Employment Law


inner_list2Our experience in employment law shows us that there is only a slow and fledgling Employment Lawawareness of the labor rights of workers in our country, probably a reflection of the recent nature of labor law and a traditional underestimation of labor practice and principles. However, it is employment law which encloses the culture and image of a country. The attorneys at Dawson & Ozanne join the tireless company that has always sought to find harmony between the law, the economy and the social interest here in southern California. Our philosophy is simple: we understand that all economic systems are based on the work performed by people, who are not just numerical entities devoid of ability. At Dawson & Ozanne, our focus is to serve those people and resolve the basic problem and task of every society: the coexistence of peace and respect for the human being.

Here at Dawson & Ozanne, you will find lawyers immersed in the practice of employment law, the science of law which focuses on the protection of the rights of the worker, given their weaker economic and legal position against the employer.
