My husband was faced with a case against him. He called me from jail and I was totally lost as what to do. He asked me to call his friend from school who was a lawyer, Mr. Edwards. I found his number and called him on 3-way. My husband explained what happened and without any thought Mr. Edwards said I can help. From that day he begin working on the case. If he was unable to make it to the court hearings he sent someone to represent him instead of leaving my husband by himself. It took several months but we finally got call with Mr. Edwards saying "DISMISSED ". From the first day Mr. Edwards worked diligently for us and the final result was a dismissal. So we just want to say thank you. BTW I have already started referring him to other people.

First of all I want to say that consistency is one of the most important things I look for in my attorney and Michael Edwards exemplifies this in every capacity.
He was always there for appearances on time, he always came prepared for the things that needed to happen that day, and most importantly he was always there to discuss my case over the phone when needed. My case took a little over 6 months to get an understanding on what was going to happen with the outcome.
Throughout that entire time Mr. Edwards was very professional and informed me of any updates or changes in my situation. He informed me of my possible choices and offered me advice but didn't force any decisions to be made that I didn't want. He truly put his clients wishes at the fore front and fought for me until the last day when the case was DISMISSED.
He was able to prove the fact that the police officers involved with my case had lied, manipulated and acted unprofessionally until the DA had no choice but to dismiss the case.
This came as a big relief to me and my family because from the get go our only desire was a dismissal due to it being what was right considering the situation. Mr. Edwards fought for this fact all the way and this made me very pleased with the money spent. All in all the words that come to mind for Attorney Edwards are honorable, consistent, trustworthy, lawful and most important to me, dutiful.
I can tell you he most certainly served me as my attorney to the best of his.....or anyone's abilities which led to an awesome judgment!!

Mr. Michael Edward,
I would like to thank you for the exceptional job that you did in the dismissal of my son's case. You are a very knowledgeable, skillful, talented, detailed, persistent, and passionate attorney. You left no stones unturned. Upon meeting you and updating you on the facts of the case, you said you could win this case and you proved yourself to be right. The case went through many challenging events but you stayed the course. I am forever grateful for your services and your kindness. Thank you Mr Edwards.

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.

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.
