“Within each of these areas there is a common theme; specifically, that our clients suffered harm due to another person’s negligent, reckless, or wrongful conduct. We strive for the maximum settlement a case can bring; however, if a settlement offer is not reasonable or acceptable, we will be prepared to proceed to trial. Our total commitment to each of our clients, and to our community, is part of a legacy we are extremely proud to uphold.”

Gavin P. Kassel, a graduate of University of West Los Angeles School of Law, joined our firm in November 2012. Gavin Kassel is the youngest member of the multi-generational Kassel/Katz family of local attorneys. He brings tremendous legal talent, knowledge of the law, and a deep compassion for clients’ needs to our firm
Like his father, Gavin Kassel strives to assist those who have been personally injured due to the fault of another or have been taken advantage of—particularly in the area of employment discrimination, workplace retaliation, and wrongful termination.
Family patriarch Philip Kassel said he never pressured his children to pursue careers in the legal profession, but is certainly happy with his sons’ and his grandson’s career path choices. “I feel good about it because I’d like to think the law will benefit from Gavin because he’s so interested in people and wants to help people,” Philip Kassel said. “He’s not interested in getting some corporate job and earning a bunch of money. He wants to help people, and I feel good about the fact these kids want to be productive and contribute to society. They’re in a profession that can make a difference.” -Philip Kassel (SB Sun 12-01-2012)
