About Desiree Cox Attorney At Law
I am, above all, a victims’ advocate. If you have faced discrimination in the workplace, I want to hold your employer accountable while protecting your job. If you or a loved one has been sexually abused, I want to help you find justice through the legal system.
I’m here to protect you. Together, we can stop the discrimination and abuse.
A Lifelong Passion For Protecting Victims
When I was a junior in college, I volunteered at a receiving home for abused children. I saw kids who were abused repeatedly by their parents, and I couldn’t believe it was happening. I joined the San Diego State University Pre-Law Society hoping that I could someday take action to help children abused by their parents or others.
The next year, the Pre-Law Society sent me to the California Women In Law conference where I developed a passion for civil rights law — through use of this law, I knew I could help victimized people have a voice against those who have caused them harm. Today, I dedicate my law practice to helping the victims of employment discrimination, harassment, retaliation, child molestation and sexual assault.
More Than 30 Years Of Experience
I have practiced law for more than 30 years. Because of my focus on helping individuals facing work discrimination and sex assault, and my significant trial experience in these areas, I have developed a positive reputation throughout the Sonoma County legal community. Many of my cases come to me as referrals from other attorneys who trust in my abilities and my passion for doing what’s right for my clients.
In addition to decades of work on the victim’s side, I also have significant experience with employment and personal injury defense work. My experience on both sides of the aisle allows me to anticipate and circumvent the other sides’ arguments and better protect my clients’ rights.
