Wage claims are what we do. Strauss Law Group (SLG) is a Ventura employment law and litigation firm representing employees in California. Our experience in employment law goes back to 1979, when lead attorney Tony Strauss started representing the County of Ventura in employment law matters. Tony’s son, Mike, joined the firm in 2006 and together they made a point of representing employees in wage claims, big and small.
Strauss Law Group takes overtime, doubletime, minimum wage, and other types of wage claims in California. Our clients’ claims are worth anywhere from a few thousand dollars to six figures. They are also located all over California.
Strauss Law Group has a streamlined process for taking wage claims. We can do all of our client intake online. Sometimes we never meet face-to-face with our clients. In short, we try to make representing clients in wage claims as easy as possible. We do not get paid unless we win your case.
Palay Law Firm only represents individuals. Our clients are workers who have disputes with their employers, like not paying overtime or denying lunch breaks. We represent California employees throughout the state.
Palay Law Firm has obtained some of the largest per-person class action recoveries in California history in unpaid overtime cases. Our lead attorney, Daniel J. Palay, a Ventura employment lawyer, has a long history of fighting for employees’ rights. He was named Trial Lawyer of the Year in 2007. Palay Law Firm has recovered in excess of $50 million for its employee clients in wage-and-hour matters. Mike Strauss recently joined Palay Law Firm and the two firms work together on many wage claim type cases. Brian Hefelfinger is a Ventura bankruptcy lawyer who also represents employees in wage claims; his bankruptcy experience helps Palay Law Firm recover money that employers hide to avoid paying wage claim judgments.
If you contact us by phone, email, or through our online intake form, you will receive a prompt response by one of our attorneys or staff, either from Strauss Law Group or Palay Law Firm. Calls or emails from after hours are returned promptly the next work day. We will assess your claim by phone and then, once we begin our representation of you, we will work toward gathering the evidence you need to prove your wage claim. With the evidence in hand, our experienced wage claim staff will prepare a full work-up of what we believe you are owed. The more prepared we are, the more likely that we will be able to reclaim the full amount of your unpaid wages.
We regularly appear in court or in front of the California Labor Commissioner on wage claims. We have litigated wage claims all over California. If you are in Southern California, Northern California, or anywhere in between, do not hesitate to call or contact us regarding representation in your wage claim.
Unlike many of our competitors, Strauss Law Group and Palay Law Firm represent individuals in their own actions for unpaid wages. We also handle class actions.
