Remembering and Honoring Blake P. Loebs
It is with great sadness that we convey the difficult news of the passing of Blake Philip Loebs, a Principal in the Trial and Litigation Practice Group in the Oakland office of Meyers Nave. The Firm’s thoughts are with Blake’s wife, Alisa, and their two young children, Ryan and Amanda. Our thoughts also go out to the many friends at Meyers Nave and outside the Firm who worked with and admired Blake. For all of us, Blake was a reliable friend, dedicated colleague and compassionate human being. Everyone at Meyers Nave considers it a great privilege to have worked with Blake and include him as part of our family. We will always remember and cherish his personable, thoughtful and helpful manner.
Blake joined Meyers Nave after serving 22 years as a Deputy City Attorney for the City and County of San Francisco. As Chief of Civil Rights Litigation for nine years for the City and County of San Francisco, Blake supervised civil rights litigation for a 22-member trial team in the office that The American Lawyer described as “one of the most aggressive and talented city law departments in the nation.” In 2013, the San Francisco Police Officers Association honored Blake as the “Citizen of the Year” and awarded him the Medal of Honor, the two highest honors that can be bestowed on civilians, reflecting his special expertise defending police officers and the police officer profession. Blake’s impressive record includes being undefeated in over 30 jury trials and obtaining published decisions that continue to serve as legal authority today. Blake served his clients and his community with steadfast leadership, integrity and honor.
