Employment attorney Bill Metke is an active and outspoken advocate for the legal rights of working people. Bill provides advice and guidance regarding employees' rights in the workplace, and he represents plaintiffs in litigation matters throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
Before launching his plaintiff-side employment law firm in 2011, Bill had already been a practicing litigator for ten years, and had been twice recognized as a “Rising Star” by Northern California Super Lawyers magazine.
