Linh Cao is an Associate in the Labor & Employment Group at O'Hagan Meyer. She represents employers in a variety of cases and administrative actions, including claims for harassment, discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination, reasonable accommodations, the interactive process, CFRA/FMLA leave, wage and hour, and fair housing practices.
Prior to joining O’Hagan Meyer, Ms. Cao worked for a public entity defense firm in the inland empire where she counseled and defended clients with respect to labor and employment matters, complex litigation claims and personal injury matters. In July 2019 Ms. Cao successfully defended at trial the County of San Bernardino in a traumatic brain injury case, wherein the net verdict was substantially lower than the County’s CCP § 998 offer. Consequently, this allowed the County to recover substantial costs from the net result. Ms. Cao also worked for an Orange County law firm that specialized in general civil defense and insurance litigation. While there she litigated matters involving personal injury, product liability, commercial general liability, and premises liability representing insurance carriers, public entities, and corporations.
Ms. Cao earned her Juris Doctor from Southwestern Law School and participated in the school's accelerated SCALE program, in which students complete three years of law school courses in just two years. In addition to her regular course load, she was a member of the Trial Advocacy Honors Program and worked as an extern at the L.A. County District Attorney's office, gaining valuable courtroom experience. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and Political Science from California State University, Los Angeles.
