About me

I am a board certified real estate attorney who believes there is no substitute for knowledge and experience when addressing the complex legal concerns surrounding real estate.  Our experience and expertise in Florida real estate law is what makes The Edwards Law Firm second to none.


Our aim is simple when serving our clients: we strive to achieve each client's objectives. It is this passion for client service that has led us to be named as one of the Florida’s top real estate lawyers by both our clients and our colleagues.


We help homeowners in foreclosure resolve their real estate problems.  We fight for property owners' rights.  We provide advice and counsel to real estate brokers and their agents in negotiating and closing transactions.


Most of all, we serve home buyers and sellers all across Florida. Our experience will ensure a successful transaction, whether it’s for the purchase of a first home or for a million dollar beach front estate.


If you’re in need of a real estate lawyer, look no further than the knowledge, service, and results offered by The Edwards Law Firm, PL.
