Since new staff members were just hired, I think it only makes sense to expand management to accommodate the larger staff as well to keep us organized and on track to meet tight deadlines.

Everyone here is like family to me. There are plenty of year round event's that take place and everyone is a close friend of mines. Everyone is always there to help you when needed as well.

As of right now I feel as though we are ever so slightly disorganized due to the fact that we have been taking on more cases than we can handle ever since we hired a bunch of new staff members.

Try to garner completion in a friendly way that is good for the employee yet good for the business as well. This will make things great.

Working here makes you realize what working at a firm should be like. Everyone is very friendly and genuine. Everyone works together.

There tends to be a lot of competition and that can get stressful at times. Sometimes I need to take breaks from the stress.

Discover the Excitement of Working at CDF Labor Law LLP

CDF Labor Law LLP has established itself as one of California's leading employment, labor, and immigration firms. With a strong focus on representing employers in single-plaintiff and class action lawsuits, as well as providing legal compliance and risk avoidance advice, CDF is dedicated to protecting businesses across the state. With five locations from Sacramento to San Diego, CDF is well-positioned to serve clients statewide.

Reflecting on the firm's launch in 1994, founding partner Marie DiSante is both struck by and proud of how much of the partners' original vision continues to shape the firm today. From the very beginning, the partners aimed to offer the depth of experience and skills found in big law firms, but with a twist. Quicker decision-making, more creative pricing options, increased flexibility with staffing and case management, a greater emphasis on client education, and a collaborative practice were all part of the partners' grand scheme.

One of the key goals for founding partners DiSante, Timothy Freudenberger, and Christopher Carlton was to position the firm as entrepreneurial as their clients' businesses. They wanted to practice as "business people and lawyers rolled into one." Leveraging their experiences as labor and employment law counselors, all with AmLaw 100 firms, they established CDF in Orange County. The firm's first clients included South Coast Plaza, The Vons Companies, and several manufacturers, all of whom remain loyal clients to this day.

CDF began with a small team of six attorneys and five staff members, but its growth has been carefully managed to meet the needs of clients and the state's expanding economy. By 2000, CDF had expanded its reach to include offices in Orange County, San Francisco, Sacramento, San Diego, and Los Angeles. In 2011, attorney Dave Carothers became a name partner, further solidifying the firm's reputation and expertise. Today, CDF is home to over 40 attorneys and 45 staff members, many of whom have been with the firm for more than a decade.

Joining CDF Labor Law LLP comes with a multitude of benefits. As an attorney or staff member, you'll have the opportunity to work with a team of highly experienced professionals who are dedicated to providing exceptional service to clients. The firm's commitment to quick decision-making means that you'll have the autonomy to make a real impact on cases and client outcomes. Additionally, CDF's creative pricing options and flexible staffing and case management approach ensure that you'll have the resources and support you need to succeed.

At CDF, client education is a top priority. You'll have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge and expertise in employment, labor, and immigration law through ongoing training and professional development programs. This commitment to education not only benefits clients but also fosters a culture of continuous learning and growth within the firm.

Collaboration is at the heart of CDF's practice. Working alongside colleagues who are passionate about their work and dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes for clients creates a dynamic and engaging work environment. The firm's collaborative approach extends to its relationships with clients, ensuring that every decision and strategy is made with their best interests in mind.

CDF Labor Law LLP is proud to represent regional, national, and global employers with workforces throughout California.

In conclusion, working at CDF Labor Law LLP offers attorneys and staff an exciting and fulfilling career.
