Very Helpful!
My husband, a dentist of 38 years, finally decided to sell his practice. There's so much to know that we didn't know! Levi was very helpful in all things legal, but probably the biggest help was in keeping us calm throughout a very emotional, complicated process with lots of back and forth. Plus, he made himself available to chat with us--which was great. Levi drew up agreements and helped answer questions on related items (e.g. the real estate piece), while also ensuring we had staff questions answered by the right people. We had a successful sale because we had the right paperwork and a knowledgeable attorney. I highly recommend Levi!

Pacific Health law
I not only recommend Mr. Levi Barlavi who is a Health Law Attorney, but I guarantee once you have used his service you too will look no further. He responds in an extreme timely matter, he is a very knowledge, trustworthy person. There is no other attorney that will work as hard for you. Mr. Levi was selected on recommendation from a trusted friend and was some of the "Best" advice I have ever received. I'd trust him with anything, do not hesitate to call him.

Amazing health care attorney
Great experience! Levi was prompt, professional, and did an amazing job combing my employment contract and identifying points of liability. He has extensive knowledge about partnership track discussions which were so very much appreciated, and will be helping craft a corporation and ultimately the legal structure of my concierge medical practice. Love the ease of his online scheduling platform as well; having an attorney that is so easily accessible and responsive is truly invaluable.

Best legal advice I've ever received
I am an ophthalmologist opening a practice in Los Angeles, CA. I had the pleasure of working with Levi throughout the legal process of office space acquisition. From the beginning, I could tell that Levi was cut from a different cloth; his skills, passion, attention to detail, and personality was different than any attorney I've worked with in the past. Levi is VERY good at what he does! He made the entire process of finding office space and finalizing a deal seamless. I have and will continue to refer Levi to my colleagues seeking his legal expertise. Without hesitation, I recommend Levi for any of your legal needs!

Exceptional Attorney!
First and foremost I would like to say that Levi is an exceptional attorney that went above and beyond my expectations. Levi assisted me in acquiring the dental practice I have been longing to have. He guided me every step of the way from start to finish. Most of the process was unknown to me and he made it as simple as can be. Not only was he very knowledgable and helpful throughout the process but he was readily available to answer all of my questions. Lastly, and one of the things I appreciated from Levi was his ability to get things done in an extremely timely manner. I was on a time crunch per special circumstances and Levi met and beat all the deadlines we needed to reach. Levi is very professional, responsive, and accurate. Highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.

Great decision
I was lucky enough to have a colleague recommend working with Levi to help in my optometry practice purchase. The experience was positive in every way. Levi was professional, tactful, ethical, highly knowledgeable and very experienced. We had many obstacles present along the way but I always felt that I was in good hands with Levi helping me navigate unfamiliar waters in a stressful time. As a first time practice buyer I underestimated how crucial having a good attorney would be, but was lucky enough that I'd decided to work with Levi. Highly recommend him!

Amazing Healthcare Attorney
I am without doubt pleased with my services in regards to Levi and the Pacific Health Law Group. I was referred by a friend and I can definitely say it was an EXCELLENT decision. I primarily used Levi for setting up my S-corporation and contract negotiations/review upon taking a new job. He was very meticulous and prompt in going over the contract and was readily available for my calls and questions. The office are staff are extremely courteous and their communication is amazing. I was constantly getting email updates as to the status of everything. If you're looking for an excellent healthcare attorney, look no further. I will continue to use Levi's firm going forward.

The Guiding Force in our Practice Purchase
I met Levi at CDA earlier this year at a practice acquisition seminar. Right from the start, I knew he'd be a valuable resource for our practice acquisition. He went into specific details of how the process would play out and his role. He guided us the entire way even during some of the most difficult parts of the negotiations. We are so grateful for everything he did for us. I couldn't imagine going through the practice acquisition process without him.

