Partner Mira Hashmall has been recognized by the Los Angeles Business Journal on its list of the 2023 Leaders of Influence: Labor and Employment Attorneys.
Mira is an accomplished trial lawyer and a certified appellate expert. She is skilled in crafting a case strategy to serve the client’s unique interests and objectives in a comprehensive way. She handles complex employment litigation, from prelitigation negotiations to trial and appellate proceedings. Mira has extensive experience defending employers in matters involving claims of harassment, discrimination, retaliation, wage and hour, wrongful termination, disability discrimination and accommodation, and family and medical leave rights.
Mira recently won a victory in the California Court of Appeal, holding that an elected public official in the City of Inglewood could not state a claim under Labor Code Section 1102.5 for retaliation based on whistleblowing because elected officials are not “employees” under the Labor Code. The Court of Appeal held the anti-SLAPP motion filed by City Councilmembers seeking to strike the official’s claims should have been granted in its entirety.
