Felicia L. Mears

Felicia focuses her practice on labor and employment and business litigation matters. Her litigation experience includes counseling and representing employers in a variety of industries with respect to a wide scope of labor, employment, and business matters, including wage and hour claims, employment discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination, harassment, and breach of fiduciary duties.

Felicia was born and raised in Santa, Clarita California but has called Kern County home for over 14 years. Prior to becoming an attorney, Felicia worked as an associate clinical social worker providing mental health therapy to children, adults, couples, and groups in outpatient clinics as well as the California correctional system.
