A-V rated and with a proven record of success in all venues, our partners and associate attorneys have excellent academic credentials, extensive experience in all phases of the litigation process, and are well known and highly regarded throughout the legal community. Bledsoe attorneys also recognize the importance of keeping clients apprised of case status as well as providing precise legal analysis of issues affecting case outcome.

The Bledsoe firm was founded in 1947 by Leighton Bledsoe, Paul Dana and Rogers Smith. Since its founding, the firm has focused on the defense of civil litigation matters. Over the years, the firm has counseled clients and defended parties against a wide variety of claims earning Bledsoe a reputation as one of the great trial firms in San Francisco. Our attorneys are well-versed in the complex dynamics of high-profile, high stakes litigation and trial work. We are experienced in assisting clients in navigating this intricate process. Moreover, the firm’s activities have not been confined to trial level litigation.

The firm and all those who were or are its partners or associates are and have been litigators.

With this rich foundation, regardless of practice area or venue, our attorneys are able to evaluate the merit, costs and probable outcome for each matter. While always prepared to aggressively litigate any matter in trial, we also make informed decisions with regard to those matters more suited to Alternative Dispute Resolution and other pre-trial settlement options.

The Law Offices of Mallison & Martinez was founded in February 2005 with the goal of bringing the highest level of lawyering possible to workers. Our office approaches every issue, every case, every strategy, every evidentiary matter, and every decision as a chance to rethink and expand the rights of workers.

In sum, we identify the core issues early, develop a plan to resolve these issues, and follow through until we prevail.
