About Alhambra, California

Alhambra is a City in the County of Los Angeles, which is located in the San Gabriel Valley east of downtown Los Angeles.  Alhambra is home to more than 90,000 residents.  Alhambra covers almost eight square miles and encompasses the following zip codes: 91801, 91903, and 91804. The San Gabriel Mission was founded nearby on September 8, 1771, as part of the Spanish conquest and occupation of Alta California. In 1820 Mexico won its independence from the Spanish crown and lands once ruled by them became part of the Mexican Republic. These lands then transferred into the hands of the United States following Mexico’s defeat in the Mexican–American War. A wealthy developer, Benjamin Davis Wilson, married Ramona Yorba, daughter of Bernardo Yorba, who owned the land which would become Alhambra. With the persuasion of his daughter, Ruth, Yorba named the land after a book she was reading, Washington Irving’s Tales of the Alhambra. Alhambra was founded as a suburb of Los Angeles that remained an unincorporated area during the mid-19th century. On July 11, 1903, the City of Alhambra was incorporated. Alhambra is promoted as a “city of homes”, and many of its homes have historical significance. They include styles such as craftsman, bungalow, Spanish Mediterranean, Spanish colonial, Italian beaux-arts, and arts and crafts.

Alhambra’s main business district, at the intersection of Main and Garfield, has been a center of commerce since 1895. By the 1950s, it had taken on an upscale look and was “the” place to go in the San Gabriel Valley. While many of the classic historical buildings have been torn down over the years, the rebuilding of Main Street has led to numerous dining, retail, and entertainment establishments. Alhambra has experienced waves of new immigrants, beginning with Italians in the 1950s, Mexicans in the 1960s, and Chinese in the 1980s. As a result, a very active Chinese business district has developed on Valley Boulevard, including Chinese supermarkets, restaurants, shops, banks, realtors, and medical offices. The Valley Boulevard corridor has become a national hub for many Asian-owned bank headquarters, and there are other nationally recognized retailers in the city. The Akopyan Law Firm A.P.C. is headquartered in Burbank which is minutes away from Alhambra.  Thus, our lawyers stand ready to serve employees and employers in Alhambra with all their employment law needs.
