When I first began to practice law, Ed Doskey took the time to teach me some of what he knows. In my years of experience in the legal field, I have never met anyone more knowledgeable nor anyone with as much compassion for his clients. It would take an entire lifetime to learn everything that this person has to teach. A zealous advocate, a scholar, and a talented New Orleans musician. By hiring Ed Doskey, you will be hiring the best person to represent and protect your interests.

Jill S.

We were fighting with disability for months and kept being told there was no reason not to return to work despite not being released to go back to work by 3 medical doctors. Mr. Doskey wrote a letter and had the first check plus back pay within a week!
