Ahdoot & Wolfson also assists individuals that are victims of invasions of privacy, including the public disclosure of private personal information. Many of these privacy claims involve internet publication of individuals’ confidential financial or medical information, including social security numbers and other identifying information that can lead to identity theft and fraud. Our attorneys have additional experience pursuing antitrust actions against businesses for interference with contractual relationships and price fixing.

At Ahdoot & Wolfson, we are devoted to assisting workers in employment litigation matters. Our attorneys have exceptional knowledge and experience representing workers in claims against their employers arising from a variety of wrongful conduct, including but not limited to:
- Workplace discrimination and harassment
- Wrongful termination
- Wage and hour disputes
Employers may be civilly liable for discriminatory conduct based on a worker’s race, national origin, age, gender, or disability. An employer may be liable to the adversely affected employee for creating or permitting a hostile work environment, including instances of sexual harassment or racial harassment. Female employees’ rights can be violated by mistreatment due to a pregnancy, or a wrongful termination in violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Our attorneys have extensive experience representing workers against employers that have engaged in or permitted this unacceptable conduct.
Ahdoot & Wolfson also has extensive experience representing plaintiffs and other employees similarly situated in wage and hour class actions. These class actions enable individual employees to collectively pursue claims against a large corporate employer. We also aid employees with retaliation claims, often arising when an employee is terminated after engaging in protected activity. Our attorneys have experience with whistleblower claims as well, which typically involve a wrongful termination resulting from the employee reporting an employer’s unlawful business practice.

As an individual consumer, many potential plaintiffs are at an extreme disadvantage when their rights have been violated by a large, powerful corporation. Ahdoot & Wolfson protects the rights of consumers by aggressively pursuing claims against corporate defendants that have violated consumers’ privacy rights or engaged in deceptive business practices. Based in California, our consumer protection extends across the entire nation, as our attorneys regularly represent plaintiffs serving as class representatives for nationwide class actions.
Consumer claims often arise from misleading or deceptive advertising, when a corporate manufacturer or retailer guarantees a product quality or service that is not fulfilled or makes unsubstantiated, erroneous claims or scientific conclusions about their products that induce consumer purchases. The attorneys at Ahdoot & Wolfson also represent plaintiffs and pursue class actions stemming from an invasion of privacy. With the growing prevalence of the Internet in every aspect of personal and professional life, a company’s disclosure of confidential personal information to third parties without the individual’s authorization can give rise to a consumer protection action. Safeguarding privacy on the Internet is a continual battle with companies that often seek to exploit personal data for profit, along with the ever-present threat of identity theft. Our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to fight corporate entities responsible for violating consumer privacy rights.
