Gregory A. Zbylut

Greg was voted a southern California Super Lawyer for 2020, 2019 and 2018, and a Rising Star for five years before that. He has nearly fifteen years of experience as a tax and business attorney, and is one of the fewer than 400 attorneys in California to have passed the specialization exam and met the rigorous requirements to become a Certified Tax Specialist. Prior to law school, Greg worked as a CPA and financial analyst.

Greg, who holds both a JD and an MBA from Loyola University in Chicago, has worked for and with clients ranging from individuals to Fortune 500 companies. Greg is currently serving his second term on the Beverly Hills Bar Association Board of Governors, and has chaired the Beverly Hills Bar and Los Angeles County Bar (LACBA) Association’s Taxation Sections, the Corporate and Pass-through Subcommittee of the State Bar of California (now the California Lawyer’s Association) and the LACBA State and Local Tax Subcommittee.  He has also chaired the Illinois State Bar Association’s Federal Taxation Section.

When he’s not working, Greg enjoys spending time with his two and four-legged family members, golfing and volunteering with the Pasadena International Film Festival.
