At the Kizirian Law Firm, we advocate on behalf of California employees and consumers. Our clients come to us from all walks of life with a variety of legal needs. We bring lawsuits against employers, businesses, and others who have done our clients wrong.
We specialize in both class and individual litigation. Our founder, Armand R. Kizirian, has many years of experience pursuing complex and difficult cases in state and federal court. With a client-centered focus, creative lawyering, and hard work, we strive to reach the best possible outcome for all those we represent.
The Kizirian Law Firm has two primary areas of focus. First, we represent employees in various types of employment suits. Specifically, we specialize in wage and hour class actions, which include suits for unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, and missed meal and rest breaks. We also assert other employment claims such as those for wrongful termination, discrimination, and harassment.
Second, we represent consumers in pursuit of a variety of claims. We file suit over unfair business practices, false advertising, product liability, data breaches, loans with unconscionable interest rates, and suits for unwanted calls, text messages, and faxes.
We encourage you to learn more about our practice by getting in touch today.
Yes. All of our initial consultations are free of charge. It’s our job to determine if you have a potential case that we may be able to pursue. It’s OK if you are not sure if what happened to you is worth filing a lawsuit over — call or email us and we’d be happy to discuss.
We take most of our cases on a contingent fee basis. That means that you do not pay anything up front or while the lawsuit is pending. We take a portion of any judgment or settlement to pay for our fees and reimbursement of costs. With a contingency fee agreement, you can avoid having to fund litigation out of your own pocket. If for any reason the lawsuit is not successful, you do not pay us any fees and we absorb the amount of costs that we had advanced to fund the litigation.
Our state government was concerned about this problem too, that an employer could take a small amount from the employee with the idea that it wouldn’t be worth the employee’s time to pursue it. As a result, California has some of the strongest employee protection laws in the country, tacking on various penalties to discourage wage theft by employers. Moreover, class and representative lawsuits make it feasible for attorneys to pursue even relatively small claims when many individuals have suffered from the same or similar harm.
