That’s not right, and you deserve justice! Many people in your shoes tend to avoid hiring a lawyer because they either don’t believe their claim is worth that much, they are in the country illegally, they are scared to be fired, they don’t believe that they have the financial means to retain legal representation, or they believe it will be easiest to bring a claim against their employer themselves. None of those reasons should stop you from calling our law firm! Here’s why…If you suspect that you have been underpaid, even if not by that much, it is likely there are other areas in which you have been underpaid that you have not yet noticed. Your claim may be worth more than you think, and our attorneys can help you calculate its value! If you are in the country illegally, you still are protected under wage & hour laws; you don’t have to settle for less than fair pay, and attorney privilege means that you can discuss your case honestly with us without fear of deportation. Your employer is legally forbidden to retaliate against you in any way for taking legal action, so you don’t have to be afraid of being fired. If you win your case, most courts will order employers to pay attorney fees for you. Our Los Angeles wage & hours lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, so you never pay our fees upfront! And filing a legal claim against your employer can be a time-consuming, confusing process. Working with our lawyers gives you the best chances at recovering the maximum amount of compensation possible with the least amount of effort and stress on your part!

When I contacted and asked the attorney for some advice, I immediately felt a great sense of unconditional support, and found the office environment to be very peaceful with a very professional front desk and staff. I appreciate all his help and heartwarming support. Thank you so much.
We were fortunate enough to get in contact with the attorneys: we had a water leak in our house and homeowner insurance was not helpful. From the moment we met with Russell, we knew right away that we are in good hands. He took his time to go with us over the issues that we had with insurance. He was very understanding and patient, every week he gave us updates on the progress, show us that he really cares about our situation. He went above and beyond to make sure that we will get full compensation. We are very grateful for what he has done for us. He did an amazing job!!! I would definitely recommend this law firm to anyone in need.
I can’t put into words how grateful I am to have been referred to this amazing firm. I have had an issue haunting me for so long and today the attorney gave me my first sigh of relief in years! He was completely present throughout our entire conversation and I truly felt that he genuinely cared. He went out of his way to provide valuable information and made sure to answer all the questions I had. I’d definitely recommend them to anyone looking for genuine, and professional attorneys!
