George W. Abele Sr

George Abele is a partner in the Employment Law practice of Paul Hastings and is based in the firm’s Los Angeles office. He divides his practice among his employment litigation, “disaster mitigation,” and appellate practices. Mr. Abele’s employment litigation practice includes the representation of private and public employers in all aspects of employment law, including wage and hour class actions, wrongful discharge, discrimination, sexual harassment litigation, and traditional labor arbitrations. He has particular experience in wage and hour class actions and has recently obtained decertification for a firm client. Mr. Abele also helps lead the firm’s disaster mitigation practice, helping his clients undo or significantly reduce disastrous verdicts levied by California juries. His extensive appellate practice serves as a perfect complement to disaster mitigation, as most of those matters ultimately are resolved in the courts of appeal.
