About Edward Stark

With a strong professional foundation in law, science, government, and academia, Edward C. Stark is not just a partner at a top-tier law firm, Cron, Israels & Stark, in Santa Monica, but also one of California’s leading attorneys covering torts, medical malpractice, business litigation, and professional licensure defense.
Ed’s legal specialty is more than just a profession. It is a passion that stems back to his humble beginnings in the Bronx, in New York City. Like many young men of his generation, he spent countless hours on a baseball diamond, dreaming of eventually playing Major League Baseball. Although Ed’s dreams shifted to science and, later, to the law, he never lost his competitive spirit. Paired with his quest for knowledge and his personable, compassionate—yet firm—approach to his legal practice, he is today regarded as a “major league” player in the law.

After attending New York’s famed Bronx High School of Science, Ed spent his undergraduate years at City College of New York (part of the City University system), where he obtained his B.A. and M.A. in Chemistry, with a minor in psychology. Always wanting to eventually live in Southern California, he then moved west, where he obtained his Ph. D. in Organic Chemistry at the University of California, San Diego. Following that, he qualified to receive a coveted spot in a NASA program for scientist-astronauts to perform experiments on space shuttles and at orbiting space stations.

However, his passion for serving the greater good on Earth compelled him to change course and attend Southwestern Law School, in Los Angeles, where he graduated cum laude (top 10% of the class). Prior to embarking on his legal career, and during his early years of practice, Ed embraced his scientific, academic career as a Professor of Chemistry at Los Angeles City College between 1977 and 1990 and authored the college-level textbook Essential Chemistry (London: Collier Macmillan Publishers, 1979), which has been used at universities around the world.
