Born and raised in Southern California, Matthew Krupnick has a history of helping people, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual preference or subject matter. Mr. Krupnick has established himself as a person, and now an attorney, who cares for the people he is able to help, even if it is at the cost of his own benefit. As a child and teenager, Mr. Krupnick engrossed himself in Martial Arts, achieving his Second Degree Black Belt in Tang Soo Do at the young age of 15 years old. After years of continuous Martial Arts training in various styles, including Muay Thai, Mixed Martial Arts, boxing, Kung Fu, Aikido and more, and working as a Martial Arts Instructor teaching adults and children at various world-renowned Martial Arts Dojos, Mr. Krupnick moved from his home town, Westlake Village, California, to the Los Angeles area where he continues to live and work today.
Mr. Krupnick has taken the skills and knowledge he learned through his rigorous Martial Arts training and transformed them into unique and powerful skills as an award winning litigator. Mr. Krupnick’s track record is often astonishing to his peers due to his relatively young age and appearance. However, his litigation and legal training were as intense, focused and driven as were his Martial Arts training. So Mr. Krupnick approaches each of his clients’ legal issues or disputes with the same concepts of control, respect, confidence, and fearlessness; and when forced or needed to fight for his clients, he has learned to fight with only one option, to PREVAIL. Prevailing on behalf of his clients, which means obtaining the best possible outcome for each client depending on the specific circumstances and needs relating to each case or issue.
Nowadays, Mr. Krupnick’s “fights” only take place in the courtroom, not in a ring or dojo. However, much like with his opponents in Martial Arts, Mr. Krupnick maintains a high level of honor, dignity and respect with the others involved in the legal dispute, and especially with his firm’s clients. Having said that, when fighting for clients, Mr. Krupnick has a clear, no-holds-barred approach to keep the pressure on the opposition, fight aggressively, skillfully and with one clear goal: to acoomplish the best for each client while working within the ethics instilled in Mr. Krupnick by his partner, mentor and mother Vivian, and of course those imposed by the laws of California and those learned through a lifetime of training with the world’s best Martial Artists, and now Litigators. Mr. Krupnick has and continues to not only handle cases within his firm alone, but also with other amazing litigators, those that he looks up to and respects not only for their accomplishments and huge jury verdict results, for example, but for their compassion for the clients, dedication to the furtherance of the amazing legal profession, and their ability to work with Mr. Krupnick and his firm on those cases that the client is best served by having two great firms working on their case (which, of course, does not increase the legal fees received by the attorneys in any way and instead gives the clients two great firms for the price of one). Similarly, Mr. Krupnick is often asked by other attorneys to take over or assist in other attorney’s cases, which are generally those that require litigation and/or trial work that the other attorneys or referring parties feel Mr. Krupnick is the most appropriate attorney to help them. Regardless how a case is received or prosecuted, Mr. Krupnick takes each case for each client very seriously, and fights each one as thought it were his ownly case, and will not back down, no matter who the other side is or what reputation or resources or reputation they might have.
Have faith in Mr. Krupnick, follow his counsel, and he will work so hard to get you what you want that you likely will not EVER want someone else to fight your case for you no matter what the case may be. If the testimonials don’t help show the overwhelming satisfaction and gratefulness of his clients, then perhaps an in-person meeting with him will help show you that he means business, is sincere, and truly cares about each case he agrees to take on. He will instantly let you know you have come to the right law firm for your particular legal needs, and will not tell you that you have a great case just to make a buck off of you. You will get honest and insightful information, regardless of whether you retain the Krupnick Law Firm or not. As a natural fighter for any underdog, any case or client represented by the Krupnick Law Firm will quickly realize that they are not only in good hands, hands that they can truly and implicitly trust, but also that they are with a firm that can and will do everything possible to get amazing results both in the settlement and outcome of your case, but also in the way the firm treats you throughout the process and beyond its conclusion.
Mr. Krupnick obtained the highly sought after Bachelor’s Degree in Business with an emphasis and an option to specialize in Business Law (where Mr. Krupnick obtained an “A” and usually held the highest grade in each class in every single business or other law class taken during undergraduate studies) at California State University, Northridge (“CSUN”). Some accomplishments that Mr. Krupnick achieved at CSUN included getting the highest grade in most business law or other legal classes he attended while pursuing his undergraduate degree at CSUN (such as a basic criminal legal class, business law, and others). In addition, Mr. Krupnick was the president of the Business Law and Legal Issues group while a student at CSUN and worked to promote legal education on a practical level even at the undergraduate level.
Mr. Krupnick continued his education at prestigious Pepperdine University School of Law, in Malibu, California where he took part in the world-renowned Alternative Dispute Resolution Program and earned his Juris Doctorate in 2004. At the young age of 26, Mr. Krupnick passed the California State Bar Exam on his first attempt and then continued his career as a litigator and quickly established himself as a well-respected and honorable attorney within the legal community.
