Discrimination has no place in the work environment. However, workplace discrimination is still unfortunately commonplace. The good news is there are laws in place to help protect workers who have been discriminated against and to hold their employers accountable. If you have been the victim of discrimination at work, you should seek legal guidance from an experienced team of lawyers as soon as possible.
At Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C., our workplace discrimination attorneys have dedicated their legal practice to protecting the rights of employees throughout Southern California. If you believe you are being discriminated against, we are prepared to help you explore your avenues of recovery.

Not every adverse action on the part of employers may constitute discrimination. These cases can be complicated and are often difficult to prove. That is why it is essential that you have committed advocates in your corner who can help you build a strong case.
Nobody should have to endure a hostile work environment. We are here to help protect your rights as an employee. Call our Sherman Oaks office at (888) BURGIS1 to schedule a free initial consultation with our attorneys. You may also contact us online.

Matt helped me out with everything! Ask for Matt! He helped make the process go as smooth as it can possible go. He even helped with legal advice outside the case. He responded within minutes. I would recommend Matt and the firm to everyone. Thanks again!
Michael has shown exceptional litigation skills and has proven to have a high-level understanding of law in complex workers' compensation cases.
