Edward's interest in the law began as a teenager. It was then that he first witnessed the disadvantages the average person faces when forced into a legal battle by a party with more resources or experience. As an attorney, Edward now fights to level the playing field and make sure his clients are never bullied by those who would take advantage of the system. While Edward's practice is focused primarily on accident and personal injury law, he continues to make time for family law and criminal defense cases.
