Ann Fromholz

Ann Fromholz has practiced employment law for more than 23 years. She founded The Fromholz Firm to provide excellent counsel to individuals and businesses, focused on reaching the best outcome for the firm’s clients.

Ann’s goal is to offer sensitive, thorough investigations; thoughtful, pragmatic representation for executives; practical consulting to small businesses; and top-notch training and expert witness services. The firm does this by maintaining a focus on the best service and result for each client. There is nothing cookie-cutter about this approach. That is why Ann calls it “law that works.”

In her decades of experience, Ann has worked on every side of employment law:

  • She has represented individuals and businesses, plaintiffs and defendants.
  • She worked as a partner at large law firms representing businesses.
  • She worked as in-house counsel at companies small and large.
  • She has been an employee of small and large companies.

These varied experiences help Ann understand how best to serve her clients.

In an employment law environment, time and cost are critical parts of the equation. Whether you are a company that needs a neutral investigation into allegations of workplace misconduct, an educational institution that needs a Title IX investigation into sensitive allegations of sexual assault on campus, an individual executive seeking representation to negotiate an employment contract or severance, or a business needing cost-effective and preventive guidance, The Fromholz Firm can help.

Employment is a relationship. Both parties benefit from a shared understanding of goals and expectations. Ann can help clarify that relationship—preventing disputes from arising, and helping to resolve them when they do.

The same is true of the relationship between client and counselor. Ann is committed to building a relationship with her clients that is forthright and respectful. She promises open communication, clear analysis, honest evaluation, and reliable responsiveness.

Ann is a native Californian. She attended Dartmouth College, and came home to attend USC Law School. She was elected as a Fellow in the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, the highest peer recognition a labor and employment lawyer can achieve. Ann is admitted to practice in California and in Texas, and is the second woman in her family (after her grandmother Terese Fromholz) to be admitted to United States Supreme Court.

Ann is a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association Judicial Appointments Committee, which evaluates applicants for the Los Angeles Superior Court bench. Ann is a member of the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Country Bar Association Counsel for Justice, which is the bar association’s charitable arm. She is a Sustaining Member of the Association of Workplace Investigators and has been certified to conduct Title IX investigations by the Association of Title IX Administrators (ATIXA). Ann keeps apprised of the developments in employment law as an active member of the American Bar Association Labor and Employment Law Section and the Los Angeles County Bar Association Labor and Employment Section. She also is a member of the American Bar Association Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice.

Work is not Ann’s whole life. She believes in work-life balance and is very involved in her community. She helps victims of domestic violence and elder abuse obtain temporary and permanent restraining orders at the LACBA Domestic Violence Legal Services Project. She works with and support many Southern California non-profits, including the Pasadena Community Foundation and the Pablove Foundation. For the past four years, she has coached the mock trial team students from Animo Pat Brown Charter High School in the annual Constitutional Rights Foundation trial competition.

Ann is a Dodgers fan, a bad singer, and a slow runner. She throws left and bats left. To Ann, the glass is never less than half-full and she always tries to take life one day at a time.
