Stephen Danz and Associates is California's major state-wide employee-only law firm with attorneys and offices throughout the state. The main office is in Brentwood (Los Angeles). We also have offices in Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Pasadena, Irvine, San Diego (Mission Valley and Carlsbad), Fresno, and the firm has a presence in San Bernardino, Sacramento, San Francisco, Santa Rosa, and the Bay Area. Each client is represented by an experienced associate who handles the day to day work associated with each case, and by Steve Danz himself who serves as senior attorney on the case.
Our reputation as litigators means employers take us seriously. We generally file our lawsuits immediately instead of wasting your time with endless "settlement demand" letters. As it takes about a year to resolve most of our cases through the courts (or if you have signed a binding arbitration agreement), we like to get the clock running and keep the defendants under pressure.
Once the lawsuit is filed, discovery requests will pour out of our office and defendants will be required to produce all documents and witnesses relevant to your lawsuit.
