Civil Litigation Specialists
Farbstein & Blackman is a civil litigation law firm centrally located in San Mateo, California. Founded in 1978, the firm’s shareholders are recognized by their peers as preeminent lawyers, with substantial trial and arbitration expertise. Much of the firm’s work comes from referrals by other attorneys.
Central to our success is our emphasis on insightful and practical case planning. We work closely with our clients to develop a case strategy, based upon our evaluation of the case and the demands of the situation. We stress the need for a simple, compelling presentation, despite complex facts and law. We marshal the necessary investigation and expert witnesses. We are technologically savvy, utilizing the latest trial software and demonstrative evidence techniques. We rely upon our common sense, and a wealth of experience.
Because we are rooted in the needs of our clients and the community that surrounds us, we have been called upon to represent individuals and businesses alike. This work includes business and employment litigation for start up technology ventures to major, public companies. We offer a compelling alternative to the mega-firms, who often lack the interpersonal care and with whom we often do battle. We are at home in State and Federal court, including the demands of injunctive relief at the inception of an action, through appellate work if necessary.
We equally value the work done on behalf of individuals, particularly those finding themselves in a time of crisis by reason of a catastrophic injury, or wrongful death of a loved one. We have also risen to the challenge of professional liability concerns, both for plaintiffs and defendants, including malpractice actions involving lawyers, accountants, real estate professionals, home inspectors, stock brokers, insurance agents.
At Farbstein & Blackman, you are assured of direct and substantial contact with the senior attorney on the file. Our lawyers are personally committed to the optimum resolution of our clients’ legal matters, and have had a great deal of success with complex cases.
Our attorneys provide skilled representation to clients in the areas of professional liability, employment law, business litigation, personal injury litigation, estate planning services, mediation and arbitration of civil disputes.
