    • I recommend Harold Edgar.

    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.

    • I recommend Harold Edgar.

    I came to this law office at the start of a very hostile divorce. Since the start, Mr. Edgar and Mrs. Cohen-Patterson have been very attentive to my needs. They have answered all of my questions thoroughly and promptly. The entire office team has also been very responsive and at no times do I feel like I am bothering anyone.

    I've been put into a very strong position on my case due to the advanced thinking and strategy put in place. I would of easily lost a good chunk of time with my child had it not been for Bill & Lauren. They have both been fantastic in holding the other side accountable, which has taken a huge stress off my shoulders.

    Divorce is an awful process, but my legal team has taken the edge off of the process. That and the fact they speak to me in english and as people is very reassuring.

    Highly recommend to anyone going down this road.

    Because of Bills dedication and his promise from the very start I finally won jurisdiction! As a mom I doubted many times that I would win, Bill made sure we stayed on track and fighted for my family like it was his own. When ever I had any questions or urgent request Bill and his team responded right away. I recommend everyone to William Edgar Law.

    I have had a great experience so far with this office.Lauren Cohen Patterson was assigned as my lawyer & with the help from a few other people in the office like Sarah Brommer, my time with them has been so helpful. I was struggling hard on my own & immediately Lauren & the rest put me at ease & did what needed to be done & what was best for me & my situation. Everyone is very helpful & sweet & talk to me like Im a real person, not a number but closer to a good friend.

    • I recommend Harold Edgar.

    Attorney Bill Edgar was very professional and knowledgeable. This was a very difficult time for me and my children but Mr. Edgar and his staff were thoughtful and considerate during this sensitive time in my life. I initially retained another local attorney which used half of my retainer doing essentially nothing. My ex husband had a local respected attorney which initially intimidated me but Mr. Edgar's office was always one step ahead.On our court day I was very pleasantly surprised to recognize that Mr. Edgar had a great reputation with the court and especially with the judge which made me feel very reassured. I had a really good outcome and would highly recommend this office for any of your family law needs.

    • I recommend Harold Edgar.
    • I hired Harold 1-3 years ago.
    • Harold handled my Family matter.

    I have used Mr. Edgar's office two times in the past and he has always done an excellent job. He was able to get a contempt citation dismissed in the first court hearing. He is very knowledgeable and professional. In fact, I had to modify my support and used another attorney and did not get the results and hired Mr. Edgar to fix it and he did. I have referred family and friends to Mr. Edgar. I would highly recommend Mr. Edgar to anyone that needs a Family Law Attorney. With experience with other family law lawyers, I have foudn his billing practices to be reasonable and fair.
