Barak Lurie is the Managing Partner of the Firm. Barak practices primarily in litigation, with an emphasis on business and real estate matters. He also has substantial experience in bankruptcy work, representing trustees and creditors. Barak's clients include a wide variety of businesses and high net work individuals defending or pursuing claims for breach of contract, fraud, and commercial disputes. Barak also has substantial experience in high-profile commercial evictions. During his legal career, Barak worked for Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps, as well as Christensen, Miller (now Glaser, Weil), top-notch large law firms. He also worked at the highly respected firm of Danning, Gill, Diamond & Kollitz. Barak also served as General Counsel to Donald Sterling, real estate mogul and owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. There, Barak took on major legal disputes for Mr. Sterling, and became a principal attorney in the successful appeal of Sterling v. Taylor, reversing the lower court's decision. In addition, in 2000, Barak founded and also became CEO of his own company, RightPro, which developed a unique internet-based marketing tool for professionals. As a result of this experience, Barak became intimately familiar with the needs and motivations of entrepreneurs -- having been one himself. After spending 15 years honing his legal skills in these firms, Barak started his own practice in 2004. Barak's experience maximizes the odds that a case will be successfully settled. "It's rare that settlement is not the best result for a client," Lurie says. "That way, the client minimizes the risk of a huge loss at trial, and can also have control of the outcome." However, when trial has proven necessary, Barak has prevailed in court time and again, earning verdicts in the millions of dollars. His focus is always on the best and most cost-effective result for the client. Education:U.C.L.A. School of Law, J.D., 1989U.C.L.A.

Personal PhilosophyLife's too short to waste ...I encourage clients to focus on what matters most.I take your case-situation very seriously.....and, I also know that clients sometimes get caught up in an emotional spiral of revenge and defensiveness and forget the bottom line.....resolving the matter so they can move on with what matters most in their lives.As a lawyer, counselor, provider, family man, grandpa and outdoor adventurist, I've witnessed much pain and suffering caused by lack of focus and failure to remember the personal core values that drive our lives on this earth.....especially during trying times.I work hard and play hard. I live my core values everyday (integrity, creativity, freedom, humor and compassion) and as a result have developed compassion for and understanding of my clients and the range of other personalities involved in complex and simple legal situations.I look for win-win resolutions. This means doing the best I can to match available resources with innovative solutions. Most of my cases-situations are resolved out of court, saving all parties time, emotional turmoil and money. Business transactions are dealt with timely and cost effectively, focusing on getting the best deal possible for my clients.I pride myself on being efficient and effective, keeping up-to-date on technologies that will help me run my practice and building positive relationships with those I do business with (community, opposing counsel, judges, etc.). I answer my own phones, I get back to you, I care about your legal matter.
