Incorporated in 1903, Alhambra is a suburb located approximately 8 miles from downtown Los Angeles and has a population of over 83,000 full time residents. The main industries in Alhambra include retail and government positions as well as numerous jobs in the restaurant industry. 1
Unfortunately residents of Alhambra and the entire State of California are often discriminated against at their workplace. In fact, in 2012, it is estimated that residents of Alhambra filed over 40 lawsuits alleging job discrimination at their place of employment, and in the entire State of California over 20,000 cases were filed in 2012. 2
While this may seem like a high number of cases filed for an area like Alhambra, unfortunately there are dozens if not hundreds of other employees who are still being treated improperly, discriminated against, or wrongfully terminated but never seek help to receive financial compensation from their employer for their wrongdoing.
At the law offices of Shegerian & Associates, it's our job and passion to fight for the rights of those who are wronged in the workplace. We have an over 95% success rate, and have won numerous multi-million dollar verdicts for our clients who were discriminated against. Here are just a few local verdicts our clients were awarded:

Discrimination Verdict For Alhambra Employee
Our client was a public employee in Alhambra who was threatened, retaliated against, and wrung up on false criminal charges for trying to expose a former boss who was hiding evidence of a crime. Eventually, our client was fired due to the false allegations against him and false criminal charges (our client was acquitted of all criminal wrongdoing). We filed a discrimination suit on behalf of our client, who was eventually awarded a verdict of $800,000.00 due to the injustices committed against him.
Whether you work for a large corporation, a small business, or a government agency, no employee deserves to be treated improperly at their place of employment. Below are just a few of the areas Shegerian & Associates specializes in:
