Robert H. Brumfield III

Mr. Brumfield has more than 30 years of legal experience. He regularly receives a “Top Lawyers in California” award, which is based upon peer review and the highest ethical standards. In 2013 through 2017, he also has received the “Client Distinction Award” from 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.

In his practice, Mr. Brumfield has represented numerous private businesses and individuals in the areas of business law, all aspects of real estate transactions, trusts and estates, water law, oil and gas, insolvency and bankruptcy, and litigation in each of those areas. 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. 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.
