Oscar E. Rivas, Esq., Partner
Oscar earned his J.D. in 2000 from UCLA School of Law after receiving his undergraduate degree in Business Administration for the University of California Riverside. While at UCLA School of Law, Oscar was an associate editor of the Chicano/Latino Law Review and participated in Moot Court.
Oscar joined the firm after four years of litigating on behalf of public entities. He enjoys the practice of employment law because it offers the opportunity to litigate as well as assist clients in reducing the risk of lawsuits. Because employers face tremendous risks due to the relative ease with which lawsuits can be filed when compared to the costs of defense, employers should implement policies and procedures to manage such risks and prevent lawsuits, or be prepared if sued. In this respect, Oscar enjoys advising and training employers and their employees in areas of greatest exposure. Oscar, who is fluent in Spanish, regularly conducts training and investigations in Spanish as well as handles litigation cases where the majority of witnesses are Spanish speaking.
