Sharp attorney!
There are two types of attorneys: those who merely passed the bar and those who actually win cases. Ed is certainly the latter. A skilled orator and an aggressive defender. His clients are lucky to have him!

Great Attorney!
I engaged Eddie to advise me for a case and he did an excellent job! He impressed me with his deep knowledge in this field, his genuine interest in my case, his staff and on top of all, he has offered very practical legal advices. I felt that they actually cared for me as a person and just not a client. They ensured that I was treated fairly every step of the way. Eddie understands human psychology which comes in very handy when dealing with sensitive issues, and picking the right timing for negotiation. I would highly recommend Attorney Eddie for any sort of case. It has been a pleasure working with him & having the peace of mind of having my case in good hands. Thanks Eddie!!

The Right Lawyer for the job.
I have been using Edward Bajoka as legal counsel for my businesses for the last five years, and he has been doing a phenomenal job. Has worked hard to get us results, from litigation to contract negotiations. He will study the facts of your legal case and come up with the right strategy to achieve your business goals.

Highly dependable and personable
Mr.Bajoka is the best attorney ever! He was an extremely talented and powerful litigator. I had confidence that my matter would be resolved efficiently and proactively. During the entirety of my case I always felt Mr.Bajoka was communicative every step of the way. When clients come to see their attorneys, they are generally in horrible situations, ones that needs careful guidance and attention to details. Mr.Bajoka went over and above in providing me sound legal advice and advocating my rights to the fullest extent of the law. I would gladly recommend him to anyone in need of legal services!
