The exception to the rule is called Howard Blau! My 20 year old son was hit on his motorcycle, which totaled his bike and send him to the hospital in an ambulance. I was out of state, frantically combing through AVVO. Attorney Howard Blau stood out to me. And though Mr. Blau didn’t know me from Adam, he empathized with my motherly desperation, even drove to the hospital where he met my son for the first time and brought him home like a caring dad. Howard immediately dove into the case. All along, he kept reaching out to my son to brief him on the progress and to insure he regained his health. And as an experienced motorcycle rider himself, he gave my son a few good talks. Due to Howard’s great success in the case, my son soon got monetary compensation that he never dreamed of, AND a beautiful new bike! Fast forward a couple of years: My son and I were traveling on a large boulevard in Los Angeles, when a distracted driver rear-ended my car without ever using their brakes. Howard Blau took on my case with the same diligence, empathy and care he had previously shown my son. And even as the Corona pandemic hit the nation, Howard was undeterred and continued his fight for me until he brought my case to a successful conclusion. My family feels exceptionally grateful to have the dedication of such an outstanding attorney and human being who is alway there for us to help, and who we may always contact regardless of the type of problem or question we may wish to discuss.
Howard and his team can't be beat. He has been my lawyer for 45 years, since he opened his first office on Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica. He has never let me down, and I never hesitate to recommend him to friends and family. His moral compass is unflappable, preparation and knowledge beyond reproach. I love that in the Peer testimonials, one of them is from a lawyer with whom he had an adversarial role in a very complex case. That speaks volumes to the integrity of them both!
Excellent Service All Around. Howard and his professional staff make you feel comfortable and well taken care of from the first phone call to the office. Howard has advised me on situations above and beyond his experience in motorcycle and personal injury. His extensive knowledge of the law and attention to detail is what makes me feel so comfortable speaking with Howard. I have and will continue to recommend him to friends and family if they are ever in need of an attorney or legal advice.
I was hit by a car and needed representation. Howard was referred by a trusted attorney friend, and I am so glad he was. Not only is he a truly lovely man and fun to talk to, but also he got the highest possible settlement from the opposing insurance company and painlessly guided me through all the mind-numbing paperwork. Where needed, he explained the process in words of one syllable or less, so I understood what was going on and felt in control. I would recommend Howard to anyone needing representation in his field.
Howard has played many roles for me throughout my recovery process. A man who I initially thought I was hiring to just be my lawyer, has become a lifelong friend and mentor. Howard has helped me get through one of the most difficult points of my life. From learning how to walk again, to learning how to reintegrate with society after I was medically discharged from the military, Howard was there every step of the way. Providing me with not only phenomenal legal counsel, but a lifetime full of wisdom. In the military I was taught to pay attention to the small details. It takes every little puzzle piece to complete the bigger picture. Howard is all about the small details. He called to check up on me more than my family did. Howard went above and beyond what I expected out of our partnership. Howard and his amazing staff tirelessly pursued my compensation. Even when I grew tired of what felt like a never-ending chase, Howard provided the motivation to carry on. Howard is a seasoned lawyer. Howard is a wise mentor. Howard is a lifelong friend. Howard is precisely the man you should hire for your case. I couldn’t have done it without him, and you sure as hell cant either. Best Regards, Brock Ruebel
