    I wholeheartedly endorse this Edwin and his partner, Maggie Heim. I found them to be tenacious, detail oriented and bright. Despite fighting tooth and nail on many issues, Edwin never made any issue personal. He was at all times highly professional and courteous. Edwin was very effective in court with the judge and his staff. He is able to bring cost-effective service to even the most complicated commercial cases. He never backs down from a fight he believes in, even against the "big" firms. If I needed a commercial litigator to represent me, I would not hesitate to hire him.
