Attorney Profile

As head of the Employment Law Department at Brock & Gonzales, LLP, Christopher P. Brandes represents the people of Los Angeles and Sacramento in a variety of employment law matters. These may include wrongful termination, whistleblower retaliation, wage and hour violations, sexual orientation discrimination, sexual harassment, severance agreements, retaliation, religious discrimination, race discrimination, pregnancy rights violations, gender discrimination, disability discrimination, defamation and age discrimination.

Mr. Brandes is fluent in Spanish and grew up in a Peruvian working-class family, and he is intimately acquainted with how the rights of workers in California are often violated. A member of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles and the California Employment Lawyers Association, he has helped recover millions for his clients through settlement or trial in just a few short years of practice.

At Loyola Marymount University, Mr. Brandes earned a Bachelor of Arts with a major in history in 2008. He then attended Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, where he attended on a Wildman/Schumacher Scholarship and earned his Juris Doctor in 2011. In law school, he also helped other students pass the bar exam as the BARBRI Bar Review’s head student representative.

Focused on building strong relationships within the Latin-American community and throughout Sacramento and Los Angeles, Mr. Brandes walks clients through the entire legal process when they feel their rights have been violated by an employer. With any type of labor dispute, he stays with his clients from the initial paperwork to the final settlement or verdict, with their best interests in mind and an intense desire to protect their rights.
