I have been in the real estate business for almost 50 years selling land in three states, during that time I have worked with numerous attorneys, in the late 1990’s I met Ed Blake at a farm closing since that time I have worked with Ed on many property sales and closings and have found him to be one of the most knowledgeable attorneys of real estate I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Over the years dealing with land sales and estates I have found that deeds and other documents prepared several years ago were incorrectly prepared, Ed was my go to guy to have them corrected plus over the years he has handled several items for our business plus personal items for our family, if you want someone who will fight and get it done for you Ed is your man.

I’ve used Ed and his law firm for many years on a variety of different topics such as real estate, probate, wills, and estates issues. He has been helpful each time and I would recommend his legal service to anyone in the Belleville or Collinsville etc area.

Mr. Blake is the best attorney hands down! His firm and him handled a probate case for me when my mother passed away. He was able to find out through a deposition of how much money and assets my sister had hidden from my family and me. He was very aggressive, prompt in replying to me and achieved the best results for me! Very pleased!!!

Edward J Blake, Jr. prepared my husband and my estate planning documents. He guided us every step of the way to ensure our wishes were set out in the documents. He was very professional and patient with us. Our documents were prepared very expeditiously. His services were excellent. Will recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney’s services.
