AGNEWBRUSAVICH was featured in the Daily Journal article “Sticking Close to Home”, in recognition of their 30 years of practice and serving their local community. Partners Gerald Agnew and Bruce Brusavich had the vision to keep the firm small and local while serving clients throughout California and the nation.
Due to the proximity of their families and community ties, the City of Torrance was the obvious choice to establish their business. Keeping a small firm allowed Mr. Agnew and Mr. Brusavich time to focus their energy on professional organizations and advocacy in order to further promote protecting civilian rights in serious injury lawsuits. Additionally, because of Mr. Agnew’s passion for cycling, they emerged as lawyers helping victims of bicycle accidents.
“Although Bruce and I have handled numerous bike accidents and motorcycle accidents over the years, we’re seeing an uptick,” Mr. Agnew said. “And because I’m a little closer to that community because of my own interest, we’re seeing more people come to us who need help.”
AgnewBrusavich also provides annual scholarships to local high school students. The firm celebrated its 20th annual scholarship awards banquet honoring more than 500 high school students over the years, including 22 recent graduates from this year.
“Bruce and I paid our own way through college and law school. We’ve been there where you work 50-60 hours a week and went to school full time and paid for everything yourself,” Mr. Agnew said. “These kids can cover their fees, their books, and get started.”
