I was a young physician just starting my career and didn't have a lot of money for Mr. Blum to earn by representing me. In spite of this, I always felt that I was just as important to him as his cases that earned him hundreds of times more than he earned from me. In order to save me money and time, he urged me to write down all of my concerns and fax them to him, allowing him to read them and call me back and answer them with fewer billable hours than if I had called and asked him each question one at a time. He urged me to use a mediator to keep my costs lower but didn't hesitate to successfully play the pit bull role when my ex started doing things like cutting me off his health insurance benefits without telling me- the end result was that after a 5 minute call between Lorin and my ex's attorney, my ex husband called me to apologize and immediately restored the pre-dissolution status quo. Mr Blum's professionalism and clear concise presentation of my rights coupled with his presentation of the cost-benefit balance between compromise and taking a firm stand helped me to find my own strength in this process. Due in large part to his wise counsel, I was able to proceed through a divorce without either surrendering everything to my ex husband or spending exorbitant amounts on attorney fees. I always knew he was there to review everything, but he helped me to use his time and expertise in the most cost efficient manner possible.
I cannot find enough words to express my gratitude for his expertise and his ethics.

Lorin Blum did a superb job of representing me in my dissolution. Lorin understands that the goal is to bring the process to conclusion sooner rather than later. He understands how to negotiate realistic settlements and prefers to do so where possible, but is highly capable of litigating if the other side is unreasonable. Faced with false accusations of theft, Lorin skillfully presented evidence of my innocence to the Court, effectively discrediting my ex-wife's CPA. The result was extremely favorable and led to a settlement and an end to the process. Lorin has excellent experienced partners who also know their way around the courtroom. As an attorney myself, I know that a good lawyer must master the facts as well as the law and know how to use them to get the other side to reach an acceptable settlement. A settlement is always desirable because the client knows the result, but if a settlement is not immediately available, it is good to have a lawyer who knows his way around the courtroom.

In 2005,my then wife, served me with divorce papers.I was devistated.She wanted to take everything,including my child.I did not know what to do.A very good friend recommended Lorin to me.From our first meeting,he put my mind at ease.Lorin made me feel like I was family.
Thanks to Lorin, I got through my divorce and received the majority custody of my daughter.
Thank you for my great new life Lorin.
