My daughter was born 2 weeks before my company, where I’d worked for 10+ years, announced layoffs. I had a 2 week paternity benefit and the termination came on the first day of unpaid Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Leave. I had a limited amount of time respond and in a state of panic, I ran some google searches and called 4 or 5 firms in California to figure out what, if any, recourse I had.

I summarized my situation to the legal assistant/para who answered and she offered me an appointment with Sonya the next day. After speaking to several attorneys, Sonya was by far the most helpful, sympathetic and resourceful. She spent over 90 minutes on the phone with me over 2 calls discussing my case and breaking down my options which included coaching my own response to HR to double my severance package in light of the FMLA because I was clearly made aware that I had a case and Sonya would represent me.

Sonya was honest and clear about the difficulties in litigation which very much helped inform my decision to move forward. I would strongly recommend that anybody that might have a legal beef with an employer consult Sonya and her team and they will provide honest and caring guidance down whichever path is most suitable.

It was a very difficult moment for me, and I cannot thank Sonya enough for her kind and generous assistance.
