Mr. Salem was not only able to minimize very stiff penalties I was facing in a criminal case, he also helped me save my job by getting the charges reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor. He and his very capable staff stood by me every step of the way during very a frightening time for me. No one ever expects to find themselves facing jail time and the quality of your legal representative can determine the outcome of your case. Should anyone find themselves facing an improbable situation, I would strongly recommend Ed Salem for knowledgeable and effective representation.

Ed Salem in one word is Amazing. I'm a single dad of four children 10 years and younger. I recently had to move across the country and was awarded full custody thanks to Ed. Prior to working with Ed, I had been worked over by the judicial system and had completely lost faith in it. Ed came into my life through a very strong recommendation of a friend who I now can't thank enough. Not only was his legal advice top notch, but he helped me keep my head up, take the high road and fight the good fight. I couldn't have done this without him. Seeing Ed in action was unbelievable. This is a man who is truly passionate about what he does. For a father to be awarded full custody in a cross country move should speak volumes of Ed's brilliance. I hope I'll never need a lawyer again, but if I do there's only one person in the world I would consider.

Mr. Salem helped me in my personal injury case. My case went to trial this year and he did an excellent job. Throughout my case him and his office staff answered all my questions and kept me informed about my case. I was nervous going to trial. But each day during trial he made me feel comfortable and explained to me the trial process. He has the ability to communicate with a jury and capture their attention. He is a natural in the courtroom. It was a pleasure having him represent me in my case.

I endorse this lawyer. Ed Salem is someone I trust implicitly, and who I recommend, for both his legal skills and his character. Ed has a tremendous amount of legal experience, especially in personal injury cases. I consult with him regularly on my own PI cases. He understands the PI practice, such as when and how to employ experts to get the best result without overspending which would reduce the client's recovery. He is aggressive. He is a trial lawyer, and will take cases to trial when the defense does not make a reasonable offer. Ed also has impeccable character, and embodies what a lawyer is supposed to be. Updating my endorsement in September 2016: I have known Ed for almost seven years now and my comments about him are more true than ever. I give him my highest recommendation.
