Brett Shainfeld

About me

A Partner with Shainfeld & Anvar,
PC, Brett became an attorney to make a difference for his clients and
provide them with creative and cutting edge solutions to their
problems.  As a founder of Shainfeld & Anvar, Brett’s philosophy
consists of providing his clients with clear explanations and
forward‑thinking options to their cases in addition to personal
attention to detail.


Brett began his professional education
at the University of California, Davis in 1996.   While at UC Davis,
Brett was a 4-year member and captain of the NCAA Division 1 wrestling
team, as well as member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity.  In 2000,
Brett graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in both Communications and
International Relations, and was nominated an “Outstanding Senior for
the Class of 2000.”


Following his graduation from UC Davis,
Brett spent the next three years involved in sales/management and
business development both for small businesses as well as one of the
largest wineries in the world.  During this time, Brett sharpened his
real world business skills, which he continues to implement today when
providing his clients with creative, innovative and unique solutions to
their problems.


Brett graduated with a Juris Doctor from
Loyola Law School, Los Angeles in 2006 where he gained the legal
knowledge to augment his real-world business experience. In addition to
obtaining his degree from Loyola Law School, Brett became a California
Certified Mediator, which has provided him with the skills, training
and knowledge to resolve his clients’ cases with innovative and out
-of-the-box solutions.


Following law school, Brett  spent the
next few years gaining practical legal experience by providing legal
representation to both plaintiffs and corporate defendants.  During this
training, Brett represented multi-million dollar companies, including
The Irvine Company, LA Fitness, Carl’s Jr. and Zurich Insurance


Brett’s goal of helping others and
putting their needs before his own is of no surprise to those who know
him. Brett is an active and supportive member of his community,
including being on the board of a non‑profit organization which
provides food and clothing to those in need.  Brett has learned to lead
by example from his parents who immigrated to America from South Africa
with him and his brother when Brett was 9 years old.


Brett is accredited by the California
State Bar and all of the U.S. District Courts of California.  He is a
member of the Consumer Attorney’s Association of Los Angeles (CAALA),
American Bar Association (ABA), Orange County Bar Association (OCBA),
and the Los Angeles County Bar Association (LACBA).
