Looking for an Employment Lawyer?

At Gallagher Krich, APC, we counsel businesses, independent contractors and employees about California employment laws, employment agreements, compensation disputes, sexual harassment and wrongful termination.

Business owner? We’ll handle the busy work so you can get back to work.

Starting your business on the right foot means starting it right with your employees. We have experienced and knowledgeable lawyers to support you to fully comply with the human resources policies and practices. Our counselors can take care of these daunting HR forms and procedures for you.

We can start our work from business HR policies, be there for day-to-day advice and also defend you in the court in the event of an employee lawsuit. We can set up or tune up all your HR policies and practices — and even help counsel on whether your workers should be classified as contractors or employees under California law (AB5). 

Recruitment and selection

We provide direct support and prepare the HR forms for legal compliance, on issues such as:

  • Pre-employment inquiries
  • Job applications
  • Background and reference checks & consents
  • Drug test policy
  • Offer letters

Backed by our counselors, we set up the required records for management and training, and we help you professionally manage your disciplinary and leave policies. We make sure you comply with the latest legislation for the process of employee evaluation and performance review.

Legal representation

Through our services of setting up and tuning up your human resources policies and practices, we mitigate risks as much as possible. However, the risk of lawsuits is always there. Sometimes, you do not even have to do something wrong to get called in court by a current or former employee or by a candidate for one of your vacancies. We are here for those moments too. We provide full representation and litigation services for employment & labor law.If you have been sued already and need immediate representation, contact us right away! Once we fix the problem, then we can also work on tuning up your HR policies and procedures to decrease the chance of another employee lawsuit.

We had the pleasure of speaking with Troy for a contractor issue we had recently. He is smart, patient, empathetic and basically the lawyer we would want to be our side for (may God forbids) any legal assistance or battle we need! The interaction we had with him was “free of charge” but we already felt his dedication and concern (he took the time to reach out and follow up on how he can assist us further) which busy lawyers would normally ask their admin or assistant to do so on their behalf. We will be sure to contact again Troy, if need be! Thank you!!

I left a voicemail for Tom late Sunday evening and received a phone call first thing the next morning.

Tom was very quick to reply to any questions I had, and if he was caught up in a meeting, he was sure to return my call promptly.

Tom provided sound and logical advice, during a very stressful and uncertain time. At times I asked him to be more aggressive and was often met with the pros and cons of that decision, allowing me to understand the approach and thought process behind his strategy.

Ultimately he provided options for several paths for us to take, worked swiftly, and got us where we needed to be.

He reached out several times to check on my sanity and make sure I was good.

As someone with very high expectations, I would highly recommend his services. He provided expertise that proved to be successful, and also took the time to make sure I was emotionally solid.

Tom assisted with me with a 50% / 50% ownership conflict.

i liked that a lawyer, and not a staff member, called me to get the details and he gave me his opinion of what his initial thoughts are about my case.

What was thought to be a simple breach of contract turned into a nightmare. Through their tenacity and their deep knowledge of the law, we were successful. There is no reason to look any further as you will not get any better representation than this firm. I highly recommend them and strongly suggest that if you are considering starting a business or are already managing one, this firm will guide you, avoiding the troubled waters businesses sometimes find themselves in.

Johnny Nitti helped us with our estate plan. He was very meticulous while drafting the plan and spent enough time to explain the details to us. He filed the deed with county recorder and paid for the fees himself. Overall, Johnny did a great job and we definitely plan to work with him in the future for any updates to our EP.
