Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress
The concept of an NIED, or negligent infliction of emotional distress, is a claim that people, organizations, and companies have a legal duty to avoid causing emotional harm to other individuals.
Negligent Misrepresentation of Fact
Failure to exercise reasonable care when supplying information that could significantly impact one’s life is cause to validate negligent misrepresentation.

Have You Experienced Personal Injury Due to Mold Contamination While Living in Lincoln Military Housing?
In Late November of 2019, Webb Law Group filed a complaint with the Superior Court of the State of California.

Stars & Stripes Coverage – Lawsuits Filed in San Diego Over Marine Corps Families’ Housing Conditions

Webb Law Group attorneys lectured on wage and benefit issues that are commonly experienced by California employees and employers.
The Importance of Taking Action
Without that case number, without the lawsuit, without a filled complaint, you have nothing more than a breach of another agreement.
Handling Partnership Disputes
Entering into a business relationship with someone can often be a fun and exciting experience. Partners can be great to work with and may offer new, innovative concepts to develop your projects and ideas into realities. Additionally, partnerships can be a great way for budding businesses and firms to share expenses related to starting an entrepreneurial journey. However, these very common types of business collaborations can lead to some sticky situations if things go awry.
Understanding Fiduciary Duty
A fiduciary duty is an obligation to act in a person’s best interest, due to the nature of the relationship with that person. California law recognizes that there are relationships wherein one party places their trust and confidence in another, and that said relationships need to be regulated to ensure each party acts fairly and honestly.
The Importance of Communication
In my mind, there are times and places for face-to-face meetings, for a telephonic conference with your attorney. I encourage any client, though, to strongly consider the use of email with your attorney. The number one reason is accountability.
Labor Code Violations: Who’s Responsible?
According to California’s Labor Code § 558.1, an employing organization's managers, owners, directors, officers, and agents can be held personally liable for wage and hour violations. While it's true that (under certain circumstances) company employees who are sued may be indemnified by their employers, all companies have the responsibility to follow the law.
Pregnancy and Disability: Know Your Rights
On July 25th, 2011, appellant Ana Fuentes Sanchez filed a First Amendment Complaint against her former employer Swissport, Inc. She alleged causes of action for discrimination based on pregnancy disability, discrimination based on sex, and failure to prevent discrimination. Sanchez accused Swissport of failure to accommodate and engage in a timely, good faith interactive process. Additionally, she alleged retaliation, wrongful and tortious discharge from her position, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Finally, she claimed that Swissport had engaged in unfair business practices under California Business and Professions Codes, and breach of implied and/or express contract.
What Makes Someone an Independent Contractor?
On April 30, 2018, the California Supreme Court issued a decision on the Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court of Los Angeles case. On that day, the California Supreme Court reinterpreted and rejected the long-standing “Borello” test. This decision was made in order to grant workers greater rights and to encourage a more worker-friendly labor standard.
How to Manage Costs
A lot of our work is done in teams where you have a law clerk, paralegal, and an attorney all assigned to your matter. The end result of this is that you can effectively litigate without burning the budget.
Common Terms Used in Wills and Trusts
Use this helpful guide to breeze through the “legalese” only experienced law firms and legal teams are familiar with so you can better understand the documents left by your deceased friend or family member.
The challenges in a motion to strike or a demur is that in the early stages, the pleadings are taken as if everything said in the pleading (being the complaint) is true. You cannot bring in extrinsic evidence to argue or try to change or go in derogation of what's in the complaint and what's been pled.
Transactional Meets Litigation
There are two different classes of attorneys, as far as most legal work goes. There's transactional and litigation, and at our firm, we focus on litigation. The type of transactional work we typically do is a by-product of litigation.
Am I Responsible for Both Rental Car Keys?
Have you ever rented a car from a company like Avis, Alamo, Budget, Enterprise, or Hertz? Most people have, and you may have noticed something peculiar when you did. After all the documentation has been signed and you're ready to take possession of the vehicle, they hand you the key. However, they don't give you the key. Frequently, they instead hand you the keys - both of the car's keys, stuck together on an unbreakable steel lanyard. The company keeps no copies for themselves. They put you, the customer, in charge of ensuring they don't lose track of the expensive key and the spare.
Trial Lawyers vs Litigators
“Trial lawyer” and “litigator” are often interchanged as though they mean the same thing. A litigator may be a great trial lawyer, and a trial lawyer may also be a great litigator. However, there are differences in the terminology.
California Labor Violations & PAGA
PAGA authorizes aggrieved employees to file lawsuits to recover civil penalties on behalf of themselves, other employees, and the State of California for Labor Code violations. In essence, PAGA deputizes citizens and allows them to pursue penalties against employers on the government’s behalf. It is another avenue for current or former employees to take against an employer for violating CA employment law and offers certain benefits.
Clients have often asked me about contingency cases versus hourly cases. There is something that I firmly believe in because there are risks in both hourly cases and contingency cases.
Misrepresentation of Material Fact Law in California
A material fact is a fact that is important, significant or essential to a reasonable person in deciding whether to engage or not to engage in a particular transaction.
The Value of Service
A big motivator in lawsuits is expense, and one of the primary expenses for smaller lawsuits are the attorneys' fees. Attorneys' fees are incredibly expensive, they're prohibitive, they're why attorneys have a bad name some times, but to be honest, all the attorney has to sell is his time.
California Trust Litigation
Trust litigation cases can be some of the most emotionally draining cases you’ll encounter in a court room; comparable to divorce and/or child custody cases. The reason trust litigation can be such an uncomfortable case to take on, especially without an attorney, is the fact that it most commonly involves a breach of trust amongst members of a family following the death of a loved one.
California has 58 counties in the whole state, and each county has different judges. However, we may practice law in any county in California with the assurance that the law is going to be interpreted in a similar fashion, regardless of where we are.

Wrongful Termination Could Get You $8 Million
In the case of Jeanette Ortiz, a general manager for Chipotle Mexican Grill in Fresno, her wrongful termination lawsuit awarded her nearly $8 million dollars in damages.

A common occurrence in the real estate world that enters the legal realm is nondisclosure of property defects.

Non-Compete Agreements in California Law
Non-compete agreements are almost always found to be unenforceable in California, with only a small list of very specific exceptions listed in the statute. A notable exception is that non-compete agreements are enforceable against former owners of a company who agree to such a clause with reasonable limitations in time and geographic scope.
Joint Tenancy Law in California
The vast majority of joint tenancies in California are used as a will substitute among family members, according to the California Legislature. In a joint tenancy, the surviving member among the title holders will inherit the property. An alternative method is to hold the property as tenants in common, in which case each party owns a percentage interest in the property.
California Law and Cybersquatting
Cybersquatting, sometimes referred to as domain squatting, is registering, trafficking in, or using an Internet domain name with bad faith intent to profit from the goodwill of a trademark belonging to someone else.

How Do I Get Someone Out of My Property When They Refuse To Leave?
