Bitton & Associates takes on big companies and big firms to protect the interests and fight for the rights of individuals, their families and businesses.
If your employer makes you use your car or cellphone for your work, or if you are required to buy supplies, uniforms, tools, pay for parking and spend money for the benefit of your employer, you should be getting reimbursed – If you’re not, you may have a case.
You should get paid for all the time you work. Employers regularly do not pay for all hours worked, do not pay overtime when they should, pay improper salaries to avoid overtime, and do not properly pay commissions, bonuses, spiffs, and tips. If you think this is happening to you, you may have a case.
There are times when employees need to take a leave of absence from work. This may be because of a pregnancy, an illness, the need to care for loved one, or it may be for military service, jury duty, or due to a disability. When such a need arises the law affords employment protection in certain circumstances. If your employer is not working with you, or retaliates against you due to your need for such a leave, you may have a case.
Your employer and its executives, supervisors, and employees may not discriminate against you or harass you based on your race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, or military and veteran status. If they do, you may have a case.
If you are injured at work or while working, you have rights. You may seek treatment and compensation through workers’ compensation, you may be entitled to a work accommodation, and you may need to take a protected disability leave. If your employer does not offer you workers’ compensation, does not provide you a reasonable accommodation, or in away retaliates against you due to your injury, you may have a case.
Are you working for home after work. Are you on call. Do you take care of administrative tasks or review and respond to e-mails after work from home? If so, you may be entitled to additional compensation. Also, does your employer pay you like an independent contractor but treat you like an employee. If so, you may have a case.
Ophir Bitton is one terrific attorney. He represented me in a very complicated eviction case. He immediately explained to me the best approaches in dealing with a difficult owner. Mr Ophir got me a result that was very satisfying. If you want a solid, hard working, intelligent attorney, Ophir Bittton is your man.
I Am So Happy!
I am so happy with Ophir Bitton on my side! I was owed a large sum of money from someone that had just ignored me when the job was done. I had only a verbal agreement with this person, but Ophir guided me and helped me gather all the evidence and proof of the job that I was hired for and then sent a VERY strong letter to that person from his office. The deadbeat immediately admitted to owing the full amount and asked for a one week extension to the date that Ophir had given him to pay. I just got word that he brought the full payment in the form of a cashier’s check to Ophir’s office. I got paid in full and I didn’t even have to deal with the person to get my money. Ophir has done a terrific job for me and I couldn’t be happier! I gladly refer all of my friends to Ophir Bitton that are in need of his services. I highly recommend Bitton Law!
Great Lawyer, When I needed it Most
I was laid off from my job after over 10 years. I called a few lawyers I found on the internet and they all told me the same thing, I did not have a case. A friend referred me to Bitton & Associates, I called and they agreed, there was nothing I could do about being let go. I spoke with Ophir Bitton and he asked me a bunch of questions. He discovered that I was not being paid by the law. We filed a case for my overtime and lunches. I used to get paid a flat amount every two weeks. No one told me that I should get overtime and breaks before. A few months after we filed the case settled. I was still looking for work so the timing was great.
Ophir Bitton truly cares about his clients and about achieving the best possible result for them. He is smart, intuitive and responsive. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone who is tenacious, diligent and professional in every sense of the word.
Fixed My Employer!!!!
Bitton & Associates filed a class action against my employer (I’m still there). I was always complaining about the work conditions, not getting paid properly, not getting breaks, and lots of other uncool stuff. After the lawsuit was filed almost immediately the working conditions improved for me and everyone else too! We felt so powerless before the lawsuit. Bitton turned it all around. Me and m y co-workers all got checks in the mail. Its been about a year now and it’s night and day. I actually like my job now. Thanks Bitton!!!! 🙂
Excellent Employment Lawyer
I was working for a nursery school and was wrongly fired and not paid the way I should have been paid. Ophir accepted my case after I was turned down by someone else. The case settled and I was very happy. At first I was very stressed about going with a lawyer. Ophir and his staff made me feel comfortable and explained everything I had questions about. I have recommended to this lawyer to a friend after my case and my friend was so happy too.
Accident Resolved Quickly and Above Expectations
I had an accident during a cruise. When I approached other lawyers upon my return I was told the waiver I signed meant I had no way of going after the cruise line and travel company. Ophir at Bitton and Associates took my case and told me we would fight the waiver. The case was handled quickly. Ophir and his staff kept me informed and reduced my stress. They fought the waiver and we were able to settle and move on. I almost gave up on finding an attorney. I’m thankful a friend referred me to Bitton and Associates.
Prompt and Professional Service
Mr. Bitton has handled several of my legal cases. He is prompt and professional in handling any type of situation, even last minute legal needs. You are constantly updated and informed by his office throughout the whole case.
Trustworthy, effective, and dedicated!
It is rare to come across a professional you can not only trust implicitly, but is also hard working and extremely effective at their job…especially in the legal profession. In an industry where people typically doubt the motives or integrity of the person they hire, Ophir Bitton is a shining example of what should be expected in a lawyer. He works tirelessly for his clients, is transparent and great about giving advice, and he is successful at winning cases. My wife and I have both been very satisfied with the services (and results) provided by Bitton & Assiciates, and we have recommended Mr. Bitton to dozens of others with the same satisfaction.
I cannot say enough about the integrity and quality of work Mr. Bitton provides and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a lawyer they can trust and who wins cases.
Wonderful Lawyer! Very Happy with the outcome of my case!!
i had met with a few lawyers regarding a legal matter, i was told by all of them i didn’t have a strong case, but after ophir bitton met with me, he was very well informed on the law and won my case for me. i am forever greatfull!!
Extremely satisfied with his services. A man of integrity. Very knowledgeable about all legal matters.
I just finished a case with Ophir and I must say, I am extremely satisfied not only with my outcome, but with how he handled this case. Ophir is a man of integrity. Has much class. Honest and reliable. The amount of time he spent just on the phone with me, explaining the details, pros and cons of my case were priceless. Not only did he handle this case extremely well, to get me an outcome I would never have even dreamed of, but he was always very supportive of me as his client, and of my needs, even if he didn’t agree. He is VERY knowledgeable of all aspects of law. His expertise in employment matters is remarkable. He is a superb litigator. I am very happy with how he handled my case and highly recommend him.
Mr. Bitton is a very well-rounded practitioner of law. He approaches both his business and clients with uncompromised professionalism, making his trustworthiness and work ethic nearly implied.
Also, Mr. Bitton is particularly well versed in business matters, particularly real estate, and I highly recommend his advisory as well as service.
Honest and Aggressive litigator
Mr. Bitton has taken care of many cases for my family. We are all very grateful for all the hard work he has done for us. His best policy would have to be the free phone calls. Our other lawyers would charge for every minute we spent on the phone, saying their time is valuable. This attorney does not charge to speak to his clients on the phone and is readily available to answer questions and coach/counsel before trials. He is honest and trustworthy. If you don’t have a good case he will be upfront with you. Not your typical money hungry Los Angeles attorney who tries to make everything into a lawsuit. He settles cases quick and listens first to his client, always putting their needs first. He has a great reputation amongst other lawyers and believe it or not he was referred to us by a lawyer he had gone to trial against several years prior. So far we have been satisfied with his work and we will continue to use him to represent us and our family business.
