I recently have the good fortune of being referred to Mr. Powell. My case was a civil matter that was of the most importance to me and the community I live in. Mr. Powell took my case, and we won. His knowledge of law, and preparation of the facts was far superior to my opponents attorney. More importantly I observed a man who not only is a very capable attorney, but one who is also very passionate. Mr. Powell is a man who fights for whats right, and does not consider you just another "deposit" in his checkbook.

Ed Powell is one of the best and well informed when it comes to law. I have been in court on several occasions in Ashe County and Yadkin County with Ed Powell out performing thr other Attorney. I can truthfully say taht I am impressedwitjh Mr Powell and he always does his home work and has plenty of case law to back up his argument.

Mr. Powell handled a civil case for me and a group of residents and it is now in appeals court and has done a magnificent job. He is very honest, very trustworthy, and the most knowledgable of the laws of any attorney I have ever known. He is also a very compassionate human being. I would never consider hiring anyone else for any legal need.
