Cardi & Edgar LLP is a boutique law firm that focuses on matrimonial and family law, criminal defense and civil litigation with an emphasis upon commercial and employment disputes.
The firm was founded in 2013 by Dawn M. Cardi and Chad L. Edgar. The firm was formed after a successful association of its founders for over seven years under the predecessor firm Dawn M. Cardi & Associates, which was founded in 1992 by Ms. Cardi. Cardi & Edgar continues the tradition of providing sophisticated legal counsel using an informed, strategic and holistic approach designed to reach the best resolution possible for corporate and individual clients.
The Firm provides a full range of legal services to individuals, families and businesses in New York City and surrounding areas.
Taken together, the Firm’s principals have nearly 50 years of experience in the practice of law. Ms. Cardi has considerable experience as a matrimonial and family lawyer, state and federal criminal defense attorney, and civil litigator. Given the range of her background, Ms. Cardi provides clients with a unique combination of negotiation and litigation experience. Mr. Edgar’s experience as a general commercial litigator at a large firm and then at boutique firms ensures that his clients receive sophisticated counsel, which is then tailored to individual needs and circumstances. Such tailoring is especially important for Mr. Edgar’s clients who tend to be employees or smaller employers either prosecuting or defending against employment discrimination and wage and hour claims.
Cardi & Edgar LLP has established itself as an authority in matrimonial law, criminal defense and civil litigation, with an impeccable reputation for successfully negotiating, litigating and settling hundreds of cases against law firms of all sizes. The Firm’s client-focused practice is devoted to providing the highest levels of professionalism, customer service, and responsiveness to clients across a broad array of commercial and professional fields.
