About Michael Edwards
Also known as Michael A. Edwards, Mike Edwards
Michael Edward’s greatest ambition isn’t just to be a great lawyer, but to be a better lawyer. Many lawyers are there for the money, but Michael is on a mission to prove what a lawyer can and should be.
When people are facing a divorce, it’s not enough to have someone who knows the law. It’s crucial to have someone on your side that genuinely cares about you and your circumstances.
Michael is experienced in all aspects of family law including divorce, spousal support, child support, child custody, property division, and more. Additionally, he helps those pursuing a collaborative divorce or mediation.
Before starting at Sterling Law Offices, S.C. in Milwaukee, Michael worked at Zacherl, O’Malley & Endejan, S.C. gaining valuable experience working both family law and civil cases.
As Michael’s clients know, his passion is to make a positive impact on everyone who walks into his office.
An avid researcher and learner, he is constantly learning and honing his skills to better serve families across Wisconsin. In the courtroom, he fiercely defends his clients to get the best possible results.
Growing up, Michael’s mother battled many medical ailments while still fighting to make a difference in his life. This attitude of selfless hard work has infused every aspect of his career and is a large part of Michael’s success.
He is a caring lawyer who makes every client a priority, building winning cases around their genuine concerns and long-term goals.
His exceptional service, compassionate style, and positive results earned him the 2018 Avvo Client’s Choice Award.
However, Michael didn’t always know that family law was his calling. After earning his bachelor's degree from Drake University, he moved on to Marquette University Law School.
During his time in law school, Michael did over 400 hours of pro-bono community service work, which got him inducted into the Pro Bono Honor Society. It was during this time volunteering at the Milwaukee Justice Center that he discovered a passion and a talent for family law work.
Born in Milwaukee, Michael was raised in Thiensville. Now, back in the city of his birth, he finds that the city only gets better as he gets older. While Michael’s favorite sports team is the Milwaukee Bucks, he is an avid fan of all things sports in Wisconsin. If he’s not at a game or a brewery tour, he’s probably attending local festivals.

"I recently became a client of SterlingLawyers.com when I moved along with my attorney from a previous practice. My standard of care has been maintained. I'm still a little new to the "fixed fee" type of billing, but from the beginning I don't have the fear of getting billed in 15-20 minute increments for sending an email or calling for an update!"
