About Our Small-Business Law Firm

Pagano & Kass, P.C., was founded on March 31, 1997. Since then, our San Jose firm has represented more than 100 businesses throughout California with matters pertaining to small-business law, including planning and formation, employment law and employee relations, debtor/creditor issues and dissolution. Our goal is to effectively resolve our clients' legal matters, and we achieve this by being detail-oriented, aggressive if necessary and sensitive to the costs of litigation.

Our firm's attorneys, Jim Pagano and Ian Kass, have more than 50 years of combined legal experience. They have achieved successful resolutions in literally hundreds of different circumstances and have served as lead attorneys for more than 100 trials across the country, including many state and federal courts in California and Nevada. We have also represented clients in other states as widely varied as Washington, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Texas.

Attorney Pagano is a mediator and arbitrator, allowing us to avoid costly litigation whenever possible through alternative dispute resolution. We also are prepared to assist with all phases of our client's legal needs, including appeals in every area we serve.
