Brian D. Woolfall


Brian Woolfall has lived in and around San Diego since 1992, and has over 20 years’ experience litigating complex construction defect cases throughout Southern California. He has successfully defended developers and general contractors in claims made with respect to hundreds of single-family homes, large apartment communities, mid-rise condominiums, and high-rise condominiums, including mixed-use properties. Brian’s experience includes actions in both state court and arbitration, and he has participated in multiple mediations and settlement conferences. Prior to joining Lorber, Greenfield & Polito, Brian spent seven years representing homeowners in construction defect cases, which broadened his perspective and enhanced his ability to aggressively defend his clients.

Brian also has experience defending cases involving personal injury, products liability, unfair business practices, and antitrust violations under the Cartwright Act, which prohibits competitors from restraining trade, fixing prices or reducing competition.

Brian’s BBA from Baylor University provided him with an accounting and business background as well as an understanding of quantitative business analysis techniques. This background enables him to evaluate damages claims, including those relating to income-producing assets, to formulate the appropriate defenses. As a member of Law Review at California Western School of Law, Brian developed a keen interest in legal research and writing, which carried over into his practice. Brian has substantial experience drafting pleadings, written discovery, complex motions, trial and arbitration briefs, contracts, and settlement agreements.
