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

The firm believes that employees should have a level playing field and that individual employees have rights against both small and large companies. Many times employers think they can bully or intimidate employees, who may not realize that they do not need any money upfront to pay attorneys. Employees have basic rights that deserve to be protected.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

Lawyers for Workplace Fairness is comprised of dozens of attorneys who only practice employment law for plaintiffs. We do not ever represent employers and we do not practice any other type of law. This focus allows our attorneys to develop an expertise and stay on top of up to the minute changes in employment law.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We will take on cases that other firms may deem too small or unimportant, because we do not require upfront fees or costs. We only get paid when you do. Lawyers for Workplace Fairness handles large cases against some of the largest corporations in California, we also fight for the employee against small and mid-size companies.

Robert Byrnes

Robert Byrnes is the firm's head of litigation. During the past decade, Robert has represented employees with legal claims in state and federal courts, as well as in the arbitration settings that employers increasingly force workers into. He has represented, and secured substantial settlements on behalf of, workers in the many industries most affected by workplace-protection laws. For example, Robert negotiated a $2-million dollar settlement on behalf of a national department store's sales associates who alleged they had been denied meal and rest breaks.

He has also represented a national children's clothing store's employees alleging unpaid overtime, and negotiated a $2.1-million settlement on their behalf. In addition to retail workers, Robert secured a $1.65-million settlement on behalf of nurses and other healthcare workers, as well as a settlement with a fast food chain that resulted in a monitoring program being instituted to ensure compliance with meal and rest break laws.

Robert grew up in New Hampshire, hoping to become an attorney and to work toward making society fairer for working-class families like his own. After graduating first in his high school class, he went to Brown University, graduating in 1988. He received a master's degree in public policy from Harvard University in 1991, and then made a permanent home in California, putting himself through law school with the help of scholarships. He received his law degree from Stanford Law School in 1998.

Consistent with Robert's vision, Lawyers for Workplace Fairness seeks to represent any worker treated unfairly by an employer. Workers come to the firm after being treated unfairly on the job, and in many instances after other lawyers have turned them away. We use modern technology to minimize your need to travel to assist us with your case. We welcome inquiries from anyone who has experienced a workplace violation. Not only are any initial consultations free, there is no cost whatsoever to you, unless we negotiate a settlement for you or a court enters a judgment on your behalf.
