Attorney Profile

As an employment attorney at The Kaufman Law Firm, Matthew Kaufman represents clients in Los Angeles and Westlake Village. For over two decades, he has protected the rights of the worker in matters of labor and employment, elder abuse, discrimination, employment class actions, wage and hour violations, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, whistleblower and unpaid commissions. With extensive experience litigating in the courtroom, he has handled claims, appeals and trials along with class action lawsuits in the employment arena.

Mr. Kaufman’s focus area and passion lie in representing employees with complaints about their employers. These are often gender, race and disability discrimination. As an advocate for workers when it comes to unpaid wage and unpaid commission issues, he is extremely familiar with the California Family Rights Act, the Family Medical Leave Act and the Pregnancy Disability Leave law.

Admitted to practice in California, Mr. Kaufman earned a Juris Doctor in 1993 from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. In both federal and state court, he has appeared before the Labor Commissioner, and his clients range from minimum wage employees to high paid sales executives.

Every situation is unique and requires a different strategy, and with two decades of experience, he has the problem-solving ability to determine the best course of action. After a detailed discussion with his clients about their final goals, he is prepared to take the case as far as necessary to get the protection every worker deserves.
