In early 2012 I was unjustly sued for a very large amount of money. I had never been sued before and didn't know where to turn. I called several attorneys out of the yellow pages, one of which told me I should call Ed Maginnis for a civil case like mine. I left Ed Maginnis a message and less than 2 hours later had a return call from him. He patiently listened to my story over the phone and asked me to email him a copy of the paperwork I was served so he could take a look - no obligation at this point. As soon as I did, he called me back to tell me that he was willing to take my case. He made no promises but he told me that we had a good chance of getting the case dismissed so that it may never have to go to court. I felt very good about him and trusted his advice. He gave me my options along with the possible outcomes - best case and worst case scenario - and guided me through the whole process. It took about 7 months and there were some bumps in the road (the plaintiff changed his complaint to increase the chances of the case going to court) but Ed Maginnis diligently worked in my best interest and ended up getting the case dismissed. Needless to say I am very happy with the outcome and would recommend Atty. Ed Maginnis to any of my friends and family. If you need the best attorney in your corner, someone you can trust 100%, you need to call Ed Maginnis.

Ed has been our company lawyer for the past 3 years. He has also been my personal lawyer during that time frame. He has provided contract review, collections, business litigation (both as plaintiff and defendant) and dispute negotiation. Ed won a critical jury trial for us regarding the violation of a non-compete. Having Ed on-board to address business and legal issues can be a real weapon for any business. Ed specializes in working with small businesses - high quality service at a reasonable price.

Ed is an excellent attorney. I had the good fortune of working with him when he was starting his own law practice and while I was in North Carolina running a retail business. I am very glad to see that he appears to be doing very well - and as it ought to be, because he is an excellent attorney, and an exceptionally good person to boot.
