What People Are Saying...

I highly recommend Asha and The Wilkerson Law Office. As a new business owner with over 20 employees, I have come to rely on their extremely knowledgeable and qualified guidance when it comes to all things HR. I've received expert advice in several areas including policy and handbook development, updates to current California and Federal employment law, and the management of specific employee issues. I wouldn't want to imagine running my business without having her on my team.
