JOHNSON SCHACHTER & LEWIS, a P.L.C., is a respected Sacramento law firm with an uncommon depth of talent. We provide a broad range of legal services to national, regional, and local clients throughout California.
Founded in 1981, we are among only a handful of Sacramento firms to be selected for listing in the Civil Trial Practice section of Martindale-Hubbell's prestigious Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers and have been given the highest rating (a.v.) in that publication's confidential survey of the other lawyers in the community. Attorneys in our firm have received national recognition for their legal work, lecture in continuing education programs for other lawyers, and have authored articles in national and statewide publications.
We offer a broad spectrum of expertise, specializing in employment and discrimination law, the representation of public entities, professional errors and omissions claims, tort and accident litigation, insurance coverage and bad faith disputes, business litigation, and media law. We advise employers on personnel issues, investigate discrimination and harassment complaints, and have a mediation practice. We act as outside general counsel for many of our business and public entity clients.
We represent insurance carriers, self-insureds, retailers, large and small businesses, professionals (including accountants, lawyers, and insurance brokers), public entities (including cities, counties, and school and college districts), landlords and property managers, and newspapers and broadcasters. Several of our clients have asked us to monitor the performance and cost of other counsel in addition to handling claims.
Our attorneys have decades of experience. We routinely handle very complex litigation involving significant exposure, at the same time providing cost-effective service in cases where the dollar amount at issue is relatively small.
We are committed to our community. Our attorneys have served Sacramento as public officials, community leaders, and civic volunteers.
We have successfully litigated many cases and have negotiated favorable settlements in others. We respect our clients' experience and ability to participate in the litigation process. We work with our clients to identify the best approach in every case.
