A well-known Los Angeles employment attorney once told me, ‘Lister is my right arm,’ and for good reason. Dawn is excellent at what she does and is excellent to work with, including clients, their employees, and vendors. I have known Dawn for over 10 years, and I have nothing but the highest praise for her!

Dawn Kaplan has been a trusted advisor on labor issues for more than a decade. She has been a great resource for several companies I’ve brought her into across different industry verticals from eCommerce and Education to Entertainment and Transportation, helping us navigate California’s challenging labor environment with her approachable but knowledgeable style. Thanks Dawn!!

Scott Brogi
CFO / HyreCar, Inc.


Dawn and her services is a great addition to our organization. For a while, HR responsibilities has been shared between our Controller and GM – which made it more challenging to attend to the demanding responsibilities of being an HR manager. But with Dawn’s arrival, we have found apoint person to truly handle our HR needs. Dawn offers and provides the professionalism and expertise that one would expect from an HR professional. Dawn has made our staff feel at ease, making them comfortable to reach out and discuss their concerns. In turn, Dawn advises and guides our management team to properly address and maneuver through HR issues as guided by her expert knowledge of labor laws and guidelines. Partnering with Dawn is one of the best decisions we’ve made as a company.
