Claimed Lawyer Profile

The modern workplace can be difficult to navigate. Many employees in the State of California are employed on an at-will basis, which means that they can be fired for a good reason, a bad reason, or no reason at all. On the other hand, many federal and state laws protect employees from discrimination, harassment and overtime violations, as well as many other forms of illegal workplace conduct.

If you’ve been underpaid, cheated, fired, suspended, bullied or harassed on the job, or if you have been accused of such conduct we can help. If you’ve been given, or need a severance agreement or release, and you’re not sure what to do or how to do what needs to be done to protect your rights, the best, and perhaps wisest thing to do is hire an experienced employment law firm that is focused on handling employment related disputes. The Marin County California employment law firm of Kesten-Law serves not only Marin County, we are active in Sonoma, Napa, Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco Counties. The attorneys at Kesten-Law are dedicated to helping employees of all types—from C-level executives to minimum wage employees. We help employees and employers resolve their employment disputes and maximize their results through negotiation, arbitration or trial.

We can be aggressive trial attorneys when necessary and have taken on some of the country’s largest companies and their law firms in employment discrimination, harassment and class action overtime cases. We also understand that there are alternatives to litigation. We are experienced in alternative dispute resolution techniques that can, in the appropriate case, be put to work to resolve your dispute quickly and efficiently. Steven Kesten has even attended the Harvard Law School program on mediation and dispute resolution and is a trained arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association.

We handle most litigation matters on a contingency basis when we represent employees and on an hourly basis
