This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.

Excellent straight forward attorney
At my initial Divorce consult with Mr. Saginar, I was extremely impressed by his patience on wanting to understand my case. He was a great listener and asked me thorough questions that no other attorney, I had retained in the past, had asked. He provided a clear understanding of my options going forward and did not give me false expectations. He came across honest and caring. He even advised me, based on his personal experience, not as an attorney. He could sense my insecurities about my marriage and provided me with very wise advised. He was knowledgeable about the law and straight forward. I felt comfortable and at ease that Mr. Saginar will do his best to protect me. I wished I had met Mr. Saginar earlier in my case. The one hour free consult ended up being two hours, but Mr. Saginar did not rushed me or charged me for the extra time. He was courteous and professional the entire time. I would highly recommend Mr. Saginar.

Review Edwin M. Saginar
Mr. Saginar remained close by our side, the entire case. He was present in the court. He spoke to the judge privately. Mr. Saginar understood our side, and the need to ultimately have the entire proceeding expunged. --And while it did take months (as Mr. Saginar said that it would), ultimately the case was fully removed. As our lawyer, Mr. Saginar followed the case diligently. (He told us that he would check on the process every few weeks, and he did so). His knowledge let him know how long the process would extend. ---And how wonderful is it, when your 'advocate,' your lawyer, even joins you for lunch during the proceedings, to outline his immediate and long-range plans. Excellent. ---Bruce

A top notch lawyer.
Edwin really goes above and beyond in his practice. I used him for my custody case with my son. It was drawn out over the span of a year and he really didn't miss a beat. I came out with more than I asked for with regards to custody and because of the additions to the custody agreement my son and I are creating a much deeper relationship...something that looking back on if I didn't have I would have missed out on some pretty awesome bond building moments. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone seeking help. He is a man of exceptional knowledge in his field.

Great Attorney!
Happy to have found Mr. Saginar. He has helped us on a few cases at our office, and definitely took the stress off of my shoulders. Each time in court has been such a relief to know that you have an attorney who makes you feel so secure, and that he is addressing the true issues at hand, along wtih defending your reputation. Not often do you find an attorney who is easy to communicate with, doesn't waste time, gives good sound advice of what actions should be taken, and prepping you for court, as it can be an emotional event. He and his staff are on top of communications, and keeping you involved completely every step of the way. Love the fact that he will tell it like it is, he utilizes his time wisely, unlike some attorneys who will stall to add additional "billable" hours. Our office highly recommends Mr. Saginar in his expertise. Truly a pleasure to work with.

Exceptionally Reliable
I have known Mr. Saginar for over over thirty years and have not only established a working relationship during this time but equally important have been close friends during this period. While being involved in a number of entrepreneurial enterprises over the years I have enlisted the assistance and knowledge of Mr. Saginar and have found that he has been beyond reproach in his knowledge of the law and his professional ethics. I would highly recommend him to anyone that might be in need of an attorney that would require a indisputable knowledge of the law and the ability to convey that in the judicial arena.

Mr Edwin Saginar is one of the finest attorney that I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. His many years of experience are instantly apparent, and his professionalism is selfevident. He has represented me on numerous occasions to my satisfaction. And the clients that I have referred to him on numerous occasions applaud his work and success. He is one of the few attorneys that promote fair settlements v.s. endless and costly litigation. I would recommend him to any of my clients seeking legal council.

An Amazing Attorney And An Amazing Man
Edwin represented me in a very complex divorce case. He listened and often comforted. He understood me and believed in me. He fought hard and represented me well. He kept me constantly appraised of what the upcoming steps were, and I never felt like I was just one of many cases on his docket. He took a very real interest in my case, and I know that my future and my happiness was a big deal to him. When it was all done, one of the people in the courtroom took me aside and said that he had been in courts for decades, but had rarely seen someone as good as Edwin.

EXCELLENT REPRESENTATION
TYPICALLY PEOPLE ONLY WRITE REVIEWS WHEN THEY ARE NOT HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE. I DECIDED TO TAKE SOME TIME TO LET PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THE EXCELLENT SERVICES I RECEIVED FROM MR. SAGINAR WITH RESPECT TO A DOMESTIC RELATIONS CASE. HE WAS EXCELLENT. HE DEFINITELY WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND IN THIS CASE AND WAS EXTREMELY THOROUGH IN ALL PROCEEDINGS RELATED TO THE CASE. HE TRULY CARES ABOUT HIS CLIENTS. HE IS NOT LIKE A TYPICAL "DIVORCE" LAWYER THAT ONLY CARES ABOUT GETTING THEIR FEE AND GETTING AS MANY CASES AS POSSIBLE. ALTHOUGH THE OUTCOME WAS NOT 100% IN OUR FAVOR IT WAS NOT DUE TO A LACK OF EFFORT ON MR. SAGINAR'S PART. I AM IN A PROFESSION SIMILAR TO AN ATTORNEY AND I ONLY HOPE THAT I REPRESENT MY CLIENTS IN THE SAME MANNER AS HE DID. I CANNOT IMAGINE SOMEONE FEELING THAT HE DID NOT GIVE THE MATTER HIS FULL ATTENTION.

Top Rated Attorney
I have personally worked with Edwin Saginar for over 18 years, and have recommended his legal counsel to countless potential clients for both Family Law related issues and Criminal Defense issues, including complicated appeals. I also have the expertise to distinguish the attributes that make a good trial lawyer, having worked in the legal field since 1987. I can say without hesitation that Mr. Saginar is one of the best trial lawyers I've had the privelege of knowing. I can further remark, in reviewing other posts on this forum, that in every court case someone wins and someone loses, and while the skill and performance of the legal counsel on both sides is important, it is not the defining factor in the outcome. There are thousands of clients out there unhappy with their outcomes, but it does not mean they had poor representation. It means they availed themselves of our judicial process, and despite their attorney's performance, they did not prevail. I recommend this attorney highly.

Services of Edwin Saginar
Mr. Saginar has represented me in several issues relating to Child Support, Custody and visitation issues, and attributed peripheral actions. The process lasted several years. During that time Mr. Saginar never failed to meet his obligations and responsibilities. He was supportive, constructive in his advise and actions, and managed to gain ground ultimately prevailing in an extremely adversarial battle. He is dedicated and passionate regarding his profession. I doubt seriously I would have the gained ground and relationship with my son I have today had it not been for the undeniable work put forth by Mr. Saginar. Prior to our relationship, I hired and fired three attorneys. Mr. Saginar was the first attorney who actually listened to me. I have known this gentleman for 15 years and have since had several legal issues review and implemented by him, all handled with the same expertise and compassion that was present when he was hired.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have been in the active practice of law in the State of Georgia for forty five years. In early 1992, I had occasion to meet Mr. Edwin M. Saginar, Esq., who was opposing Counsel in a domestic matter being handled in Barrow County, Georgia. In representing his client through the domestic litigation I witnessed a level of skill theretofore unknown to me. Mr. Saginar’s preparation for the depositions and for the trial were exemplary as were his skills in relating to his client. I have since had opportunities to refer, and have referred, clients to Mr. Saginar knowing that he would acquit himself most professionally and effectively. I’ve had a close professional relationship with Mr. Saginar since we first met and have found him to be a very interesting man with many different and meaningful interests. He is a man of impeccable honesty and exhibits the highest in ethical behaviors. Mr. Saginar brings great distinction to the profession of law in our state."
