Their main goal is to take the worry off of the tenant’s mind, by allowing them to concentrate on other than lease issues which are tedious and too far above the mind of most tenants and even most attorneys, and to secure the best possible lease for their clients. Mr. Eichberg and his paralegal staff are skilled, with years of experience representing large to small corporations and LLC(s), as well as individuals. Mr. Eichberg is also a partner in the highly respected Mediation firm, Southern California Mediation Partners in Westlake Village, California.

He next joined forces with Stephen M. Feldman and became the Law Offices of Eichberg and Feldman. Seventeen years later, Mr. Eichberg became a named partner in the firm of Goldfarb, Sturman, Averbach and Eichberg. In 1995 he formed his own firm. He prides himself on his ability to quickly review any lease, add or delete clauses that favor his client, and negotiates the lease to its conclusion. In over 3,500 leases, only a handful have failed to be executed. Mr. Eichberg has three mantras he lives by for his clients. First, he is passionate about bringing calm to people during what can be a difficult, frightening and chaotic time in a new business owner’s life; second, if you don’t ask, you don’t get, and third nothing ventured, nothing gained.

A highly respected voice in the area of his expertise, Mr. Eichberg is a member of the American Bar Association, The California Bar Association and the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.  He attended California State University at Los Angeles, for his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science next attended Southwestern University School of Law where he received his Juris Doctoral Degree.

He has earned coveted memberships in the American Law Society Top Lawyers, the Association of Distinguished Counsel, Lawyers of Distinction, Marquis Who’s Who, Top Tier Lawyers, and Continental Who’s Who.

This recognition is in dedication to his 100-year-old mother Shirley Greenes and is in loving memory of his father Norman and his brother Rob, who co-founded Coming out Day and The Advocate Experience. Much of Mr. Eichberg’s passionate support and fundraising for LoVE and other organizations and tireless work to contribute to the nonprofit world is his upbringing in a family that always focused on the less fortunate.
