I hired Edward 1-3 years ago.
Edward handled my Tax matter.
I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.
I found Mr. Leyden's information online through Avvo, emailed him and received a phone response almost immediately. He was extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and caring. He listened to my concerns and made time to see me the next day. Mr. Leyden relieved the anxiety I had been under with an IRS issue looming, explained what I could do myself and how to do so, and in general saved me from overwhelming fear. He was kind, understanding, and reassured me that he was available if I should need further help, and that he would work with us with regard to payment. Mr. Leyden has the highest recommendation and praise from me, for showing compassion, and giving his time, he will always be first in my book. It's rare to find someone who will help out this way. Any IRS issue can be an extremely stressful situation, and this is the most stressful I have encountered. If you are looking for an attorney who cares and will help, Edward Leyden is the real deal. I cannot express how grateful I am to Mr. Leyden, after seeing him I slept for the first time in weeks. Thank you Mr. Leyden! Gratefully, Cindy
I endorse this lawyer. Ed is one of the most intelligent and dedicated attorneys with which I have had the pleasure of working. Always ready with an appreciation of the finer points of applying procedural rules, Ed's substantive knowledge is always a heartbeat away.
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I specialize in employment law and Ed Leyden as part of his tax prac tice has developed a speciality in advising employment lawyers and client on tax issues arising in the context of employment law. I and my clients have relied on his advice. In many instances, his analysis has been critical to our achieving settlements when the parties are in disagreement about the tax implications relating to a settlement or verdict. Ed's expertise is reflected in the fact that he has served as Chair of the ABA's tax committee relating to employment law. I am well aware that many of my employment law colleagues hold him in high esteem. Beyond his expertise, Ed is very personable and makes working with him a pleasure.
