Marjorie A. Wallace practices employment law throughout the state of California. She is a longtime Bay Area resident with an office in Contra Costa County. Her strong beliefs about contributing to workplace fairness and maintaining the backbone of our democracy–the Great American Middle Class, guide her law practice every day. She helps mostly middle class employees who want damages or changes in their workplace where they have endured discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, wage theft or retaliation when they spoke up against or reported workplace wrongs.
While many employee-side attorneys shy away from representing public employees, a significant number of Marjorie’s clients are public employees with discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, wage and hour and retaliation claims.
She prides herself on being an active listener who provides excellent and practical service at an affordable price. You can ask her about working with you on a limited scope basis where you do some of the groundwork to keep down your legal fees.
Ms. Wallace’s significant litigation experience in state and federal courts, makes her keenly aware that the current COVID-19 court closures and court funding budget cuts give new meaning to the word “delay”, since “justice delayed is justice denied”. She will not hesitate to try a case, but will also go all out to try to resolve your legal dispute as cost efficiently as possible, without resort to costly litigation.
Despite the COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders, Marjorie thinks it important to still (virtually) volunteer in the community, take long walks in the beautiful Contra Costa hills near her house or stream virtual aerobics and keep her negotiating skills strong by interacting with her homebound 21 year old virtual college student.
She attended Yale Law School and UC Hastings College of the Law where she earned two law degrees: an LL.M. from Yale and a J.D. from UC Hastings.
Her B.A. in Psychology is from UCLA.
She also has an M.S.I.S. in Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh.
You can probably tell she understands firsthand the joys of student loan debt.
