Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide our clients with the highest caliber of legal services and to efficiently accomplish their business objectives. Our attorneys have advised hundreds of different businesses and individuals over a twenty year period. We have a diverse and broad range of experience -- acting as outside counsel to Fortune 100 companies; serving as in-house executives at international, publicly-traded companies; and representing start-up companies, executives and individuals. This blend of expertise gives us a unique ability to advise our clients from a holistic point of view and to understand the dynamics of working with different clientele within the business-- production, operations, finance, internal audit, human resources, sales, etc.

Who We Are
Walraven & Westerfeld's lawyers collectively have over 50 years of experience representing and advising businesses. Although we are a small firm, our attorneys have a broad array of experience from partner of a national law firm to in-house executives at international publicly-traded companies. Over the years, we have successfully handled cases for a diverse array of clients, ranging from Fortune 100 corporations to start-up, venture-backed, and early stage companies. We have litigated the "bet the company" cases, been involved in the largest of corporate transactions, and advised clients on the most crucial business and legal decisions.

We are leaders in the legal profession. Our lawyers are frequently invited to speak at seminars and conferences on various legal topics. We are also active in a number of legal organizations, including the American Bar Association, the Orange County Bar Association, the Employer's Group, and the San Diego French-American Chamber of Commerce.

We are also committed to giving back to the community. We proudly devote a substantial amount of our time serving on charitable boards and supporting charitable causes. We also regularly advise non-profit organizations on a pro bono basis with respect to legal issues.
