Review Harold Edgar

    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.

    I very much regret retaining Mr.Edgar. Followed his recommended courses of action but his office executed so late, that the judge refused to consider them.

    Frequently said he would do one thing but did something else. I provided a lot of evidence that supported my position and directly refuted my opponents but he prevented this from being entered into court by suddenly ending the trial halfway through without warning and against my expressed objections.

    Harold William Edgar’s response: “It is unfortunate that this client did not recognize the problems he had with his own testimony in the case. This case went to a contested trial and the judge ruled against him. I do wish this client and his family well. This certainly was not the case of "its my lawyer's fault."”

    When you are looking for an attorney regarding a family law case, you are in an extremely vulnerable position. I was dealing with an immediate interstate child custody jurisdiction therefore, my case was very complicated; my five year old child is a resident of California and was kept in a different state after an agreed visitation schedule with the mother took place.
    When I first arrived at the law firm for my consultation about my case, Mr. Roark and Mr. Edgar began to get the facts about my case. Both Attorneys immediately started working on getting my child returned and I had not even retained them at that point in time. The billing for their services was a true representation for their Attorney and paralegal fees.
    I am very pleased and fortunate that I found the Law Offices of H. William Edgar. Hiring their services was the best decision. The Attorneys and their entire law staff are brilliant, highly experienced, knowledgeable, dedicated, dynamic, and they definitely know what they are doing according to family law. It was such a relief for me to finally have my case in the hands of this law firm, as they solely focus on what is in the best interest of the minor(s), as well as the best possible outcome for the party involved.
    I retained Attorney Jeremy Roark, whom handled my case personally throughout the entire court process. Mr. Roark is extremely experienced, organized, and knowledgeable, with an impressive work ethic and energy to represent you during the court process. Mr. Roark is a real go-getter when it comes to fight for your case, and he always came prepared to court. Mr. Roark always provided me with the best, honest advice to proceed during my court process. I am 100% satisfied with the outcome of my case.
    I highly recommend the Law Offices of H. William Edgar, as well as Attorney Jeremy Roark if you have a family law matter.

    Bill and his team guided me through the whole process step by step. I liked that the documents were exchanged electronically. My questions were answered promptly via phone calls or emails. I feel that both parties in my case received a fair judgment. I highly recommend them to friends and family.

    I wish I can express myself better here. Other than I seem to have really bad luck with every attorney I gotten. 10 years of crappie attorney just to bleed you out. Mr. Edgar is an attorney who offers his service but never really represents you at court, he always had someone else go for him. I don't know it that would of made any difference but I truly am disappointed of my out come in my courts. A year after we are continue with custody issues and child support. Will finish this review as my courts continue to add in the calendar.

    I recommend this office, they were very helpful in my divorce and got me what I needed. I wasn't stressed the day that I had to go to court and the day went very smoth. The only thing they failed to do is at the very end my ex has not follow though with the court order and the office has not falked up with me. You do get your paperwork but it's very hard to speak to your attorney a lot of times. But overall I would But I recommend this office anyway.

    Mr. Edgar, Mr. Roark and his entire staff were very professional at all times and willing to work with my case which was quite complicated. They provided me the support I needed in order to get through finalizing my divorce. Both Mr. Edgar and Mr. Roark, Charlene, Amy and Maritza promptly provided me with the documentation required by my mortgage company so that I could continue to fight in keeping my home which was in foreclosure. Both attorneys were always promptm well prepared and professional when representing me during court hearings. The lines of communication were continuously kept quite clear. There were no surprise charges or hidden fees. They were very accommodating and understanding of my situation. Everyone on his staff has gone above and beyond to help make sure my needs were met and maintained a high level of professionalism. I am completely satisfied with the end results and would highly recommend Mr. Edgar and his staff to anyone who is seeking to hire a divorce attorney.

    Mr Edgar and his staff provided excellent service during my divorce. What started out as simple, quickly turned into a case that involved a restraining order and move-away. Mr. Edgar and Mr Roark, always kept me informed and updated on my case. They guided me through the process, answering my many questions in a timely manner no matter what time of day I had them. What I appreciated most was that they did not promise I would win my case, but did everything they could to make that happen, which it did. Mr. Edgar's team were always prepared for court dates, had a professional demeanor at all times, and were well respected by the court. Sitting in a court room with the possibility of testifying is scary. Having the right team to present your case is necessary. My advice is to avoid divorce if at all possible, but if your needing an experienced and competent lawyer, than I would highly recommend Mr Edgar and his staff.
