About Trygstad, Schwab & Trygstad

Our law firm in Los Angeles, California, primarily serves the greater Southern California region, but we have cases up and down the West Coast. For over fifty years, our practice has focused on representing individuals involved in public or private primary/secondary schools, community colleges, and 4-year universities, from classified and certificated educators - including teachers and counselors -- and site administrators, to students (minors, college and graduate students), superintendents, head coaches, department chairs, and Board members. Some of our representative cases have been against public entities like the Los Angeles Unified School District, UCLA, UC Davis, California State University Long Beach, and Beverly Hills Unified School District, and private entities like University of Southern California, Bank of America, Live Nation and Amgen. No case is too small, no individual is less entitled to protection, and no opposition is too great to take on. While many cases are related to employment or licensing, we provide a broad array of legal advice and representation in other areas of the law as well, including real estate, personal injury, estate planning, disability benefits, unemployment insurance, business formation, trademarks and copyright. We also represent and advise many people and small businesses in other public and private sectors, including in Nevada and California.

In addition to being education lawyers, employment attorneys, criminal defense lawyers, and civil rights advocates, our attorneys are skilled in many different practice areas, so you can count on thorough and astute representation and advice regardless of your concern. Our attorneys have, collectively, represented clients in hundreds of civil and criminal trials and administrative hearings, with a winning track record that is among the best in our field.

Our attorneys come from families of educators and are passionate about preserving public education and supporting the rights of educators and students at all levels of the educational system and of other public and private sector employees. Through lobbying and litigation, our firm helped develop and shape the laws that govern education throughout California. We have represented the California Teacher Association (CTA) and United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) and their members since they were formed. In addition, we are distinguished with the top "AV" rating from Martindale-Hubbell (www.lawyers.com), the well-respected resource for finding and selecting lawyers. Our firm and individual lawyers are also top-rated on Avvo.com, Yelp.com, and Google, among other review sources.
