The Law Offices of L'tanya M. Butler is me. It is the culmination of 25 years of the sweat of my brow and the blood of my tears. If you have been harmed in a way that our legal system has a remedy for, I will get you that remedy. I fearlessly fight the good fight for what is right. Other law firms will tell you that they are the particular go-to firm in their field. That they are the ones that possess the knowledge and the experience to assist you. Don't be mislead. I have the knowledge, the experience, the drive, the determination, and the genuine desire to help you through whatever personal tragedy has occurred which has required you to seek legal counsel. Growing up on the streets of South Central Los Angeles honed my fighting skills. Matriculating through UCLA and the Yale Law School refined the natural abilities and talents developed in my home neighborhood. Knowing injustice personally makes me the perfect attorney to combat the injustice that you currently face. My credentials are impeccable. My intentions are true. My aim is deadly. If your case is winnable, I will win it. If your cause is just, I will tirelessly seek justice for you. Before you try the rest, seek the best. I will fight for you. A graduate of the Yale Law School, I have been practicing law for over 25 years, representing my clients with unmatched zeal and passion. My legal acumen is unrivaled and combined with the personal touch often missing in larger firms. If your rights have been violated in any form or fashion for which the law provides a remedy, I am the only attorney you will ever want or need. Call the law offices of L'tanya M. Butler to discuss your legal matter. You will never regret the call.

Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.

In 2019, I was appointed by the Court as minor's counsel in a case where a young girl whose aunt had become her guardian after she lost her mother. The child's biological father had been vilified to his daughter due to issues in his relationship with her mother. He was also an ex-felon. The father presented in Court in a very loud and angry fashion, having at one point to be removed or asked to leave the courtroom. Over the course of my appointment, I was able to calm the father down, conduct a fair investigation for the Court and provide a safe place for my client, the miner, to acknowledge that she loved her father and wanted to be in his custody. I was then able to change the Court's mind about the father and win approval for the termination of the guardianship and placement of the little girl into her father's custody. In another matter, I successfully defended a local t-shirt manufacturer, against a trademark dispute and then against a breach of contract claim where a t-shirt printing company claimed that it suffered over 150k in damages due to the fact that the t-shirts it had purchased for a job were not of uniform length. In my closing argument, I pointed out that the Plaintiff had specifically requested ""odd lots"" and that the boxes the t-shirts were in indicated that they were of different styles and origins. This case led to my infamous apples and potatoes closing argument where I argued that different varieties of apples and potatoes had different uses and that it was up to me to know that or to ask someone knowledgeable about fruits and vegetables instead of blindly assuming that they were interchangeable. It was a good thing that I won this case because, in order to calm my client's nerves during the jury deliberations, I bet him my firstborn child that I would win. Darn. My efforts saved this business and this family.

How did you build a successful practice?

I went to the Yale Law School as a single parent with a 9 month old infant. After graduation, 4I started my career at a major corporate firm that had a reputation for being hospitable to working mothers. After 5 years it became clear that the corporate life was not for me. So I hung out my shingle on Crenshaw Boulevard, as "the Crenshaw Law Center." My goal was to save the world. Instead, the world handed me my lunch. After about 5 years of having my lunch handed to me on the daily, I obtained employment with a private firm that contracted with the Couty of Los Angeles to represent the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in cases alleging civil rights violations. Booo! Hisss! Hisss! So after about 5 years of really great experience preparing and trying cases involving allegations of civil rights abuses, I hung my shingle out again, choosing to develop a specialty in probate litigation, having learned that most probate practioners abhor litigation. Most of my cases are referrals from colleagues.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?

Integrity and competence, consideration and respect.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?

Local knowledge is vital and indispensable in my practice. Probate is its own peculiar animal, seemingly designed so that only probate attorneys and judges can understand it. I have spent over 20 years practicing probate law. I know the system, inside and out.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?

Usually, I am able to determine what the issues are and what laws and other rules apply. I am able to advise as to whether there is a sufficient basis to initiate litigation.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?

The consultation usually last 20-30 minutes. If the interpretation of a will or trust is at issue, I would like to have a copy of the document emailed or faxed to me prior to the consultation. Otherwise, the potential client should be prepared to provide a brief summary of the events that have led up to their belief that an attorney is necessary to protect their interests.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?

I am a unicorn! I was born and raised in South Los Angeles, attended UCLA and then went on to the Ivy League. I have extensive trial experience both within and without the probate arena. In the probate area, I am essentially serving the community into which I was born, mostly lower and middle income families dealing with a unique set of issues and concerns relative to inheriting property.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Defining the problem and determining the solution. Knowing that the job was well done. I am gratified and humbled by expressions of appreciation.

What are your other interests in addition to law?

I am an enthusiastic golfer and an avid reader of anything in the sci-fi/fantasy genre.

Are you involved in your community?

Yes, I am a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. I mentor and tutor recent law school graduates and I am a mentor and resource for young and/or inexperienced attorneys in the probate area. Also, I give seminars to real estate agents and brokers who service the same community that I do, educating them on their responsibilities (and the limits of their expertise) when involved in a probate or trust sale.
