Attorney Keith Custis is an employment lawyer in Los Angeles that represents employees who need help protecting their legal rights.
With over 20 years of high-level experience, attorney Keith Custis is a passionate and aggressive advocate for employees who have been mistreated by their employers.
As an employee in California, understanding your legal rights can be a challenge. If you don’t know your rights, protecting them can be next to impossible. When you consider that employers often prioritize their bottom lines over treating their employees with the respect they deserve, it is not hard to see why many employees simply give up when they experience discriminatory or other unfair treatment on the job.
At Custis Law, P.C., our attorney turns the tables in our clients’ favor. With over two decades of legal experience, founding attorney Keith Custis has extensive knowledge of the state and federal laws that protect employees in California. He puts his advocacy skills to work for employees in negotiations, administrative proceedings, and in court. When you come to us, we don’t expect you to know your rights, and we don’t expect you to know what you want out of your legal representation. If you believe you may have been wronged—or if you aren’t sure and would like to find out—we encourage you to contact us for a free consultation.

Who We Represent
At Custis Law, P.C., we represent employees throughout California at all stages of their careers and in all walks of life.
Whether you are an entry-level worker or a C-level executive or senior manager, we have the experience, knowledge, and insights needed to protect you. We understand that an employment-related dispute can have drastic implications for you and your family, and we appreciate that these disputes can be sensitive in nature. As we get to know you, we will craft a legal strategy that is custom-tailored to your unique personal and professional circumstances, and we will pursue a course of action that is designed to secure your rights as efficiently as possible.
What We Can Do for You
So, now you know why to choose us if you need help. But, how do you decide if you need help in the first place? Here is just a small sampling of what we can do for you:
1. Fight Back Against Wrongful Termination
Were you fired or forced out of your job in violation of your statutory or contractual rights? California and federal wrongful termination laws protect both at-will and contract-based employees. We can help you fight back if you were terminated on a discriminatory basis, in violation of public policy, or otherwise in violation of your legal rights.
2. Protect You Against Workplace Discrimination
State and federal laws protect employees in California from many different types of workplace discrimination. If you have been disadvantaged by an employment-related decision that was based upon your personal characteristics or membership in a protected class, we can do what is necessary to protect you.
3. Stop Workplace Harassment and Seek Legal Remedies
Sexual harassment and other forms of harassment can create untenable working conditions even for the most stalwart employees. If you have been harassed by a manager, supervisor, co-worker, or customer, or if you have been subjected to an unlawfully hostile work environment, you have legal rights that we can help you protect.
4. Protect Your Job During or After a Leave of Absence
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), and other laws entitle employees to take leave without putting their jobs at risk. If you requested or took a protected leave of absence and are now facing retaliation or other improper treatment at work, we strongly encourage you to contact us as soon as possible.
5. Ensure You Receive the Full Compensation You Deserve
Were you denied overtime pay? Is your employer shaving your time or rounding down your hours? Are you being paid less than California’s minimum wage? These are just a few examples of wage and hour violations we see on a regular basis.
6. Make Sure Your Employer Doesn’t Take Advantage of You in Severance Agreement Negotiations
If you have been offered a severance agreement, you have the right to negotiate, and it is essential that you do so. We can review your severance agreement and evaluate the circumstances surrounding the termination of your employment to ensure that your agreement adequately reflects your legal rights.
