Five Valensi Rose attorneys were recognized by their peers during 2018 for their high level of professional expertise.

The attorneys received “Super Lawyer” or “Rising Star” designations from Super Lawyers Magazine, meaning they were ranked among top private practice attorneys in evaluations from other attorneys. 

Named as “Super Lawyers” were:

  • Managing Partner and Tax and Entertainment attorney Michael R. Morris, who has been named a Super Lawyer in the area of Tax in Los Angeles every year since 2006.
  • Michael Agran, whose practice focuses on tax and estate planning, trust and probate administration, who has been designated a Super Lawyer in Estate Planning and Probate in Los Angeles every year since 2010;
  • Kayla Horacek, a member of our Family Law Group, who has been recognized as a Super Lawyer in Family Law in Los Angeles every year since 2013; and
  • Former Senior Partner Philip S. Magaram, who retired in December of 2018, for whom this was the 14th year in a row he was named a Super Lawyer in Trust & Estates.

Nitasha Khanna, an attorney in the Firm’s Family Law Group, was named a Southern California “Super Lawyers Rising Star,” a recognition bestowed on the top 2.5% of attorneys who are under age 40 or who have been in practice for less than 10 years. This was the fifth consecutive year Ms. Khanna was awarded this distinction.
