Michael handles a multitude of issues, including many estate planning concerns such as Wills, Trusts, and Probates. Additionally, Michael’s background as a Realtor and licensed California Contractor benefits him when helping clients in all Real Estate issues, including listings and purchase agreements, along with Deed issues, Notes, Deed of Trust, Quiet Title, Partition, and litigation proceedings, representing owners, sellers, buyers, and brokerages.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Sidney Mendlovitz.
Mr. Mendlovitz was admitted to the California Bar on June 21, 1966, after graduating from Pacific Coast University School of Law in Long Beach. After litigating for decades as a partner at Curry, Barnes, and Mendlovitz, Mr. Mendlovitz later went on to co-found our local Lakewood law firm alongside Michael Foster in 2016.
Using his staggering 50 years of wisdom, Sidney Mendlovitz mentored Michael Foster to successfully manage the firm through unparalleled experience, a proven client-focused approach, and a friendly professional environment that only Sid could create. We will miss him dearly, and hope to carry on the legacy of Sidney Mendlovitz’s astonishing 55-year legal career.
