What is a personal injury case?
When someone is physically and/or emotionally injured because someone else was at fault or negligent, they may have a personal injury case.

The smartest lawyer in the room.

We had a complicated case that Edie was able to get to Mediation before a Judge. At the Mediation, it was clear Edie ran circles around the other lawyers. She was clearly the smartest lawyer in the room. I guess I should have known as she is a member of MENSA, which only allows member in the top 2% of IQ scores. We received a GREAT settlement. What a great and smart lawyer.” George – Philadelphia, PA
Complicated Case
Compassionate & Thorough Attorney

“My mother was in an accident while a passenger in a van. I knew my mother would not be comfortable with most attorneys. Edie was very compassionate and understanding. Yet, she was very tough with the insurance company. She was very thorough in getting all the medical bills paid. My mother received a settlement that I could not have imagined.” Elaine, Souderton – PA
Car Accident Case
My Dad settled his case and ended up with a nice size check to add to his retirement.

“When my Dad was fired from his job, we suspected it was because of his age. I knew I needed to call Edie. I wanted the best. I knew Edie had been selected by Philadelphia Magazine as a “Super Lawyer” and has been on TV multiple times. My Dad was thrilled with Edie at the initial hearing with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission. My Dad settled his case and ended up with a nice size check to add to his retirement. Edie is truly super!” Julie – Philadelphia, PA
