I contacted this law firm on 11/28/16 because I was served with a notice to appear regarding custody and support of my son. After putting in hours of research I found that initial retainers involving these matters in the Bakersfield area (I called 8 other family lawyers) ranged from $2500.00-$5000.00. I was shocked that Edward's law firm quoted me an initial retainer fee of $7500.00! And to put the cherry on top he mandates all his clients to come into his office for an initial 1-2 hour consultation which costs at ADDITIONAL $880.00! After hearing these prices I chose to hire another Bakersfield family law lawyer for $3000.00 who happens to be a certified family law specialist and charges his clients $0.00 for the initial consultation fee. It doesn't matter how many awards etc. Edward has received, his prices are outrages. I could have hired him because I make six figures a year but to me and tons of other people...nothing justifies an initial retainer of $7500.00 + the $880.00 consultation fee. Shop around people.

Mr. Thomas made sure I got everything I was entitled to. He got things done for me that other attorneys told me were impossible. His staff is very attentive and paved the way for a smoother road than I expected. He is worth every penny.

Getting divorced is perhaps one of the most stressful events in life. Ed Thomas made the pathway smoother when my x was extremely impossible to deal with. He accomplished my goals and years later, though it cost a great deal in cash, he was worth every penny. I highly recommend his skills in negotiating and keeping on point.
