Customized Workplace Law Solutions for Employers and Employees

“If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.”

San Francisco Employment Attorneys

For more than a decade, Rukin Hyland Doria & Tindall has provided employment law advice and representation to workers, executives, and businesses throughout California and across the United States. We offer clients the exceptional work quality of a large San Francisco law firm coupled with the responsiveness and individual attention our clients expect from a small firm. Our attorneys have deep and varied experiences litigating employment law claims on behalf of a large range of clients. As a Daily Journal Article profiling our practice highlights, those experiences give us a valuable perspective on employment law matched by few other firms.

The attorneys at Rukin Hyland Doria & Tindall represent workers in individual and class action lawsuits, provide businesses with compliance counseling and litigation defense, conduct workplace trainings and investigations, and advise executives regarding executive compensation, non-compete agreements, and cross-border contract issues. Our expertise runs the gamut — from whistleblower, overtime, disability discrimination, employee misclassification and sexual harassment claims to workplace privacy and trade secret matters.

Clients come to us because we are workplace problem solvers. We do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to resolving employment disputes, but instead tailor a plan that best suits a client’s needs and goals. Our work begins with defining the client’s interests and working closely with the client to map a strategy for a successful outcome. We understand that success for the client may mean more than simply winning the next motion. A successful litigation strategy demands careful consideration of the client’s goals and the likely cost (both financial and personal) of obtaining the desired result. We evaluate cases early, negotiate effectively, and litigate tenaciously and strategically. We have built advanced eDiscovery and other leading-edge legal technology into our practice platform and use that technology to litigate our cases efficiently.

We are selective in the cases we take so that we can devote our full attention to the clients whom we represent. Our reputation among judges, co-counsel, opposing counsel, and clients is impeccable. Please call or email us to learn more about what we can do for you.
