About Denisha

Denisha P. McKenzie represents and counsels employers in all areas of labor and employment law in state and federal courts, as well as before state and federal agencies, including the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), and the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE).

A significant portion of her practice focuses on discrimination, retaliation, and wrongful termination cases, wherein she represents management in a variety of cases involving allegations of discrimination based on race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy, disability, and occupational injuries, among other claims.

McKenzie also focuses her practice on providing advice to clients regarding employee rights and benefits, including wage and hour, meal and rest periods, occupational safety and health, paid sick leave, family and medical leave, agricultural worker protections, and a variety of other statutorily-mandated employee protections. As part of this work, she regularly drafts employment documents, including handbooks, leave policies, severance and settlement agreements, arbitration agreements, and injury and illness prevention manuals.

McKenzie is a graduate of the University of California, Irvine School of Law, where she was a member of the school's Inaugural Class. As a law student, Denisha co-founded the Orange County Human Rights Association (OCHRA); was one of the first student co-authors of the inaugural edition of the UC Irvine Law Review; and received the distinction of Pro Bono honors upon graduation for completing over 120 hours of pro bono legal work in law school. She currently serves on the University of California - Irvine (UCI) Law School's Inclusion and Diversity Committee.
