Brian Patrick Edwards: Attorney with McKinley Irvin AV stamp icon
Attorney Awards


Brian Edwards started his career as a therapist, where he often served as a court-appointed counselor for mentally ill patients. And while he found professional satisfaction from helping his clients, he came to realize that he could have more of an impact by advocating for them in the court room.

With his listening and conflict resolution skills, honed through his years as a therapist, and because he’s driven by a desire to help people who are going through difficult transitions, he chose family law.

“This is the area of law that really matters the most. It touches on the most fundamental pieces of peoples’ lives: their family, their children, and their financial security.”

Brian relates to his family law clients with genuine understanding, and he is especially effective in high conflict cases. He has significant trial experience and is particularly knowledgeable in non-parental custody and de facto parentage matters. He feels most gratified when he can improve the welfare of children.
