Few law firms can match our years of experience and dedication to our clients in the community.

Edwards and Ragatz, P.A. Jacksonville Attorneys are leaders and community fixtures who help businesses and individuals resolve complex legal problems including medical malpractice, personal injury, business torts and product liability claims. Peer lawyers rely on us to take on complicated cases that are out of their realm of experience.

Trusting your legal matter to an inexperienced attorney or an attorney that prefers to settle cases quickly is not wise. We believe in the power of the trial. We believe in protecting the rights of our clients. Most importantly, we believe in you.

Foundation of Our Company

Here is what we believe really sets us apart and what we have as the foundation of our firm.

1. You have to know the facts better than anyone in the courtroom.

2.  You need to know the law. You need to know what the law is and what it should be.

3.  You need to know the client’s true needs. You need to know the human impact this has had on them, on their family members, and what they really need to help them. When you believe and know all three of those components of the case, you can truly represent the case.
