Claire Bergeron Edwards

Reading and writing bring me joy, and I focused my interests at an early age on the law because it is full of written details.  Soon I learned that the complexity and structure of the law are also hugely appealing to me. Then, as I began attending court, drafting pleadings, and maintaining correspondence, I discovered I love advocating on behalf of my clients and protecting individuals’ rights.

Advocating for the rights my clients hold dear frees them to focus on their work and live their lives. And that matters as much to me as it does to them.

Legal Representation

Relationships Driven

Undergoing a serious family law issue can make you feel confused about your future and how to protect your family and assets.    Divorce, child custody, and support disputes are difficult experiences and emotionally taxing.  Before making any rash decisions, speak with an attorney who can pave the road for the legal process peculiar to family law and take a relationships driven approach.
