Manning & Kass Celebrates 22nd Anniversary

On April 1, 2016, the law firm of Manning & Kass, Ellrod, Ramirez, Trester LLP celebrated its 22nd anniversary with a birthday party held congruently in six offices.

The firm was founded by only sixteen attorneys, including founding partners Steven D. Manning, Dennis B. Kass, Anthony J. Ellrod, and Eugene P. Ramirez. The original sixteen walked out of another firm, Mr. Manning, firm managing partner, states, to "start a small law firm with a big dream (a dream that some onlookers thought was a giant April Fool's joke)."

Twenty two years later, Manning & Kass garners serious respect, as one of the fastest growing and widely respected law firms in California, with more than 165 attorneys in six offices in California, Arizona, and New York. Numerous Manning & Kass attorneys regularly make national headlines in tough, high-profile cases; and have been published, quoted, or profiled in important publications such as the Los Angeles Business Journal, Washington Post, Daily Journal, New York Times, and online at and others.
