C. Zane Becker, Esq. is an experienced employment law attorney located in San Jose, California. Zane attended law school at Santa Clara University and gained invaluable experience clerking for the Honorable Mary Jo Levinger in Santa Clara County Superior Court. As an attorney, Zane started out representing employees only, taking on multiple Fortune 500 companies and other huge corporations located throughout the country.
For years Zane excelled as a plaintiff’s attorney, obtaining six figure settlements for several of his clients while taking on the largest law firms and more experienced attorneys. Zane was also co-counsel on a class action which resulted in a settlement in excess of six million ($6,000,000) dollars for his client.
After successfully representing employees for years, Zane now primarily represents employers. Zane continues to succeed and has saved employers hundreds of thousands of dollars by defeating employee claims without merit and by educating employers on how to comply with California’s complex employment laws.
“The best investments I have made in protecting my business”
I am a small business owner and I have worked with Zane for the past two years. He has helped talk me through a number of issues I have had with employees, including walking me through the process of terminating employees. He is able to explain the intricate and annoying employment laws that California has to offer small business owners in a way that I can understand.
Having Zane by my side helps me sleep at night because now I know that I have someone in my corner to help prevent me from falling into what seems to be a number of dangerous traps for business owners, for example all the rules around paying exempt and nonexempt employees or meal/rest break rules. I can also sleep knowing that if something does go wrong he will be able to fight on my behalf. I highly recommend all business owners, whether you are currently in trouble or want to avoid trouble to talk to Zane. He is one the of the best investments I have made in protecting my business!
