SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2011) - Allen Matkins Leck Gamble Mallory & Natsis LLP, a leading California business and real estate law firm, announces the expansion of its labor and employment practice group with the return of Marlene Moffitt as an associate in the firm's San Diego office.

Moffitt first came to Allen Matkins in 2005 as an associate in the firm's San Francisco office. In 2009, she accepted a position as law clerk for the Hon. Roger T. Benitez, United States District Court Judge for the Southern District of California, and decided to return to Allen Matkins this month.

Moffitt represents employers in state and federal courts, as well as in arbitration, on a broad range of employment issues, including discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, wrongful discharge, defamation, wage and hour, trade secret misappropriation, and unfair competition claims. She represents employers in individual, multi-party and class action employment litigation.

"We are extremely happy to welcome Marlene back to Allen Matkins," said Amy Wintersheimer Findley, partner in the firm's San Diego office and chair of that office's labor and employment law practice group. "Her breadth of experience in business litigation will help our clients in many ways and add another important dimension to our growing labor and employment practice."

Moffitt also has extensive business litigation experience, including business tort litigation, fraudulent transfer litigation, bankruptcy litigation, mortgage fraud litigation, landlord-tenant disputes, breach of contract claims, and the use of writs of attachment to preserve a client's interest until judgment can be obtained. Her experience includes obtaining and enforcing multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for clients.

Prior to joining Allen Matkins in 2005, she was an associate at Kaye Scholer LLP.

Born and raised in San Diego, Moffitt often participates in local community and charity events. She received her B.A. in economics, cum laude and with high honors, from Revelle College at the University of California, San Diego. She received her J.D. from Loyola Law School.
