Kelcie M. Gosling is of counsel to Shaw Valenza LLP, working in the Firm’s Sacramento office. For almost 25 years, Kelcie has represented public and private employers in employment matters before federal and state courts and administrative agencies. She has handled lawsuits involving discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, wrongful denial of leave, failure to accommodate, wage and hour, and other employment law issues. She has won summary judgment in countless cases. She is a skilled appellate lawyer who protects her lower court victories on appeal. Kelcie also counsels California employers on a variety of employment law issues.
Before attending law school, Kelcie gained valuable experience working in human resources and employee relations. So Kelcie was a client before she was a lawyer. Thanks to that experience, she is acutely aware of workplace practicalities and the burdens that litigation imposes on an organization. Her goal is to get the best possible result while striving to minimize the costs and inconvenience of litigation to her clients. She knows employment cases are won, not by legal expertise alone, but by developing a true understanding of the client’s business, culture and mission.
Kelcie graduated with honors from Pitzer College in 1977, earning a B.A. in English. In 1989, she graduated second in her class from U.C. Davis King Hall School of Law, where she was admitted to the Order of the Coif.
