Shut out of careers with the state of California, Miles Locker and Rachel Folberg have gone private. The two former Division of Labor Standards Enforcement lawyers opened a two-lawyer San Francisco shop, Locker Folberg, in April.

Locker was ousted from the DLSE in 2006, at least in part because of his pro-worker stance on big-ticket wage and hour rules. Folberg left shortly after and started her own part-time practice.