Prior to opening his own law firm, Mr. Krupnick spent over 5 years working tirelessly as one of two lawyers in-house at a tremendously busy and successful litigation law firm. Mr. Krupnick was forced to learn the world of litigation on a fast and incredibly intense track based on the busy, successful litigation law firm and his moral obligation to do great work for ALL of the firm’s clients. Mr. Krupnick worked tirelessly and skillfully and gained tremendous experience, working with and against some of the world’s best attorneys, judges, mediators, arbitrators and clients. After paying his dues and absorbing every drop of knowledge from every source he could for about 5 years, he made the decision to leave the firm and to fulfill his dream. At the young age of 30 years old, Mr. Krupnick opened his own law firm where he took all of the knowledge, skills, tactics and strong code of moral ethics and successful strategies combined with aggressive, succuss-driven visions that he had acquired and developed, and put it towards the firm he owns and operates with his mother, Vivian Krupnick, who is not only his inspiration as a person and an attorney, but the person who helped instill his core belief that attorneys serve an incredibly important purpose, which is to fight, and fight hard, for those who need help. Almost as though it had been destined to be, this award winning mother and son litigation team brought Vivian out of her semi-retirement after having worked hard and with an unparalleled compassion for her clients in her own, solo practitioner general practice law firm where she successfully practiced in her referral based law firm for about 25 years as a diverse litigator who had come from small beginnings and became a succesful attorney against all odds. Matthew’s decision to open the firm motivated Vivian to get back into practicing and to bring her incredible wisdom, experience, class, charisma, and legal mind that can rival the smartest of lawyers, and help her son build what has become one of California’s premier Civil Litigation Law Firms. Ironically, Vivian had been pregnant with Matthew when she was in law school, and perhaps the two were destined to join forces to bring a new, refreshing type of legal practice to an industry that has suffered in reputation. Together, they strive every day to instill confidence, trust, faith and complete satisfaction with each client, and share a goal of creating the greatest law firm in the world based on success, and more importantly, on helping those who need it while ensuring all clients are comfortable, informed, confident and more than pleased throughout the entire process. Read more about Vivian on her bio page.
Prior to opening his firm, Mr. Krupnick not only worked and accomplished the work that should have taken four attorneys, but did so with the help of great mentors, including his mother and now partner, Vivian. This tremendous experience is certainly part of the reason that Mr. Krupnick has become a well-respected litigator in a relatively short time, and continues to prevail against his adversaries regardless of their firm’s size, reputation, unlimited financial resources, or anything else.
Mr. Krupnick’s career as an attorney has encompassed a wide range of litigation successes involving serious personal injury matters, malpractice, employment litigation, civil rights matters, family law, contracts, and more.
As managing partner and co-owner of KRUPNICK & KRUPNICK, A Professional Law Corporation, Mr. Krupnick proudly represents a diverse clientele from various different communities with clients from all walks of life throughout California and other states.
Mr. Krupnick has litigated thousands of cases throughout California and has consistently advocated not only for the rights of his clients but also for the public’s right to be free from the abuses of the government and powerful private institutions. Mr. Krupnick also works with his clients to develop their understanding of viable alternatives to litigation, including settlement, mediation, arbitration and more. Mr. Krupnick has not only participated in hundreds of Alternative Dispute Resolution proceedings with excellent results, but has successfully mediated cases as a top mediator at C.A.M.P. Mediation Services (a non-profit organization started by perhaps the best mediator in the world, Jeffrey Krivis, that provides mediation services and mediators to Courts in California).
In addition, Mr. Krupnick has continuously stayed involved with and is constantly offering and in fact donated his time to a wide range of communty acitivities and charitable and law-related organizations, including, but not limited to: Consumers Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (“C.A.A.L.A.”), the American Bar Association, including subdivisions such as the Young Lawyer’s Division, the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered Lawyers Association (including on a National level, for which Mr. Krupnick received the 2011 award for the groups “best and brightest litigators under 40 years old”, which only one other person from Los Angeles received, and was written about in several news articles and online outlets – See Online Version of News Article from Metro News by clicking HERE), Lambda Legal, California Employment Lawyers Association (both as a member and as a mediator), the Footprinters, and the Los Angeles County Bar Association. Further, Mr. Krupnick regularly employs and mentors law students and aspiring, experienced and ambitious paralegals to teach and prepare them for issues relating to real world litigation and the practice of law. Mr. Krupnick loves teaching what he has learned, both in informal settings and in formal teaching situations. For all of these accomplishments and more, Mr. Krupnick has been selected THREE YEARS IN A ROW as a “Rising Star” in the popular legal magazine “Super Lawyers” in both 2009, 2010 and now 2011 and as one of the “Top Young Lawyer in Southern California” in the Los Angeles Magazine for 2009, 2010 AND 2011 as well. Mr. Krupnick dontated his time and drove to Thousand Oaks, California, to help teach teenagers how to debate like lawyers and ultimately taught them the skills necessary and conducted a mock trial for these ambitious students. A great article was written regarding this program by a great reporter in one of the biggest news outlets in Ventura County, and can be found at the following link: September 30, 2011 Article written in Ventura County Star by Robyn Flans
