Blumberg & Associates
About Blumberg and Associates
Blumberg & Associates was founded in 1988 on the idea that everyone charged with a criminal offense in the state of Arizona deserves representation equal to or better than that of the prosecution. We are committed to providing that representation. Our Arizona criminal defense attorneys routinely represent clients across the state including Maricopa County, Yavapai County, Coconino County, Pima County, and the cities of Phoenix, Glendale, Mesa, Peoria, Tempe, Scottsdale, Prescott, Tucson, Flagstaff and in federal district court.
A History of Success
In more than 30 years of practice, our criminal defense law firm has handled more than 100 jury trials and innumerable bench trials for clients charged with felonies and misdemeanors. We have won acquittals in more that 25 serious felony cases, more than many attorneys have even tried. We have successfully handled a wide variety of Arizona and federal criminal matters including sex crimes, drug crimes, DUI, violent crimes, white collar crimes, domestic violence, juvenile offenses, and probation violations.
Experience In and Out of the Courtroom
A majority of Arizona and federal criminal cases are resolved prior to trial. Therefore, while it is imperative that your defense attorney has a record of success in the courtroom, their knowledge of the law and negotiating skill outside of the courtroom are equally important. We have successfully negotiated thousands of pre-trial settlements for our clients that have avoided or reduced the mandatory sentences associated with their original criminal charge.
Our Arizona criminal defense attorneys have handled thousands of cases. We understand how police conduct investigations, how prosecuting attorneys prepare cases, and the rules of law and evidence judges use when handling a case. However, our client’s greatest advantage is that we understand juries. We have a reputation for giving exceptional closing arguments, some of the last words a jury hears prior to deliberation.
Overview and Experience
Bruce Blumberg is certified as a Specialist in Criminal Law by the State Bar of Arizona. Of the 18,000 licensed attorneys in Arizona, only about 750 of them have received specialist certification, and only a handful of those are certified in the area of Criminal Law. During his tenure as a defense attorney, Bruce has represented many serious felony matters, including a number of death penalty cases as a Maricopa County Court Appointed Counsel. Bruce has a reputation within the legal community of being an honest, hardworking attorney. He has a passion for his clients and dedicates 100 percent to the defense of any client represented by his firm. Although Bruce has always maintained an emphasis on Criminal Law, he also uses his litigation skills in representing many clients on Family Law matters.
Blumberg & Associates was founded in 1988 and was located (in the Luhrs Tower) just a short drive from the Superior Court, the County Attorney’s Office and the Maricopa County Jail. This close proximity has allowed Bruce to develop relationships that would not have been cultivated from an office anywhere else in the Valley. Bruce attended Michigan State University, graduating in 1976 with a pre-law degree. He was subsequently accepted into Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan. After receiving his law degree, Bruce was admitted to the Michigan Bar. While practicing law during the day, he studied at Wayne State University in Detroit, where he earned his master’s of law in taxation.
Bruce’s first taste of Criminal Law came under the tutelage of Edward F. Bell, a former Judge for the Circuit Court of Detroit. Their clientele included high-profile individuals such as Jane Kennedy, Leon Spinks and Don King. During this period, Bruce honed his trial experience against defendants such as Ford Motor Company.
