Wilshire Law Firm’s Founding President & Managing Attorney Bobby Saadian recently attended Southern California’s premier international trade event, the 2017 Select LA Investment Summit, where he was a guest of LA Mayor Eric Garcetti. Located at the World Trade Center in Downtown Los Angeles, the annual summit seeks to pair international investors with local Los Angeles initiatives, as well as spread international awareness for local social initiatives.
After Mayor Garcetti addressed the summit with a keynote speech, he met with Saadian to discuss ways they and other influential LA residents can further enrich the lives of local low-income residents and homeless populations. This is a pressing issue for our storied city, as the Los Angeles homeless population continues to trend in the wrong direction (currently it’s at 60,000, according to AP – that’s up 23% since 2014). Saadian, like Garcetti, is a lifelong Angelino, and is deeply concerned with this negative trend.
During their brief meeting, Saadian also brought to the Mayor’s attention the good work that the Los Angeles Trial Lawyers’ Charities (LATLC) is doing. Saadian, a LATLC Board Member, enjoys the opportunity to give back by frequently donating to charities, mentoring young adults about setting life goals, and helping children gain access to education. “The children are our future,” Saadian likes to say when asked about helping the children of his clients.
It’s no wonder Saadian and Garcetti get along so well. Mayor Garcetti has been a champion for Los Angeles’ underprivileged youth and homeless populations since his first trip to Skid Row, when he was just 14. These charitable notions of giving back to the community ring true tenfold here at Wilshire Law Firm, where Saadian leads a team of talented attorneys and staff members who fight every day from sun up till sun down for our community’s most vulnerable.
Wilshire Law Firm specializes in representing individuals who have fallen victim to catastrophic accidents, environmental contaminations, dangerous pharmaceuticals, defective product flaws, employee rights breaches or workplace equality violations.
