San Diego, California Employment Attorneys
Free ConsultationContingency Fee
Law Firm OverviewEmge & Associates is located in San Diego, California. Our attorneys are proud to represent consumers and employees who have suffered or know about illegal mistreatment by employers and large businesses. When someone stands up for what is right, we have the capability and determination to stand with them and defend their employee rights.
Our firm is committed to providing the kind of comprehensive, cost-effective representation our clients deserve. We accept only a small, select group of cases. When you come to us, you will get personal attention — you will be treated like a person, not a case file. Your case will be handled by an experienced lawyer from beginning to end, never passed off to an inexperienced associate or paralegal.
Most importantly, we tailor our representation to the specific needs of every client. A victim of an unfair business practice has different needs than that of an employee who has not been paid all wages due. A whistleblower in a government qui tam case requires strict confidentiality and aggressive representation. We take pride in developing innovative, effective solutions for the variety of issues our clients face. We handle our cases on a contingency basis, thus allowing greater access to the courts for our clients.

Areas of Law Description
Emge & Associates represents clients in the following areas of practice:
- Employment Law
The lawyers at Emge & Associates will meet with you free of charge to discuss the specifics of your case. Often, we may discover that your co-workers have also been treated illegally. We are specifically structured to handle complex employee class action lawsuits.
• Wage and Hour Laws
At Emge & Associates in San Diego, California, we believe that employees should be paid for all the hours they work. Both the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and California wage and hour laws make it illegal to not pay employees the money they have earned.
• Worker Misclassification
This worker misclassification is illegal, and the lawyers of Emge & Associates are devoted to taking companies who break these laws to court. In a free initial consultation, our employment law attorneys can meet with you and figure out whether employee misclassification has occurred.
• Employee Class Action
Often when a person is the victim of an employer's labor code violations, he or she is uneasy at the thought of challenging the company alone. Sometimes it simply isn't worth the trouble; the possible gains are too small to make a lawsuit or other confrontation worthwhile, and the company may just ignore.
• Expense Reimbursement Claims
When an employer requires an employee to wear a uniform, they must provide those uniforms or reimburse the employee for what the company required them to purchase. Many employers refuse to properly reimburse their employees. At Emge & Associates, we represent employees who do not receive expense reimbursement as the law states.
• Employee Class Action Lawsuits
Hiring an experienced class action litigation lawyer can strengthen your position against employers. The lawyers of San Diego-based Emge & Associates are very experienced in handling class action lawsuits against powerful businesses and large employers.

We know how to investigate and litigate false advertising practices, and have a proven ability to get results in class action lawsuits.
• Unfair Business Practices
Our attorneys will examine the facts of your situation to see whether or not you have an individual or class action claim. If our investigation uncovers unfair, illegal or fraudulent business practices, we may aggressively represent you and a class of similarly situated victims.
• Hidden Bank Charges
Consumer fraud can have a small effect on one person but multiplied by two million, the case will have large impact. The attorneys at Emge & Associates vigorously represent consumers. Our attorneys are experienced in handling complex class action litigation cases that have benefited millions of people.

• Product Warranties
Our legal team at Emge & Associates is available to meet with you for a free consultation to discuss the specific of your claim. Initially, we will separate the oral statements that the sales representative made to you from the advertisement about the product warranty or mail-in-rebate.
• Real Estate Fraud