Excellence in Dental Legal Matters
I have been in the dental management field for over 40 years and have not encountered a better attorney for dental related matters than Levi. He helped me through a very difficult Asset Sale Agreements, the formation of a Dental Services Organization, lease assignments, and contract negotiations. I have worked with dozens of attorneys in my years of experience, and Levi has been my finest experience. He is knowledgeable, professional, responsive, efficient, and cost effective. I would highly recommend him to any one need legal counsel in the dental field. Terry Olson

One of a kind
Recently bought a dental practice and Mr. Barlavi was HIGHLY recommended to me by my CPA to represent me during the acquisition. I can definitely see why. Being new to the game/process, Mr. Barlavi took me under his wings and guided me each and every step of the way, always making sure I understood everything that was going on. He always treated me with great respect, professionalism and patience. His demeanor and confidence always kept me calm during the entire process and made me feel comfortable at every turn. He was very attentive to my particular situation and always made me feel like I was his only client during the process. He always made time to take my calls and respond to my emails at anytime of the day/night. Even when he was out of the country on vacation with his family, he was still able to make my practice acquisition a priority to me and the seller. For that, I cannot thank him enough, and GREATLY appreciate every and all of his efforts. When anyone asks me how "buying a dental practice went," I have and will always start with Mr. Barlavi. With that being said, I too HIGHLY recommend Mr. Barlavi and know that all of his clients will be well taken care of!

Excellent Experience
Levi helped our practice with negotiating a lease contract. He spent a considerable time going back and forth with the management company. He was attentive and a pleasure to work with. We were able to negotiate terms that worked out well for our practice as a result and he maintained a good working relationship with the management company. Would highly recommend his law firm and will definitely work with him again in the future!

Dental Practice Acquisition
Levi was my attorney for my dental practice acquisition. He reviewed my Asset Purchase Sale agreement along with my Lease agreement and added amendments to ensure it was in my best interest. Moreover, he also drafted up a professional service agreement between myself and the existing seller as a work-back independent contractor. He made sure everything was in before all my deadlines and I was able to close escrow on time. Thanks for everything! I've already referred him two of my colleagues.

Lease and partnership negotiations
Levi was recommended to me by a personal friend that also was going through the build-out process for the new dental practice. Levi was excellent in my lease negotiations as he made the process very smooth and was very attentive to the process/issues at hand. In the midst of this process he also assisted us in a partnership agreement which was icing on the cake. He's a pleasure to work with and he's highly recommended.

Dental Practice Purchase
Levi was my lawyer to buy an existing practice. Many Lawyers refused to work with the broker of my practice. As soon as Levi stepped in the process, everyone started getting along. The whole transaction began to flow. Levi is like a friend. I've never met him in person but it feels like Ive known him forever. He is great to work with. I strongly recommend him.

Excellent attorney!
Levi was a tremendous help during my dental practice acquisition. He guided me through the entire process, was very quick to reply to any question I had and was very easy to work with in general. He works quickly, respects your timeline and is incredibly thorough with his work. He has lots of experience with dental practice transitions and knows how to protect his client when drafting and reviewing the sales agreement. I would highly recommend Levi to all my colleagues. Thanks Levi!

best dental attorney
Levi is an amazing attorney. During the process of lease negotiations and revisions, Levi went above and beyond to explain the details of the lease. He was not only easy to work with but he was very transparent during the entire process. He was always available when I needed him to answer questions. He was also very fast with looking over my lease and making the proper revisions. I was very happy I was referred to him and I highly recommend anyone that needs a dental attorney to contact him!!!

Levi is the best at what he does.
I recently purchased my first dental practice which was a pretty frightening endeavor. I had lots of anxiety, frankly I wasn't sure what I was doing or what I needed to do. I called several lawyers and after I spoke to them I still felt lost. When I finally contacts Levi it was a totally different experience. He took the time to really figure out what my needs were and made the whole process painless. I would definitely use him again and would recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

Endorse Levi
Mergers and acquisitions Attorney | Jan 22
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Although it may seem odd to endorse my competitor, Levi has earned my respect (and therefore my endorsement) as opposing counsel for dental practice transitions. Of all my competitors, Levi is the only one who consistently (1) upgrades his documents; (2) keeps his promises; (3) asks only for changes that are justified and can explain why the change is justified when asked; (4) engages in pragmatic "horse trading" to get the deal done; (5) acknowledges when he doesn't have the answer (so he asks for help); and (6) gets noticeably better at the job every time we work together. In short, Levi is a true professional, and I would recommend him to any practice transition client that I can't represent due to client conflicts or time constraints."
