Jason Daniel Feld of Ulich, Ganion, Balmuth, Fisher & Feld LLP

“I have known I wanted to be an attorney since 6th grade, when I did a Mock Trial in Junior High School. The strategic aspects of litigation continue to fuel my desire to practice law today,” says Jason Daniel Feld, Partner at Ulich, Ganion, Balmuth, Fisher & Feld, LLP.
Feld grew up in Houston, Texas, where he was active in high school sports, Speech & Debate and obtained his Eagle Scout. He graduated from the University of Houston and moved to California to attend Whittier Law School where he graduated cum laude and was a member of the Law Review and Trial Advocacy Honors Board. While in law school, Feld had the distinct honor of serving as a judicial extern to the Honorable Alex Kozinski, Circuit Judge for U.S. Court of Appeals - Ninth Circuit.
Since beginning his law practice, Feld has been defending homebuilders, developers and contractors, to great success for over a decade, and in multiple states. Licensed to practice in Texas and Arizona in addition to California, Feld says, “Our firm is a boutique litigation and transactional firm specializing in the defense of homebuilders, developers and contractors, as well as governmental entities in their general liability, environmental, employment, construction defect, construction accident and insurance defense matters.”
Personally, Feld is primarily involved with helping smaller “mom and pop” builder clients that are typically family owned and operated, which gives him the unique opportunity to not only handle their litigation matters, but also assist the company with overall best practices and risk prevention. Feld also serves as panel counsel for several prominent insurance carriers, which he explains, only makes him a better attorney. “Developing clients from both the direct builder/contractor community and from the insurance carriers who insure my clients is important. Having good relationships with both in this tripartite relationship maximizes the benefits to both my client and their insurance carriers,” he says.
Known for being pragmatic, strategic and client focused, Feld’s successful track record for obtaining favorable outcomes for clients and insurance carriers through litigation and alternative dispute resolution has earned him an AV-Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell, along with numerous Rising Star awards from Super Lawyers®. Not surprisingly, he’s also a sought-after expert for seminars such as the Annual Perrin National Construction Defect Conference, where he was a featured speaker last month in Ft. Lauderdale.
As for when Feld isn’t busy fighting for what is fair for his clients? He’s working hard to improve the legal community, and his hometown community outside of the office. He and his wife Samantha—also an attorney, working as in-house counsel at College Health Enterprises—are extremely active in the Orange County Jewish community including their involvement with their local temple, Congregation B’Nai Israel in Tustin, the OC Jewish Federation, as well as being a founding member of the Orange County Jewish Bar Association. They have two beautiful young daughters, who are active in sports, school activities and their Indian Princess Group. “I also enjoy playing basketball at the JCC and volunteering as the Chapter Advisor for the Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity Chapter at Cal State Fullerton” said Feld.
Likewise, his firm is equally committed to service and charitable efforts, and proudly supports organizations such as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund, Movember Foundation, Susan G. Koman Foundation, and the Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education (GRACE).
So, what’s next for Feld, who’s already accomplished so much? “I plan on continuing to practice law for the next 20-25 years. I hope to grow my practice, and expand my work into Arizona and Texas to further service the needs of my builder and insurance carrier clients,” he says. We will keep an eye out for Jason as he continues to be a leader in the Orange County legal community.
