Paul Damien Kramer (“PDK” to many) is an established Orange County business and corporate lawyer with over 30 years of commercial, industrial, real property and construction experience. In that time, PDK has actively guarded the interests of his business clients through intelligent, concise, and cost-effective counsel and, where necessary, through litigation and other formal venues.
Now, a self-described “reformed litigator,” Paul no longer maintains an active litigation practice, but serves instead as outside general counsel to his business clients, negotiating, crafting, troubleshooting and safeguarding all manner of business-related events, albeit with the practiced eye of a former trial lawyer. Paul’s practice is tailored specifically to the every day transactional and troubleshooting needs of most small to mid-sized business owners and managers, as well as to those individual entrepreneurs and investors with need for a “go to” business lawyer.
Paul values long-term client relationships, fostered through years of practical and timely counsel, with an eye toward insulating each client from litigation and related events. His clients are comprised of individuals, corporations, limited liability companies, and partnerships. Several of these clients have commented on their experiences with the Firm on the testimonials page.
Mr. Kramer is a member of the Business, Corporate and Real Estate Sections of the California Bar Association and Orange County Bar Association, and a former board member of the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association.
Paul is a graduate of the University of California, San Diego (B.A., Psychology, 1985) and Loyola Law School, Los Angeles (J.D., 1990). A lifelong beach and water sports enthusiast, Paul remains a resident of Laguna Beach with his wife, two sons, and more recently, German Shepard “Olive.”
