  • He is excellent in every way. The attorney to hire.

    “Excellent. The attorney to hire. I have practiced Criminal Law in the State of Michigan and in the United States Federal Court's for over 36 years. I am the father of a child who was recently charged with DWI in Ft. Myers, Florida. Mr. Edwards was retained. It is not easy to represent the child of an Attorney who has practiced Criminal Law for more than 36 years. Mr. Edwards was put to the test. He is excellent in every way. He has the personality, knowledge of the law, commitment to his clients and the connections to produce the best possible outcome. That is what he did!”

  • He is absolutely the best attorney I know.

    “I came across Brian Edwards after being burned by a lawyer who took my money and did nothing at all for my son. I was speaking with a friend one day because I was very upset about this lawyer who refused to refund me my money because he basically didn't know what he was doing, never submitted any papers to court or anything. This young lady said she heard about a lawyer who was known to be a very good lawyer (Brian Edwards). I called the office on a last hope, told him the circumstances and immediately he told me to come in and meet with him. The day that I came in and sat down and spoke to Brian I knew that this man needed to represent my son. I have never seen someone who really takes pride in their job and who really will fight for their client like he does. The charge was a very serious charge but after talking with my son he wanted the case. This is the honest to God truth he is absolutely the best attorney I know. I felt the amount was very reasonable, and I was absolutely happy with the outcome. If I ever hear of anyone who I think would need a lawyer I tell them Brian Edwards. I truly believe in him, he's not someone who is just there for the money. He's really part of our family now, well at least he's welcomed in our family (lol). Thank you Brian you are truly appreciated.”

  • My mind was put at ease after speaking with.

  • If I ever need a lawyer, you will be the first one I call!

    “Just a quick note thanking you for all your help with my son. If I ever need a lawyer, you will be the first one I call!! Thanks again.”

  • With Brian's help, guidance, and expertise, my charges were dropped before it ever went to a hearing.

    “I consumed way too much alcohol and ended up in an illogical disagreement with my wife that escalated into a physical altercation. My wife called the police and I was arrested and went to jail. This process was quite scary and new to me. After getting out of jail the following day, due to posting a bond, I called Brian Edwards to represent me in this case. Brian alleviated my fear by explaining to me the process for my hearing. He worked with me to set-up a payment plan that would work for both of us. He charged a flat fee and told me that whether it got done quickly or took a very long time, the fee would be the same. I made some big life changes, like quitting drinking, to ensure this would not happen again. Brian used that information to our benefit with the prosecuting attorney. He handled everything that needed to be handled in a timely and professional way. He was quick to respond to any inquiry and keep me in the know as to how the case was progressing. The net result of my case is that with Brian's help, guidance, and expertise, my charges were dropped before it ever went to a hearing, my life changes have stuck, my wife and I are back together and working on healing our marriage.”

  • Good guy who gets good results.

    “Attorney Edwards is a great attorney who is in your corner. Good guy who gets good results.”

  • Mr. Edwards saved us time, money and, most importantly; gave me peace of mind.

    “Brian Edwards handled a case for my minor son recently. We live in MD and the case was in FL so I was overwhelmed, nervous, and had no idea what to do. One phone call to Mr. Edwards and I was instantly reassured. He handled my son’s case all the way from the first appearance to the end. My son and I only had to appear before the judge on one occasion; for the final disposition, which was extremely favorable thanks to Mr. Edwards' expertise! Mr. Edwards saved us time, money and, most importantly; gave me peace of mind going through a procedure I am not familiar with at all! I can't recommend Mr. Edwards and his firm strongly enough! Thanks again Brian!”

  • We always feel more comfortable executing a bond when you're on the case.

    “These days we bondsmen are hearing more and more horror stories on how attorneys are cutting their rates but their service is no better than the public defender's office but not all attorneys are the same. Many of our clients swear by you Mr. Edwards. We always feel more comfortable executing a bond when you're on the case.”

