Howdy. I’m Ed. I’m a Nashville criminal defense lawyer and I’ve been practicing in Nashville since 2012. To date I’ve handled over 2,000 Nashville criminal cases.  After five years of practice I launched Courtroom Coach – a first of its kind online resource to help criminal defense lawyers better represent clients.  Later that year I began working part-time as one of Nashville’s Judicial Commissioners (Night Court Judge) where I have sat on the bench for over 1,000 criminal cases.
