Richard Edwards - Calgary's Dedicated Injury Lawyer

And get the legal representation you deserve

Richard is a born and raised Calgarian, with strong roots and ties to his community.  Following a family tradition of practicing law and medicine, Richard found himself interested in the complex and detailed field of Personal Injury Law.  Since 1992, Richard has focused his practice on serious personal injury claims and wrongful death cases.

Richard brings tremendous experience with negotiating, trial work, and above all, successful settlements for his injured clients.  Richard has experience at all levels of Court in Alberta, including the Court of Appeal, Court of Queen’s Bench and the Provincial Court.  In addition, he has been involved with leave applications to the Supreme Court of Canada, Canada Pension Plan and WCB Appeals, and has conducted over 300 judicial judicial and private mediations.

With over 25 years of personal injury practice, Richard has been consistently listed in the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory as a Leading Practitioner in Alberta in the area of Personal Injury, as voted by fellow lawyers.  He can be counted on to deliver results.

Richard has always demonstrated compassion and caring for his clients, but in 2013, Richard experienced a life changing illness that gave him first-hand knowledge of what it means to be sick, scared, and concerned for the future.  He was hospitalized for two months with the potentially fatal Flesh Eating disease.  He lost a large part of his thigh which resulted in major skin grafting to the back of his leg.  With dedication and perserverence, Richard eventually regained full use of his leg and brought himself back to health.  Doctors were amazed with his recovery and attributed his success to his positive attitude and hard work.  

Richard now runs races, plays hockey, and never takes for granted the gift of health.  He fights for his clients like he fought for his own life and health.