    “Brian I want to personally thank you AGAIN for all your hard work on such VERY short notice. You did your thing and you did it fast! The judge was tough but in the end you got me the one thing I really wanted and needed! I am forever thankful for you not treating me as just another piece of paper-- I felt as if You actually Do care about your clients. You're not fake, greedy or just rushing along. Not only were you PATIENT but you were PASSIONATE, HONEST and TRUTHFUL in everything you did for ME!! Those are the qualities you have that make a difference!!!! Getting the deal we wanted was just the icing on the cake. You answered all my questions and made me feel like you were really fighting for ME!!! I don't plan on ever needing an attorney again but anyone who gets in trouble in Florida should definitely look to you for their defense. With all your years of experience in Florida law & being a former prosecutor YOU definitely have the upper hand!!!! Thank you again!”

  • Having you return calls, follow through, and facilitate a reduced sentence helped us greatly.

    “Dear Mr. Edwards, Quite often in life, situations lead us to interact with those who offer service and help to those who need it. Unfortunately, your help was necessary to assist our son, Dana Berndt, with a recent legal entanglement. Fortunately for us and our son Dana, we retained your services to assist us through Dana’s arrest and pending charges. Past experiences have lowered our expectations of the legal system and those who practice in it, but you should know that we consider you an exception. We are so very pleased with your efforts in Dana’s case and wanted you to understand our appreciation. Having you return calls, follow through with appropriate actions, and facilitate a reduced sentence for Dana had helped us greatly. For that, we wanted to express our gratitude and recognize you for your professionalism.”

  • His rate was very reasonable and his services are worth every dollar he charges, and more.

    “When my son was charged with a very serious felony, I immediately called Brian Edwards. He created a precise plan of action from the first consultation and went above and beyond to ensure that no detail would be missed, every motion possible be filed, and every person deposed that he needed to question. He told us it may take time, but that that is sometimes necessary and can make a big difference in the outcome. Brian kept us informed of any new information as soon as it came to his attention. His rate was very reasonable and his services are worth every dollar he charges, and more. My son was expecting some jail time and heavy fines, as it is sometimes difficult to prove your innocence, but, Brian's hard work, knowledge, and dedication got the case COMPLETELY dismissed. We were amazed and elated! We have no doubt that this most likely would not have been the outcome without the expertise, persistence, dedication, and caring nature of Brian Edwards. I highly recommend him to everyone involved in a criminal case. Thank you, Brian and Staff.”

  • He is an attorney who has great confidence and yet is humble and honest.

    “My son was arrested on July 1, 2015 for possession of controlled substance without a prescription the problem was he for the first time in eighteen years was on probation for a misdemeanor also having to do with drugs. We were in the middle of a move and starting a business. Of course there is never a good time for something like this. The attorney we have for the child custody case he has going on with his little girls mom, highly recommended Brian Edwards and I am so glad she did. He is an attorney who has great confidence and yet is humble and honest. This case was a tough one and we had reasons to worry because of my sons past records of eighteen years ago and recent events that he would have to serve a much longer sentence than just thirty days for violation of probation. The fact that he has a great many years of experience in the dealings of the court system in Lee county and other surrounding areas. He also has several years working in state attorney office makes him exceptionally qualified to represent any one in a criminal case. He is a good family man and very compassionate to others and at the same time will be honest with you. I was especially impressed with how he always returned our calls even if it had to be after hours. Its like he understood our urgency to have questions answered. I wills always be grateful to him and recommend him highly to anyone who is in need of a criminal attorney. Give him a call first because it will be worth your while.”

  • His fees are reasonable and I believe he secured the best possible outcome for me.

    “I hired Brian Edwards to represent me in a felony assault case in April 2012. As a 68 year old male, it was my first arrest and I had no clue what I was facing until I met with Brian. Brian walked me through a chronology of events and timelines, thoroughly explaining the process and advising me of what to expect. I was never disappointed or surprised. Brian is an excellent communicator and never speaks above you or tries to impress you with his vast knowledge and experience in the legal system. Brian is a well-known and well respected attorney throughout the Lee County court system. Those two things coupled with Brian's low key tenacity makes him a very credible and formidable defender for you. I found Brian to be very accessible and responsive to my questions throughout the nine month process. His fees are reasonable and I believe he secured the best possible outcome for me without going to trial. Whether this is the first time you require legal counsel or not, I highly recommend you talk to Brian before you hire any attorney. I know I will.”

