MALCOLM B. ROBERTS. PARTNER AT LANDAY ROBERTS, LLP

Native San Diegan Malcolm B. Roberts, Partner at Landay Roberts, LLP, has wanted to help people for as long as he can remember. This desire to aid others, coupled with his love of problem solving and an unrivaled work ethic, has served Roberts well as an emerging star in the San Diego legal community. More importantly, these goals and skills have served many others over the years.
“My dad retired as a Lieutenant from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. I don’t think he ever turned down an opportunity for overtime. Sometimes he was so tired that he would take a nap in the car in our driveway before coming into the house. I didn’t realize it at the time, but watching him work so hard helped me realize the importance of hard work,” Roberts says. “My parents have not only been great role models, but they have always been extremely supportive.”
These days, Roberts, who was first recognized as a Top Young Attorney by the San Diego Daily Transcript in 2012, and was most recently named to the San Diego Business Journal’s 2016 Best of the Bar, and named a 2016 San Diego Rising
Star by Super Lawyers, is proud to be the co-founder of Landay Roberts, LLP which he opened in 2014 with John Landay. “We represent plaintiffs and defendants in business disputes, class actions and personal injury matters, and we provide excellent and cost-effective service,” he explains.
To do that, Roberts says, “We take a careful look at potential clients to determine their goal and we come up with a plan to achieve that goal. We also advise potential clients about the strengths and weaknesses of their case before we will accept the case.”
As such, Roberts has a winning record for clients. In fact, it was a case he worked on several years ago which served as the catalyst for launching his firm with Landay. That case – which included representation of 15 individual plaintiffs in a
four-month jury trial, and resulted in a verdict in favor of the plaintiffs against a national title insurance company wherein massive mortgage fraud was perpetuated on the plaintiffs—also further piqued Roberts’ desire to work with more plaintiffs. On the defense side, Landay Roberts LLP recently succeeded in their motion to quash service of summons, thereby effectively forcing the plaintiff to dismiss their case against the New York corporation being sued in CA, who Roberts was representing.
Not surprisingly, Roberts works as hard outside of the office as he does for his clients. He serves on the Board of Directors at the Olivia Hudson Foundation (OHF), which is dedicated to furthering pediatric brain cancer research, assisting families of children with brain cancer, and raising public awareness of pediatric brain cancer. He has volunteered for the Cancer Legal Resource Center, providing information and educational outreach on cancer-related legal issues to those stricken with cancer and others impacted by the disease. He has mentored young parolees through the VIP Mentor Program, served on the Board of Directors of the Earl B. Gilliam Bar Association, and mentors law students and younger attorneys.
As far as the future is concerned for Roberts, he’s looking forward to a long, and continuously successful career in his hometown. With almost a decade of experience, Roberts loves what he does today as much as he did when he first became interested in the law. “I enjoy listening to a problem, and figuring out the best way to achieve the best result for each client.”
