With this conference we plan to bridge the gap between doctors and lawyers, and educate both as it relates to chronic pain syndromes, orthopedic & spine injuries and litigation. In two days, top tier lawyers and doctors will provide you with the tools needed to effectively communicate complex injuries in simple terms. This will not be like any conference that you have ever attended. We believe conferences should be fun and enjoyable for the family. Not only will you grow as a professional but there will be live music entertainment, fun for all ages and exceptional networking opportunities between the plaintiff bar, defense bar, and the medical field; this conference will have it all. Most importantly, you can feel good knowing that all proceeds will be donated to a non-profit charity.

Edwin’s passion for the law began as he worked at the Superior Court and observed countless people unable to effectively fight for their rights, lost in a complicated and intimidating justice system. He had the fortune of working directly in the courtroom as a Court Attendant and Court Clerk, observing over 100 trials under several judges.
Edwin has a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice, graduating summa cum laude from Arizona State University. He enrolled as a part-time evening student with the Western State College of Law, where he was accepted with a full scholarship. Throughout law school, Edwin worked as a certified law clerk during the day, attending classes in the evening and maintaining the number-one rank in his class. He also served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Western State Law Review, a member of the Deans’ Circle and Distinguished Honor Roll, and has earned a Certificate of Distinguished Public Service through his dedication to giving back to the community. Edwin was also invited to the Honors Moot Court Team and was selected to be a Deans’ Fellow, where he served as a mentor to incoming 1L students during their first year. He then graduated summa cum laude, the valedictorian of his graduating class, and went on to pass the bar exam and join the firm as an attorney.
Outside of the office, Edwin enjoys spending time with his much better looking wife, chasing around his adorable daughter, devouring California burritos, and catching up on the latest issues of Justice League.
