I just settled cases like that for a database engineer in Texas and another in Pennsylvania. This new paradigm of big companies out-sourcing their workers and then not putting any pressure on the contractors when they don't pay the people who did the actual work for the big company, is getting too common. It's disgusting. 

Those last two I did, cost about $30,000.00 in legal fees before we got the case to the point where it could be settled.

I have handled several lawsuits in Santa Clara. The court allows lawyers to appear by phone for most meetings, until trial and one a couple of weeks before trial. They might make you come out here for your deposition. Sometimes the other side will agree to a deposition by phone, and sometimes the court will order it, but in theory, the other side's lawyer is entitled to take your deposition here and in person. We can arrange for it to be near the airport, so that you might be able to fly in and fly out the same day. Depends on airline schedules.

If you appreciate this free advice, please remember to refer me to any friends or acquaintances who need a lawyer. Referrals are still our best source of new business.

Do you have a revocable living trust to protect your heirs against probate? Probate takes forever, is expensive, and is annoying. Do your family a favor. Set up a trust, and put all your property, especially any real property, into the trust. Since it is revocable, you can change it, add to it, take property out of it, or even cancel it completely, at any time. We set up such trusts, provide a pour-over will as a back-up for any property that does not make it into the trust, provide you with blank durable powers of attorney for health care and financial decisions, in case you become incapable of making such decisions while still alive, and convey one piece of real property to the trust, usually the family home, for $1500.00. If you would like to hire me to do this, let me know, and I'll send you a list of the information I need.
