Successful Verdicts & Settlements

Interested in finding out about some of the recent and notable cases handled by the team at The Edwards Law Firm? We are proud of the following verdicts and settlements because they represent real changes in our clients' lives and futures. Each result has provided a foundation for a more stable, brighter future for a person or family that has suffered egregious wrongs. In addition to reviewing our recent results, please feel free to call our attorneys at 361-320-6752 to see how we can help you.

Understanding Case Results

Our firm take cases on a contingency fee basis. This means we don’t receive compensation unless we win your case. You may have seen commercials or attorney sites claiming large amounts of money won on a case. Just because there is a large jury award doesn’t mean that this amount was actually collected – a new trial could have been granted, the judgment reversed on appeal, or the defendant didn’t have sufficient financial resources to pay the award. Also, those amounts often include the money that will be given to the attorney, not just what the client will receive.

Below you will see the “net to client” amount from some of our more prominent cases. For the purpose of honesty and transparency, we show you this amount so that you can see what the client actually received as a settlement. Please note that these are just examples of past cases, and not a certain indication of the amount you will receive if your case is won. Every case is unique, and we look forward to speaking with you about your individual needs. Finally, not all our results are listed, even some of the largest, because of their sensitive nature.
