Nearly A Century Of Combined Experience Efficient and Effective Strategies to Resolve Transactional Matters and Legal Disputes

Stockton Employment Law And Litigation Attorneys

The success of any business relies on strong, effective relationships between employers and workers. Anything from an overtime dispute to allegations of harassment or even discrimination in the workplace can easily threaten to undermine both employee morale and a company's bottom line.

Resolving employment-related disputes — and helping employers avoid common situations that lead to disputes in the first place — requires the counsel and problem-solving abilities of an experienced employment lawyer. At Malm Fagundes LLP, our employment law and litigation practice is led by attorney Scott Malm. During 35-plus years of practice in California, he has fought on behalf of both employers and workers in California, developing an instinct for how employment-related matters play out at the bargaining table and in the courtroom. By having an exceptional knowledge of the state's labor and employment laws and knowing how the other side in any case is likely to act, he can help our clients protect their legal interests effectively and efficiently.

We are litigators first and foremost, but also recognize that employers and employees alike often want nothing more than to resolve disagreements as quickly as possible and with minimal disruption. We will always exhaust every available legal strategy to help advance a client's cause, while first advancing those that can achieve a client's goals most efficiently.
