At the Claire Edwards Law Firm, we focus on family law tailored to each client's needs. Whether the client needs ex parte emergency custody or is simply finalizing a divorce after having lived separate and apart for several years, we are happy to help handle your legal matter.

We believe in legal excellence and focus on getting the best outcome for each client. We keep clients in the loop during the course of court proceedings, and whenever clients call, they are likely to have a chance to speak with an attorney promptly.

Divorce and custody is a very emotional and trying time in a person's life. Therefore we make the legal process as exacting as possible so the client can spend their time focusing on their emotions and healing. We are in the business of helping people.

About me: I have been admitted to practice law since 2012, and I served as a judicial law clerk after law school. I started my own practice in 2013 and worked part time while I held other full time positions, until, in 2015, I was able to start my own business full time. Since 2015, I've handled numerous family law cases, and I've worked every week on misdemeanor cases. I've also litigated business law cases, completed contract review, and handled personal/work injury cases. I am committed to serve my clients with compassion and empathy. Each client is different, and I tailor each client's case to their needs.
