Erwin Adler has a life outside of the office.  When not writing briefs, Erwin can be found running in one of the local 5Ks or 10Ks scheduled in Southern California.  Erwin notes, "While running may be competitive, it is about as simple and basic as you can get."  If not in a race, he will likely be seen in the audience of one of the local theaters watching a drama or a musical comedy.

Before becoming involved in 5Ks, 10Ks, and a fan of the stage, Erwin was an honors graduate of the University of Michigan and member of Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi.  He attended Harvard Law School under a Harvard Scholarship and Dewaters Fellowship.  Having received a J.D. from Harvard, he went on to receive an advanced degree in law (LL.M.) from the University of Michigan.

Erwin has a broad range of experience and has tried coverage and bad faith cases.  In terms of defending cases assigned by carriers, he has been involved in a broad variety of other types of litigation.  These cases range from personal injury litigation to claims arising out of improper advertising.  They also run the gamut from trademark infringement to defective construction claims.  Erwin has also been specifically retained to handle a wide variety of appeals after trial counsel has received an adverse judgment.  These appeals include a disparate variety of topics and thus range from basic issues such as construction defect litigation to such unusual topics as constitutional limits to a court's ability to interpret an insurance policy.

As a result of his activities, Erwin has served as a Vice Chairman of the Appellate Advocacy Subcommittee of the American Bar Association and is currently listed in Who's Who in America, Who's Who in American Law, and Who's Who in California.  As described elsewhere, he has made presentations on various legal issues affecting the insurance industry at in-house seminars for claims professionals and to professional claims organizations in the domestic and London markets.  Additionally, the Regents of the University of California have selected him to be on its teaching faculty for the California Continuing Education of the Bar and he served in that capacity for other professional groups.
