> Few decisions are as fraught as legal decisions and good advice is vital if we are to make good decisions when the law is involved. That’s why choosing a lawyer can be so daunting. With our Annual TOP ATTORNEYS Guide we hope to help you out, and make that decision easier if you should find yourself in need. We asked local lawyers to tell us who among them they thought were the best at what they do, and we’re sharing that elite list with you. These are the best of the best, as chosen by their peers. And they should know.

RUBEN VARDANYAN

VARDANYAN LAW FIRM

Personal Injury

It’s a blessing to represent hardworking people who’ve been wronged by a bad accident. When I started my law practice, I knew I wanted to keep it boutique. We spend time with our clients—real time. That’s important because we treat each case like it’s going to court.

I became passionate about law during my undergraduate years at UCI. I came across stellar professors who were practitioners in their own right, and could walk the walk. At Loyola Law School, I was keen on transactional law. After law school, I spent time ricocheting between half a dozen or so attorneys, making appearances on their behalf and doing law and motion work. I appreciated the human connection they had with their clients. I knew then that big law was not for me.

Every day, I choose quality over quantity. We’re hit with so many ads and billboards that personal injury has ceased to be just that, “personal.” Most attorneys will play the numbers game. I choose not to. We want to create lasting changes in the lives of our clients.

My practice is built around aggressively litigating and taking cases to court. I make a commitment to each of my clients that I will not tire and I will not give up. I will outwork the insurance companies and their attorneys. With our bank of vested experts, physicians, and specialists, we work to prove up every case to capture the full extent of damages under the law.

JOSEPH A. KAUFMAN

JOSEPH KAUFMAN & ASSOCIATES, INC. Lemon Law

We are one of the leading consumer protection firms in alifornia, focusing our practice on representing consumers and small business owners who have purchased or leased defective automobiles, motorcycles, RVs, trucks, and other consumer goods. I started the firm in 2016 ater being a defense attorney for over 13 years, and we have slowly and steadily grown the firm ever since. Our goal has always been to provide consumers and small business owners with responsive and diligent legal representation for their lemon law claims, and we have been fortunate to recover more than $100 million on behalf of California consumers.

A car, pickup, or RV is a big purchase, and if yours is always in the shop, California has consumer protection statutes that protect you. Importantly, those statutes have fee shifting provisions that make it possible for our firm to handle most claims on a contingent basis at no cost to the consumer. If you think you might have a lemon, reach out to our office for a fee case evaluation.

LINDA RANDLETT KOLLAR

HOOPER, LUNDY & BOOKMAN, P.C. Health Law

I love what I do. I’m a healthcare lawyer representing behavioral health providers – especially those who treat youth. My clients, primarily nonprofits are highly regulated by all levels of government, and I advise them regarding a myriad of everyday operational issues, including administrative hearings and civil trials. They are mission-driven, serving California’s most vulnerable population, and it is my privilege to represent them zealously.

I came to this unique practice after working as a social worker in the juvenile dependency court, where I was challenged daily by the lack of mental health and out-of-home care resources for traumatized youth. Encouraged by the then Presiding Judge, Paul Boland, I applied to law school. This background was a natural segway into representing child welfare and mental health providers.

In addition to my practice, I provide pro bono work representing vulnerable minors.

Being a partner at HLB, which exclusively represents healthcare providers and suppliers nationwide, is a huge asset.

SUSAN BARILICH

I grew up in the Midwest, spent a number of years in Texas, and ended up in California by design (not by accident). I have learned and benefited from moving around and made good friends everywhere I have been. My values are traditional, my mindset is open, and I have great taste.... as long as it is affordable.

I am a trial lawyer, successful business owner, Tournament of Roses member, Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts member and former president of Commercial Real Estate Women Los Angeles. I was named in Super Lawyers 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024, and Pasadena’s Best Lawyers 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024.

Someday I hope to run for office—US House or Sente. Also on my bucket list: ski black diamonds; become a certified yoga instructor; climb/hie Mt. Whitney; train a border collie for the Crufts Agility Competition; become fluent in German; and learn how to make documentary films My favorite TV series is Parks and Recreation. Sen. Elizabeth Warren was my law school legal research and writing instructor.

My best advice: Never give up. Every day presents new possibilities and setbacks. It’s not about what you encounter in life, but how you deal with it.
