If You Have a Labor Board Hearing in San Diego... You Came to the Right Place (619) 793-4827

Our Labor Board Hearing lawyers have been representing both employers and employees at Labor Board hearings since about 1984. Many Labor Board Hearing firms represent one side or the other. With many years of litigation experience, we have learned that representing both sides at the Labor Board has been an invaluable experience in understanding how the other side thinks and acts.

With the recent changes such as SB (Senate Bill) 459, employers have been challenged more than ever. Being an employer in San Diego is no easy task. What most employers do not realize, to their own detriment, is that they need need need representation at these hearings. Out of principal, many go there and fight out their position, only to walk out with a massive fine. Employees, on the other hand, often do much better with a Labor Board Hearing lawyer because there are other laws some employers have violated that they may not be aware of, leading to a greater settlement.

I am working with Steven Ryznik for our immigration matter. He is amazing and I can say that with confidence since I have met with numerous immigration lawyers and had two previous lawyers screwing up our case. He is very knowledgeable, returns calls within 10 minutes, in other ...

Steven is a fantastic lawyer - not just because he won me a nice settlement last year but because he never tries to nickle and dime me. He is very easy to get in contact with and has offered me plenty of free advice that has saved me a lot ...

Absolutely wonderful. Was honest about my situation and didn't push me for services since I didn't need them. Helped me out with one question and didn't charge me.

Mr. Riznyk is by far the most well rounded attorney that I have had the opportunity to meet. His experience and negotiation skills are two things you must have on your side when dealing with any business litigation matter. He was very willing to help even late in the day ...

I was very happy with my free initial consultation with the lead attorney at San Diego Biz Law. He was very knowledgeable, and he gave me considerable useful information.

A "Lawyer in Style" is probably the best way to describe my experience with Mr. Riznyk.I had an issue with my Home Owner Association, where I found them in violation of the very governing documents they are supposed to uphold. I had to get a legal advice on the ...

Since i moved here from Los Angeles a few years ago I didn't know many lawyers but a good friend recommend that I meet Steven Riznyk from San Diego biz law. My meeting with Steven was excellent. He understood my problems and assured me that all that was ...

I never felt alone along the process. Whenever Mike or I had any confusion it was promptly cleared up by the lawyer’s office, by either the lawyer Steven Riznyk himself or his very capable and friendly assistant, Emily Butler. Many thanks for sticking with us throughout the application process. Since ...

"I was accused of a hit and run. The police towed my vehicle and wanted to impound it for a week which would have cost me over $2000.00. Mr. Riznyk negotiated with the police sergeant to have my car released the same day and to drop the charges. I was ...

There are some great employers (most) and there are some bad employers, and that is why employees need representation. The bad ones seem to more than make up for the good ones, by taking advantage of the very people who support them. On the flip side, there are some great employees (most) and some downright bad employees, and employers need to protect themselves. We have dealt with some complex cases where employers have been set up by their employees and what surprises us is that they are so angry that they go to the hearing without a Labor Board Hearing lawyer out of principal just to show how right they are. Regrettably, there is nothing worse than getting angry at a Labor Board Hearing.


Credibility is a factor to be considered, not only in a Labor Board Hearing, but in any proceeding. We are all human, and being taken advantage of is the worst thing that can happen to us. It’s normal to get upset but it will still cost you dearly. You have to come across as a reasonable person or you will certainly not endear the judge. That is one of the many reasons why it works to have a Labor Board Hearing lawyer represent you.

Call us today at 619-793-4827 and let’s look at the case together. Please don’t wait until something bad has happened to hire us. Appeals have a very small chance of winning. Moreover, an appeal can only be based on the facts that were presented at the hearing. If you are upset or angry, all you need to do is forget one very important issue and it’s all over. Labor Board Hearing law, next to family law, is one of the most emotional areas of law we have ever dealt with and so many mistakes are made because people go to Labor Board Hearings without a lawyer.



Our first discussion should be about understanding all of the facts of the case. Then, we look at the law. Last, but not least, it’s all about Strategy. Many lawyers simply use a legal perspective. That is not always enough. Strategy and negotiation are critical, and we have a high-level negotiator on staff, one of the country’s top 36 people. He will inject strategy into the case so that your Labor Board Hearing is successful. Remember the definition of a great negotiator: Someone who can tell you to go to hell in such a way you look forward to the trip. This is what he does to the other side.

Another advantage of having a negotiator on your team is that in many cases we resolve the case before it goes to all the way to a Labor Board Hearing. That’s called being a negotiator and businessperson, not just a lawyer. Call now and see why people drive all the way from LA (which is filled with lawyers) to deal with us. Call 619-793-4827. We often work late and weekends so feel free to call now, regardless of what time it is. We look forward to working with you.
