Michelle Roberts Gonzales seeks efficient and effective outcomes for her clients, whether they need employment advice, litigation, or an internal investigation. She sweats the details to ensure efficient outcomes that protect and advance her clients' overall goals.

She has done significant work on wage-and-hour class actions and high-stakes individual employment lawsuits. She also has worked on numerous internal investigations, helping clients understand and navigate difficult whistleblower issues.

But her real strength may be her ability to get up-to-speed and to understand strategic issues quickly – skills partially attributable to her prior jobs.

Michelle is a former clerk to the Honorable Dale S. Fischer, U.S. District Judge in the Central District of California. Before law school, she spent more than a decade as a reporter and editor for a prominent news organization, covering national stories in multiple cities across the United States.
