Smart Lawyer!
I didn't know Atty Blumberg until his fellow lawyer(that I found on-line) recommended him to me. After initial consultation, I was impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and result driven personally. No wonder fellow lawyers recommend him. During this consultation, he properly guide me the proper way to handle this stressful stuff. I will definitely hire him when time comes. I already told my friends how wonderful experience I had with him. Again, Thank you Sir!

Felony DUI on a bicycle
In June of 2019 I was involved in an accident on my bicycle. A Coronado PD officer arrested me on the charge of a felony DUI. Thanks to Mr. Blumberg I did not lose my driver’s license, the charge was dismissed by the District Attorney, and the arrest record was recently (July, 2022) sealed. This outcome is entirely due to Attorney at Law Blumberg’s efforts. I could have been a felon if it were not for him. Sincerely thank you to Mr. Blumberg and Staff.

Best Lawyer Ever
First I'd like to thank Mr. Blumberg for going above & beyond for me. If your still trying to decide whether or not to hire him, just go for it. Isaac fought for me as if I was his own family. He was always brutally honest & I genuinely felt as if he was my friend. I got into a really bad DUI & GBI case & while I was out on bail, I caught another DUI case. & Mr. Blumberg was able to get me only 6 months of work furlough. Had I went for a public defender or any other lawyer. I'm pretty sure I'd be going to prison for at least a year & a half. Mr. Blumberg is truly a blessing & will fight for you like no one else. If your in a messed up situation like I was, & in need of a really good lawyer to take you out of it then look no further, Mr. Blumberg will take care of you. The best lawyer ever, hands down.

2 Cases Expunged!
Isaac has been working for me for many years. I can say he represented me better than I could have ever imagined. Isaac put my needs and concerns first, and I was treated as a friend rather than a client. Isaac fought hard for me. When my case did not go well the first time, he promised to represent me again at no charge. Isaac did not give up until my cases were dropped, and he was able to drop both of them! He went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure an excellent outcome for a very affordable price. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney.

DUI Expungement
Isaac is knowledgeable and as efficient as they come. He assisted me with an expungement of a past DUI offense that was harming my ability to grow in my career and handled everything professionally and beyond my expectations. As a fellow lawyer, I appreciated the attention to detail and excellent service and would highly recommend to others with similar needs.

Felony Expungement
All I can say is Isaac is a winner! He's sharp, knows the system like no other. I was stuck with a bad record for years and failed to clean it with other attorneys. Isaac came highly referred from another attorney friend of mine. He told me if Isaac can't do it no one can. He's the og of expungement. My family and I are so happy and relieved with his services. His pricing is perfect and his assistant Darlene is phenomenal! The whole process was very smooth and communication was on point. They really have there service tuned. I'll always refer Isaac. He's the man!

Honest Attorney with Integrity
My teenage son was arrested in December and I had no clue what to do or how to help him. I found Isaac the same day of his arrest and though it was late evening he made time to meet with me that night. I knew after our first meeting that Isaac was the attorney for me. Not only was he full of knowledge but also genuinely cared. He wanted the best representation for my son possible and explained his expertise was in Adult and not Juvenile Court and recommended we bring in a close colleague of his who is one of the best Juvenile attorney's in San Diego. I highly respect him for his honesty and willingness to share his retainer to give my son the best chance possible in fighting the allegations. Because of this I basically landed two fantastic attorneys for the price of one. The end result was after five long months the dynamic duo managed to negotiate a plea deal with the DA's office to drop 17 of the 19 felony counts against my son leaving only 2. He is now out of Juvenile Hall on probation for a year. Once he successfully completes probation the DA's office will withdraw the last serious charge leaving the lessor charge which will be sealed. Due to Isaac's help I am able to have my son back and heading off to college next year. I feel very blessed to have met and retained Isaac that fateful day. I would highly recommend Isaac for anyone who needs a great defense attorney that is honest and has integrity!

criminal threats, out of probation violation
Criminal Defense Attorney Isaac Blumberg has practiced law in the San Diego area for a significant time and has handled thousands of cases including mine. Blumberg Know's how the county’s court system works, so he gives you the best legal representation available. For example, I had a tough case with two years suspended sentence and propensity of more years added to my sentence. When we met, he said, I know what is going on, after two calendars court days and two district attorney and two probation officers, He got me out and got me to smoke weed on probation. He Embarrassed them, that's five professionals vs. Isaac Blumberg alone he's sharp, quick and won't waste your time, good advice and built for tough.

Fantastic Lawyer
No judgement, prefessional, smart and definitely a fantastic lawyer. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a criminal defense attorney. You want him on your side. Thank you for all you did for me and for my situation. I truly appreciate you and Darlene (his legal assistant).

