How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I decided on my primary specialty because I felt that there were far too many instances of the "little guy" getting harmed or taken advantage of by large companies and corporations.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

We encourage all of our clients to actively participate to the extent that they desire in preparing and prosecuting their cases along with us.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?


Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?


Donald S. Edgar

I was an Assistant Professor at Sonoma State University from 1989 to 1991 and an Extern Clerk to the Hon. A. Wallace Tashima, of the U.S. District Court, Central District of California in 1987. I was an associate attorney with a large national law firm before starting my own practice.

During law school I realized that there is way more to practicing law than just making money. As a lawyer there are so many ways that I can truly help people resolve their problems.

Our unique strength and expertise is our ability to work quickly and competently to seek out the very best possible results and outcomes in a timely fashion.

My style is hardworking, diligent, and I leave no stone unturned.

Personal interests:

Since I started this firm, I have managed to exercise a minimum of 3-4 hours per week, 52 weeks per year, and still continue to do so. I enjoy drinking fine wines and eating gourmet foods.
