Riverside County Lawyers

Experienced – and Driven

It's the rare law firm that can make this claim: more than 50 years of successful service for a loyal, diverse clientele. But that's what we've done, at Davis & Wojcik, A Professional Law Corporation. And our commitment to creating solutions for families and businesses, in Riverside County and surrounding areas, is stronger than ever. If you need a Temecula employment lawyer or representation in a business, criminal, or estate planning matter, we are here to assist you.

Employment Law

Davis & Wojcik has emerged as one of the premier employment law firms in Southern California with experienced lawyers who represent both sides of employment disputes. Davis & Wojcik has set itself apart from other firms by providing clients with a straightforward and honest approach to employment litigation.

The employer/employee relationship is complex and governed by thousands of laws and government regulations. As a result, California employers and employees encounter serious legal obstacles on a daily basis. Employers and employees alike must often deal with claims of racial discrimination, sexual harassment, failure to accommodate the disabled, wage-hour and overtime issues, and any other element that could contribute to a hostile work environment.

Whether you are an employer or employee, Davis & Wojcik can provide advice, training or litigation representation on a variety of issues including:

  • Discrimination
  • Retaliation
  • Wrongful Termination
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Hostile Work Environment
  • Unpaid Wages
  • Missed Meal and Rest Period Violations
  • Health and Safety Violations (Cal-OSHA)
  • Employment Contracts
  • Maternity Leave and FMLA Rights

Were you discriminated against — in hiring, promotions or by wrongful termination — because of your race, religion, gender, sexual preference, national origin, pregnancy or disability? Are you accused of denying Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) time away to an expectant mother or father who works for you? Have you been targeted for retaliation after reporting an unethical or illegal act committed at your workplace? Is your employment contract, severance clause or noncompete clause being breached?

Whether you are an employee seeking damages for mistreatment suffered on the job, or an employer defending yourself against complaints of workplace rights violations, you can rely on an experienced employment attorney in the Temecula area to help.

The first important decision of any business owner is determining how the entity is going to operate. Our team can explain the advantages and disadvantages of operating as a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, or limited liability company (LLC). After that, things get even more complex. Our attorneys are committed to helping businesses culminate growth opportunities by provide legal services, including:

  • Prepare and review business agreements, contracts, and leases
  • Reduce liability through legally compliant policies and procedures

Criminal Defense

If you have been arrested for theft, domestic violence, sex crime, weapons violation, drug offense, DUI or a white-collar financial crime, you can trust our law firm's more than 50 years of experienced advocacy to give credibility to your side of the story.

After retaining Davis & Wojcik, an experienced Temecula or Hemet criminal attorney will take charge of your case and defend your interests during every phase of the judicial system. We carefully inspect every aspect of your arrest and bring a thoroughly prepared case to negotiations with prosecutors. At trial, we work hard to impress judges and juries with presentations that eloquently state your goals.

With offices located in Hemet and Temecula, we are able to readily defend your interests in courthouses located in Murrieta, Banning, Riverside and Indio. We also have experience defending criminal cases in juvenile and veteran’s court.

Criminal DUI Defense

If you are seeking aggressive defense representation after a DUI arrest — for an administrative hearing, DMV appeal or trial — you have come to the right place.

At Davis & Wojcik,our skillful DUI defense and criminal defense attorneys protect your rights at every stage of the legal process. We work hard to preserve your driving privileges when law enforcement oversteps its bounds with dubious arrest procedures, strenuous field sobriety tests and often faulty breath testing equipment that distorts your blood alcohol content.

DUI stops are frequently the result of erratic driving being mistaken for drunk driving. Any combination of bad weather, substandard roads, engine malfunctions and pre-existing medical conditions could be the reason you were pulled over for suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Our lawyers carefully examine every detail of your case and confront prosecutors with the facts, to increase the chances of your charges being reduced or dismissed outright.

We recognize how precious your California driver's license is to you, in today's highly mobile society. And we realize how high the stakes are, given the punishments that could be in store, upon conviction. If we can spare you the jail time, heavy fines and license revocation that accompany some DUI charges, especially for repeat offenders, we will.

Estate Planning and Probate

Estate planning isn't just for retirees. Individuals, business owners, young couples with small children could all benefit from personalized estate planning. When it comes to providing for your loved ones' future financial security, nothing beats preparation — the kind you'll find in any solid, customized estate plan.

At Davis & Wojcik,our experienced estate planning lawyers can tailor estate planning for you that addresses your California family's specific needs. We listen carefully as you describe your objectives, and document those goals in just the right combination of will, trust, power of attorney, advance health care directive, guardianship and/or conservatorship that gives your survivors peace of mind.

In addition to distributing assets and property according to your exact wishes, these strategies serve another constructive purpose — sparing your relatives the cost, stress and inconvenience of complex probate proceedings that can divide families, rather than unite them, during a difficult time.

As your lawyers, our assistance doesn't stop with formulation and refreshes of an estate plan. We also excel at administration of estates, working closely with executors, trustees and beneficiaries alike, to arrive at outcomes that are amenable to all. If a will contest arises around allegations of incompetency, undue influence or mysterious last-minute changes to a will, we aggressively protect our clients' rights, in courts of law if necessary.

General Litigation

You can expect assertive advocacy, detailed investigation and convincing presentations in the courtroom when a heated dispute arises.

  • Real estate litigation
  • Business litigation

Business Litigation

Operating a business in California is a complex venture. That is why, at Davis & Wojcik, our goal is to help businesses succeed in a highly-regulated and litigious state. Our team of business litigation attorneys provide qualified legal representation in all aspects of business.

In addition to defending standard employment disputes, our business litigation lawyers handle more complex aspects of the employer/employee relationship including violations of noncompete, nondisclosure, severance and nondisparagement agreements. As employment lawyers who have assisted Temecula employees with suing businesses, we have gained many insights about the plaintiff’s position that we can bring to your defense. We also handle corporate governance litigation between partners and shareholders, usually involving a breach of fiduciary duty.

Oftentimes, disputes arise between competing businesses or even vendors. Our business litigation lawyers can also assist in claims arising from breach of contract, fraud, misrepresentation, unfair business practices and trade secret claims.

Unfortunately, crises do arise, routinely and spontaneously: situations that can only be addressed by experienced attorneys who excel at safeguarding health care provider rights.

My husband and I hired DWD to do our Last Will and Testament. We went in not knowing what to expect or how to distribute our estate upon our passing. Each of our questions were answered quickly and to our satisfaction. Things we thought were complicated were worked-out very simply because of their vast experience and knowledge. I highly recommend DWD for Wills, Trusts, etc. Donna

During an employment dispute, I sought help from an Attorney. Choosing a strong, local firm was important to me.
