About me

I specialize in representing consumers (only) against repossessors, debt collectors, banks, finance companies, and car dealerships.  I have 25 years of experience as a California consumer lawyer, and am well-known by the consumer and defense bars.  Some of the typical matters I handle include repossessions, auto dealer fraud, unfair debt collection harassment, and unfair credit reporting.

  • Robert Harlan Stempler

    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.

  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    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.
