Wagenseller Law Firm: Serving the Community

The retailer Kiehl’s has a mission statement which reads: “A worthwhile firm must have a purpose for its existence. Not only the everyday work-a-day purpose to earn a just profit, but beyond that, to improve in some way the quality of the community to which it is committed. Each firm–as should each person–contributes to those around it; and by dint of its day-to-day efforts, the message it thereby imparts is a revelation of the quality standard at which its life’s work is conducted.”

Wagenseller Law Firm believes that we can improve the quality of our community through superior real estate litigation and real estate law services. By helping our clients succeed, we are helping our community. We also believe in contributing to the non-profit organizations in our community that are committed to improving the lives of everyone around us. We have focused our charitable work on the following organizations.


Laine Wagenseller is on the Board of Managers of the Stuart M. Ketchum Downtown branch of the YMCA. In addition Wagenseller Law Firm hosts an annual cocktail party for real estate professionals throughout Los Angeles to raise money for our annual Send A Kid to Camp Campaign. As a part of the YMCA’s focus on youth development, the YMCA sends kids from the neighborhoods surrounding downtown to camp in Big Bear each year. Many of these inner-city children cannot afford a week in camp and have never been outside of the city. The goal of Wagenseller Law Firm’s Send A Kid To Camp Campaign is to make sure that every child can spend a week in summer camp. If you would like to get involved in our campaign, please let us know.

Boy Scouts Of America—Los Angeles Area Council

Laine Wagenseller was a Boy Scout in Troop 223 in Pacific Palisades, where he earned the rank of Eagle Scout. The mission of the Los Angeles Council of the Boy Scouts is to promote a quality program advocating citizenship, character, physical fitness and a duty to God. It is the Boy Scout’s vision to transform today’s youth into tomorrow’s best leaders.

In 2009 Laine assembled a team to participate in the Los Angeles Area Council’s first “Golf With A Shotgun” event. The sporting clays tournament raised $30,000 for Scouting. In 2010 Laine sponsored a table of real estate professionals at the 2010 Business Leaders Breakfast.

ThinSpace - Africa

Laine has traveled to Kaihura, a small village in western Uganda, for the last nine years. Working with Ugandan leaders, Laine and his fellow volunteers bring in speakers who talk to the kids about success, business skills, time management, responsibility, faith and the story of their own lives. The team has teachers present their skills—shoe repair, cooking, crafts making, and farming – among others. Every year, alumni come back to join the two-week mission program to share their progress and learn new skills. Laine supports the orphanage throughout the year, and partners with the non-profit organization ThinSpace Africa to help donors support the vocational school and orphanage.
