Read Our Client Reviews

I called Nick Ferraro because of all the outstanding reviews I read about him. After working with Nick, I have to say that even the best reviews do not even do him justice. Nick is the most thorough and responsive attorney I have ever encountered. His follow up and attention to detail are impeccable. It is obvious he knows every facet of employment law like the back of his hand. On top of all that, Nick is just the friendliest person – even though we did not meet in person due to Covid-19, I felt like I already knew him through our phone chats and email correspondence. In short, Nick Ferraro is beyond outstanding and I would recommend no other attorney except Nick for any work-related matter.


Highly recommend this firm for their professionalism and commitment to their clients. Lauren Vega is a world-class lawyer! She is a great listener and clear communicator, which is exactly what you need in a situation that can be full of stress and uncertainty.


I am incredibly impressed with Nick and the work he does. He is knowledgeable, smart, diligent, patient and articulate – he knows his stuff and is thorough with his research. Unlike most lawyers I’ve come across in the past, he’s actually a nice guy who is sincere and genuinely cares about helping others. It was such a pleasure to work with him. He was understanding of my frustrations and listened to my concerns without minimizing or making assumptions. He was thoughtful and intuitive in his approach and explained things very clearly. If it weren’t for him, I’d still be tolerating an unfair work situation. I highly recommend him and would definitely turn to him again for help if the need were to arise.


Ferraro Employment Law was referred to me by another attorney who had nothing but positive comments and praise regarding this firm. Lauren Vega and Nick Ferraro are exceptional attorneys. Lauren Vega was extremely professional throughout our entire time working together and I felt that I could really trust her expertise. Her extensive knowledge, patience, and commitment to her clients really shows through and I can’t thank her enough for all the hard work Lauren has put into helping me. Lauren really took the time to help me understand the in’s and out’s of the legal process and answered all of my questions -which I know for most can be confusing and unfamiliar territory. I highly recommend Ferraro Employment Law.


I had the very good fortune to be referred to Nick Ferraro by a good family friend who happens to work in HR. While working with Nick, I have felt assured through the whole process that I have a lawyer that has the experience, is ethical, and can smoothly navigate through a very difficult, sudden termination of employment.

I trusted Nick from the very first conversation I had with him late on a Friday afternoon. By Monday morning, I felt I had a trusted adviser and someone that could navigate me through this difficult process.


I spoke with several lawyers about my situation, and only one or two were as kind and considerate as Nick. The others were hyper-concerned about whether or not they would make ‘enough’ money on the case, namely the contingency-based attorneys. Nick, on the other hand, cares about doing the right thing and helping people in need. You will find that he is a stand-up guy and an all-round decent human being. Not only is he these things, but he is also hard-working and highly effective. He was able to successfully play the games the company and their lawyers were playing in order to double the severance that they originally offered.

Representing Aggrieved Workers in all Employment Disputes

San Diego Wage and Hour Disputes

Wage and Hour Disputes

Under California labor law, hourly workers are entitled to overtime pay if their workday exceeds 8 hours. Employers are legally required to pay overtime, and failing to do so can result in some harsh penalties. If you’ve been deprived of overtime pay, our attorneys can help you file a claim, secure the compensation to which you’re entitled, and hold your employer accountable.

San Diego Wrongful Termination

Wrongful Termination

While it’s true that most employment contracts are “at will,” there are some reasons that simply can’t be used as the basis for an employee’s termination. You can’t be fired for reporting misconduct, nor can you be let go because you refuse to reciprocate your boss’s sexual advances. If you suspect that your termination was unlawful, our legal team will help you gather the proof that will be needed to file a successful legal action against your employer.

View practice area
Bonuses and Commissions San Diego

Bonuses & Commissions

The terms of an employment contract are binding. If yours entitles you to bonuses and commissions when certain milestones are achieved, your boss is legally required to extend that compensation to you. If you’ve been deprived of bonuses and commissions that you’re rightfully due in the course of employment, it is important to take immediate steps to hold your employer to account. Filing a legal action can force their hand and get the money you’re owed in your hands.

Vacation PTO San Diego

Vacation & PTO

PTO and vacation days are wages that, if offered by an employer in California, can’t be revoked. Nor do they expire. If you leave your place of employment, the value of any accrued vacation time must be paid to you. Employers often try to sidestep paying employees for the wages they’ve earned. Our attorneys know these tactics all too well – and can help you put an end to an illegal withholding of compensation you deserve.

View practice area
Meal and Rest Breaks San Diego

Meal & Rest Breaks

If you’re an hourly worker, California law says that you’re entitled to meal and rest breaks. If those aren’t provided, your paycheck must reflect an extra hour’s worth of work. Unfortunately, meal and rest break violations are often front-and-center in employment matters. Our attorneys will help you fight to secure back pay you’re owed if your employer didn’t give you time to rest while you were on the clock.

Discrimination San Diego


Workplace discrimination is explicitly prohibited under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). It’s prohibited under Federal law, too. This means that you can’t be mistreated or deprived of opportunity because of a protected characteristic (e.g., sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, disability, marital status, age, or military status). If you believe that you’ve been the victim of discrimination at work, our legal team will dig deep to gather proof and initiate legal action against your employer.

Sexual Harassment San Diego

Sexual Harassment

Under California state law, all workers are entitled to be treated with dignity and respect. Sexual harassment  – either quid pro quo or repeated advances that create a hostile work environment – makes that impossible. Victims of sexual harassment in San Diego can pursue compensation for fallout – including damages for lost wages, medical expenses, and emotional distress and suffering.

San Diego Class Actions

Class Actions

When multiple employees are mistreated by an employer, a class action lawsuit can be a successful tool. Our law group represents employees in PAGA wage and hour class actions, as well as cases involving other egregious violations of California labor and employment law. If your employer has violated the law and you’ve suffered as a result, we might be able to help you fight for a just result.

San Diego Leaves and Accomodation

Leaves & Accommodations

Some workers require certain accommodations to help them do their jobs. Others need time off to tend to a medical issue at home. Both California and Federal law (e.g., FEHA, FMLA, ADA) provide that employers must ensure that workers have the opportunity to take leave and have access to necessary accommodations, without repercussion or consequence. If your employer failed to provide accommodations or refused to allow you to take leave, it is important to consult our attorneys. We can help you fight for what you need and protect your job at the same time.
