About

Edward Younger

Attorney-At-Law


I didn’t grow up aspiring to be a lawyer. My background is in business, music and technology. It wasn’t until I was in my mid-thirties that I decided to enroll in law school. I was a married father of two, enjoying a successful career in the high tech sector, when I saw the far reaches of the law surrounding me in my personal and professional life. We live in a legalistic society where mistakes can be costly. By studying the law, I could help my family avoid the everyday legal pitfalls that we have to navigate. I carry that same approach into my practice as I try to protect my clients.

My goal is to provide professional legal services with compassion, integrity, and value. I believe prevention and planning before legal problems arise is the best way to operate. Too often people put off addressing their legal matters until it is too late. At that point there is conflict and unnecessary expense. I’d like to change that paradigm. I believe my clients appreciate access to professional legal counsel at reasonable rates.
