When we take you on as our Client, we will strive to make our relationship a fulfilling one for you. You may not get exactly the result you expect but you will be convinced that we tried our best within the ethical bounds of the law.
Edwin A. Barnum, Esq.
A professional who is truly compassionate of his clients' plight, but relentless against the adversaries. His ways has been seasoned by life experiences and mellowed by years of trying to live his life the "right way".
Attorney Barnum had exchanged "bullets and wits" from being a former military man to businessman and now attorney.
You can be assured that he will "return the fire" on your behalf and not leave you "worst off" than before you hired him.
He is an attorney "with a heart" and someone you can be proud to call your "friend" in the profession.
Areas of Practice
I successfully helped a couple in their mid 60’s where the husband is unemployed due to disability and sells ice cream in his old converted van to earn extra income and the wife works for a food catering company.
They filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and we’re able to save their home, his ice cream business, two cars and got a discharge on credit card and hospital bills totaling close to $50,000.00. In addition, after their unsecured debts were discharged, we were able to negotiate with their lenders to modify the terms of their 1st and 2nd mortgages which allowed them to keep their home
Another example pertains to an unmarried person with 6 children and a grandson who lives with his girlfriend who continuously used their credit cards for all kinds of purchases. He was the only one working as a maintenance man and we were able to have them save 2 cars and 1 truck and discharge close to $30,000.00 in credit card bills
