Joe Socher helps solo practitioners and small firms like yours by taking on the burden of opposing (or bringing) motions for summary judgment, other major motions and appeals and allow you to focus on running your practice.

After graduating from UCLA Law School, I worked in civil litigation for more than 10 years and have established a reputation for producing successful and persuasive legal briefing at both the trial court and appellate levels.

In 2016, I started my own practice focusing on appellate and employment law, as well as offering support to other attorneys in preparing major motions and appellate briefing.

Some of my appellate victories include the following published cases:

Sandell v. Taylor-Listug (2010) 188 Cal. App. 4th 297 -Obtained reversal of summary judgment in age/disability discrimination case; identified by employment lawyers as one of the most important employment law cases in 2010.

Baker v. Mulholland Security & Patrol, Inc. (2012) 204 Cal. App. 4th 776 - Obtained reversal of expert fee award; established precedent that prevailing defendants in FEHA cases must prove a case frivolous before recovering expert fees.
