Skip Keesal, Jr., Partner, Keesal, Young & Logan

There are few people in Long Beach who have ever had breakfast with the President and dinner with the Queen of England. Only one can do both and then squeeze in hosting a luncheon fundraiser for the Long Beach Boys and Girls Club with a Four-Star General as the guest speaker.

Skip Keesal, Jr., founder of the city’s largest law firm, Keesal, Young & Logan, is no stranger to the world’s most powerful people. Skip is always bringing them to Long Beach to tour the city and speak to a sold out crowd to benefit a local non-profit on the top floor of his law firm offices. The facility rental log of Skip’s full-service kitchen and reception room atop his downtown law firm is meticulous cared for by full time staff. Name a Long Beach non-profit and it’s probably in that book.

Skip’s influence reaches far beyond the courtroom into the lives of everyday Long Beach residents. Whether it is his role on the Board of Governor’s at Cal State Long Beach, the Board of Trustees for the Boys and Girls Club or his involvement with the Long Beach Police Foundation. He is also an influential businessman with major development assets in Downtown Long Beach. His newest project is a multi-tower development.

Skip is the heartbeat of Long Beach – his fingers are firmly on the pulse of the city and nothing big happens unless Skip is behind it. Major business developments to maintaining Long Beach’s most influential law firm seem to always come second to giving back to benefit our community.
