Sheila M. Witt

 

Sheila Witt is the Founding Attorney at Witt Law Firm, PC. Having personally experienced unlawful discrimination and harassment in the workplace, Ms. Witt opened Witt Law Firm with a vision to fight for employees’ rights against unscrupulous employers.

 

Ms. Witt was born and raised in Southern California and was accepted into UCLA at the age of 16. She thrived at UCLA, serving in leadership positions in school government and advocacy organizations and developing a passion for serving the underprivileged and underrepresented. Ms. Witt was on the Dean’s Honor List each and every quarter of her four years at UCLA, and earned a Bachelor’s degree in sociology and graduated with cum laude and Alpha Kappa Delta honors.

 

Ms. Witt decided to turn her focus to the law and attended Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, California. Her academic achievements continued and she was awarded several First Honors Awards. Ms. Witt also served as an extern for the Center for Conflict Resolution and for the Honorable Victor Wright of the Los Angeles County Superior Court.

 

Upon graduation, Ms. Witt began her career as an associate for the prestigious international law firm McDermott Will & Emery LLP. As a member of the firm’s Trial Department, she gained invaluable experience in a variety of high stakes, complex civil litigation matters, including in areas of employment law, healthcare litigation, and other financial litigation. Ms. Witt also took on a number of pro bono matters, including obtaining a nearly quarter million dollar settlement for low-income workers in a wage and hour dispute against a sweatshop employer.

 

After moving to Orange County in 2012, Ms. Witt decided to open Witt Law Firm and quickly focused her practice on fighting for employees’ rights throughout the state of California. Ms. Witt is proud to have obtained a large number of favorable settlements and trial victories on behalf of her clients and, in fact, boasts an undefeated trial record. In recognition of her success, Ms. Witt was named a 2016 and 2017 Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine, an honor bestowed on only 2.5% of attorneys in California.

 

Ms. Witt is also involved in the local community and is an active member of numerous charity and volunteer organizations including serving as a volunteer attorney at Public Law Center, an active member of the Junior League of Orange County, California (JLOCC), and a supporter of OC Elite.
