Honestly if I could give more than 5 stars I absolutely would. My wife and I were buying our first home, and Ed and his team made the process infinitely easier to understand and go through. Ashley was on top of things and gave me very regular check ins and updates and was able to answer all of my questions and address all of my concerns. Ed is an entertaining guy who loves to banter (and eat snacks!) and he made the closing process a very smooth and enjoyable experience. All-in-all an excellent team who, despite being very busy, I'm sure, made me feel like I was their only client. Responsive, friendly, knowledgeable.
He's a great attorney, very thorough
Edward Witas and his assistant, Ashley, represented us in the purchase of a home. They were professional, friendly, extremely responsive and helpful throughout the process. It was a first time purchase for my 22 year old son and we switched the primary buyer AND lenders midway through. This created extra work for Ed and Ashley but they never flinched! They were true advocates for us - I appreciate that Ed called me when I had questions. I was very impressed with Ed at the closing. He sat next to my son and expertly and clearly explained each document to be signed in a way that was easy to understand, focused on the key points about each doc and gave examples to ensure my son understood each document. Plus Ed has a good sense of humor and made the closing less tedious. I highly recommend Edward J. Witas & Associates.
I worked predominately with Ed's assistant Ashley. She was very professional and helpful throughout the home buying process. Both seem committed to their clients. I had a bumpy process due to credit complications and they helped me every step of the way. Ed made closing fun and lighthearted while also making sure I understood what Inwas signing.
Ed and Ashley were a pleasure to work with during my closing. They are very quick to respond to any questions and made the process seem like a breeze. Ed's attention to detail is impeccable. I highly recommend Ed and his team to anyone who is looking for a lawyer that is responsive, professional and knowledgeable.
I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer to represent me. After I was unprofessionally dropped by my previous lawyer. I found Edward Witas from a recommendation of an acquaintance. The difference between Edward Witas and my previous lawyer is night and day. From the moment he took on the case, to the end, I was completely informed and wasn’t left in the dark. Edward and his firm is an epitome of consummate professional. Knowledgeable, efficient and caring. I highly recommend his firm to those in need of professional representation. 10 out of 10.
Ed and Ashley were amazing to work with on the sale of our home! Always on top of everything we needed to do and provide to ensure our home was sold without complications. I would highly recommend them for any of your real estate needs!
Ed and his team were great from start to finish. Anytime I had a question or concern, they were quick to address it. They made the whole process of buying a home a little less stressful, not to mention if there was any lawyer that can have a side gig as a comedian, it would be Ed. I was told by many that closing on a home is a long, dreadful time signing stacks and stacks of papers, but Ed made the closing process go by with ease. Definitely a great experience for a first time home buyer. I highly recommend!
Ed and Ashley are a team that values my time and empathizes with my situation. Their processes and follow up kept us on path - giving me the service I trust , and the persistence necessary to complete my transaction in a timely and thorough manner. I have referred them to numerous business associates and friends, and believe they will add value to each connection I make. I highly recommend Edward J. Witas & Associates, and moving forward will use them for my legal opportunities.
Ed was such a pleasure to work with. He was so thorough and explained everything so clearly. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks Ed!

Ed was amazing to work with. He was easy to get in contact with and kept constant communication throughout the entire process of selling one home and purchasing another. He was a pleasure to spend time with and made everything fun. His secretary was also wonderful. He was very thorough with his work and we felt very confident with him as our lawyer. We would definitely use him again and recommend him to everyone we know.
Precise attention to detail. Handeled all issues that arose in a timely manner.

Ed was a pleasure to work with and made my first-time home buying experience seamless. While there was a lot of paperwork to run through and sign at closing, Ed explained everything succinctly and provided me with a clear understanding. I will certainly look to Ed for any future real-estate legal needs. Thank you, Ed!
I considered four attorneys before I decided on Edward J. Witas. I am very pleased that I made the right decision. I first contacted Ed from the contact form on his website. He immediately responded to my request and we set up an appointment. I needed to update my very outdated Trust. Ed explained the benefits of having a Trust versus a Will. He did not rush through our meeting and his explanations were easy to understand. The final Trust was professionally executed and completed in a timely manner. Ed is an experienced and knowledgeable attorney. He is easy to talk to, has a good sense of humor and makes you feel welcome in his office. He listens well and suggests the best solution to solve the problem. I am grateful that I found such a personable, very professional, well organized and highly qualified attorney. I would recommend Ed to anyone who needs to get their business taken care of by a non-threatening and non-overpriced attorney.
I have worked with Ed in several real estate transactions and have been impressed by his overall competence, patience with clients of all ages and backgrounds, and professionalism. Ed answers legal questions for clients thoroughly and ensures understanding. I will continue to recommend Edward J. Witas & Associates to friends, family, and business clients.
Buying a home can be a nervous process. Edward combines professionalism with an easy going personality that puts my clients at ease. When they get the key to their new home, they feel good about the entire experience!!
I have worked with Edward on many different occasions and have been very impressed with not only his work ethic but his attention to detail. I would highly recommend him for any legal matter you might have!
