About Us

Edwin A. Barnum

Attorney at Law

It was always my childhood dream to become an attorney. After decades in a sales career and seeing the cyclical volatility of real estate, I decided to pursue my dream and completed a Doctorate in Jurisprudence (J.D.) in 2003. I downsized my real estate brokerage firm and added my law practice soon after. Over the course of more than three decades wearing a number of hats (Investor, Entrepreneur, Broker, Recruiter, Trainer, Sales Consultant, and Lawyer), I have accumulated extensive people skill and compassion in getting people what they need. I've helped countless individuals with their estate planning, personal injury, immigration, and bankruptcy cases by providing them with educated and attentive legal counsel.
I take the time to personally get to know my clients and their situations in order to best represent their cases. I answer my client's calls or return them promptly and speak in simple language and offer my clients options regarding their case. f you're looking for an attorney that you can “talk”, has compassion and temperament that you can relate with, contact my office today to schedule a “strategy session” and learn more about your issue. I serve clients in South Los Angeles, Gardena, Torrance, Hawthorne, Inglewood, Carson, East Los Angeles, and Long Beach California, and in the surrounding counties.
Very truly yours,
Edwin A. Barnum, Esq.
