About Me

Michael J. Patinelli the newest member of the Law firm of Kavesh, Minor and Otis, is a native Angeleno, who was raised in Hollywood and graduated from Loyola Marymount University in 1987 and Loyola Law School in 1991.

He has spent the majority of his legal career working with some of the most talented litigators in Los Angeles, including Thomas V. Girardi, Robert Keese, Peter Fonda and Donald Garrard.

He is now very excited to be working with the supremely talented and uniquely experienced Estate Planning Professionals at Kavesh, Minor and Otis and is looking forward to the opportunity to someday join his colleagues as a "Certified Specialist" in Estate Planning,Trusts and Probate law.

When away from the office, Michael prefers nothing more than spending time with his family and friends around a dining table engaged in the "lost art" of good conversation.
