About us

Toni J. Jaramilla

Toni Jaramilla believes in creating positive social change through dedicated and compassionate advocacy for the rights of workers and victims of police abuse and shootings. Since 1994, she has successfully litigated hundreds of cases of discrimination, racial and sexual harassment, wrongful termination, disability accommodations, leave law violations, retaliation/whistleblower, and wage and hour claims resulting in millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts. She represents clients from minimum wage earners to high level executives in all industries. She has extensive experience in both state and federal courts and has successfully argued before the California Court of Appeal. 

Associated with civil rights cases, she has appeared in news, media, and press conferences demanding justice for her clients. She is a frequent speaker at seminars and on radio shows, and has been a guest lecturer at law schools. She has lead several legal bar organizations as the first Pilipina woman to fill such leadership roles while advocating for improved cultural and gender diversity in the legal profession. She lobbies and testifies at the California State Capitol and helps draft stronger legislation to protect California workers, particularly on the issues of sexual harassment and gender equality.

Toni Jaramilla is Of Counsel to the firm, Alexander Morrison + Fehr, LLP, a premier employment and civil rights firm with decades of successful jury trial verdicts.
