“An organization’s ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly, is the ultimate competitive advantage.”

Kalyan D. Pokala earned his undergraduate degree from Carnegie Mellon University and his J.D. from the University of St. Thomas.

Mr. Pokala has experience in the areas of business formations, contracts, general civil litigation, business dissolutions, and trademarks and copyrights. Mr. Pokala also advises clients with immigration issues, which constitute a small but consistent portion of his practice.

Mr. Pokala has been serving the needs of local San Diego residents and businesses as a sole practitioner for over six years. While the bulk of Mr. Pokala’s practice continues to be business formations and representation, his career was built upon passion for art and a desire to help independent artists and writers protect their interests. Working with artists and writers to form the most appropriate business entity to suit their needs has led to the firm’s more business-oriented practice. Since 2008, his practice has built a strong reputation for offering competent, fair-priced legal advice while providing a personal touch that isn’t expected with a firm specializing in business formations and business representation.

Mr. Pokala is admitted to practice before all state courts in California and the United States District Court (Southern District of California).

In addition to the practice of law, Kalyan Pokala enjoys surfing, ice hockey, and stand-up comedy. He has lived in San Diego since 1992.
