September 11, 2023 - San Diego, California. Garcia Hong Law obtained a confidential settlement for its clients in a matter involving issues related to a lawyer's departure from a law firm. Garcia Hong Law has counseled lawyers who are preparing to leave a law firm and represented departing lawyers who face litigation from their prior law firms.

There are ethical requirements when a lawyer leaves a law firm – both for the lawyer and the firm. The primary focus must be the client’s best interests, including keeping them informed and not prejudiced by their lawyer and law firm’s conduct.  

Associate attorney Coleman Alguire and Principal Valerie Garcia Hong assisted their clients through the litigation, including defeating a motion for summary adjudication brought by the law firm challenging the lawyer's employment status.
