Partners Matthew McNicholas and Patrick McNicholas were recognized in Lawdragon’s 500 Leading Civil Rights & Plaintiff Employment Lawyers 2023 Guide for their work standing up for individuals who are denied equal treatment, fired, harassed or sexually abused by those in positions of responsibility.
Matthew has held dozens of California police and fire departments accountable for misconduct, harassment and discrimination, empowering employees to come forward to make their departments better places to work—and therefore making the public safer. His cases don’t simply result in significant verdicts and settlements, they are catalysts for institutional change.
Patrick has taken on some of California’s largest retailers, car manufacturers, resorts, casinos, utility companies and municipalities, and achieved more than $1 billion in resolutions for his clients. His work has held behemoth companies accountable and forced them to make changes that have improved the lives of thousands of people and reduced the risk of deadly accidents.
The Lawdragon guide is compiled through independent journalistic research, vetting of peers and adversaries, and robust submissions.
