About Edward


Edward Joy realizes estate planning is about far more than preparing documents. It’s about gaining peace of mind, knowing you and your loved ones will be taken care during your life and after you pass away.  

Estate Planning


Let's put it this way: who do you trust with the lives of someone you love?  Because when you get into Estate Planning that's what you're doing: entrusting a stranger with what will be some of the most critical times of you and your loved ones lives.

There are not many people I'd trust with those closest to me, and it's not often one says this of an attorney they hire, but that's how I feel about Edward.  Trusted him to do what was right for me and my family, and I still do.

When I whined to him about “Why would I need these Estate Planning documents?”  Edward gently walked me through the not fun things that could happen.

What I love about Edward is that he's a frighteningly geeky mixture of crazy-brilliant, litigation attorney (which makes him look at your needs from a “how will someone attempt to screw with this” eye), combined with bullet proof personal ethics that are so watertight you wonder if such a person really can exist. Especially an attorney. Like I said: trusted him then, trust him now.
