Our Practice Areas

If you are looking for an attorney to defend your professional license or assist you with the defense of wrongful termination, wage and hour or ADA claims, we’re ready to show you what we’ve got.

At Rheinheimer + Smigliani, APC, we are eager to put our knowledge and resources to work for you and your business. We are prepared to handle a variety of cases, including the following:

Realtor® Defense
At Rheinheimer + Smigliani, we have been representing California real estate licensees since 1992. We have represented hundreds of Realtors® in litigated and pre-litigated matters, including CalBRE accusations. Your license is your livelihood. You need the experience and judgment we bring to the table. We are approved panel counsel for several real estate E&O carriers including CAR®’s exclusive Strategic Defense Panel program.

Employment Defense
If you are an employer accused of wrongful termination, harassment/discrimination, or wage and hour violations, you can’t afford to make costly mistakes when it comes to your defense. At Rheinheimer Smigliani + Drake we have represented employers across a wide spectrum of industries, for nearly three decades. We’ll give you quick, precise and thoughtful analysis of your options and work with you to devise an intelligent defense strategy. We are qualified counsel for several EPLI and ERPL carriers.

ADA Defense
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that places of public accommodation comply with federal and state ADA laws. When businesses are not in compliance with these laws, they can be sued. Sometimes businesses are targeted unfairly for ADA claims and they don’t know how to respond. We do. We have defended these cases since the law was passed. We know the players, and we know how to protect you against future claims.

Professional Liability Defense
We have many years’ experience defending all kinds of professional licenses including escrow officers, mortgage brokers, insurance brokers, accountants, property inspectors and design professionals.If your professional license is at stake, you need zealous defense. We are approved counsel for many E&O carriers writing business in the state of California.

Directors and Officers Liability Defense
If you have been named in a lawsuit or threatened with litigation because of alleged wrongdoing in connection with your capacity as a corporate officer or director, we can help. Your D&O policy may provide you with defense and/or indemnity coverage in a wide variety of circumstances. Let us help you evaluate your position and protect your company.

We don’t do everything, but what we do, we do really, really well. For more information about our practice areas or to request a consultation, contact us today at 619.503.1437.
