Accomplished California Lawyer Advocates for Victims of Wrongful Termination

Experienced Stockton attorney seeks justice for clients who were fired unlawfully

Losing a job can have devastating consequences for you and your family. When the firing violates the law or a contractual agreement, prompt legal action is necessary to obtain appropriate relief. At Law Offices of Mark S. Adams, our employment attorney has obtained strong results for wrongful termination victims in Stockton and throughout California. We have extensive knowledge of the federal and California laws that govern relationships between workers and employers. If you’ve been dismissed from your job and suspect that something improper or illegal occurred, our firm offers the highest levels of legal representation and service.

Knowledgeable litigator handles discrimination and contractual claims

In many cases, employers seek to use at-will employment rules to protect themselves from legal liability. This doctrine allows a business to fire workers without providing any justification. However, certain types of dismissals are prohibited under law. We represent California workers in wrongful termination cases involving:

  • Discrimination. A firing cannot be based on an employee’s membership in a legally protected group. We are strong advocates in matters involving discriminatory firings that arise from a worker’s age, sex, race, religion, ethnicity, disability or other characteristics outlined in federal statutes. We can also advise you of claims that might exist under state law.
  • Retaliation. Employees should never be punished for reporting illegal conduct or dangerous conditions at their workplace. If you’re a whistleblower who has been fired, we will investigate if any connection exists between your report and your termination. We can uncover the true motivation for a dismissal even if your employer tries to invent another reason for your firing.
  • Contractual violations. Whether an agreement covers an individual employee or a whole group of workers, companies must honor the provisions relating to termination. Our diligent attorney can review the relevant contract and take action against your former employer if they failed to abide by the terms of the agreement when releasing you.

Whatever type of work you do, our diligent lawyer will take the time to learn each relevant detail of your situation. From there, we will explain your options and seek fair compensation and other available relief before government boards such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and in court.

  • "FANTASTIC AND I WILL TELL YOU WHYMark has been my lawyer for two separate cases. When the second work related incident occurred, I didn’t hesitate to call Mark.Mark is very sensitive to issues that need a soft touch. Going through what I was I did not want an out of touch in-compassionate lawyer. I appreciated his approach.He always “showed up”. Emails were sent and received promptly, he was always easy to get a hold of and most importantly never said he was going to do anything he didn’t do. I never felt like I was “just another client”Lastly, his experience was extensive. He communicated in a way that was easy to understand. I didn't have to deal with the legal jargon as with other lawyers." - Jessica 09/06/17
