Carothers DiSante & Freudenberger LLP (CDF), an award-winning employment, labor and immigration law firm recognized for protecting employers with workforces in California for nearly 25 years, was recently named one of the “Best Law Firms for Minority Attorneys” in Law360’s 2018 Glass Ceiling Report for firms with 20-149 attorneys.

In contrast, 50 percent of CDF non-partner attorneys are minorities, while 32 percent of all CDF attorneys are minorities, and one-third of CDF’s equity partner management committee is minority or female.
