I have known Edward X. Clinton for many years as a friend, colleague and client. His legal knowledge and ability are outstanding. His training includes a degree from Harvard Law School. time as a clerk for a Federal Court judge and years as an attorney at some of the finest law firms in the country. He really cares about his clients and what is best for them. His has a wide background in litigation, appeals and corporate law. His work for me was excellent, timely and very reasonable in cost.
Hiring this lawyer was the worst mistake I ever made. He was retained to represent me in a post-decree child support hearing. He never got the discovery he needed and the judge realized he was unprepared for the hearing so it got continued. However, the judge was mad and also cut the child support to less than half on an "emergency" basis. Only problem is that Ed withdrew a couple of weeks before the continued hearing date and left me without a lawyer, with a huge cut in the child support, and no money or time to hire anyone else. Worst part? He then came after me for thousand of dollars in attorney fees. I really don't think he knows what he is doing, but I was duped by the high brow degrees.
