The History of Bloomfield Law Group, Inc.

History


After graduating cum laude from Harvard Law School, Neil Jon Bloomfield started his legal career in New York working as an associate for Willkie, Farr and Gallagher.  For over three years he handled civil, real estate, corporate and securities litigation.  During this period he also wrote legislation for new artists housing zoning in the SOHO area of Manhatten, and represented various community actions groups in Harlem and other disadvantaged areas of Manhatten.  Neil handled a number of multinational real estate funds and also industrial accident cases.  Mr. Bloomfield came to California and in 1974 started this firm as the Law Offices of Neil John Bloomfield, and later formed the Bloomfield Law Group, Inc., a professional corporation. .

For over 30 years the firm and its predecessor firm have delivered high quality service and have an impressive track record in complex litigation and trial matters.  Over the decades the firm has developed expertise and experience in civil law, tax law (Mr. Bloomfield is admitted to the United State tax court), real estate development and disputes, bankruptcy (all aspects, including chapters 7, 11, and 13 and adversary proceedings within bankruptcies), Corporate, LLC and Partnership Law, and both Plaintiff and Defendant representation for consumers and for contractors in regard to construction projects and construction defects.

As Mr. Bloomfield's practice grew, he took on associates who brought additional expertise and areas of practice to achieve Mr. Bloomfield's goal of providing most of the legal services people and businesses in Marin County need.  Among the former attorneys that Mr. Bloomfield hired and trained are several judges and numerous well-respected local attorneys who went on to form their own firms.  With a staff of three lawyers, several paralegals and an administrative assistant, we are here to meet your needs. The firm handles all aspects of family law, civil litigation, probate, bankruptcy, and estate planning. We have a number of  active cases where banks have been enjoined from foreclosing and where loan modifications have been achieved in a litigation context.

The firm's historical role was in corporate and commercial litigation, transaction advice, and plaintiffs' trial work. A number of projects involved complex and multi-party state and federal litigation, real estate law, and general civil litigation. The personal injury practice has evolved to include serious personal injury cases (wrongful death, auto accidents, industrial accidents and slip and fall); legal malpractice, and large injury medical malpractice cases. The corporate practice is active in new ventures and in general corporate and LLC law. The firm is active in debt work out cases and situations primarily for borrowers in real estate secured transactions
