I was rear ended in an auto accident. The other driver fled the scene. My auto insurance decided they wanted to be of little help. They lied, denied me medical coverage, and strung me along for 5 months before finally totaling my vehicle. I was left in a medical/ auto limbo with no one to help since my insurance wouldn't answer my calls/ emails. It wasn’t until HHJ trial attorneys got involved that my insurance started providing the coverage they were suppose to from the start. Kamil Robinson from HHJ was there every step of the way to explain things and answer any questions no matter what time of day. First and foremost he made sure I received the medical care I needed and made sure my auto insurance held up their end of the bargain. Kamil along with Freesia Farris really helped me navigate and move past an unpleasant situation I was dealt. If it wasn’t for HHJ the outcome would have been a lot different. Thanks again Kamil and everyone at HHJ!

I consulted with Emma for an employment issue. I was under a lot of stress and she was absolutely kind, patient and compassionate and listened to all the details of my issue. Although this was not a topic of their practice, she spent time providing me several resources that could help me and get me started. I felt cared for by her welcoming communication and not rushed even though she knew she wouldn’t be able to help or make money from my case, that didn’t prevent her from supporting me and give me recommendations. Thank you Emma 🙏

Michael and his team were so great during this entire process. They helped me to get a pretty significant settlement from my case and they were never delayed in any of the processes. I am confident that had I not "fired" the first attorney that I started to work with and called HHJ trail attorneys, I would not have gotten the results that I got with HHJ. You can't go wrong with working with these guys to settle your case.

Michael and the HHJ staff were extremely helpful from the start of my case less than a year ago. From the time I had my accident, to having doctor appointments set up to the final conclusion, it couldn’t have been a smoother process from beginning to end. Michael is very detailed and organized and always has your best interest at heart. He is very responsive and is always on top of it. I didn’t have to do much other than show up to my doctor appts and respond with info that was needed. I would without a beat use Michael and his team again if needed. HHJ is the best in Southern California!

Mr. Adam Hepburn and his firm, HHJ Trial Attorneys, took on our legal case. Mr. Adam Hepburn came recommended, luckily. We can't thank Mr. Adam Hepburn and his firm for their stellar work throughout our entire legal case. If I had any questions or concerns, Mr. Adam Hepburn would quickly address my concerns either via email, cell phone or even on text. Mr. Adam Hepburn was very truthful, thoughtful when explaining the facts of my case, and extremely professional. If you're on the fence with hiring Adam Hepburn and his firm, don't be, he's the best in the field. Adam won my case! Must hire him and his firm if you need his type of services.

Carlsbad's Best Pregnancy Discrimination Attorneys Helping To Defend Your Rights

If you’re pregnant or planning to become pregnant, you may have questions about your rights and obligations as an employee. You may also wonder if you’ve been discriminated against because of your pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical condition, or perhaps you’d like to be prepared in case you face such treatment. Here, our pregnancy discrimination attorneys will guide you through your rights, obligations, and legal options as a pregnant or soon-to-be pregnant employee.

What Is Pregnancy Discrimination?

Pregnancy discrimination is a form of sex discrimination that occurs when an employer treats a pregnant employee or applicant unfavorably because of her pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical condition.


Pregnancy discrimination can take many forms, such as:


  • Refusing to hire, promote, or retain a pregnant employee or applicant
  • Demoting, terminating, or reducing the pay or benefits of a pregnant employee
  • Denying or interfering with a pregnant employee’s right to take pregnancy disability leave, parental leave, or reasonable accommodation
  • Harassing, isolating, or retaliating against a pregnant employee for requesting or taking leave or accommodation
  • Creating or maintaining a hostile or unsafe work environment for a pregnant employee


Pregnancy discrimination can affect employees in any industry, occupation, or position. It’s also important to note that it can affect employees who are not pregnant but are perceived to be pregnant or intend to become pregnant.

What Are the Laws That Protect Pregnant Employees?

Pregnant employees are protected by both federal and state laws that prohibit pregnancy discrimination and require employers to provide certain benefits and accommodations to pregnant employees. 


Some of the most important laws protecting such employees include the following.

#1 – The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA)

This is a federal law that applies to employers with 15 or more employees. The PDA prohibits employers from discriminating against employees or applicants on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. 


The PDA also requires employers to treat pregnancy-related conditions as any other temporary disability and provide the same benefits and accommodations as they do for other disabled employees.

#2 – The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA)

This is a state law that applies to employers with five or more employees. The FEHA prohibits employers from discriminating against employees or applicants also on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. 


The FEHA requires employers to provide up to four months of pregnancy disability leave (PDL) to employees disabled by pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions and to return them to their same or comparable position after the leave. 


The FEHA also requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to pregnant employees who request it, such as modifying work duties, providing a stool or chair, or allowing frequent breaks.

#3 – The California Family Rights Act (CFRA)

This is another state law that applies to employers with 50 or more employees. The CFRA allows eligible employees to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave in a 12-month period for the birth, adoption, or foster care placement of a child or for the serious health condition of the employee or a family member. 


The CFRA also requires employers to maintain the employee’s health insurance coverage during the leave and to return the employee to the same or comparable position after the leave.

#4 – The California Labor Code

Finally, this is yet another state law that applies to all employers. The Labor Code provides various rights and protections to pregnant employees, such as:


  • The right to take a reasonable amount of break time and use a room or other location in close proximity to the work area to express breast milk in private.
  • The right to receive state disability insurance (SDI) or paid family leave (PFL) benefits for pregnancy-related disability or bonding with a new child.
  • The right to use any accrued vacation, sick, or other paid time off during pregnancy disability leave or parental leave, at the employee’s discretion.
  • The right to be free from retaliation or discrimination for exercising any of these rights.

Consulting with an experienced pregnancy discrimination lawyer will help you identify the state and federal laws that apply to your case.

How Can I Prove Pregnancy Discrimination?

Pregnancy discrimination can be hard to prove, especially if the employer does not explicitly state or admit that the adverse action was based on pregnancy. 


However, there are some ways to gather evidence and support your claim, such as:


  • Keeping a record of any comments, emails, memos, or other documents that show the employer’s attitude or behavior towards your pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical condition
  • Obtaining copies of your performance reviews, pay stubs, or other documents that show your work history and achievements before and after your pregnancy
  • Comparing your treatment with that of other employees who are not pregnant or have different pregnancy-related conditions
  • Obtaining statements or testimony from witnesses who can corroborate your experience or observations
  • Consulting with a medical expert who can explain how your pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical condition affected your ability to work


Consulting with a pregnancy discrimination attorney will also help you prove your case, either inside or outside of the courtroom.
