Client Reviews
Alejandro (Alex) Tagle January 14, 2022
A surreal, legal, and moral victory for a father and son - summed up as a blessing! I had financial issues and many other challenges. He is not the cheapest - but worth it. While others thought I should just yield (odds were against me, to the non-professional). Things looked gleam - but not to Ed and his team. Remember, this a business at the end of the day, but Ed showed compassion and empathy. My son and I are enjoying a humble and joyous life together. I highly recommend Ed and his team. Did Mr. Butler provide satisfactory legal services? -Absolutely. He was understanding and patient. Was Mr. Butler knowledgeable about the law? -Yes. He proceeded, in my opinion, seamlessly. Did Mr. Butler resolve your issue? -Yes - and then some, above my expectations. Did Mr. Butler keep you informed and up to date? -Yes - constantly and until the end. Was Mr. Butler courteous and professional? -100%+ Was Mr. Butler caring and empathetic? -100%+

Solid Legal Advice Ed gave me advice that was easy to understand and relevant to my concerns. He readily returned my calls even into the evening hours. Ed worked well with the opposing lawyers to protect my interests. I ended up with a ruling that was better than I ex pected.
