About Haeggquist & Eck, LLP

San Diego and Orange County Attorneys

We are Southern California’s employee and consumer rights advocates: committed to our clients, our community, and social justice.

Our founding partners were trained at the largest plaintiff’s consumer and securities class action firm in the United States before founding our firm in 2008. Since then, we’ve built our reputation in employment, consumer protection, and securities fraud class action cases, and are known nationwide for our fearlessness: no defendant is too large or powerful for us to tackle.

We proudly represent employees in a broad range of cases against their employers and litigate claims relating to harassment, discrimination, retaliation, equal pay, and wage theft.  We have also successfully pursued class actions against corporations for securities fraud and a wide range of unlawful practices, including deceptive advertising, product defect, senior annuities fraud, and race discrimination in insurance underwriting.

Our mission is simple and straightforward:  to obtain life-changing results and closure for our clients through compassionate representation of the highest caliber.  We strive to achieve that mission through our commitment to the following values:

  • Approaching each case energetically, passionately, and relentlessly;
  • Promoting equality, honoring diversity, and holding corporations and employers accountable; and
  • Cultivating a welcoming, supportive, and positive work environment with a fun, flexible, and family-focused atmosphere.

Whether we are vindicating the rights of defrauded consumers and shareholders, representing employees who were wrongfully terminated, or advocating on behalf of victims of human rights violations and human trafficking, we are thorough, meticulous, and above all passionate about our work.   We invite you to learn more about what sets us apart.

COMMITTED TO OUR CLIENTS 

Pursuing justice on behalf of our clients is our top priority — whether it’s fighting for unpaid overtime and fair pay, against discrimination and harassment, or battling defective products and services.  Helping our clients move forward inspires everything we do — and sets us apart from our competitors.

STEEPED IN OUR COMMUNITY 

Our teams put the same passion we have in the courtroom to work in our community.  Our lawyers have founded nonprofits, built orphanages, volunteered with human trafficking organizations, and worked with underprivileged youth.  We proudly mentor aspiring lawyers through partnerships with San Diego’s three local law schools, and we enjoy a sterling reputation for fairness and excellence among both plaintiff’s and defense lawyers across the country.

DEDICATED TO SOCIAL JUSTICE 

Each member of our team is strongly committed to advancing social justice throughout our local community and the nation.  It’s a lofty goal, and we’re up to the challenge: we view our work on behalf of employees and consumers as paramount to making our community a better place to live, work, and play.

Results were highly dependent on the facts and circumstances of the particular matters. The facts and circumstances of these matters are likely different than those in your matter, and results will differ greatly if based on different facts. This in no way constitutes a guarantee, warranty, or prediction regarding the outcome of your legal matter.

Paying It Forward

At Haeggquist & Eck, we believe in paying things forward.  We prove that commitment by our actions: through individual volunteer work, through firm-wide philanthropic initiatives, and through partnerships with and support of organizations that are making a real difference in advancing justice, fairness, and equality in California and beyond.

Caring For Our Planet

Our commitment to giving back extends to caring for our planet: you won’t find anything disposable in our office, and all paper and stationery we use is made with 100% post-consumer content, so no new trees are used.  We use real plates and cups, have a scanner instead of a copier, and are conscientious of our firm’s impact on the earth.  We also proudly support local farmers and purveyors and only buy locally grown, organic fruits for our employees and staff to enjoy at work.

To help offset our carbon footprint, we are also proud participants of the Nature Conservancy’s “Plant a Billion” campaign, where we plant trees in an endangered South American rainforest.
