Cathryn G. Fund is an attorney and partner at JML Law, located in Woodland Hills, California. She divides her practice between employment law matters, personal injury and wrongful death litigation. Practicing law in the state for nearly a decade, she appears before the U.S. Supreme Court and the United States District Courts for the Central, Eastern and Northern Districts of California.

Sometimes, employees are unaware of the employment laws that exist to protect them at the state and federal levels, and their employers may take advantage of this lack of knowledge. In Ms. Fund’s employment law practice, she works to defend the rights of current and former employees in court and ensure that their rights are upheld. Many of the cases she has successfully handled involve violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act.

An empathetic and compassionate attorney, Ms. Fund’s personal injury law practice encompasses the representation of people who have suffered catastrophic harm due to the negligence of other persons or entities in motor vehicle crashes and other incidents. She understands that a catastrophic injury can have a significant and lasting impact on an individual's life, and she works diligently to provide comprehensive support to her clients throughout all stages of the case, including communication with insurance companies, investigation and the filing of documents.

Raised in upstate New York, Ms. Fund pursued her undergraduate education at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in sociology in 2006. She subsequently went on to attend New England Law | Boston, and while she was there, she received the New England School of Law Service Award and the CALI Excellence for the Future Award before being awarded her Juris Doctor in 2013.
