Wrongful Termination: Not All Job Loss Is Legitimate

With more than four decades of experience, Law Offices of Gary R. Carlin, APC is one of Southern California’s leading employee rights law firms. Our lawyers are experienced negotiators and litigators who will vigorously advocate for employees who have been wrongfully discharged from their jobs.
