Oakland Employment Lawyer
We’re Leveling the Playing Field and Righting Wrongs for Employees
From discrimination to harassment to wrongful termination, if your employer has treated you unfairly, Venardi Zurada will vigorously pursue the financial compensation you deserve. Contact our experienced Oakland employment lawyers today for more information or assistance.
What Makes Us Different? – Contingency Pricing
In most employment law cases, we work on a contingency-fee-basis, meaning if we don’t make a recovery for you, we will not collect a fee. We believe it’s the right thing to do, and it means that you have nothing to lose and everything to gain from demanding justice when you’ve been wronged.
Unfortunately, most employers are more knowledgeable about employment law than their employees are. They also tend to have a relationship with a lawyer or law firm. Both of these factors put you at a disadvantage—that is, until you bring us into the conversation.
With us by your side, the playing field is level, and your employer will either right the wrongs that have been committed voluntarily or at the direction of the court.
Laws Exist to Protect Employees, and We Make Sure They Do
Our team is both respected in our industry and successful in the courtroom, having achieved a 99 percent favorable judgement rate at trial.
At Venardi Zurada, we work with clients from all walks of life and in a wide variety of industries, including restaurant, retail, technology, manufacturing, medical, construction, and more.
In each of these business environments, there are laws that employers must follow regarding the fair treatment of their employees.
For example, employers:
- Cannot discriminate based on race, religion, gender, nationality, disability, or many other factors
- Must assure proper pay to employees
- Must allow meal and rest breaks
- Are required to compensate employees for overtime
- Must correctly classify an employee’s work and pay them appropriately
And the list of much-needed protections for employees goes on. Read more about the types of claims we negotiate, settle, or take before a judge and jury for employees by following the links below.
We Also Provide Invaluable Assistance in Employment Negotiations
In addition to seeking compensation for people who have been wronged by their employer, we also assist clients who are negotiating severance and other issues as they leave or enter an organization. Having representation in those situations can be critical to ensuring you are dealt with fairly. Call now to learn about this service.

You can be confident in relying on our zealous and effective Oakland litigators:
We have served Northern California for over 35 years.
Our attorneys have been honored with numerous accolades, including SuperLawyers, AV Rating, and Top 100 Trial Attorney Awards.
In our decades of legal service to the community, we have garnered a substantial reputation. We are respected by opposing counsel, feared by insurance companies, and followed by jurors.
We combine Big Firm experience with boutique office attention and care. Several of our attorneys have experience working for the biggest law firms in the country, including the most prominent maritime defense law firm. Our attorneys rely on that big-firm know-how but prefer the personal touch of a smaller firm, allowing us to provide individualized and attentive representation to each of our clients.
We’ve been through it, too. Attorney Mark Venardi had to personally deal with a medical malpractice injury he suffered at a time when he was working a blue-collar job on an offshore oil rig; he knows what it’s like to be a working man dealing with a personal injury. He built his way up to working for the biggest maritime defense firm in the country, before deciding to focus on helping people like himself who were hurt by negligence and mistreatment from others.
We like to fight for the underdog. Attorney Martin Zurada is an immigrant and the son of immigrants who tirelessly worked his way up through education and experience to attain the American dream. Even though he has served in large, high-level litigation law firms, he prefers helping clients directly, fighting against injustices, and securing victories for the little guy who has been wronged.
We win. We have secured multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. In our combined tenure, we have recovered tens of millions of dollars for our clients across our broad areas of practice.
We care first and foremost about our clients. We dedicate ourselves to serve each and every client personally, and we make ourselves available to our clients around the clock.
There is no cost to you until we win. If we don’t make a recovery for you, we will not collect a fee. And all initial consultations are free of charge.
Dedicated Areas of Practice
We offer a wide range of litigation services for Oakland personal injury and employment law clients. Specifically, our areas of dedicated practice span the following issues:
Employment Law. California employers must assure proper pay to employees and comply with a variety of rules and regulations to prevent discrimination and unfair treatment of employees. We represent victims of wage and hour violations, employment discrimination, workplace harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, and any other form of California workplace mistreatment. If you believe you were treated inappropriately at work, we can help.
Personal Injury. If you’ve been injured due to another’s negligence, you deserve compensation. That’s where we come in. As Oakland personal injury attorneys, we right the wrongs done to our clients. And we do it at our cost during the entire duration of your case. There is never any fee until we win. Give us a call if you have been hurt in a car accident, by a toxic spill or contamination, as a result of medical malpractice, due to abuse or neglect, in a maritime accident, by a vicious animal attack, or any other incident caused by someone else’s negligence.
