Nicole C. Pearson

Personal Background

The one thing that has always mattered most to Nicole is people: how they feel, what they need, and how she can help them. As a young girl, this meant organizing donation drives, initiating recycling programs, co-founding the non-profit organizations, mentoring inner-city teens, and coaching up and coming young advocates. 

In law school, Nicole discovered her love of the law. While studying the Constitution, she lovingly became “The Girl Who Cried About the First Amendment” (because dictators have a right to nonviolent, irreproachable, non-profane free speech, too!) and channeled her passion into studying law that supported these basic principles and freedoms.

Nicole’s appreciation for this country and its founding principles came from her Abuelita, who escaped fascism and ultimately immigrated from Argentina to the United States after losing it all in order to build a better, safer life for her children, here.

Professional Career

After graduating U.C.L.A. with honors, Nicole graduated from Loyola Law School as a scholar and Moot Court champion and began representing businesses and employers throughout the world. Quickly, however, she realized that advocating for voiceless employees was her actual calling. Therefore, using her experience defending employers, she harnessed her desire to advocate for those in need and launched the Law Office of Nicole C. Pearson in 2015.

In 2021, Nicole pivoted her law office to rise up against the coordinated assault by politicians, special interest groups, and private entities emboldened by the government on our – and our children’s – individual liberties. Since that time, her firm and advocacy group – FACTS LAW TRUTH JUSTICE – has been at the forefront of the Fight to defend basic principles of limited government, checks and balances, and personal autonomy necessary for a free and healthy society.

Nicole’s career has been marked by a passion for facts, law, truth and justice, a zeal for tackling – and winning – legal challenges, and an insatiable drive to protect the vulnerable. Her broad legal experience encompasses employment discrimination (race, religion, pregnancy, disability, marital status, leave), harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination; civil rights violations (Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, Unruh); and Constitutional issues. She has personally taken these claims through every stage of litigation, and practices before state and federal courts, including the Central District of California.

Rita Barnett-Rose

Personal & Professional Bio

Rita Barnett-Rose joined FLTJ as partner and co-counsel on the school vaccine mandate cases, and also currently serves as legal director for Children’s Health Defense, California Chapter.

Prior to joining FLTJ and CHD-CA, Rita was a Professor at Chapman University’s Dale E. Fowler School of Law, where she taught courses in Legal Analysis, Research & Writing, Legal Skills for International Students, and Food Law & Policy. She received her JD from the University of Texas, where she graduated with honors, and her B.A. in English from Barnard College of Columbia University, where she graduated cum laude. Prior to her teaching career, Rita was an associate with Latham & Watkins in both their Los Angeles and Orange County offices, working on a variety of litigation and transactional projects. While at the University of Texas School of Law, Rita was an extern for Justice Greg Abbott of the Supreme Court of Texas – now Governor of Texas.

As a scholar, Rita’s interests in clean food, water, and safer alternative treatments for children with ADHD led her to delve into the complex issue of corporate malfeasance and the regulatory capture of agencies such as the CDC, FDA, and EPA. Her published law review articles touch on issues such as the health harms of compulsory fluoridation programs, the unnecessary medicating of children allegedly diagnosed with “ADHD,” and the harms to communities and children on the islands of Hawaii caused by Big Ag’s growing of genetically modified crops. Her longstanding interests in and advocacy for a safer, cleaner, and healthier world for children naturally led her to this current battle.

Rita has always been a fighter for the underdog. Her pro-bono work has included work for Orangewood Children’s Home and Second Harvest Food Bank. She has also been an independent legal advocate for homeless adolescents. In March of 2020, Rita joined Children’s Health Defense as a volunteer attorney and has been advocating for the rights of children and their families ever since. When school vaccine mandates arrived in California, Rita joined forces with Nicole Pearson and Jessica Barsotti to litigate and push back against these illegal and unethical mandates and to fight for the rights of California children and their parents to make their own individual medical choices without governmental coercion.
