"I was happy with the fact that I was handled with care and honesty, and I did not feel as if I was being talked down to. Attorney Edmonds is very kind."

S. Woods

The prompt and open communication was excellent! Ms. Edmonds is very knowledgeable regarding the laws and tenants rights. She was thorough in her explanation of the case and how she planned to proceed, as well as the possible outcomes.

S. Levis

"I completely understood all aspects of my case, and Attorney Edmonds won my case. Paula is a great case manager and also very thorough in her explanations and communication was always prompt and timely. I felt at ease, confident and well informed throughout the entire process of my case.

N. Yang

"Attorney Edmonds thoroughly explained all the options I had available to me in a way that was clear and concise.  She was super professional and provided honest insight into the likelihood of success if I decided to move forward. I was most impressed with her integrity. She didn't try to push me to move forward even though she could've made money from me doing so.  Instead, she educated me on my options and allowed me to make an informed decision.  My experience with her set the standard in what I now expect from attorneys."
