How Can I Find a Wage and Hour Lawyer in California?


Ways to find a wage and hour attorney in California.



You can find a good employment lawyer to help with your wage claim in California in several ways. A referral from someone you know is a great way to find a lawyer. Ask family members, friends, and co-workers whether they can recommend a good employment lawyer. 

Lawyers specialize, so the lawyer who handled your sister’s car accident won’t be the right person to handle your wage claim. However, lawyers also know other lawyers, so don’t hesitate to ask a well-recommended lawyer in a different field for an employment lawyer referral.

If you can’t find a lawyer through personal referrals, here are a couple of other options: 

  • Check with the California Bar Association for information about lawyer referral services in California.
  • Use the “Find a Lawyer” tool at the website of the National Employment Lawyers’ Association to find a lawyer specializing in unemployment claims in California. 
  • Check Nolo's lawyer directory (available through for names of employment lawyers in your zip code in California.
