Rebecca S. King is an associate attorney with labor and employment law firm Fisher Phillips in Irvine, Calif. She focuses on practical solutions with an eye on cost effective resolution of employment-related issues, and she counsels and defends clients in all areas of labor and employment law to help businesses try to prevent or resolve potential issues before they result in litigation.
Ms. King has successfully extracted clients from lawsuits early, saving significant costs, by negotiating dismissals with prejudice in exchange for costs waiver and winning demurrers without leave to amend. She also advises clients on hiring, firing, disciplinary matters and compliance with labor law. Ms. King has significant experience with wage and hour class and PAGA lawsuits as well as single-plaintiff litigation, and she resolves matters at all stages from pre-claim negotiations through successfully obtaining a defense verdict at trial.
Ms. King received her J.D., Order of the Coif, from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles in 2015 and her B.A., magna cum laude, from Biola University in 2004. Prior to obtaining her J.D., she represented juvenile clients in juvenile delinquency court as a certified law student. She competed in mock trial competitions as a member of the Byrne Trial Advocacy program and was awarded the ABOTA graduate award for excellence in the preparation and trial practice of the law, and she serves as a guest judge for the Loyola Law School Byrne Trial Advocacy team.
Between college and law school she worked for the Financial Planning Association in Denver during which she managed multiple employees, so she understands first-hand challenges that managers face.
