Early in his career, Ed developed a strong reputation as an aggressive litigator, trying hundreds of civil and criminal cases throughout the various courts of the region. Meanwhile, Ed developed an active commercial landlord practice and a comprehensive transactional business practice, assisting clients with entity formation, sales and acquisitions, leasing, employment matters, partnership disputes, construction disputes, evictions, and debt collection.
