Working with our clients to protect their interests.

Nuddleman Law Firm

The Nuddleman Law Firm is dedicated to protecting the workplace. Our experienced and knowledgeable attorneys bring the highest level of advocacy to attain the results our clients deserve. We represent employers and employees, giving us an advantage over firms that only focus on one side or the other. Our experienced Northern California attorneys handle workplace discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, unpaid wages, disability discrimination, retaliation and other employment disputes.

If you have questions or need assistance with claims of sexual harassment, disability accommodation, leaves of absence, discrimination, overtime and wage issues, or have another employment law matter, contact an attorney at the Nuddleman Law Firm. Our sexual harassment lawyers represent clients throughout Oakland, Berkeley, Pleasanton, Concord, San Jose, Alameda County, Contra Costa County, Santa Clara County and the Silicon Valley in California.

What We Do

We represent individuals and companies in a wide variety of employment law matters, including unpaid wage claims, disability accommodation issues, discrimination, harassment and wrongful termination claims. We help employers and employees understand their rights and obligations, and zealously advocate for our clients. We resolve issues before they become problems, and help our clients develop strategies for success.

Our Mission

Education is a cornerstone of our practice. The Nuddleman Law Firm was founded to help our clients maintain a positive work environment, so they can focus on getting back to business. Americans spend more waking hours at work than they do with their families. Any disruption in that relationship can create problems that hurt productivity and peace of mind. We are your first call when you experience a problem in your workplace.
