Super Lawyers have named Lee Kanon Alpert and Gary L. Barr as two of the top attorneys in Southern California for 2014. No more than 5 percent of lawyers in California receive this honor.
Each year, a research team at Super Lawyers undertakes an independent, statewide survey of lawyers, compiles peer reviews and makes good-standing and disciplinary checks of thousands of attorneys. Only attorneys receiving the highest marks qualify as a Super Lawyer.
Alpert has more than 40 years of legal experience with primary practice areas in business and corporate law, administrative and government relations, arbitration and mediation, cable franchising negotiations and commercial, construction and real estate transactional law. He is currently chair of the Providence Regional Ministry Board overseeing four hospitals and one private high school and is chair of Genesis L.A. Economic Development Corp. He previously served as the president of the Board of Commissioners for the Los Angeles City Department of Water and Power. He was the recipient the Stanley M. Lintz Community Service Award from the San Fernando Valley Bar Association where Alpert also served as president.
Barr has 34 years of legal experience. His practice focuses on all forms of civil litigation including financial services, manufactured housing, foreclosures, real estate, creditors’ rights in bankruptcy and landlord-tenant. Barr is the vice-chair of the California State Bar’s Business Law Section’s Consumer Financial Services Committee and is current chair of the board of directors of the California Manufactured Housing Institute. He is a past president of the San Fernando Valley Bar Association. In 2010, he received a Los Angeles Board of Supervisors commendation for dedicated service to the affairs of the community.