He helped me get my life back!
Isaac helped get my life back. He helped me get 2 misdemeanors and 2 felonies over 3 cases expunged. He fought for me when probation sent a special representative to try and prevent the expungement. Because of him I can now get a better job, get into law school and get my life back together after 7 years of being in the system. He even offered to help me fill out job applications if I was having questions about disclosing my past. Hopefully I will never need this type of service again, but if I do Isaac will be my first call. I can't thank him enough.

Isaac Is The Man!
Our son was facing four- to six-years in prison for narcotics distribution. He was also looking at three+ years of probation. Isaac was able to negotiate a one-year sentence with only one-year probation. Isaac was very responsive to our requests for information, as well as extremely knowledgeable and professional. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Isaac again should the need arise.

Isaac blumberg review
Completely satisfied with everything mr. Blumberg has done for me. Responsive, positive, helpful. Affordable and most impost about delivered results in a timely fashion. Couldn't ask for more. Would definetly recommend Isaac to anyone in need

Would hire again...
Upon recommendation from a friend we hired Isaac to represent our daughter in a felony DUI re-arrest after breaking rules of her probation. She didn't get off scott free but at least she didn't go to jail for 12 years which is what we were faced with. He didn't make any promises and always leaned to the more pessimistic side so when something good happened we were all smiles. Our daughter is not a "bad person" and I believe he knows this. Would definitely hire him again if he would take the case!

He saved me and my businessess
I was charged with a DUI . There was also an accident involved. I was advised by a third party that , " if my son was in this kind of trouble, I would refer him to only one man, Isaac Blumberg. " I took his advise. Attorney Blumberg fought like a tiger. The bottom line : he saved me. I don't know how he did it , but I shall be forever grateful. If you need a real lawyer , your first choice should Isaac Blumberg !!

"Miracle Lawyer"
About two weeks ago, I got charged with a felony for domestic violence. I was in a big mess and I didn't know what to do or who to go to for help. Luckily, a close friend of mine recommended Isaac Blumberg to me and I contacted him for information about my case. Isaac was very responsive and he showed a lot of interest in my case. I can tell from the first phone call that I had with him that he really wanted to help me and get me out of the trouble I was in. At this point, I was so stressed out and Isaac assured me that everything would work out. He works great with people and keeps his clients well informed. The same day I contacted Isaac he created a miracle that I will never forget and he was able to contact the district attorney's office and dismiss my case. When he called me and told me this information, I was overwhelmed with happiness and a load of stress was taken off my shoulders. Isaac is a very professional lawyer and he knows what he is doing. He never stopped emailing me asking when was the best time to contact me. He gets things done and he gets them done fast. If anyone is ever in any criminal trouble, Isaac Blumberg is the lawyer to call. He is very knowledgeable and is willing to do anything in his power to help you. Thanks to Isaac, my record is now clean without any charges. I strongly recommend Isaac to everyone because he literally helped me get my life back and that is something you can't repay.

Success and Results
I don't give businesses 5 stars if they aren't top notch, but the reality is that Isaac is the best that I have encountered. I typically don't like attorneys, but they are necessary in such a litigious society. I have referred numerous friends and family to Isaac and he defended them vigorously. When people are in need of a defense attorney, they are generally in a very precarious position. The reality is that it's very hard to find someone that you can trust, that is knowledgable and that actually cares about the outcome of your case. The truth is, that Isaac has a very difficult job, and he eats, sleeps and breaths his clients needs. Isaac goes above and beyond because he believes that everyone has the right to representation and a fair chance at their defense. If you are in dire straights and in need of honest, upstanding, professional representation, Isaac is your best line of defense.

Look no further..
If you are being charged in a criminal lawsuit in San Diego, you really should really look no further than Mr Blumberg. Isaac helped me get out of some major charges, and avoid jailtime. I though for sure I would be seeing at least 90 days in jail, but I had no idea the work ethic and due diligence that Isaac would put in. He was referred to me by a respected friend who he had also successfully defended, and I gave him a shot. Its seriously about twice the effort you will find out there in any lawyer fighting for your case, and the results prove it. Dont waste your time trying to find criminal defense attorneys any longer, Isaac's got you 110%, go with him!

San Diego family
Our family was recently faced with a visit from Child Protective Services of California (CPS) based on a call they received from a neighbor. It was devastating news for our family especially since we are not experts on the law nor our full legal rights. Thankfully we found Isaac and he took us through the process step by step and was even present during the home visit with the CPS. It was a scary situation for us and having him by our side took all the fear away and we got through it all quickly and efficiently. The allegations were unfounded and the case was swiftly closed. Hiring Isaac was the best decision we could have made. His knowledge and professionalism is exceptional. We highly recommend him as he is very passionate about helping people know and exercise their rights.
