The Firm

The law firm of Bley and Bley was founded in the late 19th century by Joseph Bien. In 1925, Bertrand Adolfo Bley, Joseph’s nephew, expanded the firm’s practice to include a wide range of legal services. Stephen Bruce Bley joined his father in practice in 1969. Like her father before her, Samantha Bley DeJean joined her father in practice in late 1996. Starting with a solid foundation of legal training, client experience and excellent contacts in the Bay Area legal and business community, the firm’s lawyers enjoy over 100 years of combined legal experience.

We operate with a team approach, pairing more than one attorney on most matters. We find that this allows for an appropriate allocation of work and ensures that our clients have an attorney familiar with their case available to them at all times.

Our main source of client referrals are our prior clients and other attorneys. We specialize in high asset and high conflict divorces that have not otherwise resolved through settlement or other alternative dispute resolution options such as Collaborative Divorce and mediation. We also handle a variety of other personal and business litigation matters. We represent a wide range of clients, including captains of industry, local and national celebrities, CEO’s and business owners of all sizes. Our firm is AV rated by Martindale Hubble.
