Linda is an experienced trial attorney having tried 39 jury trials in both state and federal court. Ms. Hurevitz has earned a reputation for being able to step into a case on the eve of trial. The types of cases she handles include all types of discrimination claims, harassment, retaliation, whistleblower, wrongful termination, and wage and hour claims. She provides advice and counseling to her clients to avoid litigation and has conducted internal investigations to respond to EEOC and DFEH Charges.

Earlier in her legal career, Linda represented hospitals in medical malpractice cases. This experience has given her a unique knowledge of the healthcare industry and laws governing the practice of medicine. As a result, many of her current cases involve employment issues in healthcare settings.

Ms. Hurevitz has served as a mediator for more than 25 years. The mediation services have been both private and through the Los Angeles Superior Court. She is also a peer mediation trainer and volunteer with the Western Justice Center.

Linda’s skills as a trial attorney come from a unique background. Although Linda had attended law school, she opted to go on the road as a performer rather than take the bar exam. As the lead singer with The New Deal Rhythm Band under the stage name Linda Asher, she replaced Cheryl Bentyne who left to join the Manhattan Transfer. After many years of performing internationally and recording two albums, Linda decided to retire from the road and pursue a career in law. She tried her first case during her first year in practice.

Linda nevertheless has not abandoned her music. She can be heard singing with The Singers in Law, a vocal jazz quartet; is a featured vocalist with The Big Band of Barristers; and contributes her torchy contralto voice to Legal Voices of the Los Angeles Lawyers Philharmonic. Among the highlights of her performances has been Disney Hall five years in a row and annual performances for the members of the California Supreme Court.
