We vigorously advocate for our clients through a comprehensive process starting with the intake process.  Every case is reviewed by one of our experienced attorneys who is able to make a determination as to how we may proceed with your case.  We will discuss with you your legal claims and develop a strategy for achieving your goals.  From the day your case is filed, all the way through settlement or jury trial, we will not give up until there is a resolution on your case.

An independent contractor is generally a natural person, business or corporation who have their own separately established bona fide business that provides goods or services to another entity under terms specified in a contract.  Factors that are considered when distinguishing between independent contractors and employees include:

  • the extent to which services are integral to the employer’s business
  • the permanence of the relationship
  • the amount of investment in equipment
  • the degree of control by the principal
  • the amount of financial risk
  • the amount of initiative, judgment or foresight in open-market competition with others required for the success of the claimed independent enterprise

When pursuing a claim for compensation owed to you as an independent contractor, it is important to select attorneys who have the necessary knowledge and experience to handle these kinds of cases.

Setareh Law Group has represented clients in independent contractor cases filed throughout California.  We are aggressive and relentless trial and appellate lawyers with one singular focus — to achieve the best possible results for our deserving clients.
