We are excited to have Johanna as the newest addition to our team of attorneys, but she is not a new face - we got first acquainted with Johanna as a law clerk as she toiled through law school.
Although a San Diego native, Johanna has traveled the world over but has spent most of her formative years in Virginia, where she received her Undergraduate Degree in Philosophy from Virginia Tech, before returning to California to earn her law degree from from the University of San Francinsco School of Law in 2018, with a concentration in Labor and Employment Law.
Her rigorous externships were a perfect pathway to Peretz & Associates and include experience behind the scenes at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the federal agency dedicated to protecting employees and job applicants against employment discrimination.
She also gleaned a wealth of experience with Duane Morris, LLP, a global firm that has raised the bar in the efforts to advance the cause of diversity, inclusion and corporate equality, all of which match our core values at Peretz & Associates.
When she is not zealously advocating for the rights of workers and other vulnerable individuals, Johanna enjoys cooking, hiking, yoga, swimming, and spending quality time with friends and family.
