We needed an attorney in the bay area for a real estate matter, but don't live there so we were unsure where to turn. We received a very positive referral from someone in the area to Ed. From the beginning he was very professional and attentive. Phone calls and emails were always returned quicker than expected. He was also VERY knowledgeable on the law relating to the issues involved in the dispute - hours of research were not necessary, which we really appreciated. He gave sound, objective advice and was very fair with his billing practices. I would absolutely reach out to Ed should I need further representation in the bay area in the future. Thank you Ed.

Mr. Blum was quick to meet, get an understanding of the situation, and without delay, displayed a willingness to stand strong and negotiate the dispute. His efforts allowed us to proceed and avoid possible third party damages.

I am losing my home. And these days (Nov 2012) despite some improvement reported by the media, the banks are still very inefficient, unhelpful and greedy.
Through my real estate broker, I got connected to attorney Ed Blum. For the first time I was able to get straight answers to all my questions regarding alternatives to foreclosure, credit impact, recourse, tax consequences and more. Mr Blum armed me with a validated (and where needed, a corrected) understanding of how banks work/think and in my case: how the process of a shortsale really works. I would highly recommend Mr Blum's services for a very tangible reason: working with him has already kept money in my pockets as opposed to the bank's. Those of you familiar with my situation will surely know the disclaimer at the beginning of each phone call with the bank "we are attempting to collect a debt and any/all information you give us will be used for that purpose". That disclaimer is there to clarify to you that the rep's friendliness should not be mistaken for empathy or generosity by the bank. Well, when you are up against a large financial corporation, it's good to have an expert on your side. One who's knowledgeable, experienced and not intimidated by banks. For me, Attorney Ed Blum is that guy. My only regret is that I did not contact him sooner.

Edward Blum provided exceptional service for my case regarding negotiations on a purchase of new construction. His attention to detail and responsiveness, coupled with his wealth of technical knowledge was a tremendous resource. The subtleties in my situation involved both issues with the builder and the builder's preferred lender, requiring a precise method for generating the results needed to successfully close the deal, and do it on time. Mr. Blum provided expertise from both the legal standpoint as well as in negotiations, and I was extremely pleased with the outcome.
