Robert H. Brumfield III
Mr. Brumfield has more than 28 years of legal experience. In 2013, he received a “Top Lawyers in California” award, which is based upon peer review and the highest ethical standards. This year he also received a “Client Distinction Award” from Lexis and Martindale-Hubbell. This award is based upon quality of service, overall value, responsiveness, and communication ability. Only 1% of all attorneys are even eligible for this award.
Mr. Hagan was selected to the 2015 Southern California Rising Stars list, published by Los Angeles and Super Lawyers magazine. The list comprises the region’s top 2.5 percent of lawyers who are younger than age 40. He was also one of only two Bakersfield attorneys selected by Super Lawyers magazine’s inaugural “Up-And-Coming 100 List” which is comprised of the magazine’s 100 highest rated lawyers under 40 in southern California. The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.
In his practice, Mr. Brumfield has represented numerous private businesses and individuals in the areas of general business law, real estate, construction, oil and gas, litigation, trusts and estates, insolvency and bankruptcy. His experience allows him to recognize potential disputes in all areas of representation and can afford you the opportunity to avoid unnecessary and costly litigation. By virtue of that experience, Mr. Brumfield serves as a mediator, handling mediations in all of the areas in which he practices. With civil cases having less courtroom availability due to budgetary constraints, alternative dispute resolution methods are gaining importance and our firm is committed to furthering this out-of-court resolution process.
Mr. Brumfield has practiced law in Bakersfield since 1986. Before forming this firm, he was a principal attorney in a large regional law firm for 5 years. Previously, he was a partner and managing partner in a full-service business and civil litigation firm that grew to 20 attorneys.
