About me

I have adopted the following statement of values as the basis for my
legal practice. Each statement is rooted in one or more of these
important principles: Respect, Responsibility and Relationship.


  1. As an attorney who is a Christian, I am guided by
    my faith. It is my goal to provide legal services in a skilled and
    experienced manner to people in need of assistance. It is our aim to
    provide the best possible customer service for personal injury clients.

  2. My
    staff and I place the needs of our clients at the forefront in
    advocating for their individual interests. We strive to treat all
    clients with compassion, understanding and respect.

  3. I
    speak honestly with my clients when advising and representing their
    interests. I feel strongly that my clients are entitled to high-quality
    legal advice. While I cannot guarantee any particular result, I am
    committed to providing each client with a thorough and accurate
    assessment of their case, based on my education and sixteen years of
    experience practicing law.

  4. It is my desire to
    establish long-lasting relationships with my clients. I strive to
    maintain these relationships in such a way that each client feels
    confident referring others who may require legal assistance to Harper
    Law, PLLC.

  5. I strive to set an example for my staff
    by taking responsibility for performing tasks correctly the first time.
    My staff and I strive to handle every claim as though each of us has a
    personal interest in the outcome.

    Outstanding personal injury attorney! Ed is very effective and aggressive for his clients, who always come first. Last year he had a multimillion dollar jury verdict in a very difficult case. I have no reservations recommending him, and have referred my own clients to him in the past.

    Ed is a lawyer of integrity who works hard and delivers the best for his clients. Though he focuses on personal injury, he represented my last company in a litigation matter and did an excellent job, acting efficently and getting the outcome we wanted.
