About Edward

Learn Edward’s areas of practice.

I graduated from the University of Iowa Law School in 2013 and then clerked for the Fifth Judicial District of Iowa where I assisted judges in researching issues and writing opinions. In December of 2015, I began working at Nelsen and Feitelson. In June of 2018, I began working at Hopkins and Huebner where I maintained a general practice working in criminal defense, civil litigation, family law, and probate.

Prior to going to law school, I attended the University of Miami, Florida and graduated with a double major in journalism and political science. I enjoy spending time with my wife and three dogs.

Review of Edward Fishman, J.D.
I highly recommend Edward Fishman, J.D. I am not known for hyperbole and rarely give a rave review for anyone’s work. This is an exception. Eddie is a fantastic attorney. On May 25, 2023, my wife and I had our 37th wedding anniversary and on May 31, 2023, our divorce was final. When I found out my wife wanted a divorce, I secured Eddie’s services. I found him to be ethical, detail oriented, timely in his work, and skilled in protecting my interests. His fees were consistent with the time he devoted to my situation. As with many people who find themselves in the position I was in, I did not know much the legal process, what to expect, and how my life would be changing. Eddie was patient, direct, and able to guide me through the time his services were needed. It wasn’t easy work: a great deal of information needed to be gathered about the finances that occurred during a 37-year marriage. I sometimes cringed at what he expected me to validate, but over time, the rational for his requests became clear. We often need attorneys when we don’t expect to need them. It is my recommendation that if you find yourself in the situation like mine, you consider seeking legal services from Edward Fishman.

He thinks very strategically and does not lose sight of the big picture. He knows the court system and law very well and also reads people well. His communication skills are excellent and he has a terrific sense of humor, which helped ease a somewhat stressful experience.

Professional and Ethical
I hired Eddie as a divorce lawyer. He handled my case with the utmost professionalism. He answered my questions in a timely manner. He gave me honest feedback and advice. He was ethical in the manner in which he laid out our plan and how he presented it in mediation. I was proud to have been represented by Mr. Fishman and would recommend him highly.

OUTSTANDING!
I was referred to Eddie by a colleague of mine. I was skeptical not having to deal with lawyers ever in my life. He was very understanding, compassionate and made sure we clearly understood our options. Very caring and wonderful person. He exceeded my expectations. Yes we wanted to win, but the kindness and concerns he had for us was above and beyond. I would highly recommend Eddie and his firm.

Outstanding Attorney and Wonderful Person!
I had an OWI case and was referred to Mr. Eddie Fishman. I am so thankful for Eddie, he was absolutely wonderful to work with. A consummate professional! He did exactly what he said he would do and he took care of things as rapidly as he could. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him. The other thing that impressed me about Mr. Fishman was his humanity and his ability to communicate with me and make me feel like I was being taken care of. He made me feel at ease and gave me that reassured feeling of comfort that no matter how bad the situation seemed to me on the front side, he would help me take care of the case. AND HE DID!!! God Bless you Sir! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Fantastic Lawyer
Eddie is as thorough as it gets...we ran into some speed bumps like every journey will. Eddie takes the time to make things right and see it through, even while his wife was expecting. Superb human being...thanks Eddie!

Exceptional!
I was referred to Eddie by another very satisfied client and was happy I did. Eddie was courteous, non-judgmental, listened to my situation and circumstances genuinely, and created a defense based on his experience with my type of case-OWI. I am certain the outcome of my case would have been worse had I not hired Eddie. He made himself available when I needed his input and consulted me with what to expect and what I needed to do to help myself. If you are second-guessing your current attorney stop and pick up the phone and speak with Eddie - you will be happy you did just as I am.
