One of the youngest top minds in civil law and most sought-after for his successes in many civil litigations, Atty. Evan Granowitz has certainly proved Super Lawyers magazine right in putting his name in the Rising Stars list. Only the topmost 2.5% of successful and brilliant lawyers get to the list as nominated and voted by their peers. And Granowitz has been on the list in Southern California for two years in a row – 2009 and 2010. For someone who just graduated from the Boalt Hall Law School of the University of California in 2004, this is no mean feat. Seven years into the practice and he has already carved an enviable reputation, enough to merit him an Associate position in the prestigious Wolf Group law firm in LA.
With a specialty in civil law that has already garnered for him several awards while still in law school, Atty. Evan Granowitz clarifies what civil law is to dispel any misconception among his clients. Rooted on the nation’s civil code, civil law involves upholding the rights of people and organizations in a range of disputes that could occur in the following areas:
- Tort, a breach of civil duty resulting in harm to the other party, includes damages sustained from auto accidents, libel and slander, medical malpractice, product liability, and similar disputes.
- Contracts, a legally enforceable agreement between parties can include rentals, business deals, partnerships, loans, purchases, insurances, marriage and relational agreements and similar deals.
- Family, a sub-category of contracts where relationship agreements are involved, whether human, implied or explicit. Child custody issues are also handled in this area.
- Properties, under property law, includes all forms of real property ownership
In any of these areas, violations or breaches and disputes arise that make civil lawyers busy on either the plaintiff or defendant side. Atty. Evan Granowitz has shown his mettle in counseling or litigating on either side that has endeared him among his clients, enough to spread his reputation around to keep him and his Wolf Group busy without the need for personal advertisements common among young and upstart lawyers. And whether in the office or at home, Granowitz makes himself available and could also be reached through the Orange County Bar Association office where he has active membership.
