Very Agressive For You!
Wendy is by far the best attorney I have had the pleasure of representing me. She was very agressive in working for me to get the best possible outcome. I would recommend her to EVERYONE!!!

DUI pleaded to Reckless
Wendy's firm was recommended to me by a lawyer friend of mine. I was arrested for a DUI, however Wendy went to battle for me and based on the circumstances of my case was able to have to the DUI changed to a Reckless. Wendy gets results, hire her.

a chance otherwise not bestowed..
I had been getting in trouble on a level i had not previously attained. so much ,in fact, that i was look'n at earning my number, and i had less and less belief that i could ever have any kind of legitimate life ever again. i had been let down by court appointed public defenders who supposedly done all that could be done and the plea agreements only changed the title of my crimes but nothing to so much as even reduce my sentence. I reached the bottom, in my mind, anyway, missed court, would get bonded out just to catch more charges plus warrants for FTA. finally after hearing not so great news from other so called defense lawyers, a consultation was arranged with Ms. Edwards. I truly wanted to stop and reverse my path to nowhere and after not much convincing, Ms. Edwards took my case and told me to let her handle it, I simply stay out of trouble and appear when told and like magic, I was offered deals that I could hardly believe that truly helped my position in reduced fines and time served. Had I known about and consoled w Ms. Edwards months, years before on original charges, according to her I most likely would never been convicted of any of the snowball charges in the first place, and I have no doubt in my mind or heart that she was B.S'n me. Five years of being caught in the system with multiple warrants to boot all gone like waking from a bad dream. I'm now free and clear of both municipal and superior courts and her fees were more than reasonable for the swift and efficient manner which Ms.Edwards handled my multi-juristictional cases and tho I don't have any desire to push my luck anymore' I'd recommend Ms. Edwards to anybody who gets caught up in the machine needing not to go to prison.

Wendy on your side
Wendy stepped up to the challenge and fought hard for me to the end. The case wasn't dismissed, but it was as good as it could get because she is an excellent defense lawyer.

Effective! A fighter!
I was very satisfied with the result of Wendy's efforts. I was looking for a fighter and she is relentless with her opponent. Exactly what you want in an attorney! I would use her again but let's hope there won't be a need!

Good Lawyer
I found Wendy to be very understanding of my situation. By going to court for me, my anxiety was greatly reduced. Her and her assistant were always on top of things and the case ended well for me.

Wendy Edwards has done very well by me.
I was arrested for DUI with a BAC level of .157. I was booked into Coconino county jail and hired Wendy Edwards the next morning as my attorney. The original charge against me was extreme DUI with penalties including 30 days in jail and several thousand dollars in fines. From our first interaction, Mrs. Edwards was kind and comforting to me. Her professionalism and expertise in her practice gave me a sense of security and confidence that my case would be handled well and end with a good out come. While my trial was pending, she kept me up to date on the status of my case and insisted that I never hesitate to contact her with any questions I might have. In the end, Mrs. Edwards negotiated a great deal with the state and had my penalties reduced to the bare minimum with no additional time in jail. I would highly recommend Wendy Edwards to anyone in need of legal representation.

Excellent DUI / DWI Attorney
Wendy did an outstanding job representing me. I was charged with DUI and she would not take a plea and was not bullied or intimidated by the prosecutor or the policeman. She took the case to trial and destroyed them. Not guilty in less than 30 minutes.
