Founded in 2002 by a handful of partners from Los Angeles and Pasadena law firms, AFRCT, LLP has grown to be one of the largest full-service law firm in the San Gabriel Valley/Pasadena (CA) area, opening an office in Seattle (WA) in 2016 that also services the state of Oregon. We are an AV rated law firm, recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a “Best Law Firm” since 2011. Our firm is committed to reflecting the rich diversity of our clients and communities in which we live and work. We believe a diverse workplace fosters creative thinking, an enhanced work environment and a superior legal product.


Our clients range from individuals and small businesses to national banks and Fortune 500 companies. We have the depth to handle large, complex matters including class actions. At the same time, we have the agility to handle smaller matters efficiently and economically. AFRCT’s founding partners have represented some of their clients for decades. Our responsiveness and dedication, without regard to short term gains, has forged long term client relationships and trust. We are proud to communicate with clients in Mandarin, Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, French and Italian.



AFRCT’s lawyers graduated from top law schools and average more than 16 years of experience. Several are nationally recognized experts in their fields. We are not staffed with junior associates facing steep learning curves and heavy billable hour requirements. Our clients work with lawyers who advocate efficient means of resolution, are capable of handling a matter from start to finish and provide superb personalized service.
