Office Leadership


Hahn Loeser’s San Diego office serves the needs of our individual and business clients in California and throughout the West Coast. Our California presence continues to expand with the addition of trusted advisors who carry on the firm’s reputation for excellence, commitment to client service and dedication to the community.

Full-Service Law Firm in Downtown San Diego, With a Presence in North County

As a full-service firm, we have extensive resources both in experience and personnel to approach our clients’ legal challenges with a comprehensive yet individualized plan of action. We begin client relationships with concentrated efforts to gain an in-depth understanding of a client’s legal and business needs. We then leverage that understanding to create an ideal team selected from our firm’s talented attorneys who have broad expertise across a wide range of legal areas.  Working together, we develop an effective strategy in concert with our clients to guide them toward a full resolution of their legal concerns.

We welcome opportunities to assist our clients across a diverse range of challenging matters. We offer clients core strength in business, labor and employment, construction, creditors rights, intellectual property and trusts and estates and we are proud of the results we have helped our clients achieve.

Our San Diego litigation team is proud to be ranked among the top tier of General Commercial Litigation practices in San Diego in the 2021 through 2023 editions of Chambers USA, one of the nation’s most widely used legal services rankings guide. We have wide-ranging capabilities in the following areas:

Market leading class action defense practice. Our team has extensive experience in trying class actions with jury and bench trials. We have successfully defended over 100 consumer class actions over the last decade involving over $3 billion in alleged damages. Our experience defending class actions includes class-action lawsuit trials, eliminating proposed class actions on the merits prior to the certification decision, successfully opposing class-certification motions, decertifying previously certified classes, negotiating settlements of class claims, and obtaining necessary court approval of class settlements.

Outstanding appellate experience. Our team not only litigates matters in the trial courts, but we also have the appellate experience to develop compelling briefs in oral argument in the courts of appeal. We have argued and briefed matters in most (if not all) the California appellate districts, the California Supreme Court, the Ninth Circuit, as well as many of the other federal circuits. We are responsible for many appellate opinions affirming favorable decisions for our clients as well as overturning those decisions against our clients.

Real estate litigation. Our real estate litigation experience is extensive. We understand all areas of real estate. Title insurers hire us to represent their insureds (lender and property owners) in “major claims” involving multimillion-dollar disputes. Those same title insurers hire our team to defend them in the event of coverage/bad faith disputes. We also provide our real estate agents and service providers with defenses against common claims, including alleged non-disclosures and kickbacks.

Regulatory compliance and advice. We are recognized as a “go-to” firm for providing regulatory compliance advice and defense, particularly in unique areas of California law. For example, Hahn Loeser has addressed the following regulations that impact our clients—California’s Proposition 65, California’s Song-Beverly Credit Card Act, California’s Mercury Thermostat Collection Act, food safety and labelling, data privacy, Telephone Consumer Protection Act, Consumer Legal Remedies Act, Real Estate Settlement Practices Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and California’s Automatic Renewal Law.

We also counsel clients through the complexities of California’s labor and employment laws and represent business clients in compliance with the ADA, FMLA, CFRA, WARN and mini-WARN, ADEA, Older Worker Benefits Protections Act, Uniform Trade Secret Act, and the EEOC, DLSE, and NLRB enforcement manuals. Our trusts and estates group focuses on estate planning, wealth transfer and preservation, business succession planning, trust administration, probate, and probate litigation for both fiduciaries and beneficiaries.

Hahn Loeser’s Commitment to Excellence

Established in Cleveland in 1920, the founding attorneys of Hahn Loeser set their roots deep into the bedrock of the Midwestern values and uncompromising dedication to client service. Over the years, these roots have spread from coast to coast, expanding our services while never losing sight of our firm’s original commitment to character and integrity.

Here in San Diego, we remained faithful to these commitments as we created our office’s entrepreneurial spirit and team-based strategies, which have proven successful in providing our clients the best possible results. Team strategies for complex problems focus on discovering creative yet pragmatic solutions derived from our extensive knowledge of California law and customized to an individual client’s needs.

As we deepen our roots in San Diego, we remain true to our foremost tradition forged 100 years ago in Cleveland: Our people and the people they serve represent the foundation of Hahn Loeser.

Committed to Serving the California Community

A hallmark of our Firm and our San Diego team is the strong ties forged within the communities we serve. Our highly regarded attorneys and dedicated staff contribute their time and talents to numerous philanthropic and community organizations. When our San Diego attorneys are not representing our clients in the courtroom, they are likely working to improve the lives of others in our community, by serving as executives, board members, and volunteers of multiple organizations, including:

Century Club of San Diego
Feeding America San Diego
Legal Aid Society of San Diego
The New Children’s Museum
San Diego County Bar Foundation
San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program
Special Olympics of Southern California
