About William

Learn William’s areas of practice.

WE LISTEN. WE COMMUNICATE. WE PREPARE. WE FOLLOW THROUGH.

Bill is co-owner of Blasser Law with his wife Lisa and is the lead trial attorney for the firm. His practice focuses on Family Law, Child Custody, Child Support, Divorce and Separation, Alimony, Domestic Violence and Pre-nup agreements. Bill uses his passion and experience to protect his clients’ families, assets and legacy. He is a trial attorney who loves advocating in court on behalf of his clients but works to thoroughly prepare every case, so his clients are in a position to successfully resolve their disputes without the need for a trial. Bill understands that legal disputes involving family law and estates are very stressful, and is dedicated to comforting his clients with thoughtful counsel and strategies that alleviate this anxiety.

Bill earned his undergraduate degree in Economics from the University of Montana in 1997. While in law school, he received several awards from the Witkin Legal Institute for Academic Excellence. Bill earned his Juris Doctorate in 2004, graduating from law school with scholastic honors, and went on to pass California Bar Exam on his first attempt. Bill has been actively practicing law since November 2004. He practices in the California State Courts, the Federal District Courts and the California Court of Appeal.

On a Personal Note …

“I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, but have been a Southern California resident for over 16 years. While I was in law school, I met an amazing, beautiful and talented woman named Lisa. I am proud to say she is the co-owner of Blasser Law and my wife. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, exercising, and playing Chess. I use most of my leisure time, however, doing what I love most: spending time with my wife and children. I am a trial attorney, and I love to advocate on behalf of my clients inside a courtroom.

I understand, however, that court hearings and trials are expensive and emotionally strenuous for my clients. This is why I thoroughly prepare every case I accept. The evidence is in place. Arguments are well thought out. Testimony is laid out and rehearsed. This level of preparation empowers my clients to effectively negotiate and settle their disputes before trial. In the rare instances where my clients cannot resolve things informally, they are well – prepared to succeed when they present their case in court.

‘We listen. We communicate. We Prepare. We follow through.’ This is not just a tagline we use for advertising like other law firms. This is what we do at Blasser Law. I look forward to meeting you personally very soon.

Absolutely the best!!!
I was referred to William Blasser by another attorney. Bill took my call, asked me some questions about my situation, and said he could definitely help me out. I hired Bill and from the very beginning, I had the utmost confidence in his abilities. Bill proved himself to be very knowledgeable and detail oriented. He was always there to answer my questions and concerns. He explained to me what my rights were, as well as various legal concepts and definitions, and helped to navigate me through the process to achieve the best results possible. My divorce was a very emotional process. Bill was very empathetic and helped me to stay focused all the way through. He provided timely updates on how my case was progressing and always set realistic expectations. All paperwork was handled without any problems and everything was filed in a timely manner with the Court. Ultimately, I was very pleased with the outcome of my divorce. Rest assured, you can do no better than William Blasser!

Hope
I had already finalized a divorce with my ex, but made a terrible personal choice that jeopardized the custody established in that divorce. Everything I read on the internet and a prior lawyer I interviewed painted a pretty grim outcome for my circumstances. Some good friends referred me to Mr. Blasser. In our initial meeting he heard me out, he did not feel my circumstances were as bad as they were being made out to be. He provided me with hope and confidence, at the same time being realistic with possible outcomes. He provided guidance and reassurance throughout the judicial process, not only providing the services of a family lawyer but also much needed support during an extremely difficult period in my life. Mr. Blasser is also well known and respected within the court house community and has established working relationships with many of the other family lawyers in the area. If you are reading this and are in need of a family lawyer, Mr. Blasser is a good lawyer to have in your corner.

Awesome Attorney
Mr. Blasser is an awesome attorney and an awesome person! I consulted with Mr. Blasser and saw his wife has emphasis on her degrees that would be beneficial for my difficult divorce. After the hire, my case ended up being shifted out-of-state. Mr. Blasser gave me a full refund and gladly shared files with my new attorney and his team. His courtesy saved me a lot of money and time I did not have. The Blasser team is professional and a pleasure to work with.

intelligent and strategic child custody attorney
William Blasser was able to get me more than what I asked for. I know it sounds like a gimmick but in my case I was projected to get 50-50 physical custody with my child but I was able to get much more. I just want to speak out to a lot of fathers out there thinking the system is rigged towards favoring the mother, but It’s not, you have rights & we have to start masking the sacrifice for our children.You can do it just don’t give in to that idea. William Blasser was able to help me see that. As well as give me much more than what I was expecting. In short he was very busy but he manages his time very well. While being able to feel as if you’re being actually being listen to about whatever subject or topic. Day or night I was able to contact him whenever. I strongly suggest his services because he was able to do what I could no.

Highly Recommend Wllliam!
I’m going through a very difficult custody case. I was previously unrepresented and was having a rough time finding anyone who would listen to my story and actually HELP. William put me at ease with the very first phone call and after that I knew I had to retain him. Not only is he professional, experienced, and knowledgeable, he also makes you feel like you are not alone through the court battles. I can’t recommend him enough! Don’t hesitate and give him a call you won’t regret it!

Bill was very helpful from the very first call we had....
I contacted Bill regarding a conservatorship for my 89 year old Mother. Bill understands exactly what the process was about and the family dynamics that may arise. Bill was able to give me great advice on how to proceed while being honest and straightforward as to the steps to take. As with any court case, the outcome is unpredictable and Bill was able to lay out the pros and cons of what the process would entail. I look forward to working with Bill

Great custody lawyer
Just finalized a custody agreement for my children with Bill’s help. He was organized, available, and always professional from the beginning of the process to the end. Having never gone through anything like this before, Bill explained each step of the process and thoroughly answers all my questions. Through the stressful times, he always listened and reassured me that our strategy would lead to best possible outcome for my children, and low and behold, it did. My kids are still young, so if anything comes up between now and when they turn 18, I will definitely reach out to Bill again. A great lawyer and great person.
