...our pledge to you is to deliver practical, cost-effective solutions...

Firm Background

The partners of Lamb & Kawakami LLP met over twenty-five years ago as young attorneys at the Los Angeles office of Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue, at the time the world’s second largest law firm.


Subsequently, Kevin J. Lamb and Thomas T. Kawakami founded Lamb & Kawakami LLP based on their desire to create a full-service boutique law firm capable of delivering large law firm representation at substantially reduced overall fees compared to the large firms. Patrick L. Rendon has since joined the firm to lead its construction, environmental, and litigation practice and was instrumental in qualifying our firm as a member of the California Minority Counsel Program. Most importantly, seasoned experienced lawyers perform the actual work on client matters. Practically speaking, this translates to substantial savings in both time and money.


When you entrust us with your legal matters, our pledge to you is to deliver practical, cost-effective solutions beneficial to you on all fronts.

...we have a team-approach with our clients based on mutual respect and trust...
