Employment Law Office Of Frank Pray

Employment Law Office Of Frank Pray

Admitted to the CA Bar in 1977, and a continuously practicing litigator for 36 years, I am a dedicated advocate "for the little guy" in obtaining justice for persons fired, laid off, harassed or demoted because of discrimination or whistleblowing.

Firm Overview

I am a sole practitioner who provides personal and client-focused service to obtain the best outcomes possible. I graduated from a top ABA accredited law school [The University of San Diego], and have advanced my legal education with 2 additional years of business management at the UCLA Anderson Executive MBA program.

I have tried numerous cases in court and arbitration, as well as numerous mediations. I am active in my local bar association [Orange County CA] and held the position of Section "Chair" for the "Labor and Employment Law" Section of the Orange County Bar Ass'n in 2011. I am a member of the Gray Inn of Court, an organization of local judges and attorneys seeking the highest levels of competency and ethics in the profession. I am also a long standing member of the California Labor and Employment Lawyers Association and participate actively in its local Orange County Chapter.

For the last 20 years of my career I have limited my practice to representing employees who are crushed or cast away by an unfeeling corporate machinery simply because it can. I take pride in holding corporations accountable for the actions of its managers, and obtaining justice for employees through expert knowledge of the law.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Our primary area of practice is California and Federal Employment Law. We represent employees exclusively for damages related to discrimination, retaliation, wage & hour, defamation, assault/battery, and privacy violations. We are interested in potential "Private Attorney General Act" cases representing numerous employees as a group.

Employment Law Attorney Frank Pray came to this area of practice in 1993 when hired by a California employment law firm. He quickly discovered that his heart was in the practice, and that he was a "natural" Plaintiff's attorney, who enjoyed the affirmative burden of proving a case by creative thinking and aggressive efforts. The law is best when it "levels the field" for the little guy.

I grew up in Southern Illinois is a small farming village. Our values were solid and we were taught responsibility and hard work. My parents were blue collar people who dreamed for a better future for their son. I was the first to attend college and certainly, going to Law School exceeded all expectations. I remain grateful and humbled at my good fortune.

I moved to California in 1974 to attend the University of San Diego School of Law, and graduated in 1977, and that same year, passed the bar. I have practiced in nearly every state and federal court in Southern California during my almost 40 years of litigation practice. Over half of my career has been totally committed to employment law, representing employees exclusively.

I now live in Orange County, California, where I have maintained my solo law practice since 1996.
