Benjamin Blakeman graduated from UCLA School of Law and has been a member of the California Bar since 1974. He was also an American Arbitration Association arbitrator from 1985 to 2008, a certified mediator from 1997 to 2008, a financial advisor from 1999 to 2008, and a life insurance agent since 1999. I have acted as a compliance officer for five years at two different life insurance/securities agencies and has been a member of the Los Angeles Estate Counselors Forum since 2000. Additionally, he is one of a very small number of litigators representing consumers who has actually worked in the life insurance industry selling life insurance and annuities. This experience has prepared him for just about any issue relating to life insurance, annuities or securities litigation matters.
When litigation is necessary, our goal is to reach a favorable resolution as economically as possible. As a lawyer, he is a strong advocate of early mediation and avoidance of litigation wherever possible. Many defendants will be open to discussing settlement to avoid expensive litigation costs if presented at the outset with a well-prepared and formulated set of facts, analysis and credible demands. Depending on the case, we offer various fee structures. In the majority of cases, we work completely on contingency and will not collect any attorneys' fees unless we are able to obtain a recovery for our clients.
Blakeman Law is located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles on Wilshire Boulevard, with easy access to the 101, 110, 10, 5 and 60 freeways. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Paypal.
