    Posted by Deborah

    Ms. Straus is everything you hope for when you post a question on Avvo. She continually responded to my questions in a timely, informative, honest and thorough manner. I feel she would be a good lawyer to hire based upon her generous and clear communication skills. I wish her all the best!

    Ms. Straus answer the question I asked with no hesitation and with a lot of kindness. She has compassion for those who can't afford any longer attorney's fees. I have encounter a lot of mean attorneys that all they care is for money and won't even give you a bit of info "because they have bills to pay " . Ms Straus gave me the info I need to do this myself . thank you Edna!

    Ms. Straus posted a very useful response to my question on avvo.com. Then I followed up with her outside avvo.com using our e-mails. She was very prompt and courteous in providing me very useful information on my case. Ms. Straus is extremely an knowledgeable and helpful attorney. I will recommend her to any one.

  • Great service

    I have had Carroll do my Trust and then an update several years later. She is did a great job. She was sensitive to my needs and wants, but always presented all perspectives, even when I did not go with that particular point. I would recommend her for this to anyone. Any her price was very good: much lower than other's that I had considered.

  • Not Experienced in Area Where Question Was Posted

    1.0 star

    Posted by Gaby

    I posted a question in the bankruptcy practice area that was responded to by several attorneys, one of which was Ms. Straus. Ms. Straus' initial reply was an ambiguous comment that didn't answer my question. We exchanged several emails communications after that. After reviewing the email exchange, I realized that but for one question (if she practiced a in a specific area), I never actually received a specific response to my posted question.

    I was a paralegal/legal secretary for many years but my question was in an area of law in which I had little to no knowledge. While general practitioners possess a good working knowledge and experience in several areas of the law, they don't have sufficient knowledge to offer advice or answer questions in other areas. While Ms. Straus may have some knowledge of the area in which my question was posted, from the email exchange we conducted, it does not appear that she has insufficient knowledge to have replied to my question. She did offer a suggestion or two, but i didn't need a suggestion or advice, i needed an specific answer to a specific question, which I received from the other attorneys who responded. I tend to over-explain things and be wordy in an effort to relay as much information as possible in order to receive the best possible response. In this particular case, it appears I wasted not only her time but mine as well.

    I hired Ms. Straus to assist with a sticky post divorce situation and she was absolutely wonderful. A breath of fresh air! We have exchanged emails and a phone call or two and she immediately understood the problems and jumped in with both feet to assist. She was helpful, courteous, understanding, professional, prompt, and just a wonderful person. I will not hesitate to use Ms Straus for any legal issues in the future and I am certainly indebted to her for her help.

    I was a client of Edna for incorporating my company. When I spoke to colleagues who worked with other firms, I believe I should have received much more service for less charge. Won't got to her again.

    Edna Carroll Straus’s response: “PK says that wasn't her--and I have done NO other incorporation work this century. (Since Legalzoom and such took that market.) So, this says a lot, I think.”
  • Not enough can be said of Ms. Straus, but I will try.

    I can not say enough about this kind, intelligent, caring, rare attorney. She became that life long friend at my side through such a hard time. Not letting me fall, holding me up, encouraging me forward, giving me hope, and with honest concern. That alone is priceless, that alone never did I expect to find in my search for council. I would recommend Ms. Straus to only those wanting an angel on your side.

  • Carroll Straus is like no attorney I ever imagined or experienced!

    All I will say is, that I never imagined I would find an attorney as sensitive and who genuinely cared for a client’s predicament and situation beyond any fee that could be paid. The attention and care I received was way beyond legal advice, way beyond! You will not find many {if any} attorneys like this. I was very, very lucky to find Carroll and I was a basket case of worry and probably drove her nuts! She never gave up on me quite fortunately………………………..