  • I would run to him in a minute if I need legal help.

    “He sat in as a sub for my lawyer 2 times. I wish I had known him last year. I would run to him in a minute if I need legal help. Today he subbed for my lawyer who was on vacation. He zoomed in and threw the right hard ball to make it happen for me. Done and over. What an amazing lawyer and caring person. Called me last week, reviewed over the phone and went to action in court. I am the victim of sexual assault and he took awesome care of me. Highly recommend him as a lawyer for anyone. He cares for the client - period. Good or bad he cares for you as a person. You can't go wrong with him.”

  • I have dealt with many attorneys and none have been as forthcoming and caring as Brian.

    “I have had Brian Edwards represent me for the last 2 years and if it wasn’t for Brian I wouldn’t be able to write this review that he so willing deserves. When I was detained he kept both me and my family in the loop and worked out the most amazing deal that anyone can imagine. I have dealt with many attorneys and none have been as forthcoming and caring as Brian. Please take time to consider him for you legal needs as I can assure you that you will be in the best of hands.”

  • Brian Edwards was amazing!

    “Brian Edwards was amazing! He got a warrant lifted for a violation of probation. I'm no longer living in Florida and he was able to handle my case without me having to return. He also handled my case for less than I was quoted by other attorneys. Thanks Brian for helping me get through this trying time.”

  • If and when you need an attorney, let Brian be the one.

    “Brian proved to me that there are good and honest attorneys still in practice. He helped someone I know that was is a very serious situation, and if not for his excellent skills at practicing law, this person would have been in a lot of trouble. I hope you never do, but if and when you need an attorney, let Brian be the one. Thank you Brian from the very bottom of my heart.”

    “I am a Daughter living in Alabama and my 74 year old father was charged with resisting arrest without violence in Bonita Springs, FL. He has RA and diabetes . I called Brain because of his reviews on here and he was able to get the case thrown out before going to court. We are very happy with Brian and he knows how to get things done. It was great to be able to talk with him even though I wasn't able to meet him and was out of state. If you need an attorney, call Brian!”

    “Dealing with Brian Edwards for legal representation was a very good experience. In an emergency situation, he was responsive, very helpful and always accessible to help us navigate the legal system. A small firm with a personal touch.”

  • I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your services to anyone and everyone.

    “I am a personal friend of one of your clients and his family. Having been referred to you by a previous client I watched you handle this case with complete professionalism , and when things got confusing for me you took the time to explain the process. You gave straight up answers, advise and never misled. Your conduct in court in my opinion was exceptional, you fought for him. You asked all the right questions. Ones I had even forgotten about and I would say I am usually very thorough when someone’s life is on the line. Kudos! Mr. Edwards ! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your services to anyone and everyone who is in the market for a top rate criminal defense attorney.”

    Cynthia

  • He makes you feel like your case is the top priority and he listens to you.

    “I needed a lawyer to help me with a felony case, it was grand larceny and grand theft. I chose Brian because besides his knowledge and experience, he cares; you are not just a client. He makes you feel like your case is the top priority and he listens to you. He can be reached so easily anytime I had a question he would be there to explain it. His knowledge is another fantastic plus. He worked for the State Attorney's office for over 20 years. That's not something every lawyer can claim. With that kind of representation my case was DISMISSED. There isn't a lawyer that has all the attributes that Mr. Edwards has. Pick the best, pick Brian.”

    Past Client

  • Brian is one of the area's best DUI attorneys.

    “Brian is one of the area's best DUI attorneys. He was able to resolve my case quickly and with favorable results. I spoke with many DUI lawyers before deciding to proceed with Brian and I am extremely satisfied with his service. His years of experience with DUI cases, specifically in the Fort Myers really paid off. Brian's office responds quickly and dealing with his firm made a less than fortunate circumstance bearable. I would recommend him to anyone, especially when seeking a DUI attorney. Thanks again.”
