Edwin Ferguson is a proud product of the Palm Beach County School System, having attended Lincoln Elementary School, Military Trail Elementary School, Bear Lakes Middle School, and Suncoast High School. While a student at Suncoast High School, Edwin attained his diploma from the International Baccalaureate program. After high school he attended the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), followed by his attendance at the University of Central Florida (UCF). While at UCF, Edwin attained his undergraduate degree in Business Administration.
Upon graduation from college, Edwin sought to enter the field of education as a teacher in the Palm Beach County School District. While employed in Palm Beach County as a teacher, Edwin had the privilege of teaching AP Chemistry at Suncoast High School, and Algebra I in the ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) program at Palm Beach Lakes High School. While teaching in our public schools, Edwin, whose mother, Abby, taught in the Palm Beach County School District for over 20 years prior to her untimely passing, and who has a number of family members who work or worked as educators throughout the state of Florida, developed a strong appreciation for the challenges our students face in and outside of the classroom. In fact, it was Edwin’s empathy for the daily struggles our students face that led him to turn his sights to law school as a means of gaining a greater level of education which then could be used here in Palm Beach County to help reshape the community.
Edwin’s tenure in law school was quite successful, having offered him the chance to gain a deeper understanding of the law, and the importance of advocating for those who cannot advocate for themselves. Mere months after graduating from the Barry University School of Law in 2005, Edwin founded The Ferguson Firm in Riviera Beach, Fl. Over the course of his career, Edwin has honed his advocacy skills by fighting for the rights of persons injured due to the negligent acts of others, and also by fighting to defend the rights of persons who have been accused of committing criminal acts. Presently, Edwin is a licensed attorney in Florida and Maryland, and limits his law practice primarily to the areas of personal injury and real estate.
When he is “off the clock”, Mr Ferguson spends his time with his lovely wife, Keli (local TV news anchor), and their toddler-aged son, Xavier, (with whom he enjoys watching “Harry the Bunny” and “Tog, Toot, and Tizzy Mouse”) and the newest addition to the family, Abby, who was born in March of this year. Edwin also enjoys reading, exercising, and rooting for his beloved Miami Dolphins and Miami Heat.
