Press and Media Coverage
S. J. Edney is a small firm, through choice. We believe that this enables us to provide our clients with the individual attention they deserve. Despite being a small firm, we have had a number of high-profile cases, which have featured in the local, national and international press.
See the press and media coverage for some of our high-profile cases:
