IRVINE, Calif., March 17, 2016 – Award-winning California employment, labor and immigration law firm Carothers DiSante & Freudenberger LLP (CDF) announces the promotion of two high-performing attorneys to partners. Dawn Irizarry and Amy Williams possess nearly 30 years of combined experience in protecting California employers from costly litigation. They are among more than 40 CDF attorneys who exclusively practice employment and labor law – and who guide employers statewide through the evolving legal landscape.

Irizarry represents employers – from initial filings to verdict – in matters related to claims of sexual harassment, unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment and other employment-related disputes. She has successfully tried cases in Federal and State courts, in arbitration, before the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and in front of state civil rights enforcement agencies. She also has significant experience conducting internal investigations, providing employers with trusted legal counsel to avoid employee-related litigation.

She has been recognized by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star for her employment law expertise. Irizarry resides in the firm’s Los Angeles office.
Williams received her juris doctor from University of California, Los Angeles School of Law and represents single-location employers to Fortune 500 companies. She counsels California employers and litigates on their behalf in wage and hour class actions and single-plaintiff matters related to discrimination, retaliation, harassment, and wrongful termination in State and Federal Courts and arbitration proceedings.
