About Me

Practicing law since 1999, Ophir J. Bitton founded Bitton and Associates in 2007 to provide individuals and small and mid-size businesses with personalized client service and quality legal representation. Ophir graduated from Southwestern University School of Law in the top 10 percent of his class. While a law student, Ophir distinguished himself in the Honors Interscholastic Trial Advocacy Program. Among several honors he received, Ophir earned the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates Excellence in Preparation for Trial Practice Award. Prior to law school, Ophir earned his MBA from the Pepperdine University School of Business, where he graduated sixth in his class. With his educational background in law and business, Ophir was recruited out of law school by the globally renowned professional service firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP  ("PwC"). Ophir spent three years at PwC providing legal consulting to Fortune 500 companies relating to business planning, State sales and use taxation, and other business and corporate matters. After leaving PwC Ophir joined an aggressive litigation firm in Century City where his practice entailed all aspects of employment litigation and litigation prevention. Prior to opening Bitton & Associates Ophir worked for a sophisticated boutique litigation firm dealing with business, employment, legal malpractice, personal injury, real estate, collections, and general civil litigation issues.
