LOS ANGELES – April 23, 2020 – California labor, employment and immigration defense law firm Carothers DiSante & Freudenberger LLP (CDF) proudly congratulates Los Angeles Partner Dawn Irizarry for being named a “Top Health Care Lawyer” in California for 2020 by the Daily Journal. The list features the top lawyers practicing health care law in California.
Irizarry is the Chair of CDF’s Employment Law, Healthcare Practice Group. She has defended employers for over 18 years, with a particular emphasis in defending healthcare organizations, including hospitals, medical technology companies, physician specialty groups, and urgent care centers.
Dawn proactively engages with her healthcare clients on compliance strategies to avoid litigation in the first place. She provides general employment advice and counseling on many human resource-related issues to her healthcare clients when they are faced with California’s complex and ever changing employment laws. With the fluctuating state of heath care in America today, Dawn remains current on California employment matters to ensure a successful and favorable outcome for her clients. In addition, she regularly speaks at symposiums specific to the healthcare industry on this issue, as well as navigating religious accommodations in a healthcare setting and ensuring employee safety in an environment where patients are sometimes under the influence of mind-altering pain medication.
“I’m honored to be recognized by such a prominent publication such as the Daily Journal and to be included in a list of many other distinguished attorneys providing legal services to the healthcare industry,” said Irizarry. “The healthcare industry has been thrust to the frontlines, combatting the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses in this industry, now more than ever, must ensure they remain viable. From advising hospitals and medical groups on how to stay in compliance with California’s complex employment laws to defending employment litigation on alleged claims of age and disability discrimination claims to failure to accommodate, I am committed to providing my clients with personalized attention to minimize the stress of litigation and decision-making on employment law matters.
