Steve Lopez represents consumers, employees and whistleblowers who have been harmed by corporate misconduct. He has prosecuted a variety of consumer protection cases ranging from false advertising to defective products, as well as complex employment cases involving misclassification and wage and hour claims brought under state and federal laws. Steve is also involved in the investigation and development of new cases.
He serves on the Board of Directors of Consumer Attorneys of California, and was selected from a statewide pool of applicants for the 2015 Diversity Leadership Academy, a prestigious training program aimed to educate the next generation of progressive leaders.
Steve is a 2014 graduate of the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, where he was a Publishing Editor for the California Law Review and an Editor for the Berkeley Journal of Employment and Labor Law. He was also a member of the La Raza Law Students Association and the Legal Aid Society–Employment Law Center’s Berkeley Workers’ Rights Clinic.
Prior to law school, Mr. Lopez performed research for a consulting firm dedicated to improving justice programs. He received his B.A. in economics and international relations from the University of Virginia in 2008.
Most impressive to me was Steve’s attitude and always being available when I needed to ask a question, whether it was big or small.
