At Mesirow & Fink, Steven Fink and his partner combine more than 70 years of legal experience in California. With our reputation for successful outcomes and zealous advocacy, we are confident that we can provide you with the employment law representation you need and deserve. Mr. Fink is assisted with employment law matters by attorney Charles Mesirow and our knowledgeable, well-trained staff.
Steven Fink has been selected nine times as one of the top employment lawyers in the Silicon Valley by San Jose Magazine. He leads our team in protecting employees' civil rights in the workplace and fighting against discrimination, wrongful termination and labor law violations. We offer a traditional approach to legal services by providing personalized, attentive services in every employment law matter.
The legal barriers which any employee faces are daunting, if not downright scary. "Most of the time I feel like David, battling Goliath", adds Mr. Fink. The employer is usually represented by large, talented, well equipped and highly paid lawyers. Overcoming those odds is no small task, but it is the stuff on which he thrives, and--sometimes to the dismay of his family and friends--enjoys.
Examples of Cases:
- Employment Law
- Civil Rights in both state and federal courts
- Labor Code violations
- Business and Civil Litigation
- Sexual harassment
- Wrongful termination claims
Mr. Fink also represents employers.
Though he began his career practicing Entertainment Law in Los Angeles, Mr. Fink and his wife traded the glamour of Hollywood for the San Jose area' s charms. That early exposure to big city, high-pressure civil cases has served him well, particularly when dealing with the complex issues involved in contemporary employment cases.
Mr. Fink is a partner in Mesirow & Fink, a small but energetic and creative law firm founded in 1976. Mr. Fink is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley's Boalt Hall, and he has six times been selected by San Jose Magazine as one of the top lawyers in Employment Law. His longtime partner, Charles M. Mesirow, a board Certified Criminal Law Specialist, has served as a member of the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office and the chairman of the Criminal Law Section of the State Bar of California.
"The best way that I can put it is that when faced with an Employment Law problem, pretend that you are dealing with an illness. The bad news is that you have an illness. The good news is that with the help of a good lawyer, and the legal tools available to him or her, those problems are often treatable, if not curable."
