Experience

Edward (Eddie) Hovannisian is a steadfast personal injury attorney at Carpenter & Zuckerman. He is passionate about effecting meaningful change rather than simply representing the interests of insurance companies and entrenched financial institutions. He dedicates himself to protecting people’s rights, enforcing corporate responsibilities, and improving society as a whole.

Eddie joined Carpenter & Zuckerman in 2022 as an associate attorney, strengthening the firm’s existing A-Team of trial lawyers. Early in his career, Eddie made an intentional decision to pursue avenues of law that would be both personally and professionally fulfilling. 

Prior to joining Carpenter & Zuckerman, Eddie worked as an insurance defense attorney at a national law firm. There, he gained practical experience handling various aspects of civil litigation cases, including law and motion, legal research, and written discovery. In addition, Eddie second-chaired his first trial while working for the firm.

Leading up to his passage of the bar exam, Eddie worked at a prominent California plaintiffs’ law firm, drafting detailed multi-million-dollar mediation demand packages for claimants who were victims of the California wildfires.

When not working on his clients’ cases, Eddie enjoys camping, cooking, and spending time with his large family and close friends. 

Education

Eddie earned his J.D. from Loyola Law School in 2021, where he served on the governing board of the Armenian Law Students Association and participated in community-facing pro bono initiatives.

While in law school, Eddie externed at the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan with the Honorable Bernard Friedman. There, Eddie honed his effective written and oral advocacy skills and gained an appreciation for the influential role of bench memos in the judge’s ultimate decisions.  

As a Los Angeles native, Eddie proudly attended UCLA for his undergraduate education, graduating magna cum laude with a B.A. in History.

Associations
