Public Entity Defense

CREASON & AARVIG, LLP emphasizes the defense of cities, school districts, risk pools, employee benefit pools, and other public entities. We represent a number of governmental entities throughout Southern California in the areas of personal injury, employment practices, wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment claims, road design defect claims, dangerous conditions of public property, violations of civil rights, police liability, employee benefit litigation, school district representation, and general contract disputes.

Maria Aarvig devotes a considerable portion of her practice to developing an innovative approach to handling these matters in which she can represent her clients’ best interests and keep legal costs at a minimum. She works closely with risk managers and other city officials to ensure she has a full understanding of the issue presented and can provide the most effective representation.

Prominent in Ms. Aarvig’s practice are highly emotionally-charged cases involving claims of sexual abuse and misconduct. Appreciating the severity of such accusations, Ms. Aarvig has the demonstrated ability to balance the need for tough, forceful representation with the sensitivity the claim requires. Ms. Aarvig uses alternative litigation approaches to dispose of such claims quickly and efficiently while minimizing the negative consequences even a fruitless claim may have.

Ms. Aarvig’s record demonstrates exceptional results in pre-trial dispositions. Ms. Aarvig aggressively challenges the claims against her client and invokes the many immunities and privileges from which her clients often benefit. She has the experience to eliminate frivolous claims at early stages and avoids putting her client through the time and expense of advanced-level litigation, and consistently fights to obtain the sanctions available to compensate her clients subjected to such claims.

Management-Side Employment Litigation

CREASON & AARVIG, LLP places a special emphasis on defending public entities and private businesses against employment law claims. Handling a variety of claims, our attorneys understand the trial process and thoroughly prepare your case for trial from the very beginning to maximize your chances of success. We litigate employment law matters such as discrimination claims based on race, sex, religion, national origin, age, or disability. We also aggressively defend claims of hostile work environment or sexual harassment. In non-discrimination areas, we defend wrongful termination cases and employment contract disputes. Before litigation arises, we represent our clients in administrative matters before the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission and the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing.

Much of our education emphasis is directed toward workplace liability and the ever-changing laws that can result in liability for the employer. The firm provides training sessions designed both to ensure that the employer can establish a defense and to sensitize employees to the potential risks they might create for their employer.
