I started The Fromholz Firm to deliver a new kind of employment law experience. After more than 20 years on every side of the employment law equation, I began to imagine a new way to provide quality employment counsel to employees and businesses, focused on reaching the best outcome for my clients. Call it an enlightened approach to employment law.

My goal is to offer thoughtful, pragmatic representation for employees, and practical consulting to small businesses, maintaining a focus on the best result for each individual client. Nothing cookie-cutter about this approach. That’s what we mean by “law that works.”

No matter what employment issue you’re facing, I’ve been there.

•I’ve represented individuals and businesses, plaintiffs and defendants.
•I’ve been a partner at large law firms representing businesses.
•I’ve been in-house counsel at companies small and large.
•I’ve been an employee of small and large companies.

These varied experiences help me understand how best to serve my clients.

In an employment law environment, time and cost are critical parts of the equation. Whether you are a plaintiff seeking relief under contract or statute or a business needing cost-effective and preventive guidance, we can help.

Employment is a relationship. Both parties benefit from a shared understanding of goals and expectations. I can help clarify that relationship—preventing disputes from arising, and helping to resolve them when they do.

The same is true of the relationship between client and counselor. I’m committed to building a relationship with my clients that is forthright and respectful. I promise open communication, clear analysis, honest evaluation, and reliable responsiveness.

I’m a native Californian. I attended Dartmouth College, and came home to attend USC Law School. I’m a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association Judicial Appointments Committee, which evaluates people who have applied for the Los Angeles Superior Court bench. I keep abreast of the developments in employment law as an active member of the American Bar Association Labor and Employment Law Section, the Los Angeles County Bar Association Labor and Employment Section, and the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles.

Work isn’t my whole life. I believe in work-life balance and family is important to me. I’m also involved in my community. I work with and support many Southern California non-profits, including AIDS Project Los Angeles and Homeboy Industries. I love coaching the mock trial team students from Animo Pat Brown Charter High School, through the Constitutional Rights Foundation.

You should know that I’m a Dodgers fan. A bad singer and a slow runner. I throw left, bat left. And to me, the glass is never less than half-full.
