After nearly 15 years as a defense attorney, Samuel R.W. Price joins the Law Office of Barry L. Edzant as a partner, where he now represents plaintiffs in personal injury, lemon law, and employment cases, and corporate clients in business litigation matters. Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Price’s practice focused on complex business disputes and defending employment, construction-defect, personal injury, and product liability matters. It is this extensive and varied background that gives Mr. Price and his plaintiff clients a unique advantage of understanding and anticipating the defense’s perspective.
He has represented clients in both state and federal courts throughout the State of California, in mediations and arbitrations, and in administrative hearings before the Contractors State License Board and the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board, among others. Mr. Price also has broad experience in bankruptcy matters, having represented both business entities and individuals in proceedings under Chapters 7, 11 and 13, and both debtors and creditors in bankruptcy litigation.
Mr. Price has been repeatedly recognized by Super Lawyers® Magazine as a Rising Star, an honor received by less than 2.5% of attorneys in the state.
With his transition to representing plaintiffs, Mr. Price has recently traded-in his peer-nominated membership in the prestigious, invitation-only organization International Association of Defense Counsel and his membership in the Association of Business Trial Lawyers, to join the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles and the Consumer Attorneys of California. He is also a member of the San Fernando Valley Bar Association, where he served as a Trustee for many years, and the Santa Clarita Valley Bar Association, where he was on the Executive Board for nearly a decade, including two years as President.
Prior to practicing law, Mr. Price obtained considerable experience in the construction industry while providing project management and skilled trade services for a general contractor. He also spent several years as the marketing coordinator for an award-winning multimedia production company and was a freelance audio/visual technician for many nationally- and internationally-televised sports broadcasts.
Mr. Price spent much of his formative time living in Boston, where he attended Boston College and Boston College Law School (Go Eagles!). He is an avid sports fan, and especially passionate about Boston teams (the real Title Town), particularly the Red Sox and Patriots.
Mr. Price currently resides in the Santa Clarita Valley with his wife, Jenna, and their senior “Pibble” mix, Elsa (and he will always point out that she was adopted with that name—they did not choose to name her after a Disney princess).
