I had a great experience working with Perdue Law Group. Ed is responsive, straight forward and easy to work with. He quickly responded my questions. Kept me well informed as to where we were in the process. He took extra care to help me understand the possible outcomes and next steps to plan for. I would recommend Perdue Law Group.
When starting a relationship with a new client we typically begin with an introductory fact gathering call or meeting. This may be followed by a period of document analysis or research. Soon thereafter we get back together with the client and jointly agree on a game plan and budget estimate if appropriate.
I am a former Marine officer and a graduate of the University of Notre Dame Law School. I practiced law at the highest levels for a "big law" firm in Michigan and am well established in the state legal community as an expert litigator and trial lawyer.

After leaving active duty in the Marine Corps I searched for a profession where I could continue to be of service to my community. I found the leadership skills and principles of war I learned and practiced as a Marine officer translated well to working as a trial lawyer. After 23 years at a large firm, I started my own business in 2020 to serve and assist a broader range of clients with their legal issues.
I work with clients ranging from the largest multi-national corporations to individuals and the smallest mom and pop shops.
I was at a luncheon for the Grand Rapids Bar Association recently when the judge who was speaking recalled a trial we had together when he was in private practice. He pointed out that I was well skilled and aggressive in trial, but also possessed a level of civility that allowed us to work together outside of the courtroom to explore settlement options.
It is important to speak to the attorney you are considering hiring to verify that they have experience with your particular type of case or issue. Then ensure that you get an estimate for the services to be provided and create milestones or decision points along the projected trajectory of your case to ensure that you are roughly on track and on budget as the matter progresses.
