Sergio H. Parra is the lead attorney for JRG Attorneys at Law’s labor and employment practice. Sergio represents a wide array of employers in labor and employment related litigation in state, federal, and administrative venues. Sergio is also called on a daily basis to provide practical advice on employment matters, including internal complaints and investigations, employment agreements, and wage and hour matters.
Sergio’s practice is focused on employment litigation, with a particular emphasis on the defense of wage and hour claims, employee class actions, discrimination, business owner/partner disputes, and wrongful termination. As these cases often pose significant risks to clients, Sergio has been successful through various litigation strategies in defusing and reducing that exposure that such disputes may present.
Sergio is a lifelong resident of the Monterey Bay with roots in both Watsonville and Salinas. As an undergraduate at Dominican University, Sergio majored in Business Management while interning for the City of Watsonville and the San Rafael Chamber of Commerce. After college, Sergio worked for several high-tech companies in Silicon Valley, including several startups, before being hired as an Analyst with the City of Redwood.
Intrigued by the legal questions he encountered at the City of Redwood, Sergio decided to attend the University of San Francisco School of Law. After graduating law school, Sergio returned to the Central Coast to practice law. When Sergio is away from the office, he is actively involved with several youth non-profits in addition to cheering and supporting his children in their sporting and scholastic endeavors.
