Me. Edwards is a rare blend of experienced, solid representation with a good heart for what is good over the long term for his clients. He listens with the ear of a counselor and fights with conviction to get true justice. He is a one of a kind in his field and respected by all others in his field which says a lot. He is truthful about the reality and limitations of the system and doesn't make false promises to get a big retainer check. He doesn't over litigate to drive up your bill but doesn't back down on fighting for what is right. He is the most trustworthy and honest attorney I know. You will ALWAYS be in good hands with Mr Edwards.
I agree with the former reviewers. The one call that was returned he was unprepared and distracted when I was asking important questions. No return calls. No follow through. No response to emails.
I am the "single" mother of two special needs children, both with anxiety disorders, one with autism. After poor representation out of state, three years of a custody/visitation battle at the expense of my children's health and wellbeing (hospitalizations at Ridgeview), John offered to research my options for changing jurisdiction to Georgia, free of charge. I spoke with him in his office for a free consultation, at which time he informed me of the measures that needed to be addressed by my current attorney in the other state. He offered to work hourly with no retainer fee to help my current attorney file the appropriate action to have the case moved to my children's home state to cut down on the stress for my special needs household. He was compassionate, factual, and fair. He did not try to promise me the moon, but told me what I could expect...the good and the bad. If you want someone that has knowledge, backbone, and devotion to the best interest of his clients choose John Edwards.
Did the same to me as the former review. Took my money, did not return calls, never did anything that was promised, prayed on my desperation & vulnerability for my case to be settled, & despite leaving multiple messages, not 1 returned call or email for months. Also insulted my character, not once upheld it.
Stole my money. Did not perform services requested. Ignored emails. Fired paralegal without informing me and emails I sent to her werent addressed. Didnt do anything in my case and wouldnt refund my retainer fee. Made up a fake bill. I didnt even want to give 1 star but I had to. Beware of this lawyer.
