Record Breaking Jury Verdict For The Largest Race Discrimination Case in US History ($137,000,000)
Owen Diaz brought a race harassment case against Tesla, Inc. under the Civil Rights Act of 1866 because he was forced to endure widespread use of the N-word and other racist conduct. A Jury has found that from 2015 to 2016, Mr. Diaz was subjected to severe and pervasive racial harassment. He was called the N-word over sixty times by supervisors and he was told to "go back to Africa."
One supervisor left a picaninny drawing on some recycled cardboard near the elevators where Mr. Diaz would find it. Mr. Diaz saw racist graffiti in multiple bathrooms throughout Tesla’s Fremont, CA factory.

"I would highly recommend Navruz Avloni for her legal services as an employment law attorney. She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced and really goes above and beyond for her clients. Any time I have an empl...oyment law question, she is the first person I call and always is able to meet my needs. I never hesitate to refer her new clients. When my fiancee, family, or friends need employment advice, she is the first person I send them to."

"The head/founding attorney of the law group is Lawrence A. Organ and I can't say enough good about him. I wish I could give the law group 10 Stars! My son needed a civil rights attorney so I did a google search and... after watching Lawrence’s video, we were so impressed, my son sent an email describing the events that led to his termination, and received a fast reply from Cory, asking my son to make an appointment to come in, which he did. My son met with 2 attorneys, they went over everything, asked many questions, they didn’t rush us and spent over an hour with us. They discussed my son’s employment problems and took on his case. One day I was talking to my friend who is a judge in civil court, when I mentioned Lawrence, she told me that Lawrence was in her court and how impressed she was with how hard he fought for his client. If you have gotten this far on my review, I suggest you go into their website and watch the videos where Lawrence talks about why he became a civil rights attorney. Navruz was our attorney, she was great! Her communication skills were over the top…She emailed with questions and gave updates. She was compassionate and caring yet very professional. She was usually available to speak over the phone, she was prompt in returning calls. For the most part everything was handled through emails, perfect for us because nothing was lost in translation. We loved emails, not necessary to tie up time on the phone, or traveling into the office. On the day we went to mediation Navruz showed up with Lawrence whom we never met, he knew all about my son’s case, not just one attorney handles a case, they all sit at the table and discuss each case. Navruz and Lawrence fought hard, it was actually fun watching them make points and arguments. My son WON! He was very pleased with his settlement and without going to court. We would recommend Navruz and Lawrence to anyone in need of representation. Thank you Lawrence and Navruz, we applaud you for a job well done!"

"We are very grateful for the exceptional service provided to us by Lawrence and Nav. Our interactions with them were not only professional but more importantly their analysis and summary of my wife's situation and... the establishment of a concrete plan of action showed their caring, compassion, expertise and competence. My wife's situation was extremely stressful and the thought of meeting with lawyers added to the anxiety. Lawrence and Nav were not only understanding but uniquely helped us move forward without any form of pressure. Nav's follow up has been outstanding. Both my wife and I were empowered by the action plan and have absolutely no hesitancy in recommending Lawrence, Nav and the entire team at California Civil Rights Law Group."

"It was not an easy decision to make, to fight back against institutionalized sexism. It seemed easier to move on with my life. But I called Lawrence's office to explore my situation, and it was one of the most empowe...ring decisions I have ever made. Every single person I interacted with on Lawrence's team was compassionate and caring, and efficient and professional. They are a unique set of exceptionally competent humanitarians. Lawrence and team helped me fight for my dignity. And they made it easy for me to do so. I am truly grateful to them, and really glad I made that call."
