I began my legal career in 1992, as an insurance defense litigator. After three years of defending individuals and companies in lawsuits involving everything from a vehicle accident with exploding fuel tankers to toxic exposure in the construction of nuclear power plants, I switched gears to work with the largest bankruptcy law firm in San Antonio. During this period, I became one of the youngest board certified attorneys in consumer bankruptcy.
I moved to Abilene in 1999, when he was hired to operate and manage the local office of Monte J. White & Associates. Subsequently, I opened my own firm, the Law Offices of Weir & Willhelm, P.C., with the counsel of Woody Weir to expand my practice and represent my clients, who had come to appreciate and trust me, with other legal issues.
For the past fifteen years, I have represented numerous clients in various legal matters from civil, criminal, disability, probate and other civil matters to bankruptcy and debt reorganization.
Presently, I own and operate the Willhelm Law Firm, and I am licensed in state and federal courts as well as the US Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
