David Rosenfeld

David Rosenfeld, a partner at Weinberg, Roger & Rosenfeld in Alameda, California, has been practicing law on behalf of the unions since 1973. He learned labor law from David Feller. He has argued many important cases before the United States Supreme Court, the California Supreme Court, various federal and state courts of appeal and the National Labor Relations Board. He takes particular pride in developing creative and unusual tactics, both in the courts as well as outside of the courts. His book entitled “Offensive Bargaining” published by the National Labor College and the strategies he has developed have been used by unions throughout the country as an effective strategy in the bargaining context. His annual booklet “Offensive Use of the California Labor Code” has encouraged California Unions and worker advocates to use wage and hour issues more aggressively.

He has taught various labor and employment related courses at the law school since 2004 including a yearly seminar entitled “Representing Low Wage Workers.” He also has taught a seminar entitled “The Law of Organizing Workers.” He is the faculty advisor for the Berkeley Journal of Employment and Labor Law.
