Found Ed Blum by luck looking doing some googling. Was very straightforward and honest. Did not take advantage of me at all, which I got the sense a different lawyer I talked to was trying to. Ed told me what I could do just fine on my own, and I was glad I found him.
Ed Blum helped me come out of the darkest days of despair in my life. I had been partying in Hollywood, and all was on point, until I decided to drive home. I was pulled over, and what began as a great night turned into one of my worse nights. I did not know what to do, but found solace in meeting with Ed Blum. He is a very knowledgeable attorney, who related well to me and no doubt all his other clients. He is a A+ defense attorney!
We called him to handle a criminal case, where the chances of the case being dropped are very high. He met us at a location for the initial consultation (job interview), we decided to hire him. During that time, he took a couple phone calls, returned VMs, and wrote a demand letter requesting personal property back, which we did get back on our own. We later decided we no longer require his services, the bill came in and we were charged $625.00 for the job interview, (initial consultation), which most places state the initial consultation is always free. "I Am Waiting To Give You a FREE Consultation and Evaluation of Your Case", verbatum from his website!! Additional charges were $200 to write the letter, and $400 for phone calls. Be careful with this lawyer.
This last week I needed an attorney in Los Angeles for an emergency situation impacting both my wife and myself. The situation is a little personal, but Attorney Blum not only went to the county for us (saving us a major hassle of driving at least 600 miles round trip), but kept me on his cell phone and even talked to supervisors to get the situation handled. He was very calm when dealing with the people, some that obviously didn't know how to handle the situation and even ended up getting a supervisor to fix our situation. I was in the unique position of being able to hear how he handled most of it while I was on hold on his cell phone several times. In summary, he was professional, looked for ways to fix the situation and very easy to deal with. I would not hesitate to send my mother, sister, wife or father to him with any legal problem.
Mr. Blum is on the ball and seems well connected.
He and his resources were invaluable in winning my case.
