"I had an amazing experience with Attorney Edwards. If you need someone who is going to fight for your rights as a father then she is definitely your person. I had a rough year with a lot of paper work and hearings that I know I would not have made it through without her being there to walk me through every step! She is extremely knowledgeable and will not tell you a lie just to keep your business.. Get ready for the brutal honest truth because she is definitely going to give it to you. Just do what she tells you and everything will be fine and flow smoothly!"

" Attorney Edwards and her team of representatives are awesome! They were fast and efficient with my case, and everybody was always polite and professional. I heard about Attorney Edwards from a friend and I will be recommending her to others."

- Client

"Tessie Edwards is the simply the best and a winner. I went through a nasty divorce that threatened my parental rights, retirement and property. My ex made false allegations, hid assets and hired multiple attorneys that included high profile expensive law firms. None of which intimidated Tessie. Each time we went to court Tessie won. She dominated the court room and vigorously fought for me. Thanks to Tessie I have my children, my retirement, my share of investments and most importantly my piece of mind."

- Client

"I was referred to Mrs. Edwards' firm by a mutual friend. Mrs. Edwards and her staff have far exceeded my expectations. They showed empathy, compassion and at times they made me feel like I was more than just a client. I will diffidently recommend her firm to anyone who might need her services."

- Client

"I can't say enough great things about Ms. Edwards. A friend of mine who is also a lawyer referred me to her to handle my divorce. So I called her for a free consultation, in which she was very polite, professional and very knowledgeable. I knew she was the one. When I first met with her she seemed pretty intimidating at first glance. We got straight down to business with all the details and facts. When leaving she gave me a tight hug. I knew that she would do a great job and a weight was lifted off my chest. So we had our first hearing for temporary child support, sole use of property and car, in which my husband only wanted to give me $300 but I ended up getting double that and sole use of everything. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. She really did her thing in the courtroom. Very knowledgeable, prepared, she has a great rapport with the judges and I absolutely love her. This is only the beginning. I know with Ms. Edwards I can rest assured that she's got it!!"

- Client

" Mrs.Edwards was the best lawyer I've ever had! She represented my case better than I could of ever imagined! I was more than satisfied with her professional and aggressive approach with my case! I would highly recommend Tessie Edwards to anyone that actually cares about getting their case won and handled appropriately!!!! "
