Stay away from this lawyer. You are just throwing your money away. I took him to court for failing to keep me informed of the law and I won. Took over 2 years but well worth the wait and money just to show that he did me wrong.
I was far beyond disappointed with this Attorneyâ€™s performance. On numerous occasions I called the office with an important question, my calls would be returned days and sometimes a week or more later. Once my case came to trial I was horrified at how unprepared he was. I took the time to write out any viable information I thought could help in my custody case. I do not believe any of it was read or considered by Mr. Edwards, for he fervently flipped through the pages the day of the trial stammering and stumbling over his words. Immediately following the loss of my case Mr. Edwards tells me, donâ€™t worry, we can appeal. Personally I want my case tried properly the first time. What I expected was a confident well prepared attorney to fight for me, I received the complete opposite.
This person strung my case out for far too long refusing to follow my guidance. Documents almost always missed pages and had gross errors. Final separation agreement had false information and the excuse was that, "it was our "boilerplate" document and that item is in there on all of these things" I asked, begged, and pleaded for him to push my case to trial but he wouldn't. He somehow managed to milk $5500 out of me and I ended with the EXACT amount I had coming to me before I hired this man. I filed two complaints with the Virginia State Bar and likely will file another regarding his conduct. Towards the end of the matter-I felt more like he was the person I was fighting not my wife's lawyers.
He sounded real impressive when I hired him. I'm retired Army, so I thought there was some type of brotherhood. Yeah-don't go kid yourself on that one.
Once we reached the amount I told him I didn't want to go past, he all at once wanted to settle.
