I have worked with Mr. Wells and his team for quite some time to resolve my personal legal matter. I can't say anything but great things for these people. When I was feeling alone and helpless I found this team that helped me get a result that I never thought was possible. But more than the legal matters, Rob and his people treated me with respect. Rob told me time and time again "We are not the worst thing that we've done." These words stayed with me throughout the process and helped me get myself back together. Rob and his Private Investigator Mary genuinely cared about how I was doing and that I was o.k. Val, the office manager, was always happy to see or hear from me no matter how busy she was. I was truly lucky to work with these people during such a trying time. I would certainly recommend Mr. Wells and his team to assist anyone having legal problems. They will fight for you, not just as a client, but as a person.

As I interviewed a few lawyers to handle my sisuation, it was mr. Wells and his staff that got to know me on a personal level rather than what was said on the paper work. He was very kind and always answered my questions, when I had doubt he sat down with me and went over how we where going to approach my sisuation.
On the day of court, his approach and his determination to have the judge "see who I was" and his well written statement we got an acd. I can't thank him and his staff for everything they did. I have and will recommend him to everyone I know. If any one is looking for a lawyer I wouldn't look any further.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Robert Wells is an exceptional and highly skilled attorney. He is well respected in State and Federal Courts by judges, prosecutors and fellow attorneys in the community. Robert truly cares about his clients and excels in his advocacy on their behalf. I have personally worked with Robert and have learned a great deal in doing so. I do not hesitate to to recommend him as one of the best defense attorneys in Central New York.
