We Stand for Employee Rights

Employment Litigation

At The Houck Firm, we stand up for the rights of employees who have been mistreated or wronged in the workplace. We are committed to advocating for fair treatment, equality, and justice.

Discrimination

If you've experienced discrimination based on your race, religion, gender, age, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, or other protected characteristics, we're here to fight for your rights and hold your employer accountable.

Harassment

No one should have to endure harassment or hostile work environments. We'll work tirelessly to put an end to harassment and seek compensation for the harm you've suffered.

Retaliation

It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against you because you reported unlawful conduct (e.g., unsafe working conditions, harassment, discrimination, or other violations of law), or because you requested a reasonable accommodation for a disability, or if you need to take legally-entitled time of work such as a leave of absence under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or California Family Rights Act (CFRA), sick leave, reproductive loss leave, bereavement leave, pregnancy disability leave, or baby bonding leave. If you’ve experienced illegal retaliation, we will fight for you and hold your employer accountable.

Wrongful Termination

If you've been unlawfully terminated from your job, whether due to retaliation, whistleblowing, or other illegal reasons, we'll help you seek justice and pursue the compensation you deserve.

Wage and Hour Disputes

Whether you've been denied fair wages, overtime pay, or meal and rest breaks, we'll work to ensure that you receive the compensation and benefits you're entitled to under the law.

Dealing with misconduct

Legal Malpractice

When you entrust your legal matters to an attorney, you expect them to act in your best interests and provide competent representation. Unfortunately, not all attorneys live up to these standards, and their negligence or misconduct can have serious consequences for their clients. If you’ve been harmed by legal malpractice, The Houck Firm is here to help.

Resolving Disputes & Protecting Interests

Trusts and Estates Litigation

Dealing with matters of trusts and estates can be complex and emotionally charged, especially when disputes arise among family members or beneficiaries. At The Houck Firm, we handle all types of trusts and estates litigation, helping our clients resolve disputes and protect their interests with compassion and expertise.

Will and Trust Contests

If you believe that a will or trust is invalid due to fraud, undue influence, lack of capacity, or other actionable reasons, we'll work to contest the will or trust and ensure that your loved one's wishes are honored.

Trust Disputes

Whether you're facing disputes over the interpretation of a trust document, the management of trust assets, or the actions of a trustee, we'll advocate for your rights and seek a fair resolution.

Financial Elder Abuse

If someone has exploited an elder to change an estate plan for financial gain, we can bring claims of financial elder abuse in probate court to hold the abuser accountable.

Probate Litigation

We'll guide you through the probate process and represent your interests in court if disputes arise over the distribution of assets, the appointment of executors or administrators, or other probate matters.
