Roland Juarez

Partner

Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP

Roland Juarez is known for handling high-stakes labor and employment cases for some of California’s largest and most high-profile employers, and he has successfully defended clients against the most challenging claims facing employers in California and across the nation. He has secured impressive victories for his clients through innovative strategies — whether by obtaining a trial win for an advertising agency with major implications for the industry itself, obtaining a dismissal of an arduous H-1B visa wage case in the tech and aerospace industry, or finding a breakthrough in a case for a California aerospace giant.

In a potentially precedent-setting case under the Immigration & Nationality Act, involving the H-1B visa program, Juarez secured a win via summary judgment, obtaining dismissal of 74 claims of back pay. In another significant victory, Juarez secured a trial win on behalf of United Collective and Gallegos United (Gallegos), a Southern California-based advertising agency.
