About the firm

HUDOCK EMPLOYMENT LAW GROUP

Hudock Employment Law Group provides employment litigation and counseling services to growth-minded companies in California, helping them protect their reputations and attract top talent.

Led by Robert Hudock, a seasoned employment litigator, Rob understands the entrepreneurial mindset, having founded and led his own firm. He is equally adept working with business owners, CEOs, and general counsel. He plans for the long game with all his clients, focusing on their trajectories, reputations, and how to help them scale their workforce, not just resolve the immediate case. As an experienced triathlete, he has the discipline, determination, focus, and leadership to successfully help clients achieve their objectives and keep their businesses moving forward.

Rob understands that attracting and retaining game-changing talent is one of the key factors to helping companies grow smarter and faster. Companies suffer when key employees or teams leave, or when potentially damaging litigation involving employees goes public. One international recruiting firm predicts that the labor skills shortage in the tech sector could reach as high as 4.3 million workers in 2030. By successfully managing litigation threats, HELG protects a company’s good name, which gives them an edge in hiring in highly competitive markets.

Rob is drawn to the human element of his client relationships. “I work to spare my clients the pain of litigation. It’s my responsibility to absorb and protect them from it.” That discipline, combined with highly effective preparation, analysis, and case strategy, means that Rob’s clients can focus on their businesses, confident that their matters are on the right track.
