ABOUT US

Esensten Law is a family-run boutique law firm that prides itself on creativity, tenacity, and focus on the individual needs of our clients. We welcome the challenge of finding the best solution for every matter.  We will not settle for anything less.  With more than 85 years of combined practice in state and federal courts across the United States, our team of attorneys possesses vast experience representing clients in all civil litigation matters, from the relatively straightforward to the complex.  We have developed and maintained long-term relationships with business clients spanning decades.  Our diverse practice areas include business litigation, class actions, personal injury, mass torts, entertainment litigation, employment litigation, and business formation and transactions.    
 
     We are proud of our record of obtaining hundreds of favorable judgments and settlements for our clients, and have successfully represented individuals and business entities in multi- million dollar lawsuits.  We represent business entities of all sizes, from sole proprietorships to international corporations, in the prosecution and defense of countless business and litigation matters.  We also handle our  business clients’ corporate transactional needs, including business formation, business administration, and reviewing and drafting all types of contracts and agreements. In addition, we have an experienced personal injury team at Esensten Law; we have obtained six-figure and seven-figure settlements for personal injuries and wrongful death arising from automobile accidents, defective products and other events.
 
    Our class action and mass tort practice has produced significant settlements and victories for consumers and employees, including judgments in excess of $100 million.  Our diligence and innovation in handling large complex litigation cases have resulted in reported appellate decisions, including Garrido v. Air Liquide Industrial U.S. LP (2015) 241 Cal. App. 4th 833, that have changed the landscape of class actions under state consumer protection laws as well as RICO actions.  
 
     Our attorneys have been recognized as some of the most prestigious trial attorneys in the country.  Because of the quality of their work, Robert Esensten, Randi Geffner and Jordan Esensten have been perennially recognized as Super Lawyers and Rising Stars by Los Angeles Magazine and Top Trial Lawyers.
