On February 27 the San Antonio Bar Association is excited to welcome new City Attorney Robbie Greenblum to our monthly luncheon!
||Robbie Greenblum was appointed San Antonio City Attorney in December 2013. An immigration lawyer who has served as Mayor Julián Castro's chief of staff since 2009, Greenblum took over for Michael Bernard, who left the city attorney's post to join a private practice in San Antonio after more than eight years in charge.
Mr. Greenblum entered the ranks of municipal government following a successful 18-year legal career during which he handled immigration issues, including federal class-action impact litigation and political asylum cases, as well as domestic and international business matters. A bilingual native of Laredo, Mr. Greenblum successfully developed a family and business immigration practice at Matthews and Branscomb where he achieved share- holder status in his second year at firm. After leaving the firm, Mr. Greenblum continued to advise U.S. businesses, including some publicly traded companies, foreign investors and families on immigration matters.
Prior to that, Mr. Greenblum was staff attorney with the Refugee Assistance Council in Laredo and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights. His work at the civil rights’ committee included significant involvement in the class-action “Bowie High School” lawsuit that ended the U.S. Border Patrol’s practice of conducting sweeps at a high school campus in El Paso, Texas.
Please note that this month's luncheon will take place at the The Copper Coin,
located on the lobby level of the Frost Bank Tower - NOT at the Plaza Club.
The cost to attend is $25 for members of the San Antonio Bar Association and Plaza Club members, and $30 for nonmembers.
