Al is an equal rights attorney in San Diego, California, specializing in representing men who are targeted by businesses’ sex-based promotions, often innocuously labeled “Ladies’ Night” or “Ladies’ Day.” He represented the prevailing plaintiffs, including several NCFM members, in the landmark California Supreme Court case of Marc Angelucci v. Century Supper Club (2007) 40 Cal.3d 24. Angelucci concerned a Los Angeles supper club that charged men a $20 cover charge, but let women in free, and frisked men for weapons, but not women, before entering. The California Supreme Court unanimously reversed rulings by a unanimous Court of Appeal and trial court, which both held that disfavored groups had to first assert their right to equal treatment to the offending business in order to have standing to file a discrimination claim under California’s Unruh Civil Rights Act.

Al holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Pennsylvania State University in Environmental Science. For fourteen years he designed and sold water treatment and pollution control equipment in Southeast Texas. After prevailing as a plaintiff in three lawsuits—two against former employers that would not pay him his sales commissions after leaving their employ, and one against his car insurance company for accusing him of torching his car, Al decided he was going to beat them and join them by attending law school at California Western School of Law. He is a member of both the State Bar of California and the State Bar of Texas.

Al will provide free consultation to NCFM members who experience discrimination in public accommodation.

    You realize this guy sued the Oakland A's for not giving him a sun hat on Mother's Day right? This hat giveaway came after a 5K run for Breast Cancer Awareness, too. Rot in hell. Earn money in a real way. And your mom died of breast cancer? I'm sure she is really proud of you. Good work Satan.

    I'm glad he has no shame in fighting discrimination and facing silly name-callers and reactionaries. Thank you, Al.
