About IMW

IMW has served the Los Angeles area since 1943 when it was first organized by retired Superior Court Judge, Earl C. Broady, Sr. The firm became Ivie and McNeill in 1980 after Judge Charles R. Scarlett and Judge Robert L. Roberson, Jr. received their judicial appointments. Thereafter, the firm name was changed to Ivie, McNeill & Wyatt in 1991 and became Ivie McNeill Wyatt Purcell & Diggs in 2019. IMW is a certified minority business enterprise.

Clients of Ivie McNeill Wyatt Purcell & Diggs enjoy the benefits of our “hands on” approach with each file. Each matter is supervised by a partner with the assistance of an assigned associate, law clerk and/or paralegal. Our attorneys work in multiple practice areas and frequently consult with each other to ensure our clients get the answers they need. Above all, we listen to our clients’ requests carefully and determine the best course of action to reach their desired outcome.

IMW attorneys are dedicated to ensuring diversity in the legal pipeline. IMW attorneys have created and/or organized various diversity and inclusion events. Our attorneys are also active members of numerous legal associations dedicated to promoting diversity in the law. We place value in mentoring and encourage an environment of individual enterprise and collective growth. Above all, we believe in giving back to our community and forging a path for those who historically have not been represented in law.
