Top San Francisco Official Wrongfully Terminated, Gomerman | Bourn & Associates, Formerly known as Law Offices of Tanya Gomerman Steps In

Updated: May 7

Our office is passionate regarding any institution that wrongfully terminates a competent and experienced employee without cause. San Francisco’s former Deputy Director of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner was let go after refusing to falsify an autopsy report and requesting paternity leave after the birth of his daughter. Rightfully so, the victim, Christopher Wirowek, sued alleging civil rights violations, including harassment, abuse, and retaliatory conduct at his former workplace.

We currently represent Mr. Wirowek and are fighting on his behalf. City Administrator Naomi Kelly requested that Mr. Wirowek alter the autopsy records of Public Defender Jeff Adachi, an illegal request. Mr. Wirowek refused the proposal, which brought on Mrs. Kelly’s wrath, who disregarded policy, protocol, and the law.

Tanya Gomerman said, “The City and County of San Francisco, specifically Ms. Kelly’s office, is no stranger to corruption and scandal. Mr. Wirowek was a victim of retaliation for attempting to stop that cycle of corruption and abuse of power that continues to plague the administrative office.”

Cases like Mr. Wirowek’s, in which employees are wrongfully terminated, are not uncommon. Every year we read about countless unfortunate situations involving a fantastic employee who is doing their job and then is suddenly released by their company. In this case, morality and law were involved. It’s clear-cut. But most are not so lucky. Without the help of an experienced wrongful termination attorney, most never see a dime.

Like Christopher Wirowek, if you were wrongfully terminated, call Gomerman | Bourn & Associates without hesitation. We’ll gladly sit down with you to discuss your case and see how we can help. For a free consultation, please call 415-545-8608!

Adachi claimed that Wirowek “engaged in "dishonest conduct" and if true, that he should be "terminated." Adachi claimed in this letter, that Wirowek lied about an important accreditation by the National Association of Medical Examiners.
