This website may be considered attorney advertising under some states’ laws and attorney ethics rules.  Goldstein, Borgen, Dardarian & Ho (“GBDH”) does not intend this site to serve as an advertisement or offer of availability for employment to anyone in a state where this site fails to comply with all laws and ethical rules of that state.  Visiting or reading the content on this site or sending a message to GBDH through the site or otherwise does not make you a client of GBDH, and does not obligate GBDH to represent you or to respond to your communication.

Nothing on this site is intended to provide legal advice.  Any legal decision you make should be based on the advice of a licensed attorney whom you have hired to advise you based upon your individual circumstances.  GBDH does not ensure that all material on or linked to its website is correct and up to date, or make any warranty, express or implied, that the information on this site is accurate and current.

Most legal claims are subject to time limits within which a case must be filed (statutes of limitations).  Visiting or reading the content on this site, sending GBDH a message, or leaving a voicemail for an attorney at GBDH does not obligate GBDH to do anything with respect to such deadlines.  If you have a potential legal claim, you should communicate with an attorney in person or by telephone to understand immediately any time limits that may apply to your claim.

This site discusses cases that the firm has handled in the past in order to provide information about the type of work the firm has done.  Every case is different and depends upon its unique facts and the law as it existed and was applied in that case.  Results in a prior case do not guarantee success or a similar outcome in future cases, and descriptions of cases on the site are not intended to create any expectation of results in any other case.

GBDH represents individuals in employment, civil rights, and consumer rights cases, including class actions and other collective litigations.  GBDH typically represents clients on a contingency basis, meaning that such clients do not owe attorneys’ fees to GBDH unless the case results in the recovery of money or other relief, as detailed in GBDH’s representation agreements.  However, if a case results in a judgment against a client of GBDH, the client may be ordered by the court to pay certain court costs incurred in the case.

GBDH is located at 300 Lakeside Drive, Suite 1000, Oakland, California, 94612.  Each of the firm’s lawyers is admitted to practice law in California.  One or more attorneys at the firm may be admitted to practice law in other states, as stated on their individual biography pages.  As of April 11, 2017, the only other state in which any attorney(s) at the firm is/are licensed to practice is New York.  GBDH also handles cases in other jurisdictions with the local court’s permission (pro hac vice) with the assistance of local counsel as required by such jurisdictions’ laws and ethical rules.  To the extent that any state’s ethics rules require GBDH to identify a single attorney responsible for the content on this website, GBDH identifies Linda M. Dardarian.
