Blake E. Burtchaell
Blake Burtchaell was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. “Blakersfield” started to trend while he played adult baseball during his late college years in Los Angeles… it never caught on.
After graduating college with his Business Law degree, Blake joined the dark side by working in insurance defense. He became passionate for helping his significantly injured clients navigate through the labyrinth of insurance, and finding the medical treatment they deserved. He knew that the Plaintiff’s life was his calling and immediately enrolled in law school.
During his first year at Southwestern University School of Law, Blake was selected as a research assistant editing law review articles and a Moot Court Finalist. Given his pristine moral compass, he was the first ever Chairman of the Honor Code Committee and later graduated with a Public Service Distinction after completing in excess of 75 hours of Pro Bono services with veterans clinics, expungement clinics, immigration/DACA clinics, homeless prevention, and children’s rights.
Blake was also the Founding President of the Consumer Law Society at Southwestern University School of Law inspired by the Consumer Attorney Association of Los Angles (CAALA).
Before joining the Justice Team, Blake worked for a plaintiff’s litigation firm where he honed his skills for law and motion. In 2017, he was selected and participated in the 31st Annual Jack Daniels Los Angeles ABOTA Trial School—where he crushed it. Blake is a proud member of CAALA, CAOC, OCTLA, LACBA, SMBA and TLC.
In his spare time, Blake loves to spend time with his wife McKenzi, and is also a sub-par winemaker, dachshund enthusiast and huge baseball fan.
