It has come to our attention that someone is impersonating one of our attorneys and claiming to send out "Americares relief checks" - this is a scam and we are in no way affiliated with relief checks of any kind.

If you receive a message from someone claiming to be Daniel Schmeichel, DO NOT give them any of your personal information and instead report the message as "scam/fraud". The initial message may appear to come from the account of someone you know.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we are working to get these fraudulent pages removed from Facebook as quickly as possible.

Employment Law Attorneys

Serving Individuals Wronged At Work Throughout Orange County & Los Angeles Areas

In the workplace, the perception of what’s right and wrong can be skewed by company culture. In some industries, unlawful practices like working overtime without pay, skipping required breaks, or penalizing people for taking medical leave can feel normal because your employer treats it that way. Taking a job does not mean you sacrifice your basic rights. There are many laws in California designed to protect employees from discrimination, harassment, and wage theft. If you have experienced mistreatment in your workplace, contact our employment law attorneys.

For almost 20 years, the attorneys at Aegis Law Firm have been fighting for employee rights in Irvine, Orange County, and Los Angeles areas. Our team has recovered millions of dollars for our clients. We are proud of the monetary results we have obtained for our clients, but we believe the true measure of success is measured in client satisfaction.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • Q:How Do I Know Which Law Firm Is the Right One for Me?

    A:First and foremost, you should find a law firm that specializes in representing employees against their employers. There are a lot of “jack of all, ace of none” law firms out there. Second, check the firm's client reviews, awards, and previous results. At Aegis, we are proud to have represented Southern California employees exclusively since 2003. We have received numerous awards, stellar client reviews, and outstanding case results.

  • Q:How Does Aegis Get Paid for Their Time?

    A:We work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we only get paid if a settlement is obtained for you. If we don't recover any money owed to you, we don't receive payout for attorney's fees.

  • Q:How Do I Know If I Have a Case?

    A:Give us a call at (800) 543-4829 and let the receptionist know you are a potential client. From there, our trained staff will get more information about your case for our attorneys to review. If the attorney thinks we can be of assistance with your situation, we will set up a free consultation between you and the attorney to discuss your case more in depth.

  • Q:How Much Is My Case Worth?

    A:Results can vary greatly from case to case. Our experienced attorneys can meet with you to give you a free consultation about the strength and value of your case. We cannot guarantee a certain outcome, but if we take on your case, it means we believe we can obtain money or another favorable result for you.

  • Q:Do I Have to Pay Any Money to Start My Case?

    A:No, you don't have to pay any money to start your case. We will advance all initial costs to get your case started, with zero out of pocket costs to you.

  • Q:How Long Will My Case Take Before I Get Paid?

    A:This varies depending on the complexity of your case. We have been very successful settling cases very early on, sometimes right away. However, we are also prepared to fight for you all the way through trial, if necessary. Going to trial can take a year or more.

  • Q:Will Pursuing a Case Against My Former Employer Prevent Me from Finding Another Job?

    A:Employers are prohibited from discriminating against you for exercising your constitutional rights. We are also trained in methods to prevent or limit potential exposure, such as through confidential communications or private legal proceedings.
