Singleton Schreiber, LLP congratulates its new Sacramento partners, Chris Rodriguez and Andrew Bluth, on their ongoing recognition as two of Sacramento’s Best Lawyers!
Singleton Schreiber is one of California’s preeminent law firms, representing thousands of individuals who are victims of mass torts and corporate malfeasance, including those harmed by wildfires, automobile accidents and other catastrophic incidents, and victims of civil rights violations. With the addition of top-flight trial lawyers like Chris and Andrew and the opening of its Sacramento Office, Singleton Schreiber continues its expansion to seek justice for individuals across California and nationwide.
Chris and Andrew have been counseling clients and winning cases together for more than two decades. Before opening the Sacramento office of Singleton Schreiber, they worked at two national firms handling jury trials, bench trials, arbitrations, and administrative hearings involving a broad array of complex civil issues. While they certainly have their fair share of courtroom victories, Andrew and Chris pride themselves on developing practical, efficient strategies that serve the best interests and well-being of their clients, including strategies to avoid the courtroom when it is in the client’s bests interest.
Before opening the Sacramento office of Singleton Schreiber, Chris served as the managing partner of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman’s Sacramento office and was also a partner at Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith. Throughout his career, Chris has successfully tried numerous complex business litigation matters, including litigation against state and federal agencies. He has obtained hundreds of favorable judgments, awards, and settlements for his clients. For most of his career, Chris’ practice focused on representing some of America’s largest companies, and he is excited to use that experience to advance the interests of Singleton Schreiber’s individual clients.
Chris graduated from Harvard University and earned his law degree from the Boalt Hall (Berkeley) School of Law. Chris grew up in the small town of Winters, California, where he still lives with his wife and three children. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, coaching competitive youth basketball, and volunteering as an umpire for the local Little League baseball program.
Like Chris, Andrew has spent his entire career litigating complex civil disputes across many subject areas at the Sacramento Offices of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman and more recently at Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith. He has litigated consumer class action cases, unfair business practice claims, and environmental cases in federal and state court, handled lawsuits and claims against government entities, and tried cases to juries and judges across California and nationwide. Andrew’s experience includes class actions involving the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) as well as California’s “two-party consent” telephone recording statutes. He has represented parties in lawsuits involving such broad topics including health care issues, contract disputes, banking issues, and many more.
Prior to becoming a lawyer, Andrew was a reporter for the New York Times and Orange County Register newspapers where he covered national breaking news events as well as the surf and restaurant industries. Andrew graduated with a B.S. in Journalism from Northwestern University and earned his law degree from the University of California-Davis School of Law where he represented victims of civil rights violations as part of the school’s Civil Rights Clinic. While attending University of California-Davis School of Law, Andrew was President of the Moot Court Honors Board and competed on behalf of the law school at moot court competitions. He was also an editor for the Journal of International Law and Policy and graduated as a member of the Order of the Barristers. He lives in Sacramento with his wife, two daughters, and two disobedient dogs.
At Singleton Schreiber, Chris and Andrew together lead the firm’s mass torts practice, class action and consumer protection practice, and oversee liability and trial preparation activities on key wildfire cases.
