Employment Law

The Law Office of Mark C. Watson actively works with small and medium sized businesses to properly advise them on how to handle employment issues.  Our goal is to make sure that you do not run afoul of any laws.  Prevention is the key.

However, if you do run into a problem, we can help.  Whether you have a claim made to you by an employee, by a government agency, or are being sued, we can protect your legal rights.  Of course, it is always better to contact us sooner rather than later.

Claims Against Government Entities

They say “You Can’t Fight City Hall.”  While it is difficult, you have a better chance of success if you have The Law Office of Mark C. Watson on your side.  Mr. Watson has over 17 years of experience in presenting claims, disputes, and projects to cities, counties, the State of California and the United States.  While most claims fail, Mr. Watson has enjoyed a very high success rate.  The reason is because we will meet you and discuss your claim without charge and assess whether you have a valid claim.  In many cases, we are able to reach a settlement without proceeding all the way to trial.

To achieve the best results for your project, claim, or dispute, you should contact The Law Offices of Mark C. Watson as early as possible.  This way, we can make sure that you have everything in the record that you need.  If the decision is adverse, you will have a better chance to succeed in Court.

Civil Appeals & Writ Practices

The Law Offices of Mark C. Watson has represented numerous clients in both the California Court of Appeal and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal.  We will not only prepare your appeal and argue your case, but we will make good use of the mediation services provided by both the California and Federal courts.

If you receive an adverse decision before or even during trial, The Law Offices of Mark C. Watson can file a writ of mandate with the appropriate appellate court.  This way, you can concentrate on your litigation for trial and still have someone working on obtaining a review of the decision.

Mediation Services

If you are engaged in a dispute and would rather settle than litigate, we can act as a mediator for the dispute.  We provide mediation services to other attorneys and clients for very reasonable rates. 


The Law Office of Mark C. Watson can help you if you would rather arbitrate a dispute, rather than proceed to trial.  Mr. Watson has acted as an arbitrator for more than a decade.  In fact, he has been appointed as a Judicial Arbitrator by the San Mateo Superior Court.  Our staff is very accomplished at processing your dispute and will be happy to serve you.
