Employment Discrimination Attorney: John F. McCarthy
Employment discrimination attorney John F. McCarthy can help you if you have been passed over for promotion, let go, not hired, or racially / sexually harassed.
John F. McCarthy is a workplace discrimination lawyer who fights for victims of discrimination based on age, race, gender, religion, pregnancy, disability or medical condition. Gender discrimination is very common, followed by age discrimination and race discrimination. Many employees hire John to seek legal remedy for being harassed because of their religion or their national origin.
John is a respected San Diego employment lawyer who can help determine whether you have an actionable employment discrimination claim, and if so, assist you to obtain a settlement to compensate you for your losses.
It is common for victims of workplace discrimination to simply put up with it. Unfortunately, discrimination in the workplace often takes a mental and emotional toll on the victim. Ignoring discrimination by brushing off inappropriate remarks, lost job advancement opportunities, and harassment does not make it go away.
Discrimination is illegal!
You should not have to put up with it.
Can an “Ordinary Person” take on a Company ?
How can an ordinary person get justice for suffering discrimination? Discrimination attorney John F. McCarthy passionately seeks justice for the “ordinary person” typically facing a company that has vast resources and deep pockets. Attorney McCarthy offers a “contingency fee” option (no recovery – no fee) where his law firm takes on the financial burden to employment discrimination claim, and file a lawsuit and litigate your case in court should a settlement not be worked out.
John works tirelessly to get you the largest possible recovery — and when possible — seeking punitive damages to increase the amount of money you win and to deter the employer’s future behavior.

Ordinary People “Level the Playing Field” by Hiring a Powerful Law Firm
Ordinary people find the odds stacked against them when confronting an employer (private-sector or government). Making a claim (on your own) over an unlawful employment matter can be a scary prospect. Companies and governemnt employers usually have legal teams on staff or retainer, and over time have developed strategies for quickly shutting down lawsuits brought against them by their employees.
Most victims of workplace discrimination — and most employers — would rather resolve their discrimination claim by negotiating a favorable settlement. John F. McCarthy is expert at making a convincing case to the employer WHY it is in the companies’ interest to settle quickly, fairly and privately. Savvy employers can be motivated to make a settlement to lessen the agony, expense, bad press and avoidance of state and federal government agencies investigating, meddling, penalties and fines all brought down on the employer the result of filing state and federal government agency claims and lawsuits.
Contingency Fee Cases: No Recovery — No Fee
Employment attorneys take cases for no money up front. They do this because very few employees (ordinary people) have the financial resources to fund a legal battle against an employer with vast resources and deep pockets.
Using a contingency fee arrangement (no win – no pay) – levels the playing field, empowering a lone victimized worker to take on the biggest private-sector or state or federal employer. Labor law attorneys are eventually paid by court-ordered fees and/or a “contingency fee” agreement which is a percentage of any recovery. If there is no recovery, then there are no charges.
Employees who take on their employer alone statistically get nowhere or lose their employment claim and lawsuit. If John F. McCarthy agrees that you have submitted a good employment discrimination case, and he has time on his calendar, perhaps he can help you work to win your case…
