A attorney you can trust.
After the sudden death of my husband, I could not think straight anymore. Try to fill out paperwork since my husband passed with a will. I asked my daughter for help, but she did not understand the paperwork that I needed to fill out. Then my daughter said remember Wesley Legg he is a lawyer in West Chester and I am friends with him on facebook, so I will reach out to him for help. She did Wesley met us as soon as he could and he advised us what to do and all the things he will deal with on my behalf. I was so relieved, he took care of everything and made life so much easier for me since I was still not thinking straight. He was wonderful and he was so easy to talk to. Thank you, Wesley, for everything you did for me. I really appreciate your help and taking over. No wonder you are a successful attorney, you are a compassionate, honest, sincere attorney and I will recommend you every chance I can. Thank you again for everything.

Spousal Support
My wife raised two daughters in Downingtown,PA. My wife and I bought a house in Michigan near where I grew up. After 7 months my wife decided to end the marriage. After a month her being gone i finally was able to talk to her. She asked me if would I file for divorce. That I did in the state of Michigan in the beginning of March. A process server, served my wife with the complaint at my daughter's in Coatesville,PA in March. My wife was living with my daughter. My wife went to Domestic Relations in Chester County and filed for Spousal support in the middle of April. I contacted Mr. Legg to represent me. After consultation, I hired him. He filed a preliminary objection to jurisdiction. Shortly there after my wife withdrew her motion. Thank you Wesley.

Diligent and Effective
Wesley Legg originally assisted the attorney I had hired to assist me through my divorce. When she retired it was a certainty that I would hire Wesley to see the divorce through to the end. He has done a great job following through and helping me with all the final matters. He is quick to respond and always diligent and professional in all he has done for my divorce case.

Great choice for Divorce and Child Custody
Wes Legg does a great job understanding your specific situation and is an excellent listener. His office is a stone's throw from the West Chester Courthouse which is very convenient. I always felt that he was genuinely concerned about my legal issues. His billing is always fair and just. I highly recommend Wes and will be using him for my continued custody issues.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
In searching for a divorce lawyer, I was nervous and didn't know what I didn't know to even ask about! I knew I wanted an attorney who could skillfully prepare my case and represent me zealously. I found exactly what I wanted in attorney Wesley Legg. Wes was able to communicate well. He listened to my concerns and expectations. He clearly and easily explained things to me regarding my case, and provided me with realistic expectations. He communicated effectively with the court and my spouse's attorney, which facilitated fruitful negotiation. Wes represented me well. He proved his skill, knowledge and experience in dealing with the complexities of my case in all aspects of my life- family, finances, retirement, career, etc. He protected my interests, while allowing me to continue my daily life as much as possible. Not only was Wes available to represent me at the key points in my case, he also had support available to respond to my questions in a timely manner. Wes was calm and focused with me, but also exhibited self-control with my spouse's attorney, even when frustrated. He represented my interests strongly, while maintaining composure when unanticipated events occurred. He always represented my interests, and was willing and able to adjust his strategy when needed. Wes was always quickly, if not immediately available to me when I had a question. He and staff always had support and resources available to prepare my case in a timely manner. Wes was always focused, composed, and professional. Like a friend, he was a rock in a difficult time. I highly recommend him.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
Wesley is a fantastic divorce attorney. He is knowledgeable, easy to talk to, answers my many questions patiently and in plain English, and worked well with my ex-husband's attorney who seemed to drag her feet during the process. I highly recommend him to anyone going through this difficult process. He made it a lot less stressful than I thought it would be.
