Peace of Mind, 6/04/2015

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.

Great Services

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!!!

Outstanding Lawyer

After experiencing a severe reaction to a vaccine, I sought legal help. My prayers were answered when Mr. Edwards agreed to represent me. Mr. Edwards said my case was complicated, but I had a legitimate claim and he would fight for my best interests. Mr. Edwards was true to his word. He worked diligently on my case for more than two years, never letting me give up. He was always professional and compassionate. Thanks to Mr. Edwards, I received compensation for my vaccine injury which has allowed me to remain in my home and to provide for my son. Words cannot express my gratitude to Mr. Edwards. A Thankful Teacher and Parent. PWL

Our daughter's HERO

Our daughter was injured by her 18 month vaccinations. We were referred to Mr. Edwards and immediately he began to prepare our case. It is because of his belief in us, his hard work and his ability to assemble the best team of experts that we won this case. Mr. Edwards has put in years of hard work on our case, he has been thorough and professional, he has lifted us up when we have felt so beaten down. Words can never explain the gratitude that we feel for his commitment to us and to our daughter. Because of him our disabled daughter will be able to have her needs met for the rest of her life. We highly recommend Mr. Edwards and his incredible staff.

Everything you need in lawyer

2 years ago i was injured in an auto accident and was reffered to Mr. Edwards by a family member. From the day i called him until the time we settled he stayed in touch with me and my family. He and his staff are very professional people. They handled my case very well and fast too. They also got me a very nice settlement and I was greatly satisfied. I really like the fact that he called me personally after my surgery to ask how I was doing and making sure that I was alright. If anyone who I know is ever in need of a good lawyer I would be sure to refer them to him.

Attorney Donald P. Edwards

I was referred to Attorney Donald Edwards by members of my family. He'd basically been their one-stop legal shop for several decades. When I was injured in a car accident, the first thing I did was call Attorney Donald Edwards. Mr. Edwards and his devoted legal team put their experience to work for me immediately (just a day after my accident!). They helped me through every step of the process and kept me updated. Attorney Donald Edwards got me a great settlement in a very short amount of time! To this day, we still rely on Mr. Edwards for all of our family's legal needs. He's trustworthy, experienced and hard working. I would definitely recommend hiring Attorney Donald P. Edwards.

Best Attorney in Atlanta

Mr. Donald Edwards took my case against the US HHS relating to a vaccine injury. It took a long time coming but he was able to get me a very commendable settlement. He and his office staff were always available to me and he never once made me feel like I was wasting my time and/or his. I am very thankful to him for being the wonderful attorney and person that he is.

Attorney Edwards is the Best!

After I fell on a wet floor and fractured my ankle I didn't know where to turn for legal help. I knew I didn't want one of those TV lawyers and Attorney Edwards and his law firm were recommended to me by a family friend. That recommendation was a blessing to me because I found not only sound legal advice, but also a compassionate attorney and staff that encouraged me along my road to recovery. When I became dissatisfied with one of the surgeons I had used before my fall, Attorney Edwards recommended a surgeon who was as compassionate, professional, and skilled as he was. Attorney Edwards and his staff were always accessible to me when I called and kept me well informed of the developments of my claim. When Attorney Edwards felt that the insurance company for the location where I fell treated me unfairly with an inadequate offer, Attorney Edwards did not hesitate to recommend filing a lawsuit. His tenacity on my behalf resulted in a quick financial settlement of which I am extremely well pleased. Thank you Attorney Edwards! I found not only a good lawyer but also a friend. I bless you and appreciate you for helping me throughout my healing - physically, emotionally and financially. ....G.S., Atlanta, GA
