For over twenty years John Edwards has practiced personal injury litigation. John began his legal career representing insurers in injury claims. In 1992, John formed the current firm and began a practice focused on representing injured people in claims adverse to insurers. In 2004, he joined forces with Kurt Holzer in the effort to protect regular people in claims against insurers.
John Edwards brings a unique set of skills to the personal injury arena. Having worked both for and against insurers, he has an understanding of how to present information to the insurance adjustors in a fashion that allows them to pay maximum value on claims. Over the course of his career, he has developed relationships with those whom he opposes based on experience, integrity and trust. John spent 13 years teaching as an adjunct at Boise State University (Business Law and Business Ethics) and uses his skills as a teacher to help adverse parties understand the losses sustained by his clients.
