Elite employment attorneys

Every California business needs expert attorneys to help resolve disputes and navigate state and federal labor and employment laws.

Rushing McCarl LLP serves as outside in-house counsel for companies, helping them write strong employment contracts, advising them about legal strategy and communications, setting up new ownership and transaction structures to minimize downside, conducting internal investigations, and getting insurers’ attention when a covered risk arises.

We provide aggressive representation for companies faced with wage-and-hour suits, PAGA claims, employment discrimination suits, and partnership or shareholder lawsuits in state and federal courts, both at trial and on appeal as well as in arbitration forums. On the plaintiffs’ side of the bar, we represent employees, shareholders, and partners on a non-contingency basis in complex business disputes involving shareholder oppression, breaches of fiduciary duty, intellectual property, and more. Representing both plaintiffs and defendants gives Rushing McCarl a strategic advantage, allowing us to help our clients see around corners, understand the opponent’s incentives, and evaluate the strength of legal claims.

LITERAL LIFESAVERS!!!! I was scammed into a contract for equipment 1000 times the market value by shady door to door salesman. After realizing what I got into, I was horrified and realized that I'd be paying 30 years on simple home equipment. I scoured the internet for lawyers with expertise in contract law and they took my case. In the end they got me out of what would have been a horrible financial nightmare. They won't make promises, but if there is a loophole, they'll l find it! Their professionalism, diligence, responsiveness and customer service were absolutely amazing. I am so grateful to have found this firm and that they took my case. God forbid I need their services again, they would be my first choice for representation.

Reviews are challenging for the business that Rushing McCarl engages in, because they deal with a difficult landscape where legal transactions/disputes can become very costly. We appreciate their level of professional judgement and execution in our case. Hopefully we won't have to go through this again, if we do, we would definitely work with Rushing McCarl again

I needed some help proofing a complicated personal-services contract, but I didn't have a corporate-lawyer budget. Rushing McCarl took my financial situation into consideration yet still provided outstanding service, timely communication, and an excellent resolution to my situation. Would definitely use them again.

A few months ago, I accidentally discovered an out-of-state company had copied our website and even our company name and logo. I contacted Rushing McCarl LLP to find out what are my legal rights. John Rushing returned my call immediately, he explained the process to me, and I decided to hire the firm. I was delighted with the outcome of his work. He contacted the company and had them to change their name, domain, etc. Additionally, whenever I had a question, I could talk to him or his partners immediately. I am incredibly pleased with their attorney services and highly recommend them.

Interpreting the law is expected of a firm. Rushing McCarl gave me the time to get to know the team, so I was sure that they could interpret me. This time was essential for me looking to build a long-term relationship. Within general representation, Ryan provides quick, clean, and concise opinions that help make conclusions in my best interest.
