Counsel to California’s Business Entrepreneurs

Neufeld Marks delivers creative legal solutions to California’s business entrepreneurs at every stage, from business counseling to complex civil litigation.



Our litigation attorneys specialize in all facets of civil litigation in state and federal courts, at the pre-trial, trial, and appellate levels. Our senior lawyers have tried dozens of jury trials and bench trials to verdict, for both plaintiffs and defendants; we have also handled numerous binding and judicial arbitrations on behalf of our clients.

Our lawyers have broad experience in reaching creative settlements of lawsuits and other disputes, and we work hard to settle cases when it is the right thing for our clients to do. However, unlike many lawyers, we are not afraid to go to trial if a case cannot be settled on terms that are satisfactory to the client – and we will never force a client into an unwanted settlement, just to avoid going to trial.
