Leo McNamara, Esq.

*Leo F. McNamara of counsel through July 9, 2013.
*Leo F. McNamara has passed away on July 9, 2013

Leo F. McNamara, Esq. passed away on July 8th, 2013. He was 84 years old when he passed away due to a sudden infection/illness while on vacation. The California State Bar requires our offices to notify and disclose his passing to all clients and potential customers of this law office. Further, that despite his passing this law office continues to hold on to and maintain it practice with the fundamental purpose unchanged which is to to help all in need. Leo F McNamara, Esq. continues to on as we continue to use his name along with my own at the Law Offices of McNamara & McNamara. My father has passed away and clearly he is no longer practicing law.

As some of you already know, Leo F. McNamara was born September 1928 in Lowell, Massachusetts. He was survived by his wife of over 53 years, and his six children and many grandchildren. He was a Veteran of WWI with the U.S. Cost Guard. He joined the Santa Monica Police Department, and he was a Sergeant before leaving SMPD to practice law. One of his first court appointments was to represent a person charged with a crime. The accused was a person whom my dad had arrested as a police officer many times in the past.


When the Judge inquired of the accused if he was comfortable with Leo, the new attorney, being appointed to represent him, the ex police officer whom arrested him in the past? The potential client said, "I am good with that your honor, Leo was always nice to me and very fair, thank you!" Over the next 42 years Leo F. McNamara continued in this field of law and represented his clients well and also helped those less fortunate.

My fathers' passion for golf was unsurpassed. He continued playing throughout his life. He began playing at 12 years old, and continued until a couple of days prior to his passing. He even got his last hole-in-one a week or so before he passed. He was a member, and past President of the Men's club at Breamar Country Club. He was proud of the fact that he achieved "19 Holes-in- One" in his lifetime. The perfect number for where my father is now.

My father was in, or around the Van Nuys and San Fernando courts, and the office, on a daily basis until his passing. He was my father, my business partner, my mentor, and just one of the best people I have ever known in my life. He is missed very much, not a day goes by without thinking about him. I know also many other attorneys, prosecutors, Judges, clerks, and other staff in both Van Nuys and San Fernando courts miss him as well. I am proud of the fact that as I run into people my father is remembered, loved, and missed by many.
