Winnetka, California

Winnetka is one of the larger neighborhoods in the City of Los Angeles.  It is situated in west San Fernando Valley and is home to more than 50,000 Angelenos.  It covers approximately five square miles, and encompasses the 91306 zip code. From its early days as a farming community to its modern-day status as a bustling residential area, Winnetka has always been an important part of the fabric of Los Angeles. “Winnetka,” means “beautiful land” in Native American language. As Los Angeles grew throughout the early 20th century, so did Winnetka. In the 1920s, developers began buying up farmland and building homes to accommodate the influx of people moving to Southern California. The population boomed during World War II when defense workers flooded into Los Angeles to work in aircraft factories. By the 1950s, Winnetka had become a suburban paradise with tree-lined streets and spacious single-family homes. The area continued to grow throughout the latter half of the century, attracting families looking for affordable housing within commuting distance of downtown Los Angeles. The Akopyan Law Firm A.P.C. has an office in the City of Los Angeles which is minutes away from Winnetka.  Thus, the Akopyan Law Firm, A.P.C. stands ready to serve employees and employers in the Winnetka area.
