Altshuler Berzon LLP
is a San Francisco law firm dedicated to providing the highest quality representation in the service of economic justice and the public interest. Our attorneys represent clients including labor unions, workers, consumers, environmental groups, other public interest organizations, and public entities. We specialize in labor and employment, constitutional, environmental, civil rights, class action, campaign and election, and impact litigation, at both the trial and appellate levels. We represent clients before state and federal courts, administrative agencies, and arbitrators. We also provide advice and counseling, legislative drafting, representation in collective bargaining and negotiation, and other forms of legal assistance.
Altshuler Berzon LLP has earned a nationwide reputation for litigation excellence. Our lawyers have been awarded “California Lawyer Attorney of the Year” recognition for cases involving employee rights, voting rights, consumer rights, disability rights, criminal appeals, and false claims litigation. And our attorneys are routinely recognized for their expertise and success in many areas of law by publications including “Best Lawyers in America.” Clients and other lawyers turn to us to handle litigation involving important issues of first impression, particularly cases raising important constitutional and public policy issues.
Our office is located just off Union Square in downtown San Francisco, at the same 177 Post Street location where we began our law practice in 1978. Our firm was founded by two former legal services attorneys, Fred Altshuler and Stephen Berzon, and by Marsha Berzon, then an associate general counsel at the AFL-CIO, who was subsequently appointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
