I've had Mr. Edgar for the past two years and he's been a great attorney. I am involved with a very tough custody battle and he's always been there for appearances fighting for my children and myself. His staff is extremely friendly and hard working. I most likely will retain him to the end. I certainly recommend him as a good family law attorney.
Protip: Best thing to do in family law battles is make it about the children and what's best for them. Refrain from fighting just to get back at the other party. Fight for what's right and good for the children. They are the one's that will ultimately lose. Be the better, honest and forthright party and it will be what's best for the children.
My personal experience with Mr Edgar has been wonderful he helped me get visitation of my daughter 3 years ago and as of noi I don't just visit her. In our last ct appearance I got full phisical custody of my kid n 80% custody.Thanks Mr Edgar for helping me every step of the way.
I Hired Mr Edgar to help me with custody and a move away order for my Daughter.
The moment I met Mr Edgar I had a weight lifted off me, Just talking to him I knew he was truly going to do all he could to help me. He was Human and not like a lot of Attorneys who see Dollar signs instead of a person in real need of help.
Mr Edgar was Honest and Blunt with me, He told me the way it was going to go and told me right away that a move away order was almost never granted, Well I will say that this was not the case for me with Mr Edgar As my Attorney, I was Granted the move away order and was able to move 2200 miles away with my daughter......... I know for a fact that if i had not hired Mr Edgar that i would have never been granted the move away order. I Thank God every day for pointing me in the direction of Mr Edgar.
From the first time I met with Mr. Edgar I knew he would be able to help me with my case, because he is knowledgeable on family law. I feel Mr. Edgar is invested in my case and I trust his expertise. English is not my first language yet he is respectful and keeps my friend informed on my behalf, just as i have requested.
When my ex-wife filed for legal separation at first I did not seek legal representation. As time went on I found that I needed someone in my corner looking out for my best interests. I am very grateful that I was put in contact with Bill Edgar and his staff. I had moved out of the Riverside area and my first contact with Bill was by phone. He immediately made me feel confident that I would be well represented by a true professional who is extremely knowledgeable, experienced and tenacious. His fees are appropriate for his level of expertise and the results that he delivers.
When things got tense or combative with opposing counsel, Bill had the ability to install confidence in me that a fair resolution to my situation would be reached and that indeed was the case. Although child support was not an issue, spousal support was. He successfully negotiated a settlement that was fair to both parties and I am very grateful for that. When I was temporarily unemployed he and his staff wasted no time in having my support suspended providing very flexible and fair payments and fees during my financial hard times.

I interviewed a total of 6 attorney's while I was on a mission to find the representation for my child custody & divorce case. Lauren took the time to listen to all my issues and shared the same vision I had. I have been back to court twice now and have received more time with my daughter each time I return. I am very happy with services and highly recommend her to anyone seeking representation in a divorce or custody battle.
Bill Edgar & Lauren Cohen-Patterson have been on my case for over a year now. They both have been beyond amazing they have always been available to speak to and ask questions; they have replies to all my email promptly. I was impressed with their willingness to explain the small steps and help me understand all the technical terms They have gone above and beyond to fulfill what‘s in your best interest and helped me understand and decide what the best option for me have been considering my circumstance. . I will highly refer them to anyone who needs any type of family law professional advice!
Compassion and attorney are words that aren't often used in the same sentence, but I can here. Bill represented me in a no-nonsense, professional, and effective manner. I had never been to family court, but Bill took the fear out of it for me with his representation. Divorce proceedings are complicated; when custody is placed into the equation it becomes exponentially so. Bill worked to settle things outside of court whenever he could, even arranging for 4-Way meetings. The office staff is courteous, competent, and supportive. In court Bill is intense and never misses a beat. There were several occasions wherein the court was not supportive and would dismiss my concerns, but Bill did not allow this. Bill has worked with me through difficult times financially and stuck by me; he’s an honest and diligent attorney. I think what resonates most with me is that Bill cared about me as a father; he wanted to be sure I retained my rights as a father in a very hostile situation. I highly recommend Bill Edgar and have referred him several times. Thank you, Bill.
Attorney Bill Edgar has handled all aspects from my divorce proceedings to my high conflict/incredibly challenging custody battles since 2006 to current. I consulted Mr. Edgar in 2006 as a very concerned potential new client and left feeling at ease and like a friend.
As a devoted and loyal longtime client, I would never fathom placing the fate of my custody issues in the hands of any other family law attorney. Mr. Edgar kept me grounded and provided not only legal support, but was compassionate during the most difficult times of my life. Either during emergency hearings, request for orders, or routine review hearings, Mr. Edgar has ALWAYS prevailed on my behalf. Most importantly, Attorney Edgar will place the best interest of your child as his top priority. He has always made himself available by phone or in-person.
Attorney Edgar is honest, knowledgeable and will strive to provide the best outcome possible. I will continue to place my trust and faith in attorney Edgar, as he is committed to providing high-quality, aggressive, and effective representation.
If you are seeking a highly skilled attorney that is well respected in the legal community, look nowhere else. I have recommended many family member and friends to Mr Edgar. I highly recommend you consult his office to see for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
