Mr. Bley is a principal of the firm. He practiced law with his father prior to his father's retirement in 1985 and now practices with his daughter and law partner, Samantha Bley DeJean.

Mr. Bley is known for his ardent and aggressive client representation, earning him the reputation as a venerable opponent by his colleagues. Mr. Bley's legal career began as a deputy district attorney in 1967 for the City of San Francisco where his legendary courtroom experience took hold. While trying numerous complex criminal cases, including multi-defendant murder cases as well as many high stakes business and tort cases, the skilled and theatrical style for which he is well known today was born.

Mr. Bley's practice is focused almost exclusively on high-asset, high-conflict dissolutions.

Mr. Bley's over 50 years of experience allows him the ability to see complex dissolutions from all angles. While every case is unique, the breadth of his experience allows for creative solutions to difficult problems.

Mr. Bley received a Bachelor of Law degree (now known as a Juris Doctor degree) from the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law (Boalt Hall). Mr. Bley has been named a Super Lawyer by San Francisco Magazine and has earned the top professional rating by his colleagues as AV.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
