For over a third of a century, Clifford Edwards, a Montana attorney, has dedicated his law practice, throughout Montana and based in Billings, to representing individual Montanans and their small businesses. Clifford has championed the cause of Montanans injured through the fault of others; sued the insurance companies that have denied benefits that Montanans have coming; sued the toxic polluters that have fouled Montanans property, forcing them as toxic polluters to pay to clean-up the mess they left; and sued the manufacturers of defective products that have injured, maimed and killed Montanans; sued the Burlington Northern Santa Fe for damages they have inflicted on Montanans in personal injury as well as toxic pollution through their properties.

Clifford has had considerable success in the courtroom, and in the negotiation room, and has been able to significantly help many Montanans all over the state, to remedy wrongs that have been done to them.

Clifford's efforts on behalf of his clients have received national attention. In 1994, he was invited into the most prestigious organization of trial lawyers that exists in America the International Academy of Trial Lawyers. That association limits its membership to just 500 lawyers throughout the entire United States. That is less than 1/10 of 1% of all of the lawyers practicing in America. The meetings that the Academy holds, around the country, have provided Clifford a network of trial lawyers of great note that has significantly broadened his ability to select expert witnesses, as well as share up to date litigation and trial techniques on the cutting edge in the United States.

In 2002 he was inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers, which is limited to 1% of attorneys throughout America, and similar benefits with his fellow college members exists like that of the International Academy.

Clifford was named the Montana Trial Lawyers of the year in 1996. He has been listed in the Best Lawyers in America (which is a selection based on the vote of his peers in the trial bar) since 1987.

He was selected as a delegate to a People to People-Professional Trial Lawyers Delegation to China in the fall of 2007. Only 45 members of the American Association of Justice were picked to represent the top trial lawyers in America in interacting with top lawyers throughout China.

In 2007, the American Trial Lawyers Association selected the top 100 trial lawyers in America and Clifford was included in that. He has also been listed in the Top 7 Mountain States Super Lawyers, and Clifford has obtained two of the four highest jury verdicts ever in Montana's history of behalf of Montanans against major U. S. Corporations.

His most recent verdict in that category was in February of 2007.

Clifford is a third generation Montanan. Grandfather Edwards came to the great Judith Basin of central Montana in the early 1890's. His grandfather Cunningham came shortly after the turn of the century to that same area. Clifford's roots run deep in agriculture and Edwards's cattle have grazed the Judith Basin for over 100 years now. The Edwards' family business interests include banking and aviation, but Clifford has a particular passion, which he has exercised for the last third of a century, of being Montana born and educated trial lawyer representing individual Montanans and their small businesses.

Clifford grew up in the small central Montana town of Denton, graduated from high school there, and graduated from Carroll College in Helena, Montana and thereafter the University Of Montana School Of Law in Missoula.

Personal Interests

Clifford's outside interests are raising Black Angus cattle and riding good Quarter Horses. He came to peace with the game of golf by giving it up twenty-five years ago. Clifford loves the outdoors, and spends time snow skiing and as much time as possible at Swan Lake where he enjoys his river boat and restored 1957 Criss Craft Mahogany.

Clifford's life centers on his family. His first wife, Denise, put him through law school while they were in their early twenties, as she taught school. Their proudest accomplishments were always their two sons, Christopher and John. Denise died in 1999 of cancer. Their sons are both now Montana educated lawyers and members of the Edwards Law Firm.

Unexpectedly, in 2006, Clifford was introduced to his wife (since January 08) Susan. He was introduced to Susan in Glasgow, by a long time close personal friend. Clifford and Susan have found a real niche together, and he is extremely proud of her past professional accomplishments, and has welcomed her three children into his own family. Clifford and Susan love to travel and have enjoyed many of the major U.S. cities, Puerto Rico, a trip to China with the American Association of Justice People to People program, and to India with the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, Tanzania, Africa with People to People International (Mr. Edwards was one of 40 individuals invited on this trip); and in the summer of 2010 they will be travelling with the IATL delegation to Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Clifford intends to actively practice law for many years to come, and is proud of the team of Montana attorneys, paralegals and assistants that work together at Edwards Law Firm. Their practice is robust and they handle cases not only in the Billings area, but also all over the great state of Montana.

Accomplishments

  • 2007 Obtained two of the four highest jury verdicts in Montana's history for Montanans against Major US Corporations
  • 2009 Nominated to the Litigation Counsel of America Trial Lawyer Honorary Society composed of less than one-half of one percent of American Lawyers.

SAMPLE LEGAL CASES

Do You Need An Irvine Car Accident Lawyer?
After a car accident, you have legal rights which can be immediately placed in danger. Insurance companies have an array of tactics that are designed to reduce the amount of money you get. This can start as soon as the accident occurs - even statements you make on the scene of the accident can be used against you later.
What Causes Commercial Trucks to Jackknife?
Large, heavy commercial trucks are some of the most dangerous vehicles on the road. The added weight of their cargo creates more momentum, which in turn causes more force during a collision. This leads to more serious injuries for the victims of a truck crash.
The Three Types of Distracted Driving
Distracted driving accidents have become a significant public health risk all across the United States. Especially here in California - where heavy traffic can lead to road rage and other types of distractions - road users are put in danger by distracted drivers.
