About the Long Beach Bar Association

 

 

The Long Beach Bar Association was founded by a small group of lawyers in the parlor of the Hotel Schuyler on February 3, 1917. Its mission was then, and continues to be today, to provide a welcoming, congenial, and stimulating home for attorneys, judges, and legal professionals in the City of Long Beach, our surrounding communities, and the greater Los Angeles area.

 

The members of the Long Beach Bar Association include over 400 attorneys, judges of the Los Angeles Superior Court, justices of the California Appellate Court, and other legal professionals from throughout the greater Long Beach area, including many cities in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

 

Our members represent clients in all walks of life, across many professions, businesses, activities, and geographical areas.   Our diversity and range of experience enhance our members' participation in the Association while at the same time allowing us to provide a broad range of services to the public.
