Our History

In 1995, attorneys Sidney Hamburg, Barry Edwards and Gregg Martin founded the firm, and, in 2003, Steven Karic joined as the firm’s fourth partner. Over the years, we have grown and diversified while still maintaining the efficiency and personal touch of a smaller, boutique-style firm.

Each of our firm’s partners has more than three decades of legal experience. Our partners’ combined expertise in law has allowed the firm to evolve into a highly-regarded business and real estate practice. 

Our Exceptional Client Relationships

While our areas of expertise are multifaceted, our client relationships truly set us apart. Providing one-on-one attention to each client is built into our model. Our professional staff is small, experienced and expertly focused. This focus ensures that our clients know their lawyers. Instead of speaking with several partners, multiple associates and various paralegals, our clients receive prompt attention from dedicated professionals with whom they have developed personal and confidential relationships, and in whom they have reposed their trust and confidence.

When you choose Hamburg, Karic, Edwards & Martin, you get highly experienced attorneys who provide top quality representation and who personally connect with each of our clients while finding solutions to their legal needs. 

Our Diverse Practice Areas

Our firm specializes in diverse practice areas ranging from business litigation, real estate and construction law to employment disputes and trust and estate planning.

Our attorneys regularly litigate in both state and federal courts, as well as alternative dispute resolution tribunals (such as JAMS, ADR Services and the American Arbitration Association) with an emphasis on complex business, real estate, construction, entertainment, and employment litigation. We also have extensive experience in real estate transactions, including purchase, sale and leasing of commercial, industrial, mixed use, multi-family and residential properties. We also advise our clients in matters related to business formation, governance, estate planning and probate.

Our Pledge to You

Legal matters require fierce advocacy; however, we understand that clients also want cost-effective and practical solutions that meet their business needs. 

We pledge to provide the highest level of legal services while addressing your goals and needs. We will present creative and common sense legal options while maintaining an ongoing dialogue with our clients to ensure we address and meet your objectives in a timely, cost-effective and efficient manner.
