Job Details

IC Employment / Labor Attorney Lawyer Representing Employers

Company name

5 yrs required

Irvine, CA, United States

Employment Type


Posted on
Nov 25,2019



We are a law firm.  We deliver expert HR legal solutions simply to successful small and medium businesses (SMBs) to eliminate their employee lawsuit risk.  When employers are sued, we provide world class representation at unparalleled value. SMBs are underrepresented and ignored by large law firms. They lack access to world class legal advice. They live on the edge of legal disaster every day. They need our help.


World Class Representation for SMBs
“World class” legal representation is generally associated with big firms. As we all know, it depends on the individual attorney. SMBs cannot afford the $700-900+ per hour price tag (most of which is for overhead, staff, and partner profits).

We provide world class advice and representation to SMBs at a price they can afford – and without the big firm overhead, politics and pressure.

We do so through a team of highly motivated, passionate, and independent lawyers who fight for small/medium business. Our lawyers must be experienced and know what they are doing. They do not want to be an employee, but want to collaborate with us to provide world class employment and labor legal advice and representation, make money and reap the rewards of a flexible lifestyle.

Our business model is specifically designed to deliver world class solutions to SMBs while being fun and profitable for the attorneys we work with.

Efficiency & Innovation
A lawyer cannot deliver world class lawyering to SMBs at a price they can afford without extreme efficiency. Our unique business model only works with highly competent, knowledgeable, technologically proficient and experienced lawyers.

Technology allows us to operate without staff, eliminate physical overhead, gain advantage over our competition, and work anywhere anytime.

We are more profitable by using less.

Results & Cost/Benefit
Our clients are entrepreneurs and business owners. They expect value for their money.

High value representation is the name of the game. Clients gladly pay us when we proactively achieve optimal results in their best interests cost effectively.

That’s how we obtain and retain long-term clients. We know if we help enough SMBs get what they want, our lawyers will have everything they want.

Freedom & Independence
Our lawyers have the freedom to work from anywhere. They are independent business owners. We help them build a book of business and achieve personal financial success.

Our lawyers are responsible for all client work. Our lawyers are accountable only to our Core Values and the client. Our clients define a job well done.

Our target market (SMBs with 25-300 employees/workers) far outstrips the supply of qualified lawyers. This bodes well for qualified lawyers who wish to join our network and adhere to our Core Values.

Core Values

  • We Do the Right Thing – We are ethical, loyal, honest, trustworthy, professional and do what is right. We do not work with clients/colleagues who do not act in accordance with the same values.
  • We Are Trustworthy – clients, colleagues and others can count on us to get things done on time and in their best interests.
  • We Are Proactive – we are present, aware, available, anticipate, plan, follow up, execute, communicate constantly, and take full responsibility for all outcomes.
  • We Care – We are passionate about our work and demonstrate that through our conduct; we put ourselves in our client’s shoes and go the extra mile.
  • We Are World Class Lawyers – We know the law; we apply it strategically, creatively and efficiently to achieve optimal results and blow our clients’ minds.
  • We Are Champions of Small Business & Technology – We are passionate about small business and fight for them; we maximize technology for efficiency and competitive advantage.


We are always looking to collaborate with world class attorneys in one of two ways:

  • Advice Attorneys who want to develop an advice-oriented client base using our unique business model.
  • Litigation/Trial Attorneys to deliver world class litigation and trial representation without the client development work.

Minimum Qualifications:

Experience – 10,000 hours/5 years full time employment and labor law experience representing employers. Substantial client relations/management experience required.

Exceptional work/educational background – typically significant “big firm” experience, though anyone who feels they have exceptional background or experience will be considered, and for litigators, substantial experience in and responsibility for all facets/stages of litigation and trial.

Client responsibility – substantial experience in handling client relations with positive results. Ability to communicate/interact with/manage small/medium business owners is a must (we’re not dealing with in house counsel or HR Directors for Fortune 500 companies; we’re dealing with individual owners most of the time). This model works only for those attorneys with great people skills who have managed client relationships. We are not looking for “worker bees.” We are looking for attorneys who successfully manage themselves and others (in this case the client decision makers).

Employment and Labor law subject matter expertise – either employment and labor law has been/is your focus or you have enough experience with it that you know all material aspects of the law (state and federal), including:

  • Wage and hour law – must have the CA Labor Code memorized (just kidding!).  But in all seriousness, about 80% of what we do relates to policies and advice to prevent wage claims or defending such claims in court or before the DLSE, including PAGA and class actions, independent contractor status (AB5/Dynamex), exempt status, AB 1513, SB 490, rest/meal periods, alternative workweeks, LC 203, 226 etc.)
  • Independent Contractor v. Employee Status
  • HR Compliance (required forms/onboarding/separation)
  • Employee Handbooks
  • Leaves of Absence (and advising/managing re same)
  • Discrimination & Harassment
  • Disability Interactive Process and Reasonable Accommodation
  • Workplace Investigations
  • Wrongful Termination/Retaliation
  • Privacy
  • Defamation
  • Administrative Audits and/or Proceedings (DLSE, DOL, DFEH, EEOC, EDD, CUIAB)
  • Trade Secrets
  • Arbitration
  • If we’re missing anything big, shame on us and you pass muster


  • Freedom & Independence – Work whenever wherever (there is no office to commute to other than your home office unless you prefer working elsewhere).
  • Marketing System – We have a proven internet-based model for client acquisition.
  • Just Work/No Networking or Marketing – We send work to you, or if you are interested, you can take inbound client leads and build a clientele.
  • Collaborate – With lawyers who adhere to the Core Values and deliver world class representation.
  • Unique Business Model – Designed to provide great value to our clients and for predictable incoming cash flow to our lawyers.
  • HR Systems – We have HR Infrastructure and HR Forms to help clients avoid employee issues and reduce risk.
  • Passion and Focus – We are passionate and focused. We don’t practice “door law.”  We focus on employment and labor law for small business.
  • Technology – Collaborate with an electronic HR compliance and e-sign solution vendor.
  • Change the Legal World – Help an under-served market: SMBs, as a real lawyer (not a consultant or online non-lawyer business).
  • Capture a Huge Market – According to the US SBA there are 30.7 M SMBs with <500 employees in the US as of 2019 (4M in California); your growth potential is likewise huge.


  • Those looking for a job, fixed salary, or guarantees
  • Those who are not expert (or at least extremely knowledgeable) on all material facets of employment and labor law as noted above
  • Those who need to be directed/who are not proactive
  • Those without substantial experience advising employer decision makers
  • Those who are looking for a “traditional” law firm


  • Independent, entrepreneurial and success minded/oriented attorneys
  • Attorneys who see the SMB need and who are passionate about filling it
  • Solo or small firms with excess capacity looking for ways to grow clients/revenues
  • Current big firm lawyer, been thinking of leaving the firm, and looking for freedom, a life, opportunity (but not a job), and still practice quality law
  • Former big firm lawyer, on their own, looking to collaborate/for work
  • Those who are open to a new way of delivering legal services
  • Those who are hungry, humble and smart
