About the firm


Hudock Employment Law Group provides employment litigation and counseling services to growth-minded companies in California, helping them protect their reputations and attract top talent.

Led by Robert Hudock, a seasoned employment litigator, Rob understands the entrepreneurial mindset, having founded and led his own firm. He is equally adept working with business owners, CEOs, and general counsel. He plans for the long game with all his clients, focusing on their trajectories, reputations, and how to help them scale their workforce, not just resolve the immediate case. As an experienced triathlete, he has the discipline, determination, focus, and leadership to successfully help clients achieve their objectives and keep their businesses moving forward.

Rob understands that attracting and retaining game-changing talent is one of the key factors to helping companies grow smarter and faster. Companies suffer when key employees or teams leave, or when potentially damaging litigation involving employees goes public. One international recruiting firm predicts that the labor skills shortage in the tech sector could reach as high as 4.3 million workers in 2030. By successfully managing litigation threats, Hudock Employment Law Group protects a company’s good name, which gives them an edge in hiring in highly competitive markets.

Rob is drawn to the human element of his client relationships. “I work to spare my clients the pain of litigation. It’s my responsibility to absorb and protect them from it.” That discipline, combined with highly effective preparation, analysis, and case strategy, means that Rob’s clients can focus on their businesses, confident that their matters are on the right track.

Robert Hudock was referred as counsel for a substantial lawsuit an employee brought against us. We worked with Rob and another attorney at Hudock Employment Law Group. They were both very knowledgeable and professional and most importantly got the job done. Last night, after putting in a 13 hour day, the case was settled in mediation at 10:30 pm and a large part of the kudos go to Robert Hudock.

If you find yourself in the State of California with an employment law dilemma, there is no better person to represent you in my mind than attorney Rob Hudock. He is a true pro, a veteran employment defense attorney who is righteously indignant about what happens to some California employers. You need not only an experienced employment defense attorney, but someone who cares, who is a professional, who knows the law, and will fight tirelessly on your behalf.

I really enjoyed working with Rob as an expert witness on the litigation between a Business Broker and a Business Seller. He hit every pertinent item to show that the Brokerage Firm was negligent in their handling of the negotiations between their client the business owner and the criminal prospective buyer. The buyer had no grounds to have even filed a lawsuit, in my opinion. Fortunately, the business owner hired Rob.  I very much look forward to working with Rob in the future. He is a very sharp, experienced litigator.
