EDGAR BARRAZA

Associate

Edgar focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation.  He approaches every task with dedication and attention to detail to meet all client needs.  Before joining RBF Law, Edgar served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Andrew P. McCallin in Denver District Court.

During law school, Edgar worked as a law clerk in various prominent law firms throughout the Denver-Metro area, assisting in different aspects of the litigation process in cases at the state and federal level.  In addition, he completed externships at the Colorado Court of Appeals, with the Honorable Jerry N. Jones, and at the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, with the Honorable Robert E. Blackburn.  These experiences provided Edgar with a thorough understanding of effective litigation techniques and the decision-making process, skills necessary for the demands of his current practice.

Edgar has always been committed to giving back to his community.  Throughout his law school career, Edgar was a member of U.S. Judge Christine Arguello’s Dream Team, a group of attorneys and law students that travel across Colorado to provide presentations to young students on the importance of pursuing a higher education.  Edgar is also a committee member and co-founder of Law School – Yes We Can, a program that helps students from underrepresented backgrounds gain access to a law school education by assigning them attorney mentors and educational workshops.
