"This was my first attorney experience. I didn't know what to expect and was very nervous at first. Ed and Julie made me feel comfortable. Ed explained everything I needed to know and answered any questions that I had. Ed worked hard on my case and the outcome was very good. I was treated with respect and compassion. I would recommend Ed to anyone and if I ever need an attorney again, I would return to Ed."
