Our Philosophy

“The big corporations get the best lawyers, you should too…”

I went to law school to fight for the underdog and give a voice to those who otherwise have none. Not in every field of law do you have clients who have suffered such a significant harm by no fault of their own. Helping these employees and their families through this time and holding those who break the laws responsible and accountable for the harm is the most satisfying aspect of employment law litigation.

Suddenly losing a job can have devastating effects on ones psyche, family, and finances.  One of the most satisfying experiences for me and my employment law firm is giving my client their day in court and allowing a jury to award them full compensation for the emotional pain that accompanies the loss of identity of losing one’s job due to improper motivations of the employer.  Seeing my clients turn around from their day in court and rebuild their lives is a wonderful experience.

I fight hard to make sure that a corporation’s motivation for profits does not overshadow the law or the loyalty of an employee.

The employment laws are designed to protect all of us.  Any time an employer wrongfully terminates and employee either because of a disability, a history of disabilities, pregnancy, or a family leave that employer is endangering each of us. It is my privilege to go up against some of the most deceptive and difficult corporations to make my client whole.

After attending the top ranked law school in Los Angeles I started my career working at the law firm of Latham & Watkins, LLP one of the biggest law firms in Los Angeles.  After representing large corporations and banks, I saw firsthand how some corporation would put their motivation for money above their requirement to follow the law.  Rather than continue down that path, I decided to open my own law firm to focus on representing the employees who became victims to corporate greed.

If you believe you were subjected to a wrongful termination from your job based on discrimination, retaliation, harassment, sexual harassmentdisability or any other wrongful reason, contact the Law Offices of Jonathan Delshad to schedule a free consultation with either myself or one of our excellent staff.

The law recognizes that employees who are terminated cannot pay for their own law suits and authorizes attorneys fees to employees who win so that working together, the government and attorneys like me can stamp out discrimination, harassment, and retaliation from the workplace.  Your employment law attorney should be prepared and willing to take your case on contingency because if you win, your employer will usually be required to pay your attorneys fees. Retaining a top employment attorney to assist you in your employee / employer relationship should not be a trivial decision.

While other employment law attorneys will handle hundreds of cases, our goal is to provide top caliber employment law services to a select few.  Our clients know that your employer will likely retain a high caliber attorney from a top school and pay them $400 to $500 an hour to defend itself against any claims.  Often, the employee will not know any better and will select a lawyer with little experience from a second or third tier school to represent him.  We believe that the employee deserves counsel just as good, if not better than what the employer will have.  Prior to opening this office, Mr. Delshad worked at one of the most prestigious law firm in Los Angeles, where his clients included wall street financial institutions that were paying up to $550 an hour for his time.  You may be able to get the same service on contingency basis* if your case qualifies.   Our philosophy is to take on only cases we believe are the most egregious and outrageous wrongful termination, sexual harassment, discrimination and other employment law cases and personally fight hard on behalf of those clients, instead of treating your case like just another run of the mill case.

If you wish to have your case evaluated by The Law Offices of Jonathan Delshad, please fill out a short case evaluation form by clicking on the tab to the right.

Once we have had a chance to review the case evaluation form, we will contact you if we require you to come in for a more formal evaluation.  Due to the large number of requests we receive and our dedication to providing only the best legal representation, we are very selective in choosing our clients, therefore not all requests will result in a response from this office.  If we fail to respond within three business days you should assume we have declined your case.
