Gregory L. Kirakosian | Lead Trial Lawyer
“If you do what you love, you never work a day in your life.”
This quote embodies Greg and his passion as an attorney. The law is more than just a profession for Greg; it’s in his blood. Growing up in a family of judges, public defenders, prosecutors and plaintiff lawyers, Greg found his calling in the courtroom. He has a deep respect for the law and firmly believes that civility, credibility, and integrity are some of the most important attributes for achieving positive outcomes. He has been recognized as a top attorney by his peers, having been named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers for the past two years.
Greg’s success as an attorney also stems from paying close attention to detail and having an overwhelming understanding of the law to be able to find multiple angles in a case to outmaneuver the opposition. He’s motivated to go above and beyond to win for his clients who have been wronged or injured by negligence or intentional conduct of others. Most importantly, Greg strives to shepherd his clients through the complex and confusing process by keeping them informed and empowered in their quest for justice.
Prior to launching Kirakosian Law, Greg earned his stripes as a trial attorney by working several years in one of the nation’s most successful Criminal and Civil Litigation firms – GERAGOS & GERAGOS. Greg worked side-by-side and handled numerous high-profile and complex cases with the world renowned trial lawyer Mark Geragos.
Prior to working at Geragos & Geragos, Greg served as a judicial intern to Hon. Soussan Bruguera at the Los Angeles Superior court, which provided a front row seat to the complex civil litigation and trial process. He also worked as a law clerk at Schwarcz Rimberg Boyd & Rader, LLP where Greg gained hands on experience with the litigation and arbitration of a complex business dispute between a land-based and an international online gaming company.
He also gained experience on the defense side of catastrophic personal injury cases and highway tort claims while working at Caltrans’ Legal Division, assisting its Chief Counsel with depositions and trial preparation. This provided Greg with a strong grasp of government immunities and understanding of what it takes to beat a government entity in court.
Greg is admitted to practice law in California and the United States District Court – Central District. He earned his Juris Doctorate from Loyola Law School of Los Angeles with a concentration in Civil Litigation and Negotiations and served as a Staff Editor on their Entertainment Law Review. He also served on ACLU’s Jails Project helping inmates receive proper medical and psychological care. He serves as the legal counsel for the Pasadena Armenian Genocide Memorial Committee for the development, construction, and maintenance of the PAGMC genocide memorial.
“Kirakosian Law was a HUGE help in my personal injury case. They have helped me recover damages and I highly recommend this firm to all. I am stress free and all thanks to this amazing group!!”

I Should Have Called Him from the Beginning
“I’m surprised to be the first to review this firm. I got into an accident and called two other attorneys who seemed arrogant and too busy to hear my claim. One of my friends who had an accident last year told me to contact Greg Kirakosian, as he was his attorney and loved him. So, I called him. He was nice and genuinely wanted to help me. He was also professional and explained things every step of the way. I should have called him from the beginning. He ended up winning more than I thought he would. If you have a problem, do yourself a favor and contact this law firm first. You will not be disappointed.”>
