About the Law Office of Paul K. Joseph

Our Mission

A Firm Committed to Stopping Corporate Abuse

The Law Office of Paul K. Joseph specializes in enforcing and vindicating the rights of vulnerable individuals, consumers, and employees that have been victimized by large corporations. Big businesses command the status quo when dealing with individual employees and consumers. This often results in businesses exploiting this position of power in illegal ways. Although individuals may feel like they have no recourse when victimized by big businesses, we pride ourselves in restoring the balance of power and holding large corporations accountable through class actions.

Class action lawsuits are among the most effective tools consumers and employees have for protecting their legal rights because they enable individuals who have had their legal rights violated by an unlawful corporate practice to join together and fight as one. As one former United States Supreme Court Justice stated, “the class action is one of the few legal remedies the small claimant has against those who command the status quo.” Class actions level the playing field between individuals and corporations and allow individuals not only to obtain compensation but to end unlawful business practices.

If you or someone you know has been injured or lost money due to an abusive corporate practice involving consumer products or an employment dispute, we can provide a free evaluation of your claim and explain your legal options with no obligation. We accept cases on a contingent fee basis, which means you pay nothing unless there is a recovery in your favor.

Result Focused Client Service

Our office is committed to providing unwavering service to our clients and securing the best possible result in each case. This commitment is reflected in our practice specialization. By focusing our practice specifically on consumer and employee rights we are able to provide the exceptional advocacy necessary to help our clients succeed.

Our Consumer Protection Specialty

Our consumer protection practice handles claims involving unfair, fraudulent, and unlawful business practices that target consumers, including:

  • false advertising;
  • breach of warranty;
  • defective, adulterated, or misbranded products;
  • bait and switch tactics; and
  • automated telephone solicitations.

We strive not only to obtain a financial remedy for all those who were harmed but also to permanently stop the abusive corporate practice through a court ordered injunction. Learn more about our consumer protection practice.

Our Employment Law Specialty

Our labor and employment practice focuses on wage-and-hour claims in which employers illegally deny their employees the full compensation to which they are entitled to by law. Wage-and-hour violations take a variety of forms, including:

  • failing to pay all hours worked;
  • failing to pay minimum wage or overtime;
  • misclassifying a worker as an “exempt” employee or independent contractor;
  • requiring employees to pay for work-related expenses; and
  • illegal compensation schemes for “commissioned” and “tipped” employees.

We understand that your job is your livelihood. Therefore, we take the time to fully explain your legal rights and options, including the legal protections that are in place to prevent retaliation against employees filing such grievances. This allows you to make the best decision for yourself. Learn more about our employment law practice.

Our Commitment to the Community

Our commitment to serving our clients and those in need, is underscored by our service within the San Diego community. Our founder, Mr. Joseph, dedicates hundreds of hours each year to volunteering to help homeless and foster youth with local charitable organizations.

We firmly believe that the well-being of our community depends on the willingness of its members to help and serve others. Our commitment to investing in our community is both a personal and a professional responsibility that we live every day.
