Custis Law, P.C.
Custis Law P.C. is a Los Angeles-based employment law firm that represents employees and job applicants who need help protecting their legal rights.
With over 20 years of high-level experience, attorney Keith Custis is a passionate and aggressive advocate for employees who have been mistreated by their employers.
As an employee in California, understanding your legal rights can be a challenge. If you don’t know your rights, protecting them can be next to impossible. When you consider that employers often prioritize their bottom lines over treating their employees with the respect they deserve, it is not hard to see why many employees simply give up when they experience discriminatory or other unfair treatment on the job.
At Custis Law, P.C., our Los Angeles employment attorney turns the tables in our clients’ favor. With over two decades of legal experience, founding employment law attorney Keith Custis has extensive knowledge of the state and federal laws that protect employees in California. He puts his advocacy skills to work for employees in negotiations, administrative proceedings, and in court. When you come to us, we don’t expect you to know your rights, and we don’t expect you to know what you want out of your legal representation. If you believe you may have been wronged—or if you aren’t sure and would like to find out—we encourage you to contact us for a free consultation.
