Attorney Louis H. Kreuzer II

Employment cases are difficult to navigate and require good teamwork between the client and the attorney. You must be comfortable working with an attorney before embarking on litigation.  That’s why finding an experienced lawyer you can trust is so important.

For over twenty years, I have been advocating for people mistreated at work.  I understand how it feels when you lose your job; how unemployment threatens the emotional and financial well-being of you and your family.  In addition to helping individual workers recover compensation, I handle complex employment litigation including class action suits on behalf of employees.  As a result of these efforts, my client have recovered millions of dollars in back pay and damages.

From the beginning of my legal career, I have worked in the area of employment law and civil rights litigation on behalf of employees. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Political Science, Slavic Languages and Literature, and Soviet and East European Studies from University of Kansas in 1987; and earned a Master of Arts in Film and Media Studies from the University of Kansas in 1991.  In 1992, I received my Juris Doctorate from California Western School of Law.

In addition to my practice, I serve as a fee arbitrator for the Ventura County Bar Association. I have had the honor of being the President of the Ventura County Mexican-American Bar Association and the Chairperson of the Ventura County Diversity Bar Alliance.  Additionally,  I am a longtime member of the California Employment Lawyers Association (CELA) and have given presentations on employment law issues.

Employment Law

Besides having a lawyer you can trust, it is important to have an attorney who is focused on employment law.  Courts are constantly publishing new employment law cases.  What the law considers wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, reasonable accommodation, an exempt employee, is always evolving.  Over the past 20 years I have seen a number of trends in employment law come and go. What may have been legal yesterday, may not be so today.  Most people don’t know their workplace rights and unfortunately some employers try deny them to their workers or misinform them.

If you believe that your rights have been violated, please call me at (805) 383-4131 to learn more about your rights in the workplace. All legal consultations are confidential and the first legal consultation is free.  I have advised clients of their workplace rights and helped them recover what they are owed for employment issues such as:

  • Wage and hour violations, including missed meal and rest breaks
  • Wrongful termination, implied contract and at-will employment
  • Harassment and hostile work environment claims
  • Discrimination due to disability, age, sex, and race or ethnic group
  • Retaliation and defamation claims
  • Whistleblower claims
  • Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and other leave of absence violations
  • Employment contracts, severance and benefits negotiations


STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS WARNING There are limited time periods (deadlines) for filing claims that apply to legal matters.
