Carly L. Edson
Born and raised in Palmdale, California, Ms. Edson attended the University of Southern California, graduating with honors, with a Bachelor of Arts in English, in 2010. She then worked at Booth & Koskoff for two years as a law clerk, during which time she discovered a passion for representing catastrophically-injured people and became a very valuable part of our trial team.
Anxious to start her legal career as soon as possible, Ms. Edson entered Southwestern Law School’s rigorous accelerated SCALE program, in which students complete three years of law school courses in just two years. In addition to her regular course load, she was a member of the Trial Advocacy Honors Program and worked as an extern at the L.A. County District Attorney’s office, gaining valuable courtroom experience. Ms. Edson received the very highest grade in six of her courses and graduated magna cum laude in 2014.
Ms. Edson re-joined Booth & Koskoff, as an attorney, right after law school. Because of her prior experience at the firm and her exemplary academic background, she has been able to jump right in and take on responsibilities and a workload well beyond what is typical for a young lawyer. In addition to handling her own caseload, she has played a key role in assisting Richard Koskoff achieve a multi-million dollar settlement in Mikayla O. v. County of Riverside, a foster abuse case.
In her spare time, Ms. Edson enjoys cheering for USC football, reading and spending time with her husband and family.
