Best Consumer Attorney!
Mr. Trueblood is truly an expert when it comes to defending against unfair Debt Collection. He is professional, honest and takes his time to answer questions and concerns. Not only was I sued in the wrong state, but service was bad also. Mr. Trueblood was able to settle out of court and have the case dismissed as well as have all attorney fees returned to me. I would highly recommend Mr. Trueblood to anyone getting sued unfairly for debt collection. He is truly an attorney who cares about the consumer!! Thank you Mr. Trueblood!!

First class Attorney
Alec (Alexander) is truly a breath of fresh air within the legal arena. In 2012 I approached Alec with a problem in regards to a vehicle repossession which I felt was unjust and unfair. I had suffered a year of harassment and stress from my car loan company, upon my first telephone call with Alec he put my mind at ease and offered genuine advice and scheduled and in person meeting. During my meeting with Alec I found him to be very professional and extremely knowledgeable in regard to the law. After my initial meeting with Alec he found that there were many other customers who had suffered at the hands of this company, my case ended up being a class action law suit which he successfully won. Alec was very responsive to all my emails and telephone calls and answered all my questions no matter how small. Overall I would say that Alec is the most trustworthy and honest attorney I have ever met, he really does fight the fight and goes the extra mile to make things happen. I have no hesitation in recommending Alec and would certainly recommend making this guy your first call for assistance. Thank you so much Alec!

great lawyer
This is a long overdue review that should have been done two months ago, but due to stress and school, I haven't been able to find the time, which is unfortunate, because Mr. Trueblood is an excellent lawyer. About a year and a half ago, I needed a lawyer ASAP because a big well known bill collector had been harassing my mother about a credit card debt that she did not owe. They had been harassing my mother for so long that it got to the point where they had tried to sue her, and she was frightened. It's really hard to find reviews on lawyers, unlike how you would find reviews on Yelp for other things, but there was three reviews on Mr. Trueblood that made me trust him. In addition, as soon as I contacted him, with his knowledge and experience, he assured us that the case would most likely not got to trial due to the lack of evidence, he filed the proper documents, and he pushed the debt collectors to prove that my mother indeed owed them, but they never found the proper evidence, and the case was abruptly dropped. I am truly grateful that I was able to find Mr. Trueblood.

“Excellent Advice from a Very Experienced Professional”
Attorney Alec Trueblood provided me with excellent advice, his knowledge of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act and Rosenthal Act are vast. Attorney Alec Trueblood was on a very short list of attorney’s I was interested in consulting with. After a comprehensive search of attorney’s profiles and backgrounds, I made an appointment for a consultation with Mr. Trueblood. I drove close to three hours to meet him. I was not disappointed. Mr. Trueblood provided me with sound advice on my legal matter. I was not rushed, and I was quite impressed with Mr. Trueblood’s : patience, understanding, and concern. I would recommend Attorney Alec Trueblood to anybody in need of legal services.

Consumate Professional
I met with Alex Trueblood personally and he reviewed my concerns. After our discussion, he presented some great options with how we could proceed. He was very informative and gave honest feedback about my case. I will contact him in the future should any further activity arise. I highly recommend.

Wonderful and refreshing attorney experience!
Alexander Trueblood called me back within a half hour after I left a desperate message for him on his website about being harrassed by a scavenger collection agency. He explained their actions and motives, he explained my rights and he put me quickly at ease. I highly recommend this kind attorney if you are being harrassed by creditors. I didn't expect such professionalism and he didn't charge me a dime. Peace of mind has no price.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Completely Unprofessional And Inconsiderate
I called on November 16th for a free consultation as was advertised on his website. I called again mid December. No response to either call. So on December 27th I leave a 1 star Google review for the lack of follow up. He responds that he didn't call back because I had a Wisconsin number. So on December 28th at approximately 9:30 am I called and he picked up and I let him know that many people from Wisconsin live in California and keep their numbers and that the professional thing to do is to call back. He asks if I called just to berate him. I said no I wanted a free consultation. He said he refused to give me a consultation because I left a 1 star review on Google. I told him that opinions can change but that it was on him to change them. He then accused me of extortion (although no money was discussed) and said $#%@ you and hung up. First off it's not my fault he made an ignorant assumption that I lived in Wisconsin so blew off two calls over a month and a half. Any decent attorney would understand why that would make someone upset and attempt to turn it around. But not Mr. Trueblood. He doubled down on his lack of professionalism with profanity before hanging up and never offering that free consultation. I would stay far away. NOTE: This review has all factual basis necessary to support the accusation. I also filed a bar complaint however they said that using profanity doesn't violate their code of conduct so denied it. But not based on it not being factual.

Consumer protection Attorney | Nov 04

"Alec Trueblood is the real thing. He fights until nobody else is left standing. If you think you've got an auto repo problem - there's hardly anyone more experienced! Plus, he's a straight shooter and you'll always know what's going on. I enthusiastically endorse this lawyer."
Consumer protection Attorney | Jul 16
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I endorse and would highly recommend this lawyer in the area of consumer protection, especially identity theft, credit reporting and debt collection harassment, because he is very effective in the cases in which we have worked together. These cases can be stressful, yet he keeps it together and soldiers on to finish. I have also noticed that he is good with communicating and responding to requests."
Lemon law Attorney | Jan 19
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I highly recommend attorney Trueblood. When it comes to knowing the California Credit Rights and debt collection law, how it works, how to use it, and other California consumer protection laws, Trueblood is tops. I've known him for probably more than a decade. His website has lots of good practical tips and info too. If you have a problem with your credit rights or a debt collector harrassing you, and his office is anywhere near you, call him. He's very, very good. And he cares about getting his clients the best result possible as quickly as possible too. I recommend him to you."
