About Paul J. Mirowski

Paul Jospeh Mirowski grew up in Michigan where he earned his Bachelor of Science at Michigan State University. Later he moved to San Francisco to attend law school at the University of San Francisco School of Law. After passing the California bar on his first try, in 1983 Paul formed Mirowski & Associates in San Diego and naturally specialized in representing the Creative Community. One should never leave one’s passions behind. Paul’s passions are wine and music. In addition to the practice of law, Paul Mirowski is a winemaker and musician.

Paul and his brother James have made wine for over 15 years. In 2007, they opened the boutique urban winery known as Treasure Island Wines located on Treasure Island in the Bay of San Francisco www.tiwines.com. You can purchase our wines and swag at Treasure Island Wines Store

Paul has written and lectured on various topics including many Entertainment and Intellectual Property issues, served as a Commissioner pro-tem (Small Claims Judge) in San Diego Courts and has been an adjunct professor of law at Thomas Jefferson Law School, UCSD and Grossmont College where he has taught such classes as “Entertainment Law and Practice” and “Computer & Hi-Tech Law.” Paul’s legal career includes a “scam” busting case against local “talent agents” which was widely covered by the San Diego news media and successfully advocating for his client in a New York Federal Appellate case concerning Trade Secrets [See Julie Research Lab. Inc. v. Select Photographic Eng. Inc. et. al.  (1993) 998 F.2D 65]. Mirowski has also been Chairman or Co-Chair of San Diego Entertainment & Sports Lawyer’s Association and presently hangs his shingle as Mirowski & Associates in La Mesa.

Even with his law practice, Paul continued to be involved in the music scene. In his early years, Paul played keyboards in such notable bands as Primal Grunt. After finishing law school and moving to San Diego, Paul formed the band “Species” and later released an album of his original work entitled “Of Questionable Origins.” This album can be purchased on-line including from ITunes Species ITunes. Paul continued to be involved in artistic endeavors including playing keyboards and rhythm guitar in San Diego bands including “The Cubes” (an 80’s cover band), “Shady Grey” (a Classic Rock cover band) and “Rock Justice” – the Winner of the 2007 “Jam for Justice” Battle of the Bands and again, Winner of the 2010 Battle of the Bands held respectively at 4th & B and Canes in Mission Beach by the YNLD section of the San Diego Bar Association.
