About Me

Alan Fenster is a veteran trial attorney. Many years of dedicated service to clients throughout Southern California has earned him wide recognition as a hard charging, energetic, and sharp witted defender. He is well respected by judges and equally feared by prosecutors, who know there won't be any easy and convenient deals with Mr. Fenster.  Despite his impressive presence in the courtroom, his skills don't end there. Many defense attorneys practice in Los Angeles, but very few have such a rare combination of skills both in and out of the courtroom.
