Employee Rights

We literally wrote the book on defending the rights of employees and consumers through California class action lawsuits.

For over 25 years, Cohelan Khoury & Singer has represented plaintiffs in complex California litigation in San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Francisco, Alameda, and Sacramento counties, emphasizing labor and employment, overtime labor laws, overtime class actions, consumer, antitrust, and public interest cases.

Consumer Rights

Lawyers at our firm can help you with consumer fraud complaints in order to seek compensation for corrupt, fraudulent, or negligent business practices that may have caused you harm.  We take on cases involving privacy rights, false advertising, and unfair business practices to name a few.

If you’ve been injured or otherwise wronged by a company, you might not be alone. A consumer class action lawyer will know if your complaint is grounds for a class action suit. 

How Can We Help You?

We have obtained settlements for over 1,000,000 workers across the country for claims under labor law guidelines, including:

If you believe your current or former employer owes you wages for any reason, you may be entitled to overtime or back wages going back four years.

Judicial Respect: “In the highest tradition of pro bono service to the community, they [plaintiffs' counsel] have waived that right [to attorney's fees]. It is so commendable that their interests in the community so override their personal financial interest that they would voluntarily, not under compulsion, and not under the court's suggestion, that they would voluntarily say ‘we waive our right to attorney's fees’. How marvelous that you would do so.” — Hon. William McCurine, Jr., United States Magistrate Judge Spencer v. City of San Diego, No. 04CV-2314-BEN(WMC), February 21, 2007.

“I have seen no similar indication of a public service rendered by any group of lawyers in all the years that I have practiced law myself which is for 38 or the 27 years that I have been on the bench.” — Hon. Milton Pollack, Senior United States District Court Judge, Bailey v. Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield, et al. MDL Docket No. 902 (S.D.N.Y.)
