Joshua Edwards is a family law and criminal defense attorney in Arizona who strives to give each and every one of his client’s a voice. It is Josh’s belief that all too often, the legal system charges forward without stopping to hear and truly understand the situation placed before them. When this occurs, individuals are left feeling hopeless and frustrated.
This is why Josh focuses his representation around what each of his client’s goals are and what each client designates as success. No two cases are exactly the same and not everyone is seeking the same outcome. By taking the time to truly listen to his client’s, Josh is able to better understand how to assist them in their unique situation.
Josh believes that in order to be a truly effective attorney there must be a great deal of listening and communication between the attorney and client. For this reason, Josh makes himself available to his Clients 24 hours a day 7 days a week because no one knows when issues will arise or when law enforcement will be contacting them. No one should ever have to wait until normal business hours to get help from their attorney when they are in the midst of a crisis.
