Robert Edwards leaning against a graffitied wall

From an early age, Bob has had the desire to help others in their time of need. When he was considering his future prospects, it was easy to eliminate jobs that wouldn't allow him to help people. Even with no legal background in his family or his associates, Bob recognized that a legal career would provide him many opportunities to help others. He had a knack for language and desire to help people out of tough situations they found themselves in through no fault of their own, which ultimately led him to pursue his law degree. 

Education & Experience

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree at Arizona State University in 1973, Bob pursued a law degree at the University of Idaho College of Law. By 1978, he received his Juris Doctor degree and passed the  state bar in Minnesota shortly after graduation 

Bob’s first job out of law school was with a general practice where he found himself taking on lots of personal injury cases specifically and learned a lot along the way. That experience quickly gave him the focus and confidence he needed to open his own firm, and the rest is history.

With each case I take on, my client's cause becomes my cause as well— and I will do whatever it takes to get the best possible result.
