  • CLIENT TESTIMONIAL
    Jeannie M.
    I was able to buy a franchise and start my own business thanks to the hard work of Stephen Danz & Associates and the six figure settlement in my discrimination and wrongful termination case.  They were always available to answer my questions about what's next, which was most reassuring.
    Paige Guthrie and Susan Chapman
    We recommend the law firm Stephen Danz & Associates to address your employment-law needs. Their work culminated in our receiving a $650,000 settlement from the University of California Regents. We could not have asked for more involved, more skilled, and more caring attorneys.
