Howard Blau

About me

I am committed to providing my clients with the expert and aggressive representation they need and the full compensation they deserve.


I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California.  I have always enjoyed motorcycle riding and worked at a motorcyle shop before going to law school.  While working at the motorcycle shop I developed a first hand, in depth understanding of the technical aspects of motorcycles and the mind set of those who enjoy motorcycle riding.


I have dedicated my legal career to serving the interests of seriously injured accident victims against insurance companies and big corporations.


My firms focus and commitment is to win cases for our clients with personal hands-on lawyering.  We do the job with honesty, integrity and compassion.
