Valdez Todd & Doyle LLP is a Bay Area boutique law firm offering exceptional employment litigation and counseling services. Founded by three former big firm attorneys, Valdez Todd & Doyle provides sophisticated counsel from experienced attorneys committed to delivering prompt personal service at competitive rates.

Our attorneys have varied and substantial experience litigating a broad array of employment cases, including claims for job discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, disability accommodation, wage and hour, family and medical leave, trade secrets, and breach of employment contracts. The firm has successfully defended both public
and private companies and obtained favorable results for clients in various forums, including civil litigation, arbitration, and before administrative agencies. The firm also
has assisted clients in negotiating favorable settlements in complex and difficult cases through the use of alternative dispute resolution procedures such as mediation
and arbitration.

We also help companies minimize the risk of costly litigation by providing practical advice on the implementation and enforcement of personnel policies and procedures. The attorneys at Valdez Todd & Doyle regularly counsel clients on a wide range of employment law matters, including employee handbooks and policies, employment contracts, protection of trade secrets, wage and hour compliance, leaves of absence, performance management, alleged discrimination and harassment, workplace investigations, privacy rights, background checks, layoffs, and terminations. In addition, we design and conduct trainings for managers, supervisors, and other personnel on workplace policies and practices, including anti-discrimination and anti-harassment trainings.

Our goal is to provide our clients with excellent, cost-effective legal service through zealous and results-oriented representation, personal attention, and professional diligence. We work closely with clients to understand their business goals and develop the most appropriate and effective solutions to employment issues of all kinds. With such expertise and personal service available at cost-effective rates, Valdez Todd & Doyle is the ideal choice for meeting any company’s or individual’s employment law needs.

Valdez Todd & Doyle LLP is proud to announce that Erin M. Doyle was selected to receive the 2014 Rising Stars distinction which recognizes the top up-and-coming attorneys in the Northern California area. Erin also received the Rising Stars distinction in 2012 and 2013. The selection of "Rising Stars" is made by Law & Politics, the publisher of Super Lawyers and Rising Stars magazines throughout the U.S. The publication's attorney-led research team independently reviews the credentials of potential candidates and assigns points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria. Practicing lawyers are asked to nominate "the best attorneys who are 40 or under, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less." No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in a state are named to the Rising Stars list. Troy A. Valdez received the Northern California Rising Stars distinction in 2010, and Sheila Khan-Variba received the Southern California Rising Stars distinction in 2009, 2010, and 2011.
