Our Practice Areas

We proficiently handle a wide array of cases, including the following. If you think you are the victim of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation in the workplace, contact us.

Wrongful Termination

Did you lose your job unfairly, possibly due to discriminatory reasons? We can help you address this injustice.

If you have suffered a wrongful termination, Waltman Employment Law is here to support you. We can guide you through a wrongful termination lawsuit or employment discrimination action. We have a proven track record of successfully litigating these intricate cases and will leverage our experience to advocate for the justice and compensation you rightly deserve.

Retaliation Claims and Medical Leave Rights

Afraid to speak out after taking medical leave or seeking accommodations? We’re your advocates.

Employers occasionally retaliate against employees who take medical or family leave, an outright violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). If you have experienced such adverse employment action or employer retaliation, our San Diego retaliation attorney offers the vital legal assistance you need to ensure your employer is held accountable.

Pregnancy and Maternity Leave Discrimination

Facing discrimination due to pregnancy or maternity leave is unlawful and unacceptable. Let us stand with you.

State and federal laws protect pregnancy and maternity leave, ensuring employees receive their rightful entitlements. Any employer who unlawfully denies maternity leave or discriminates against pregnant employees may face serious legal consequences. We understand California employment law and are dedicated to providing the support you need to protect your rights and seek justice.


Don’t let harassment slide. Let us help you reclaim your peace of mind.

Workplace harassment takes many forms, from sexual harassment to verbal assault. Not only is harassment a violation of employees’ rights, but no one should have to tolerate such behavior. At Waltman Employment Law, we protect you from these unlawful actions, prove retaliation, and ensure your employer is accountable for their behavior.


Employers are responsible for ensuring fair compensation for employees’ working hours, even for overtime. If you ever find yourself in a situation where your employer failed to adequately pay you due to misclassification, unauthorized deductions, or failure to abide by California regulations, Waltman Employment Law is here for you. We can help you pursue lost wages and the compensation you deserve under California labor laws.


In California, employees have the right to various breaks, like meal breaks and rest periods. Sadly, some employers unlawfully deny or fail to provide these breaks. If you ever find yourself in this situation, Waltman Employment Law provides the legal support and representation you need to hold your employer accountable.

Wage and Hour Disputes

If you’ve worked for it, you deserve to get paid. We ensure you get what you’re owed.

Workplace disputes about wages and hours are, unfortunately, quite common. If you have been unfairly paid or denied your rightful earnings, Waltman Employment Law can help. Our workplace retaliation attorney will navigate the complexities of the legal landscape to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Class Actions and Other Representative Actions

There’s strength in numbers when fighting injustice. We handle class actions proficiently.

Sometimes, employees may need to come together and assert their rights collectively, like through class or representative actions. These efforts can be complex and require the knowledge of experienced legal professionals. That is precisely why Waltman Employment Law is here to provide the crucial support and guidance needed in such situations.

Workplace Discrimination

Employee discrimination has no place in the workplace. We’ll help you fight back.

Workplace discrimination affects many people in different industries. This discrimination typically includes unfair treatment or bias based on things like age, race, gender, religion, disability, or sexual orientation. At Waltman Employment Law, we fight against workplace discrimination and advocate for justice for our clients.
