Have to say, Ed has done a great job so far. Is he a lawyer, who in the end charges by the hour? Yes. But he was open and honest, and it didn't seem like he was trying to drag out a case to earn more. To be fair, both situations I had with him didn't exactly encourage that kind of behavior, but he seemed to try to get to the root of the problem and address it as quickly as possible, and has had my best interests in mind. My family has had plenty of issues with lawyers abusing the pay by the hour or court appearance model. I can only speak from the limited experience I had, but what I've seen, I'd recommend his, and Lucas Law's service.
