Trueblood Law Firm, Repossession Attorneys
The mission of the Trueblood Law firm is to assist consumers in enforcing the consumer protection laws that govern repossessions and repossession agencies. Alexander B. Trueblood is the principal of the firm, and has extensive experience in the law of unlawful repossessions and breaches of the peace. He is a long-standing member of the National Association of Consumer Advocates, and is licensed to practice in Texas, Washington, and California.
Mr. Trueblood graduated with honors from the University of California, Berkeley, and obtained his law degree from the UCLA School of Law, where he was awarded membership in the prestigious Order of the Coif. He has over 25 years of experience in complex litigation, individual cases, and consumer class actions.
Mr. Trueblood began his career at Morrison & Foerster, a major national law firm. He then practiced as a plaintiff’s and consumer class action attorney with several respected plaintiff’s consumer law firms. In 2001, he opened his own practice and founded the Trueblood Law Firm in Los Angeles. The firm now has offices in Texas, Washington, and California, and serves consumers throughout all three states.
Over the last decade, Mr. Trueblood has been an acknowledged leader in holding lenders and repossession agencies accountable for misconduct related to auto repossessions. For example, he has brought more than 100 class actions against lenders who violated California’s Rees-Levering Automobile Sales Finance Act, which challenged the written notices issued by lenders after an automobile repossession. The resulting settlements have been remarkably successful, resulting in the waiver of over a billion dollars in debt for consumers. Mr. Trueblood is currently involved in class actions against the “repossession forwarder” industry, which allege that the repossession forwarders are endangering the public by ignoring repossession agency licensing laws, and driving the more responsible local repossession agents out of business.
Finally, Mr. Trueblood is a pioneer in enforcing consumer rights through individual wrongful repossession cases, including under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the myriad other state laws which govern repossession. He is one of the few lawyers in the country who is both knowledgeable and willing to accept cases in this difficult practice area.
