Summary

With over twenty years of experience predominantly representing employers in workplace-related labor and employment matters, both at large and small boutique law firms, as well as, in-house, Lisa Sherman has set out to redefine legal representation in California. Sherman Law Corporation has replaced the inefficient and ineffective traditional law firm pyramid model with a lean, collaborative client-centric labor and employment practice aimed at personal service, unfiltered analysis, and strategic, cost-effective resolutions . With 1 out of 2 California employers facing employment-related claims alleging violations of California's complex employee-friendly laws potentially exposing employers to significant liability, attorneys' fees and costs, now more than ever, California employers need personalized counseling and strategic representation to protect their businesses. While Sherman Law Corporation's services include audits for legal compliance, creating and updating workplace policies, practices, processes, training, and workplace investigations, the vast majority of its time is devoted to counseling on everyday workplace issues and representation in employment litigation and legal actions before administrative agencies, state and federal courts, and in alternative dispute resolution (i.e. mediation, arbitration and/or direct negotiations to resolve potential or ongoing claims). Why Sherman Law Corporation? "Because the workplace is complex enough...." We encourage you to call us at (213) 341-4417 for a free initial consultation.
