San Diego County









Judge Edgar A. Luce is senior member of the well known firm of Luce & Swing, of San Diego. He is a native of California, and was born in 1881 at San Diego, the son of Judge Moses A. Luce. After receiving his preparatory educational training in public schools, Judge Luce entered Stanford University, which conferred on him the A. B. degree in 1905. His legal training was obtained at Stanford University and through private study under the preceptorship of his father, and he was admitted to the California bar in 1905.

For four years Judge Luce engaged in practice as a member of the firm of Luce, Sloane & Luce. In 1909 he became Deputy City Attorney of San Diego, and after serving in this capacity for a year, entered into partnership with his father under the firm name of Luce & Luce. This firm was dissolved upon his appointment as Judge of the Superior Court of San Diego County in 1919, in which office he amply demonstrated his thorough knowledge of the law and absolute impartiality of judgment. Since leaving the bench in January, 1925, he has been senior member of the firm of Luce & Swing.

Judge Luce holds membership in the American Bar Association, State Bar of California, and San Diego Bar Association, as well as the Native Sons of the Golden West. He is also a member of the Elks, University Club, Cuyamaca Club and San Diego Country Club. He married Carma Coppard in 1923, and they have two children, Edgar A., Jr., and Gordon C.
