Primuth & Driskell, LLP

Primuth & Driskell, LLP handles legal matters for families, businesses and individuals in the communities of Pasadena, La Cañada Flintridge, South Pasadena, San Marino, Arcadia, Monrovia, and Alhambra. Primuth & Driskell, LLP was formed to combine the talents and desires of two dedicated professionals. Partner Jonathan Primuth first opened his own law office in 2006 after more than 14 years in law practice in downtown Los Angeles law firms. Partner Joshua Driskell first met Jonathan Primuth after moving to Pasadena to lead and open a new satellite office for his prior firm. After working together on multiple cases, Jon and Josh found that their styles and expertise worked together perfectly and Primuth & Driskell, LLP was formed.

Our goal is to provide superior client service. That means asking good questions, listening carefully and giving advice based on both a well-grounded understanding of the law and everyday common sense. We enjoy the challenge of boiling down the complex and sometimes confusing legal concepts and procedures into everyday English, so that the client understands the issues, the pros and cons, the risks and rewards of each course of action.
