  • Nathan Charles Wolf

    I am happy to endorse Paul Edger as a fine attorney who is a pleasure to deal with in the handling of cases. He is an advocate for his clients and an advocate for justice. But Paul is fair and compassionate in dealing with opposing attorneys and opposing parties. Paul's area of practice is high in conflict and he handles his cases gracefully and honestly. Again, I am honored to have the opportunity to endorse Paul Edger!
