Mr. Blumberg has been practicing law in Solana Beach for the past 25 years. He has diverse experience in various transactional and litigation matters, concentrating primarily in the fields of business, commercial and general civil litigation. In addition, he has handled and tried cases involving dissolution of long term marriages, professional negligence, product liability, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, insurance subrogation, common carriers/transportation and fraud. Mr. Blumberg successfully handled one of the first cases in the United States involving a unique cause of toxic shock syndrome. He also was lead counsel in a groundbreaking case in California dealing with individual homeowners’ liability in condominium litigation.
In 1992, Mr. Blumberg left Los Angeles and moved to Solana Beach, California where he began his own practice. Mr. Blumberg’s professional life has been devoted to representing individuals, families and small businesses for a wide range of legal needs. Living, raising a family and establishing a law practice in North County San Diego have proven to be the right choices for Mr. Blumberg, and he remains honored and blessed to be a part of the Solana Beach community.
After working over 30 years in litigation, Mr. Blumberg has learned that not every legal dispute should be handled the same way. The primary responsibility of a legal representative is to know the client, and his or her particular needs, in order to secure positive results as efficiently and painlessly as possible. Civil conflicts may ultimately have to be tried in a court of law, but not every dispute needs to be adversarial and acrimonious. Although Mr. Blumberg will aggressively litigate and try cases when necessary, not every problem needs to be immediately thrust into the judicial process. Mr. Blumberg’s focus is on finding Innovative Legal Solutions which promotes creative advocacy for his clients to ensure the best possible results through the least disruptive process.
