Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger yesterday announced the appointment of three attorneys to the Law Revision Commission, including two from Los Angeles County.

Frank Kaplan, 58, of Calabasas, was one of the governor’s appointments. He has served as a member of the commission since 2002 and previously served as its chairman. Since 1971 Kaplan has been a partner in the firm Alslchuler, Grossman, Stein & Kaplan. He is also a securities fraud law professor at the University of Southern California.

He is registered decline-to-state.

William Weinberger, 50, of Los Angeles was also appointed by the govenor. A member of the commission since 2002 and like Kaplan, a former chairman, Weinberger specializes in business, real estate and employment litigation. Since 2004 he has been a partner in the firm Parker, Milliken, Clark, O’Hara & Samuelian. Previously he was a partner in the firm Crista & Jackson from 2002-2004, and was a partner in Selvin, Weiner & Weinberger from 1985-2002. The Democrat is also a former commissioner on the Board of Neighborhood Commisioners for the city of Los Angeles and served on the Los Angeles Charter Reform Commission.

Schwarzenegger also reappointed Edmund Regalia, 74, of Walnut Creek, a member of the commission since 2002. A partner in the firm Miller, Starr & Regalia since 1964, he specializes in real estate and business law. Regalia, a Democrat, is the editor-in-chief of California Real Estate Law. All three will need to be confirmed by the Senate.
