I called Bill Edgar Law for assistance with a Family Law matter. Although their main office is in Riverside, they have another office in Anaheim, which is much closer to where we live. We were offered a free consultation, and had the pleasure of meeting with attorney Brian Dow. He was friendly, professional and made us feel that he was more than qualified to help with our case. He was warm and genuine, making us both feel that he was genuinely concerned about helping us. Throughout the lengthy and tedious paperwork, the entire staff at this law office were easy to work with, knowledgeable and courteous. When the court date arrived, Brian was at his professional best. He was able to negotiate a compromise, and in doing so, saved us a court appearance (possibly more than one). The entire staff worked with us to help keep the costs down as well. We are very pleased with the representation provided by Bill Edgar Law, and highly recommend them to anyone in need of friendly and professional legal assistance.

I hired this lawyer to get visitation re-established... He agreed to help but refused to look at my case, did not responds in a timely manner, did not look at evidence, and much more. I was charged for following up on my case because they refused to give me any information and more... They took my money and just showed face and filed paperwork they were so unprofessional that they made matters worse in my case and once that happened they just washed their hands of me... Do not hire these people, they can not be trusted to do a professional job

We needed a someone who practices family law in California to handle a custody and child support modification - we live 3000 miles from CA, so in order to get it done right, we decided to hire this firm. "Should be simple." We sent the retainer and signed the contract in April. Court papers were filed in July. We were required to do Child Custody Counseling in September and requested to appear by phone. We emailed Mr. Edgar asking what we needed to do to appear by phone weeks before the mediation. The night before mediation, we got a phone call from the law office instructing us to call the courthouse and leave a message with our pertinent information. We did. The court never called us for the mediation. The next day, our case report stated "No recommendation -party did not appear, no doc." Mediation rescheduled for NOVEMBER. Eleven days after the first scheduled mediation, the certificate of completion for UPTOPARENTS was filed and the custody/child support modification was pushed back two more months. A month after the first mediation, a request to apppear by phone was submitted. (I assume this should have been done previous to the first date.) The second mediation attempt was successful.
Moving forward to November: The custody/support modification hearing. The morning of, the courthouse is called and given our case information. The hearing was scheduled for 8:30 am. At 9:30 am, we called the courthouse again. We were told they would call when they were ready. Two hours after that, the court called and asked, "Have you heard from Mr. Edgar? What's taking so long, is that he hasn't shown." If he couldn't be there, then someone else from his office should've been there. At the very least, we and the court should've been notified that he wouldn't be present. Needless to say, we went ahead with the hearing without "our lawyer" present. We called him after the hearing and he never got back to us. Responsibility and accountablity mean anything?
We still have one minor problem to solve - perhaps Mr. Edgar can redeem himself, but, for the most part, we have no confidence in his ability to get anything done correctly or in a timely manner. He did communicate well when he needed money to file paperwork.
His paralegal, Tonya, gets five stars. Thank you for your help, Tonya.

H. William Edgar Law offices in Riverside and Temecula CA. Are some of the most professional lawyer's I've had the pleasure to work with for my Child custody, Visitation and Custody support court appearences. They have a wonderful well put together team whom works hand in hand with their clients to give them the best possible results. Everyone in the law firm is very caring, personable and understanding which makes each client feel confident their case will be handled with efficiency and care. Client/Attorney communication is always available and made easy to contact. My overall experience was excellent and I greatly recommend this office for any family law needs.

This was my first time ever hiring an attorney and Bill as well as his staff were just amazing. They always kept my best interest in mind, and did their best to help me come to the final conclusion that i had hoped for. I would strongly recommend Bill's firm to anyone that is in need of a family law attorney.

I was going on a 2-year divorce and paying spousal through the nose. My future ex-wife’s attorney kept stalling, cancelling appearances and asking for things that were ridiculous, even for California. I used an attorney, John J. Buckey, who didn’t fight for me and charged me an arm and a leg to do nothing. My girlfriend finally convinced me to hire a new lawyer. We read reviews on H. William Edgar and crossed our fingers. Originally all the footwork was done by Brian Dow, a nice guy who showed genuine interest, but not as aggressive as I hoped. Still, he was good even though my soon to be ex’s attorney cancelled two more scheduled hearings. However, at the last hearing before a trial was set, Edgar stepped in. He got it all settled. My spousal support was cut to a third of what I was paying, and I didn’t have to pay out anything else (medical, dental, etc.) He added a stipulation that at the end of the agreed term, she can't request anything else. During the hearing, the bailiff was on a break and spoke to me for a few minutes. Then he confided that Edgar was a barracuda and was tearing up my now ex-wife's attorney. The only negative experience is that the girl who does the accounting sent the bills to the wrong address, and it seemed as if we were deliberately not paying our bills for months, but they agreed to a reasonable payment plan. I completely recommend the H. William Edgar law firm for a divorce. William Edgar was worth every penny!

I came to Bill Edgar wanting 2 things, a schedule change for more time with my 2 boys and a judgement enforced to receive money from my 2009 divorce.
The consultation was free and the intake was easy and seamless. Bill's employees were immediately working on my case and keeping me updated through the whole process. His staff was always availible to answer any questions I had.
Now that there are no more court dates needed, I must say that I got what I came to Bill for. I now have an equal holiday schedule and every other weekend with overnights with my 2 sons and my divorce judgement enforced.
If you want a law firm to get you what you are seeking, then Bill Edgar's firm is the one you will want to go with.

I had a very difficult trial with some very technical legal issues. Bill explained all of them to me so I could understand. More importantly, although I didn't understand at the time, he explained some problems with my case as well. In the end, everything worked out pretty much the way he explained.
