My initial contact with Mr. Calvin A. Edwards, Jr. was one on skepticism. But once Mr. Edwards, Jr. combed through my allegations and proposed the best solution/s on my behalf, I’m delighted and truly thankful he argued my case. Through his clear, precise and effective legal expertise, I'm now left with a sentencing decision which I can live with.
Looking back in retrospect, I realize that the disposition of my case could have been more desirable if I had solely depended on Mr. Edwards, litigation knowledge. I was looking at a lifelong prison sentence with no chance of parole, but again, thanks to Mr. Calvin A. Edwards, Jr. my sleepless nights are less common now. I would highly recommend Mr. Edwards to potential clients. He was and is a Great Lawyer! D.M.B.
Calvin Edwards Jr.is a lawyer that want you to listen and trust his skills as your attorney.He took a very high profile federal case that i was involved in and my out come wasn't looking the brightest.Once he came to visit me i was been held on an no bond situation. With in a month or so after receiving a percented of the $15000 that he was charging i was home with my family.And over the couse of this case he has work to get me from facing a sentence that can carry well over 6yrs. To a low sentence even a possibility of probation.So i would like to say if you have a friend or family member that need and a attorney or lawyer.How ever u would want to label him he will work with them and for them all they have to do is listen. And hold on to his coat tail and i am sure they will be happy as well. He kept me informed from our 1st visit tell the end weather in person by email or text.
I worked with Calvin Edwards for three years. My case begun in 2009 and I was sentenced in 2012. I was indicted on federal drug conspiracy. Calvin worked hard, he was consistent and I trusted every move he made. I paid him $20,000 and his service was well worth every dollar. He did not allow me to plea out to the mandatory minimum (10 years). Once Mr. Edwards presented going to trial to the prosecutor, I was offered a lesser charge that only holds a max of three years prison time. I was sentenced to three years probation. I will definitely recommend Mr. Edwards because his diligent work has me free with my children and I did not cooperate with the Federal Government to receive the sentence that I was given.
Cavin is a verygood attorney he put his cleints first. He took sons case even though we did not have the money at the time. He kept us informed and up to date about the case. He is kind and caring
and will his best to represent you. He allowed us to pay him in installments never pressuring us.
I know that he would not take money without earning it. Need a lawyer I recommend Calvin Edwards.
My family paid him $5000.00 to represent our son and he never even filed any paperwork with the courts. He was referred by a family member so I trusted him and he took advantage of us. This happened in 2008 and everysince then he has been promising to pay the money back. I agreed because of his relationship with my family member. He has never given a dime back and our son still has the arrest hanging over his head all this time even though he has never been re-arrested since. Please beware of him because he is large in stature and can be very convincing and intimidating. Everything that was accomplished via the case I did.
I would not reccommend this attorney as he has taken $400.00 dollars from our family knowing that he was suspended. Had I not googled the correct name, Calvin instead of Kevin we would continued to be in the dark! We will be taking him to court as he has not returned our phone calls, text messages or emails!! Calvin stated that if we were'nt satisfied, he would return the money. After informing him of not needing his services he did not return our calls.We are still trying to get in touch with him today 3 February 2011.
