James Felton's Summary

My practice is focused on helping businesses and individuals resolve issues and disputes. That may mean representing them in state, federal or bankruptcy court; counseling them through shareholder, partner and guarantor disputes and breach of contract matters; putting together structured settlements, or managing asset recovery issues. When money requirements in business or personal affairs force people to consider litigation alternatives or even bankruptcy, I can help.

I am the managing partner of Greenberg & Bass LLP. This leadership role has allowed me to experience first-hand the challenges and opportunities facing our business clients. I have acquired a unique perspective on what it means to be successful in business today, and strive to bring this approach to every aspect of my practice. One of the nicest perks of my job is getting a “thumbs up” from my staff and colleagues – as a result of their nomination, I was named the 2012 Attorney Boss of the Year by the San Fernando Valley Bar Association.

I am passionate about community service: I’ve been involved with the Jewish Federation for many years – and my kids: three amazing sons who are involved in all things sports-related.
