With a desire to offer more creative and broader representation of clients, after 12 years with the San Diego law firm of Post Kirby Noonan & Sweat LLP, Jeffrey P. Lendrum left the partnership in 2000 to form the Lendrum Law Firm. Mr. Lendrum's goal was to create a boutique law firm that would dedicate its resources to a select number of clients to ensure the maximum potential recovery for the firm's clients. Fourteen years later, this remains the principal business model of the firm.

For each of the past 15 years, Martindale-Hubbell rating service has awarded Mr. Lendrum the distinguished AV Preeminent* rating. This peer-review rating is the highest possible rating for an attorney and is awarded annually based on confidential reviews by judges and attorneys and is reserved for those select attorneys demonstrating preeminent legal abilities and the highest ethical standards of practice.

Mr. Lendrum has also received the following recognitions by San Diego Magazine based on ethical standards and professional excellence:

  • Top Lawyers In San Diego - Securities Fraud (2014)
  • Top Lawyers In San Diego - Litigation (2013)

Today, the firm's practice consists primarily of representing plaintiffs in claims involving investment loss recovery, financial fraud, financial advisor malpractice, loan fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, securities fraud, investment fraud, stockbroker malpractice, insurance agent malpractice, wage theft, wage and hour violations, wrongful termination, commission disputes and real estate fraud.

Mr. Lendrum firmly believes that to be successful in recovering financial losses, your attorney must understand the mindset of the attorneys representing the defendant. Mr. Lendrum has unique insight into defense strategies and tactics because he has successfully represented some of the largest multinational corporations in the world, including numerous tobacco manufacturers and securities brokerage firms.

The firm's extensive experience in representing both plaintiffs and defendants provides tremendous benefit to its clients and invaluable insight into designing the appropriate individualized strategy to achieve its clients' goals.

At the Lendrum Law Firm, we understand that our continued success is a direct reflection of the services provided to our clients. The attorneys at the firm are therefore committed to the philosophy that client service is of the highest priority and accordingly work to foster strong client relationships with an emphasis on timely, personalized attention.
