Edward W. Floyd

In practicing law, I strive to thoroughly understand the client’s objectives for each matter and then to develop and implement an effective strategy for achieving those aims. My approach reflects my background of twenty-plus years of active and reserve military service. I employ a planning process, assertively implement the resulting plan, and always remain cognizant of the fact that the plan may need to change. What I enjoy most about that process is delivering successful results for the client.
