Edwin represented me in a very complex divorce case. He listened and often comforted. He understood me and believed in me. He fought hard and represented me well. He kept me constantly appraised of what the upcoming steps were, and I never felt like I was just one of many cases on his docket. He took a very real interest in my case, and I know that my future and my happiness was a big deal to him. When it was all done, one of the people in the courtroom took me aside and said that he had been in courts for decades, but had rarely seen someone as good as Edwin.
TYPICALLY PEOPLE ONLY WRITE REVIEWS WHEN THEY ARE NOT HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE. I DECIDED TO TAKE SOME TIME TO LET PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THE EXCELLENT SERVICES I RECEIVED FROM MR. SAGINAR WITH RESPECT TO A DOMESTIC RELATIONS CASE. HE WAS EXCELLENT. HE DEFINITELY WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND IN THIS CASE AND WAS EXTREMELY THOROUGH IN ALL PROCEEDINGS RELATED TO THE CASE. HE TRULY CARES ABOUT HIS CLIENTS. HE IS NOT LIKE A TYPICAL "DIVORCE" LAWYER THAT ONLY CARES ABOUT GETTING THEIR FEE AND GETTING AS MANY CASES AS POSSIBLE. ALTHOUGH THE OUTCOME WAS NOT 100% IN OUR FAVOR IT WAS NOT DUE TO A LACK OF EFFORT ON MR. SAGINAR'S PART. I AM IN A PROFESSION SIMILAR TO AN ATTORNEY AND I ONLY HOPE THAT I REPRESENT MY CLIENTS IN THE SAME MANNER AS HE DID. I CANNOT IMAGINE SOMEONE FEELING THAT HE DID NOT GIVE THE MATTER HIS FULL ATTENTION.
I have personally worked with Edwin Saginar for over 18 years, and have recommended his legal counsel to countless potential clients for both Family Law related issues and Criminal Defense issues, including complicated appeals. I also have the expertise to distinguish the attributes that make a good trial lawyer, having worked in the legal field since 1987. I can say without hesitation that Mr. Saginar is one of the best trial lawyers I've had the privelege of knowing. I can further remark, in reviewing other posts on this forum, that in every court case someone wins and someone loses, and while the skill and performance of the legal counsel on both sides is important, it is not the defining factor in the outcome. There are thousands of clients out there unhappy with their outcomes, but it does not mean they had poor representation. It means they availed themselves of our judicial process, and despite their attorney's performance, they did not prevail. I recommend this attorney highly.
Mr. Saginar has represented me in several issues relating to Child Support, Custody and visitation issues, and attributed peripheral actions. The process lasted several years. During that time Mr. Saginar never failed to meet his obligations and responsibilities. He was supportive, constructive in his advise and actions, and managed to gain ground ultimately prevailing in an extremely adversarial battle. He is dedicated and passionate regarding his profession. I doubt seriously I would have the gained ground and relationship with my son I have today had it not been for the undeniable work put forth by Mr. Saginar. Prior to our relationship, I hired and fired three attorneys. Mr. Saginar was the first attorney who actually listened to me. I have known this gentleman for 15 years and have since had several legal issues review and implemented by him, all handled with the same expertise and compassion that was present when he was hired.
