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

A year ago my son and I was involve in a terrible car accident where my son was taken to Scottish Rite hospital, were he spent eleven days. Attorney Edwards was referred by a good of my husband. From the start of the case to the ending, he kept us involved in every correspondance between the insurance company and himself, never did I had to call for an update. The end result was worth the hassle and time. My family and I recommend Attorney Donald Edwards and his law firm to get the job done right!
