Dr. Edwards has a deep understanding of computer technology and doesn't hesitate to dive into technical minutia in support the case. Dr. Edwards also has court room presence, testifies clearly, and effectively distills complex concepts to basics.
In a recent project, Dr. Edwards lead a source code review of approximately 100 million lines of code, mapped relevant components across hundreds of versions, and drafted a succinct report tying it all together. Dr. Edwards will be my first call for the next case.

Ben Maskell Fox Rothschild LLP

Dr. Medvidovic is brilliant, professional, and easy to work with. His work is well reasoned, he holds up well in deposition, and comes across as the learned scholar at trial. I highly recommend him and will retain him again when I have cases in his area of expertise.

Steve Moore Goodwin Procter LLP

Dr. Edwards provided excellent expert analysis for our client, a software development company, in a contract dispute before the Southern District of New York. Dr. Edwards' work greatly contributed to a successful result for our client.

Jennifer Greenblatt Goldman, Ismail, Tomaselli, Brennan & Baum LLP

Dr. George Edwards provided a comprehensive and thorough analysis of my client's software in preparation of trial. His expertise helped facilitate an amicable resolution in a hotly contested case.

Michelle Davoli Smith, Sovik, Kendrick & Sugnet, PC

I was impressed with Dr. Edwards’s ability to understand the technology and patents despite coming onto the case on short notice and on an extremely expedited trial schedule. He and his team provided thorough source code review in a very efficient manner. I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him again.

Patrick Lai Schiff Hardin LLP

Mr. Frankovitz is a top IT professional. I was impressed how quickly he came to understand the rather complicated situation my client was facing. His testimony at trial was clear and concise and, as indicated by the jury post-verdict, he connected with them very well. I would definitely use him again in my next case.
