Sacramento Law Firm Changes Name; Nabs Big Victory and Readies for Move to New Office Space
Nov 1, 2011


SACRAMENTO, CALIF.— Any one of these changes would be big enough to deal with but it is par for the course with this local office of Carlton DiSante & Freudenberger LLP, which is changing its name to Carothers DiSante & Freudenberger LLP.

"We are always in motion here whether it is on the client front or navigating the rapids down the American River with our staff and families," says Managing Partner Jeremy Naftel, who heads the Sacramento office of this labor and employment boutique firm. "Our attorneys are very dialed in to the ever changing labor and employment landscape here in Sacramento and our new location will make that even easier," says Naftel of CDF's move to 900 University Avenue.  The move will take place on November 14, 2011.

As CDF celebrates its 17th anniversary, San Diego Managing Partner Dave Carothers' name replaces Chris Carlton's in the firm's name and the firm has launched a new website at

CDF's focus is exclusively on employment related issues in California from North to South.  Their Sacramento attorneys are in constant motion, from the address Mark Spring gave the California Restaurant Association's Education Seminar at the SMUD Headquarters Auditorium in Sacramento last week to the huge court victory Naftel won last week in Los Angeles Superior Court where class certification was denied for 9,000 security guards who alleged late payment of wages. The firm's popular blog, is managed out of its Sacramento office where attorneys keep a close eye on events in the capital.

That statewide focus has brought CDF work in representing and advising companies in industries that include aerospace, apparel, food and beverages, transportation, manufacturing, cable and telecommunications, grocery and retail, healthcare, technology, restaurants, higher education, entertainment, insurance, banking, and employment staffing agencies.

The firm's progressive culture is reflected in its diversity statistics of total women and minority attorneys, who represent 46.67% of the attorneys.  Diversity is also seen in the firm's leadership, as the firm's seven-attorney Executive Committee consists of three women and two minority attorneys.

Founded in 1994, CDF has 29 attorneys in five California offices. The firm's client base includes businesses ranging from Fortune 100 companies to local entrepreneurial enterprises.  The firm's range of practices include class actions, EEO claims, wage and hour, PAGA, unfair competition and trade secrets,  wrongful termination and workplace tort litigation, immigration, traditional labor law, workplace safety, business reorganization, restructuring and downsizing, workplace solutions, advice and training.

CDF maintains offices in Sacramento, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego.  For more information, please contact Dorothy Rausa at or (949) 622-1661.
