About Me

My name is David Blain and I am a civil litigation attorney in Southern California. My area of expertise is in product liability cases and business litigation. I also represent clients dealing with insurance disputes, business formation and unlawful detainers.  


 


My primary objective when representing a client is to efficiently and ethically resolve their dispute while maintaining or restoring their trust in the justice system and in attorneys.
