Client Reviews
"I first hired Thomas Edwards to defend me and my daughter in the early 1990s. He put his heart into that case.Of all the attorneys in the state of Florida he would be the one I would call, if need for an attorney ever arose again." Jan
"We are from Lake City, Florida. As parents, we sought the help of Mr. Edwards in my daughter's behalf. As a young lady, she had acquired multiple felonies with the prospect of 10-15 years in prison facing her. Mr. Edwards heard our case, took it on with confidence, and got her sentence reduced to 10 years probation, and restitution. That was 8 years ago, and my daughter is married, has a son, and is doing great. She hasn't even had a traffic violation. Because Mr. Edwards believed in us and took a chance, we will be forever be in his debt. He is a great lawyer, with a very big heart." Colin
