Responsive and Insightful Latika has provided me with timely feedback with respect to two offers of employment. I appreciate her responsiveness and her consultative approach. She answers questions thoughtfully and helps me consider the points of view and perspectives of the parties I’m negotiating with - I value her insight. My understanding is that she and her firm specialize in class action employment litigation and representing labor organizations. Thank you, Latika, for taking the time to advise me. I’m happy to recommend your services.

Latika Malkani joined Siegel LeWitter Malkani in 1996, and since then has fought to preserve and enforce the rights of women and men working in a variety of professions. Latika's advocacy has included tireless representation of employees seeking justice and improved conditions in the workplace. Latika has a proven record of successful results, and has helped hundreds of employees establish better working conditions, negotiate severance and post-separation packages, as well as obtain fair and just compensation through enforcement of state and federal laws. Latika believes that no employee should be made to suffer inequality or humiliation in order to earn a living, and she perseveres until her clients win positive changes and adequate relief.

Latika is a California native, raised in Sacramento. After graduating from UC Berkeley with her B.A., she spent two years working with Asian Immigrant Women Advocates, an Oakland-based nonprofit organization, organizing with immigrant women workers who were demanding improvements in their workplaces and communities. Following this opportunity, Latika returned to Sacramento for law school, graduating from UOP McGeorge School of Law where she excelled in oral argument and advocacy. She has worked with numerous social justice law firms throughout California, including Public Advocates (San Francisco), the Legal Aid Society of Alameda County, Community Legal Services (Sacramento), and the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles.

When she is not at work, Latika enjoys spending time outdoors, exploring the Bay Area with her children.
