About Us

Fell, Marking, Abkin, Montgomery, Granet & Raney, LLP

Since its founding in 1977, our firm has steadily grown into one of the most esteemed and well known full-service law firms in Santa Barbara, with many AV Preeminent-rated* lawyers and several certified legal specialists. Our attorneys are adept at handling complex legal needs in each of our special areas of practice. By collaborating with one another, we ensure that our clients receive the best legal representation.
While many of our clients are in Santa Barbara, we represent individuals and businesses all over California, across the country and internationally. Our clients come to our firm for counsel in corporate and business transactions, civil litigation, estate planning, trusts and probate, family law, business litigation, real estate, land use, employment and labor law, and related areas.  Many of our attorneys are skilled trial lawyers, but we strive to resolve disputes through negotiation, arbitration and mediation, when possible.
We are proud to serve our community here in Santa Barbara.  Our founding partners have been with the firm almost 40 years and are still actively practicing.  Most of our attorneys have raised their families here and many grew up here and are dedicated to serving our friends and clients in the community. This dedication also serves a purpose in other ways. We enjoy supporting local charities, serving a wide variety of philanthropic interests. Additionally, we serve on numerous community boards in an effort to further support and enhance our community.
