Our Passion is Outcome-Focused Litigation

Bordin Semmer LLP is a full-service litigation firm comprised of trial attorneys who have the expertise, passion and drive to best position their clients for a favorable result.

Our Philosophy


The attorneys at Bordin Semmer LLP practice with one primary goal in mind – the best result for our clients.

Our strategy is outcome-focused litigation. It begins with identification of the best possible outcome for each unique case at its outset. We next determine our client’s preferences with respect to representation and communication. Whether representing an individual or a small company that wants us by their side every step of the way, or a Fortune 100 company that prefers monthly status updates, we tailor our handling accordingly.

We find that this philosophy drives our ability to achieve the most important goals – our clients’ peace-of-mind and confidence that we will achieve their objectives.

Our Strength is Our People


Having both grown up in the San Diego area, Joshua Bordin-Wosk and Matthew Semmer were childhood friends before becoming attorneys.

Having known each other for 30+ years and after more than a decade of practicing law, both established litigators recognized that their legal practices complimented one another’s. While their experience overlaps in many ways, the partners have handled different cases and represented clients in different industries. Their experience also led both partners to recognize a gap in the legal services industry – a law firm that is dedicated to providing focused, attentive, dynamic and flexible representation designed to meet the client’s goal(s).

With their respective backgrounds and shared ambition regarding outcome centric representation, the partners founded Bordin Semmer LLP.
