Practice Areas

Employment Law

Andy Wolfe has been practicing employment law for more than 40 years. He represents both employers and employees and has been designated a “Northern California Super Lawyer.”

The two main areas of his employment law practice are counseling and litigation. Andy provides his clients with advice concerning the beginning of employment relationships, the end of employment relationships, and everything in between. His courtroom experience includes being lead counsel at 13 employment law trials and being counsel of record in 16 precedent-setting employment law cases that resulted in published decisions. His experience in high-visibility litigation includes the Boston School desegregation case, the case against CIA expose author Philip Agee, and the case brought by Brian Willson, the anti-war protestor who was run over by a government weapons train and lost both of his legs.

The vast majority of employment law disputes are not resolved by judges or juries, but by negotiations between the employer and employee.   For this reason, negotiation skills are critically important to achieving a successful outcome in the employment arena. Andy is a former student of three nationally famous negotiators (Roger Fisher, the author of Getting To Yes, Herb Cohen, and Marc Victor) and has been negotiating employment cases for more than 40 years.

Andy is a member of the Employment Law Section of the State Bar of California. He is also a member, and former Chair, of the Employment Law Section of the Marin County Bar Association.

He is a Harvard Law School graduate and a magna cum laude graduate of Yale University.
