  • Sidney Wallis Kilgore

    I have known Charles for several years and have had occasion to work opposite him on one or more litigation matters. I have found him to be intelligent, resourceful, and a competent litigator, particularly in the area of construction law. He works diligently to promote the interests of his client, but is always a gentleman in and out of the courtroom.
