Family law
This law firm did an amazing job getting me more time with my boys. Hope to be getting 50/50 soon but they definitely got me further than I was with my children and I’m thankful for them in this process. They were very reliable and always willing to answer any questions I had, Kristina was always there for me when it came to paperwork and setting appointments with my lawyer Edgar. As a team this girl made my experience a great one considering the circumstances I was under. I left court feeling relieved and hopeful for the future in my children s lives.

Best legal team. Hands down.
Brian Dow and his team are a godsend. Hands down the most professional, amazing legal team. They always respond back quickly when concerning your case. I loved that fact that Mr. Dow was not hesitant to provide me with all possible outcomes of my trial. Worth every single cent. Worth every single second. Honestly, the whole team needs superhero capes.

Amazing!
I was with a different law firm for a whole year and there was no change and I was losing a case that should have been completely in my favor, all they wanted was money... i was only on the case with mr Edgar for 2 weeks & he made a huge change in my case! I would definitely recommend this law firm completely awesome, well represented & right to the point. Very nice & understanding!

Long process but great result
I was referred to Nicole by a coworker. Things happened so quickly, and I needed an attorney to defense me in a CPS case. She told me what is going to happened, what need to be done and how much it would cost since our first meeting. The case takes longer than I expected but after 8 months, she is able to have my name removed from the allegation.

The Best
He's worth the cost, folks! He did his job and then some. He showed up on time for court and was polite but, firm, with opposing parties. I wasn't able to keep him the entire court case due to finances, but, he set me up on the right path and his reputation in court preceded him.

The best Law Office in Riverside County
Hi, Allow me to share with the world how my divorce in 2013 was a horrible experience. Went with a law office (will not mention) that was mediocre. I thought going with a lawyer would help me in my situation since this was my first time going through a divorce and a custody battle. That law office was horrible made me feel like it was all my fault and then when we went to court I lost and had to go back 3 times to finally be able to see our kids. I lost faith in the law system and felt I had no rights and that the Riverside court was “Pro Mom” and did not care for dads rights. Then my ex wants to take me to court AGAIN and take away our kids from me. I was so scared that this time was going to be like last time and I might lose more time with our kids. UNTIL the Law offices of H. William Edgar from the beginning heard me, understood, and made me feel like I had rights. Mr. Edgar, my attorney, was absolutely amazing! Not only was it him, his entire team is WORLD CLASS!!! From the moment I walked in, to the moment I met Mr. Edgar and even during the entire process including Mrs. Vivian Corona I felt I had an army on my side. As a father who thought “I have no rights” or “believe in the court system” this meant the world to me. Following the guidance and putting my trust in The Law Offices of Mr. Edgar was the best move I ever did, only wish I would found them in 2013. I believe that God works in mysterious ways and I truly was lead to this Law Office because my final court hearing I got want I always wanted!!! I am now a father that stand proud and Mr. Edgar kept his word I now see our kids more time and they helped me understand my rights, because as fathers we do have rights and Mr. Edgar and his team gave me back my voice!!! I appreciate you guys and I know this team cares, values, and truly hear you out. Mr. Edgar thank you for fighting for me and my family. A true blessing.

Best Family Law Attorney in the Inland Empire
I hired Mr Edgar to assist me in my Child Custody/Visitation case, as I was looking to increase my visitation time with my children, as it had not been modified since 2011. My experience not only with Mr Edgar, but his entire staff has been nothing but positive, considering the circumstances of my case. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable, and definitely made this experience go a lot smoother for me than I expected. If you are looking for an attorney who is knowledgeable, trustworthy, dependable, and one that will not sugar coat the potential outcome of your case just to get your business, then look no further!! You will find all of those qualities in Mr Edgar and his team.

Extremely Pleased With The Work of H. William Edagar and Staff.
I was represented by Ms. Nicole Anderson, I was extremely pleased with her work and the outcome of my case. I was facing a lot of charges that were false. The whole time the DCFS system tried to take my children from me on false claims and doctored evidence. Ms. Anderson saw through my ex's lies and false claims and went out of her way to represent me. Even though I was 2 hours from where her office is. Ms. Anderson fought for me and got the charges dismissed and got me back on my way to getting 50/50 custody of my daughter's back. This has been a long and hard road and it is still going, but Ms. Anderson and the Law Offices of H. William Edgar have been there with me the whole way fighting for my rights as a father. If you're a father and have had to or are going through a DCFS case you know how DCFS social workers treat fathers, (Horribly). I couldn't be more happy with the outcome and the continued support throughout this whole ordeal. I Thank You Ms. Anderson and all the staff that helped me and continues to help me still. They will fight for you just like they did for me, and you wont regret hiring the Law Offices of H. William Edgar. I appreciate all of your hard work, thank you so much.

Nicole Anderson is amazing!
I highly recommend NICOLE ANDERSON. She fought for my family as her own! I was very comfortable with her the more I got to know her. She communicates well and will get the job done beyond belief! We are so grateful to have been referred to her and would definitely recommend her to our own family! Thank you so much Nicole, we can never thank you enough! Always, The Pacheco family!

Choose Dana and Jeremy to handle your case
"Dana and Jeremy were as responsive as they could be when I had questions. I understand that they have other clients and a work load, so I appreciated the time and their ability to get back to me in a timely manner when they could. I trusted Jeremy to represent me well while in the court room based on his knowledge and confidence that he had with my case. Dana was concise and kind to me always through correspondences building my trust with the firm. What appeared to be a nightmare 9 months ago has now become a miracle and I am just so grateful for the firm never giving up on my case and helping me get to that finish line safely."

Attorney Nicole Anderson
We love Attorney Nicole Anderson! She’s still on our case and this last court hearing really proved her skills and fight, as we got continued visitation with our grandson even though the odds were against us and the recommendation from the social worker was to end our visits and leave them at the “discretion” of the opposing party. Attorney Nicole is smart, quick, retains information in her head without a pen, and is brutally honest and outspoken. So if you’re looking for a passive and meek attorney who will agree with you on everything and tell you what you want to hear, then she isn’t the one for you. But if you’re seeking a no-nonsense, aggressive woman to take your case, then she’s the one I recommend. Be prepared to hear it like it is when you hire Ms. Anderson, because she’s a “no frills” attorney who shoots it straight and gets down to business and gets things accomplished.

Happy with the outcome
Jeremy and Dana are great people. Honest, caring and upfront. We had one goal, gain full custody of my son. Jeremy and Dana fought for this goal, advising us through out the case. We highly recommend Jermery and Dana for family law services. In the end our goal was reached. Nothing better than that.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! The law offices of Edgar Williams have represented me on multiple occasions since 2008 from divorce, child custody, child support and domestic violence. Jeremy is extremely knowledgable in all of these areas. He is an honest, no nonsense attorney. Dana and Jeremy respond in a timely manner and are very professional. Not only did he get me full custody of my children, he actually got us more child support than we were originally asking for. If you are looking for an amazing family law attorney, look no more, Jeremy and his staff are best you can find.
