Edgar is an associate in the Financial Services practice, joining the firm from the Northern District of Illinois Bankruptcy Court, where he was a judicial clerk for the Honorable Timothy A. Barnes. Through his clerkship experience, he gained knowledge on the complexities of the Bankruptcy Code, the Federal Bankruptcy Rules and how they apply in commercial actions, including Chapter 11 reorganization and liquidation matters.


Especially advantageous to his clients, he provides experience in contested matters dealing with the automatic stay, navigating the claim litigation process, obtaining adequate protection of his clients’ interests in collateral, negotiating fair terms in debtors’ plans of reorganization and ensuring debtors are adhering to their duties and obligations under the Bankruptcy Code.


In addition to representing financial institutions in bankruptcy matters, Edgar also focuses his practice on representing creditors in foreclosure proceedings and breach of contract litigation. Edgar ensures that his clients are kept promptly informed at every stage of a matter and will be with them from the beginning to the end of their case.


Edgar believes the practice of law is most rewarding and fulfilling because, on a daily basis, he is able to challenge himself intellectually. To Edgar, every matter presents an opportunity to excel in what he brings to the table and allows him to expand his knowledge. He is passionate about learning and spends his morning commutes reading filings in and analyses of interesting legal cases.


Edgar relishes starting his day in the gym and when not in the office, he enjoys regular movie nights with his family. He also enjoys watching informative and educational videos on a range of subjects, including philosophy, religion, history, science, psychology and, of course, analyses of legal cases.
