Her practice focuses exclusively on employment-related matters such as wrongful termination, discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, wage and hour violations, and disability accommodation. Because Ms. Serkova practices only in one area of law, she excels in it and her clients may rest assured that she knows all the nuances of handling an employment law matter.
Ms. Serkova earned undergraduate degree from UCLA and graduated cum laude from Whittier Law School. She is committed to fighting for employee rights and obtaining justice for the wronged, hard-working people. Ms. Serkova is a strategic and aggressive negotiator and effective litigator who provides tactical, personalized representation focused on each client’s individual goals and circumstances. She successfully negotiated and settled potential lawsuits even prior to the filing of a case while attaining six-figure settlements.
Ms. Serkova understands how painful and embarrassing it may feel not only to lose one's job but being terminated for a false reason. A lot of people feel uncomfortable telling someone they have been fired. However, unlawful termination is extremely common and employees should not try to litigate a case on their own. Not only they do not know all the pitfalls defense attorneys will set for them but having an attorney automatically increases the value of a case. Ms. Serkova provides free consultations and represents employees on contingency basis, meaning there is no charge unless there is a settlement or a verdict.
Ms. Serkova is an active member of the Orange County Bar Association and California Employment Lawyers Association. She is licensed to practice before all courts of the State of California.
