Meet the ACTS Law Attorneys Selected to Rising Stars

 Aaron Lavine, Associate at ACTS Law, has been named on Rising Stars each consecutive year since 2016 and again has been recognized as top-rated civil litigation attorney. He focuses his legal practice on advocating for seriously injured individuals who are fighting large insurance companies and government entities. Aaron has also represented diverse businesses in litigation matters including clients in entertainment. In all legal matters, Aaron is known as a tireless advocate for justice and has achieved multiple seven-figure settlements on behalf of his clients.

David Bederman, Associate with ACTS Law, has been recognized by Rising Stars as a top-rated insurance coverage attorney. He concentrates much of his work on insurance bad faith, business litigation, intellectual property enforcement, catastrophic personal injury, and civil rights. From the inception of his legal career, David has maintained a focus on opposing dispositive motions that can potentially dismiss an entire case before his clients have had their day in court. Prior to joining ACTS Law, David honed his skills at a major asbestos litigation firm representing clients suffering from mesothelioma, the asbestos-related cancer.

Joseph R. Finnerty, Associate with ACTS Law, has been named a top-rated personal injury attorney by Rising Stars for the second consecutive year. His practice areas include catastrophic personal injury, toxic tort, civil rights, and wrongful death. Joseph has successfully represented clients against the interests of government entities and multi-billion-dollar companies. His legal practice is motivated by his desire to protect consumers against injustice, thereby serving the community at large. Joseph was a student-athlete at UCLA, where he obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in History. He then went on to earn his Juris Doctor degree from Loyola Law School.

Michael Harutunian, Associate with ACTS Law, has again been named a top-rated insurance coverage attorney by Rising Stars, having first received that honor in 2019. He is known for zealously fighting on behalf of clients who have suffered property damage, seeking to obtain for them the maximum compensation available. From the initial filing of a claim through litigation, Michael passionately advocates for his clients’ rights to achieve the best possible outcome. Michael’s prior practice in copyright enforcement and foreclosure defense has provided him with a broad background of valuable legal experience.
