An Outstanding Lawyer
Paul Barulich represented me through one of the most complex, high-stakes probate situations in the history of San Mateo County, and in the process became my trusted advisor and advocate. The litigation was resolved successfully due to Paul's excellent guidance, and he continued to offer strategic input afterwards to the great benefit of myself and my family. I highly recommend him and his firm. Paul's deep knowledge of the law and workings of the local court system, along with his sharp strategic guidance, creative thinking and consistently thoughtful response to my many questions along the way were invaluable to me. He treated me with the respect of an esteemed colleague while guiding me wisely past my occasionally impetuous tendencies or naive suggestions. He was adept at keeping things calm and steady in the potentially charged emotional situations that can come up in litigation. Paul and his team were confident, assertive and bold on my behalf, but never overly aggressive. They followed my requests and concerns closely. Their counsel was based in reason and balance, and always with the highest professionalism, integrity and respectful treatment of all involved. They never lost sight of the higher, long term goals we were striving to achieve in planning for the estate and trust. Paul brings the true meaning of "advocate" to the term. More than just representing me, he and his staff had my and my family's best interests at heart at every turn, and in the process earned my deepest gratitude.

highly competent and he knows it
was referred to this firm and met with him and another attorney...paul is very intelligent and knows what he's doing but also arrogant and condescending and didn't feel comfortable with him. on the other hand, if you want a shark on your side, he's the man. he doesn't come cheap though...$565/hr! yikes...
