Elizabeth Nguyen, co-founder and shareholder of Lidman Law, is an employment litigator who has extensive experience in a broad range of employment law matters in arbitration and both state and federal courts throughout the State of California. She has exclusively litigated wage and hour class actions, representative actions under the California Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA), wrongful termination, discrimination, and harassment matters for most of her legal career.
Elizabeth was selected to the 2019, 2020 and 2021 Southern California Super Lawyers list (in the area of Employment & Labor), an honor reserved for those lawyers who exhibit excellence in practice. Only 5% of attorneys in Southern California receive this distinction.
Her practice currently focuses on litigating wage and hour class actions and representative PAGA actions on behalf of employees who were not paid all wages, missed meal or rest breaks, not being paid all overtime wages due at the correct hourly rate, misclassification, among other issues.
Prior to starting Lidman Law with Scott Lidman, Elizabeth Nguyen was a partner at Littler Mendelson, the world’s largest employment firm representing employers. As an employment litigator who spent over a decade representing representing companies of all sizes, from small businesses to Fortune 100 companies, Elizabeth is able to bring a unique perspective to her current practice that focuses on representing employees.
As a second-generation Vietnamese-American, Elizabeth takes great pride in representing employees who may need help in voicing their concerns when their employers violate the law.
Elizabeth graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration from Pepperdine University, cum laude, in 2001 and Loyola Law School in 2005.
Elizabeth is also an Adjunct Professor at USC’s Gould School of Law where she has taught HR Compliance and Employment Discrimination Law.
She is admitted to practice law in California and Oregon.
