Tab Artis became an attorney the old-fashioned way: he read the law in the solitude of the early morning hours before work as a full-time paralegal, and late into the night after his family had gone to bed. Despite having never enrolled in law school, Mr. Artis fulfilled the requirements of the California State Bar, and did what few think or even dare to do: sit for the California Bar Exam without having attended law school. Between November 1997 and November 2007, only eight people had taken the California Bar Exam without a law degree and passed on the first try. Mr. Artis is one of those eight people.
Prior to passing the Bar, Mr. Artis worked seven years as a litigation paralegal for a boutique construction litigation firm in Pasadena, then worked as an Associate for that same firm. In April 2010, he opened his own civil litigation practice focused on representing plaintiffs in personal injury, wrongful death, landlord-tenant, partnership, business and contract disputes, construction litigation, and bankruptcy.
Mr. Artis donates his time to service in his church and other community service organizations. Having served a two-year church mission to Colombia, South America, Mr. Artis speaks fluent Spanish. In addition to being an attorney and business-owner, Mr. Artis is a singer, a musician, an actor, and a hula dancer. He and his wife love movies and traveling, are avid readers, and are the proud parents of four children and three grandchildren
