It all Started in Law School...

Assistant District Attorney Edmunds with the D.A.'s staff, circa 1980

When I first considered becoming a lawyer, my father strongly advised that I attend law school where I wanted to practice.  Having reached an age where I was starting once more to listen to my parents, I applied to the University of North Carolina School of Law in Chapel Hill and, after being accepted, matriculated as a member of the class of 1975.  The next three years were difficult.  Law school is not designed to be fun.  Nevertheless, during that time I was taught to think analytically.  No less important, time has proven that powerful bonds grew between those in that class and I count my classmates as valued friends and colleagues.
