An Excellent and Exceptional Attorney
I am so thankful and grateful that I hired Mr. Edd K. Roberts III to represent me regarding an automobile accident in which I was involved on December 5, 2019. He negotiated a dismissal on a charge of failing to reduce speed and got the cost of court waived. This would have made retaining his services worth while; however, in addition, I'd like to add that I was most impressed with his professional manner and willingness to take the time to talk with me concerning the accident and the conditions under which it occurred. He expressed concern, care and interest for me personally and my emotional state of mind. I remember feeling so encouraged, relieved and comforted as I left his office the day of my visit. I would highly recommend his services and have already sheared with family and friends about my experience of choosing Mr. Roberts as my Attorney.

Failure to have complete stop at sipping sign.
I was referred to Mr. Roberts after this incident. During the process he and staff were totally professional and help. The results of dropped charges, were, of course, perfect. I absolutely recommend. You will love him.

Experience Counts!
Ed Roberts and his assistant Elizabeth were terrific to work with. Enough cannot be said about hiring a lawyer that has been in Raleigh / Wake County his entire career. Ed has a great reputation & is well respected by his peers. It is a definite asset to know the judges & district attorneys and how the Wake County court system works. My issue was something I probably could have handled on my own but there is no doubt in my mind that I came out better hiring Ed. I would not have been able to present my case nearly as effectively as Ed did. In court, it was obvious that he knew the judge & D.A and that he commanded their respect. By myself court would have been a little intimidating. I felt very confident having Ed Roberts represent me. I would definitely hire Ed Roberts again, although I hope I never need to.

Trustworthy, Professional and Caring
I've never hired an attorney in my life, and just like anything you do for the first time, there was anxiety and uncertainty. That changed quickly when we spent an hour to discuss the case. Mr. Roberts came prepared even before he was hired. He was frank and gave me the entire picture of what would happen in the legal process should the case advance further. What impressed me the most, though, was that he tried his best to understand the circumstance that I was in. I certainly felt that he shared his sincere empathy with me. Also, Mr. Roberts is very result driven. He was able to resolve the situation within the time frame he expected. Overall, my first impression with an attorney is extremely positive thanks to Mr. Roberts! Thank you for your hard work!

An excellent attorney, Mr. Roberts works hard for his clients
Mr. Roberts did a terrific job resolving my case. He made me feel very comfortable going through all the decisions that were made. I frequently asked him questions and he always gave me honest, thorough answers. By addressing my concerns, he made me feel integral to the decision making process. On court days he felt like a friend and did a tremendous job on the legal side. His office staff are friendly and resourceful. If anyone I know or a family member needs legal counsel, Mr. Roberts would definitely be getting the call.

Excellent Attorney
I felt compelled to shout out about my experience with Edd Roberts and his staff over the past four years. Yes, 4 years! I have been treated with respect, trust and professionalism by every person in Edd’s firm. We took my case to a jury trial for DWI. I watched Edd work up close for 3 days, This man knows what he is doing. Edd was beyond prepared to defend me after 4 years passed.. The judge dismissed my case just before the jurors were to start deliberating on my case. #1 Fan!!!

DWI
Edd Roberts provides thorough and professional representation to all of his clients. He worked diligently throughout my case to fight for me in my best interests. There's no other lawyer you would want other than Edd Roberts with your case. He is a great lawyer and well worth the money. He explains everything in detail on what to do and what not to do. He went above and beyond in order to make my case easier for myself. His professionalism and treatment were outstanding, He deserves 10 stars!

Excellent!
Mr. Roberts worked very aggressively to defend me during my case for DWI. In a case where I felt as though the odds were against me, he was able to prove that I was not guilty of the charge. His knowledge and expertise in the field was evident from the first time I spoke to him. His office was extremely professional, coaching me through the entire year long process, and returning any call or email promptly. I highly recommend his services to anyone finding themselves in a similar situation!

Highly recommend
Mr. Roberts and his assistants did such an outstanding job while my case was going on. He understood my situation as a young man 19-22 years old having to deal with three felonies that could ruin my life. He was not only a great lawyer but a good therapist. He had confidence in me to go the right path. Making a mistake in life shouldn't have to ruin my entire life. I thank him for helping me through 3 years of back and forth with the DA. He may seem a bit intimidating but that is because he cares and wants you to care too. Help him help you. As for the assistants, they were always good at calling me, my parents or emailing me any new information or reminders and never let me forget something I needed. I thank the whole law firm and wish him luck with his future clients!

Resisting Arrest, Under Age Drinking and Misdemeanor Assault
Mr Roberts was very knowledgable and professional. He recommended my son do several things to give him the advantage before going to court. His knowledge and expertise with the legal system made a very difficult time for us easier to handle. He showed compassion and concern for my sons future. All three charges were dismissed and my sons record is in the process of being exspunged. Mr Roberts assistant Sarah kept us informed and worked diligently to answer our questions in a timely, pleasant and professional manner. it was a pleasure to work with her as well. Many thanks to the Roberts Law Firm.

DUI Representation
Another attorney referred us to Mr. Roberts, saying that she if she had a criminal matter to deal with in Wake County that she would seek Mr. Robert's assistance. She gave us great advise, as he was able to care for my son's DUI case that was complicated by his current out-of-state residency. We were treated with a high level of professionalism. He and his office were quick to support us from the first phone call to the final filing of court documents. Our case was handled to our satisfaction in about 1 month from contract of engagement to settling of court costs. We were kept informed at all steps along the way. I highly recommend Mr. Roberts to handle DUI/DWI citations.

The Best of the Best!
Experience says it all! I've had my share of traffic matters, both big and small and I would not trust any other attorney to handle them. Attorney Roberts has really gotten me out of a huge bind when I needed him to. I recommend him to all my friends and acquaintances for any criminal or traffic matter they need help with.
