    In a brief summary I developed Gillian Barre Syndrome in 2010 after receiving the flu vaccination. Attorney Edwards and his paralegal, Angela were easy to work with. He was able to settle my case with an outcome in my favor. I would recommending using attorney Don Edwards if you were about to start a vaccination case in Atlanta.

    Treating my injury was time consuming and sometimes overwhelming. I had never been in a situation like this before. From the start, Mr. Edwards put our minds at ease and did not add to the stress of the situation. We really appreciated the updates and the step-by-step instructions. At no time were we in doubt that Mr. Edwards and his staff, especially Angela, were on top of things. In our opinion, they facilitated the best possible outcome.

    I would like to say that the law offices of Donald P. Edwards gave me the best defense I could have asked for. He was professional, courteous and stayed on top of the case for two (2) years and the amount was not a very large amount. In spite of the amount he did a fantastic job. So big or small that has no bearings on the fine job that he will do for you. His office would return your phone calls as promised, and it didn't take four or five days, and to me this means a lot. There is no professional coutesy anymore, but I found that not to be the case with Mr. Edward's office. He kept you abreast of what was going on all through the case. Overall I think that Mr Edwards did a fine job. Thank you so much. If you have a case that needs a real lawyer, contact The law offices of Donald P. Edwards you want be disappointed!!!
