Job Justice | California Employee Rights

Nicole NguyenFounder & Principal Attorney

Nicole Nguyen is an accomplished litigator and trial lawyer. She has practiced in diverse specialties, representing individuals, companies, and government entities. Her broad experience gives her a uniquely insightful perspective. She now devotes her practice exclusively to employees whose rights have been violated. She is an especially passionate advocate for sexual harassment victims.

Nicole understands that legal practice is most effective when the parties are professional, courteous, and reasonable. She has built strong relationships with attorneys on both sides of the bar. Her civility and pragmatism give her clients the best chance at a prompt, favorable settlement.

When alternative dispute resolution has not been effective, Nicole has prevailed for her clients in jury and bench trials, arbitrations, and administrative hearings. She excels at presenting a strong, simple, and emotionally resonant narrative for the decision-maker. She has obtained tens of millions in trial awards and settlements for her clients.

Nicole loves learning. She was recruited by the University of Southern California to start college at age 16, as both a Resident Honors and Thematic Option Scholar. She later graduated from Western Washington University with a B.A. in English literature and a minor in economics.

She received her J.D. from Columbia Law School, where she earned honors for her legal writing, debate skills, and commitment to public service.

Nicole has specialized in employee rights for more than a decade. She served as a partner and in-house counsel at a long-established plaintiff’s firm, where she balanced her litigation responsibilities with mentorship and attorney development. She founded Job Justice to provide an elevated level of service.

She is selective in her advocacy. She represents clients who find her through the recommendation of lawyers, judges, and community leaders. Nicole is privileged to receive frequent referrals from her past clients.

At this time, Nicole’s practice does not permit her to accommodate unscheduled meetings or inquiries from the general public.

In her free time, Nicole travels, watches movies, and collaborates with her husband on his software development work.
