Attorney Edari was WONDERFUL with not only my son who was in trouble, but me as a mom when I had questions. We spoke to another attorney about my sons case and all he seemed to care about was a paycheck and not helping my son. My son was facing time not only in jail but in prison, Attorney Edari worked long and hard to do what she could to lessen that time. While meeting with her and my son I could tell no one is a case number to her, they are human. She does not only care about helping with court, she stands up for that person and makes sure she gets them into a position they need. She discussed with my son getting into school, counseling, etc. She would check in with both of us to make sure things were going ok. She believed in my son changing as much as I do. My son ended up serving a month in jail and is now out trying to straighten his life up. He is with his young son who needs him. Which Attorney Edari made possible.
Attorney Edari has a calming, caring presence about her the minute you meet her. I cannot say enough about the positive encounter we had with her. She is a wonderful human being and an excellent attorney. I thank her for all she did for us, especially my son. I would recommend Attorney Edari to everyone who wants and needs a great attorney.

I met Vata, during the most horrific time in my life, I was facing felony child abuse charges. Vata was the third attorney that I had spoken with inregards to my case. The first two attorneys seemed as though they were straight to business and that's it. That left me feeling very unsure of hiring either one of them to represent me. Finally, a family member recommended Vata. I was a little reluctant at this point because this was going to be the third lawyer that I had spoken to about the chain of events that occurred. After the first conversation on the telephone, I knew she was the lawyer for me. She clearly explained everything to me. She told me what I needed to do to improve the outcome of my case and my life. Vata has become not only my lawyer, but my friend as well. She has called or texted me to see how I was doing and she made/and is making sure that I'm staying on my obligations that I have to do to satisfy for the court. She has went above and beyond for me and I greatly appreciate her so much. She helped me maintain my employment during the open case. Vata is the BEST Lawyer anyone could have, not only would I recommend her to family and friends, but I would also recommend her to strangers too. One of my best friends met Vata when we went to court and she said, "Oh I like her." Vata has saved my kids and my life and has given me the self-esteem and strength to know that we all make mistakes and that's ok. When it's all said...Vata cares...and that's what I respect the most about her!!!!

I am going to start off by saying thank you Syovata Edari,
You gave me the strength to get through a nightmare that I thought would never end. Syovata is a person that never let's you down, her attention to detail is amazing, the time she takes to call you and visit you at home shows you how much she cares about your case. I have worked with other lawyers before and I can honestly say that none compare to the focus this woman puts into your situation. Syovata Edari treated me as a human being not just another client, she showed compassion towards my family and my self during our hard situation. I would recommend Syovata to anyone who needs a lawyer, do to her honesty and determination to fight for your until the very end and never giving up.
Thank you Syovata Edari.
