Our History

Our firm was founded in 1996, but our true starting point was 1985 when Bill and Dwayne were young lawyers at Latham & Watkins being mentored by Al Rodriguez, a leading nonprofit and CA state and local tax lawyer. Eventually Bill moved overseas to Seoul and Dwayne to Palo Alto, but the three friends stayed in touch through the use of dial up modems, AOL and Compuserve. With Bill over the International Date Line, we had a number of humorous communication mix-ups since those rudimentary email systems had yet to discover Greenwich Mean Time! We opened up shop in the 777 S. Figueroa building, where we still are over twenty years later. Reynolds, as another big law firm refugee from Bingham McCutchen, joined the firm in 2005 and brought a sophisticated wealth and philanthropic planning practice that continues to be one of our core areas.
