Ravi Sattiraju has built an impressive string of successes representing plaintiffs in suits claiming wage-and-hour violations, misclassification and hostile work environments. He finds satisfaction in plaintiff-side employment law because behind all the legal issues are relatable human stories.

In January, the Supreme Court ruled that a class of truck drivers represented by Sattiraju was entitled to overtime pay from their employer in Branch v. Cream-o-Land Dairy. In May 2018, a U.S. District Court judge ruled in favor of a class of furniture delivery truck drivers represented by Sattiraju when he found that retailer Bob’s Discount Furniture and its delivery contractor could not enforce an arbitration agreement whose language was deemed ambiguous.
