Protecting The Rights Of Working People
The employment law attorneys at the Law Office of Hewgill, Cobb and Lockard pride themselves on being problem solvers. For hardworking San Diego residents, they have provided aggressive representation to resolve legal matters that involve accidents, wage-related disputes, and retaliation.
While many solutions to these employer-employee disputes come through mediation, the legal team at our firm are skilled and successful litigators who do not shy away from trial.
Experience And Knowledge. Compassion And Empathy.
Cases that come to our law office come in many forms, but they usually share the same motivation behind them: California employers more concerned with their bottom line. In an effort to pad their profits, they end up violating federal law when they:
- Misclassify workers as independent contractors or exempt to deny them all their wages
- Wrongfully terminate them for whistleblowing
- Refuse to provide workers’ compensation benefits
When you retain our firm, your case goes beyond just day-to-day work. It is our mission to find the best possible solution. At every step, you will receive the personalized representation and vigorous advocacy you need during a time of difficulty and uncertainty.
Justin is committed to being a zealous litigator on behalf of working people. His current practice focuses on wage and hour law (class action and individual), workers’ compensation, employment law, and the representation of unions. Justin also has experience in landlord tenant law, election law, and plaintiff-side tort litigation.
Prior to entering private practice, Justin was the supervising attorney for the Employee Rights Center, a non-profit organization which seeks to represent workers in a breadth of legal concerns. At the Employee Rights Center, Justin supervised a team of volunteer lawyers, law students, and support staff in prosecuting cases and enforcing the employment and labor rights of the Center’s clients. In this capacity, Justin prosecuted countless wage and hour matters, both administratively and in civil court, and represented workers in a myriad of administrative forums, ranging from the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board to the National Labor Relations Board.
Prior to working at the Employee Rights Center of San Diego, Justin worked with the San Diego Fire Lawyers, a partnership of law firms representing victims of the 2007 San Diego County wildfires. With the San Diego Fire Lawyers, Justin worked with a team of attorneys representing clients who had lost homes, businesses, and other property, and experienced serious traumatic events in the 2007 wildfires. The San Diego Fire Lawyers was the largest single plaintiff group in the 2007 wildfires litigation, which was one of the largest tort matters ever litigated in the California courts. Prior to working with the San Diego Fire Lawyers, Justin was with the Affordable Housing Advocates, a nonprofit organization dedicated to maintaining affordable and habitable rental housing stock in the San Diego area and the state.
