Overview

Trusted Advisors

Since our founding in 1948, our attorneys have continued to set industry benchmarks for client dedication, expertise, value, and success. Businesses, families, and individuals repeatedly turn to SCMV to serve as their trusted advisors.

As member of the Law Firm Alliance, a worldwide organization of carefully-selected law firms, we provide quality representation around the globe that rivals that of any international law firm.

Our highly talented attorneys and staff are committed to taking the best approach to achieve meaningful results. We scale our services to meet the particular goals of each client by communicating directly and frequently with our clients and staying active and hands-on in all matters. 

SCMV attorneys represent the values we see in our successful clients - strong character, entrepreneurial drive, and dedicated community leadership. Our firm is proud to give back to our community through volunteerism, pro bono work, and financial support of numerous nonprofit and civic organizations. SCMV stands behind many of the most important civic, business, and legal organizations in our community. 

We strive for a diverse workplace that reflects the communities and clients we serve. Young attorneys are drawn to our firm by the opportunity to work side-by-side with seasoned professionals while learning to be future legal and community leaders. 

Our attorneys understand the importance of the work we do, and we are honored that many clients have put their trust in SCMV for seven decades. We take pride in being one of San Diego’s oldest and most recognized law firms, and we look forward to serving our clients for decades to come.
