    DELAND, FL, June 29, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Joan Herrington has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

A seasoned legal professional with years of practiced expertise, Ms. Herrington excels as the sole proprietor of Bay Area Employment Law Office, which offers both meditation and litigation services in the area of discrimination in employment. In her work as a trial attorney, she has also represented tenants and consumers. Earlier in her career, Ms. Herrington worked as an administrative law judge for the Fair Employment and Housing Commission, where she drafted regulations and presided over employment, housing and Unruh Act cases brought by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing.

Previously, Ms. Herrington gained valuable expertise in law as an associate for the Law Office of Cary J. Silverman and as an adjunct professor of disability law at Golden Gate University's School of Law.

Though her career has been filled with highlights, Ms. Herrington is most proud of drafting the California Fair Employment and Housing Act disability regulations because of the broader impact these have than litigating individual cases.

An expert in her field, Ms. Herrington received a Labor and Employment Law Certificate with distinction and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Golden Gate University School of Law before earning admission to practice in all California courts, the U.S. District Court for the Northern and Eastern Districts of California, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
