About The Edwards Law Firm

One Clear Mission: Our Clients

From the time our founding partner William R. Edwards began taking on personal injury cases in 1962, clients’ rights have been the main focus for The Edwards Law Firm. Getting to the truth and securing the best results for clients are the principles that guide everything we do. More than 55 years later, that clear mission carries The Edwards Law Firm forward and inspires us to work hard for justice. Today, we have a slate of personal injury attorneys, paralegals, and staff managing a variety of cases, investigating accidents and injuries, and working to achieve fair settlements for clients.

To find out how we can help you, call (361) 541-6333 for a free, private consultation.

Every Case Demands Personal Attention

For well over five decades, The Edwards Law Firm has been handling personal injury matters in the Corpus Christi area of Texas. In fact, all of our attorneys focus on personal injury-specific cases, so you can be assured our practice is focused on your needs. We work to ensure you get the fair compensation you need, and this includes recovering lost wages, medical expenses, and more – whatever it takes for you to move forward with your life.

Our Corpus Christi personal injury attorneys handle cases from motor vehicle accidents and product defects to workplace injury cases, insurance disputes, and more. Our experienced attorneys, trained forensic investigators, and skilled support staff will get to know your case inside and out.

Mark of Excellence

In Texas, Board Certification means an attorney has substantial, relevant experience in a select field of law as well as demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of law. Few Texas attorneys have answered the challenge laid down 36 years ago by the Supreme Court of Texas and the State Bar of Texas to “…serve the public interest advance the standards of the legal profession.” The Edwards Law Firm is proud to be among them.

William R. Edwards and Billy Edwards are both Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Billy Edwards is also Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

Our Clients Always Come First

Sure, you want to make sure your lawyer has the credentials to take your case. But your case is not about us. It’s about you. You can feel confident in the knowledge that the award-winning attorneys at The Edwards Law Firm have many combined years of experience in handling personal injury cases just like yours.

Some of our cases have even improved safety measures for the general public and effected laws that prevent future injuries. That’s the kind of commitment we make to our clients and the community.

Ethical Standards Are Our Backbone

Honest practices make for a lasting business. Attorneys are the first line of defense for those who have been injured, so we take the trust our clients place in us very seriously. William Edwards, Sr. founded The Edwards Law Firm with this principle, and his legal work backed up this philosophy. From an early case fighting for civil justice in the courtroom, to helping pass a law against attorney “ambulance chasing”, the firm holds its own lawyers and the legal profession to the highest standards possible.

If you are seeking a strong legal advocate to help you after an unexpected accident or injury, call on our team of award-winning Corpus Christi personal injury attorneys. We thoroughly investigate all aspects of a case so we can accurately determine the cause. Then we effectively litigate so we can seek proper compensation from responsible parties – so all your income, medical, home care, and independent living needs are met. We certainly look forward to serving you.
