Bryan Schwartz Law Attorneys Honored by Daily Journal and Super Lawyers Magazine
July 18, 2018, Oakland - Bryan Schwartz Law is proud to announce that its principal has again been named one of the Top 75 Labor & Employment Lawyers in California by the Daily Journal. For the eighth consecutive year, Bryan Schwartz has also been honored as a top practitioner by Northern California Super Lawyers magazine. Bryan Schwartz Law associates Rachel Terp, Eduard Meleshinsky, and Logan Starr have also been named “Rising Stars” by Super Lawyers.
Bryan Schwartz’s Daily Journal honor ranks him among the elite labor and employment attorneys in California, and no more than the five percent of lawyers in California are named "Super Lawyers." The Daily Journal publishes a feature explaining the special accomplishments leading to each lawyer’s selection, after extensive independent research by the newspaper’s reporting staff. This year, the Daily Journal focused on Schwartz’s victory for low-wage restaurant workers in the published Turman v. Superior Court appeal, holding that individual owners, officers, and directors of corporations can be personally liable as joint employers for Labor Code claims (under the state’s Wage Orders).
Terp, Meleshinsky, and Starr’s selections as “Rising Stars” place them within the top 2.5 percent of the newer attorneys in California. Super Lawyers undertakes a rigorous, multi-phase selection process for these distinctions that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidates by researchers, and a good-standing and disciplinary check.
Attorney Bryan Schwartz opened the practice in January 2009. Bryan Schwartz Law is dedicated to continuing the struggle for civil rights and equality of employment opportunity and helping Americans from every background to achieve their highest career potential. The firm has recovered tens of millions of dollars in individual, class, and collective actions involving discrimination and retaliation, harassment, denied disability accommodations, whistleblower reprisal, wage and hour violations, Federal employees' rights, and severance negotiations.
