June 06, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsJune 6, 2015 - Feldman Browne Olivares was named as one of the best Labor and Employment Law firms in America. For 2015, the firm was awarded the highest "Tier 1" ranking by the U.S. News and World Report and Best Lawyers in America publications for our successful representation of California employees who have been harassed, discriminated against, wrongfully terminated and/or denied wages, overtime, rest and/or meal breaks.
Partners, Lee R. Feldman and Alicia Olivares, were individually selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers in America, the oldest and most respected peer review publication in the legal profession. A listing in Best Lawyers is a significant honor conferred on outstanding lawyers by their peers.
All partners, Lee R. Feldman, Gina Browne and Alicia Olivares, were once gain recognized as "Super Lawyers" in Labor and Employment by Los Angeles Magazine and Super Lawyers Magazine, a designation awarded only the top 5% of Southern California lawyers, who are voted by their peers as the best lawyers in the State of California. The Super Lawyer designation is awarded based on voting among Southern California's 65,000-plus attorneys, each of whom is asked to name the best lawyers they have personally observed.
Lee R. Feldman was once again named by California's leading legal newspaper, The Daily Journal, as one of the "Top 75 Labor & Employment Lawyers" in California. The list typically includes just 15-25 lawyers who represent employees and Mr. Feldman has been selected as one for three (3) years in a row. The 2015 publication highlighted Mr. Feldman's outstanding and groundbreaking work in a recent appellate victory clarifying that an employer who is aware that a co-employer has willfully misclassified their joint employees as independent contractors and fails to remedy the misclassification will be liable for large civil penalties under Labor Code section 226.8 for the willful misclassification of those employees.
