Attorney Profile

Attorney William R. Cumming is the founder of Cumming & Associates, APLC, located in Costa Mesa, California. Serving the rights and interests of a diverse range of clients throughout Orange, Riverside, Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties, Mr. Cumming provides exceptional representation and support to individuals, small-business owners and corporate clients who have legal needs involving any of the following:

·        Corporate law and transactions

·        Commercial litigation

·        Real estate law and transactions

A 1994 graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles, Mr. Cumming taught English in Japan for a while before enrolling in Loyola Law School, Los Angeles. He obtained his Juris Doctor in 1998, and The State Bar of California admitted him to practice the following year. He is also admitted to practice before all of California's U.S. District Courts as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

Before establishing his own practice, Mr. Cumming gained extensive experience in a variety of legal areas serving a partner for a national law firm, where he focused primarily on corporate transactions, business disputes, intellectual property, employment law and real estate. Not long after he founded Cumming & Associates, APLC, America entered the Great Recession, and the number of bankruptcy filings increased dramatically across the country.

Mr. Cumming used this opportunity to help those in need by providing invaluable bankruptcy services, and he has helped hundreds of clients find the relief they seek for their overwhelming debt. He also represents creditors, and he has significant experience handling bankruptcy litigation matters.

Throughout his career, Mr. Cumming has earned much respect from his peers, and he has received several awards and honors for his professionalism and service, including recognition from OC Metro Magazine as one of the top attorneys in Orange County. Widely regarded as a leader in his field, he has served on the adjunct legal faculty at Trinity Law School, and he has conducted numerous lectures and seminars on real estate law, bankruptcy and other subjects.

He is a member of the American Bar Association, the Orange County Bar Association, the Association of Business Trial Lawyers and the Orange County chapter of the Federal Bar Association, among his other professional affiliations.
