    Michael is an awesome attorney. His attention to detail, research, and passion for the law are unparalleled. I feel confident that anyone who hires Michael has an attorney that genuinely cares and will give their case the true effort and time that it deserves.

  • Armando Andres Montesino

    I know Mr. Edwards to be passionate about litigation. He was senior to me in law school and, even back then, he was going above and beyond the coursework (at a challenging school) in order to hone his litigation skills. I recommend him without any reservation whatsoever.
