Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • David Charles Bruffett

    I endorse Robert Wells because he is the epitome of what an attorney should strive to become. Highly competent, respected in the legal community and with an unmatched desire to genuinely help his client. Rob actually cares about his clients; an increasingly rare, admirable quality.

    I have sat through a number of continuing legal education classes taught by Mr. Wells. I learned a lot from Mr. Wells during these presentations and am impressed with his public speaking skills. Without hesitation, I endorse this attorney.
