Above and Beyond
I knew I was in good hands from the moment I met Conor. I was new to the legal process and Conor walked me through, step by step. I’m forever grateful for his compassion and professionalism and I would recommend him to anyone that is need of legal expertise.

Rodriguez Case.
In my opinion Conor did an excellent job with my arm and robbery case. He did very well on gathering all evidence to present at court. Conor also did very well on helping me understand and communicating everything that was going on with my case not to mention it was a pro bono but that didn't change the fact that he fought very hard for my freedom and to prove I was not guilty! I think Connor is an excellent attorney I would recommend him 100%!

Couldn't have asked for more
I hired Mr. Wilson in July of 2016 to represent my boyfriend who is incarcerated at Delco Prison. Since the day I spoke to him on the phone & explained what the charges were, and from the moment I went to his office to meet him & discuss matters he has been nothing short of great. Very personable, kind, interested, headstrong, and knowledgeable about everything throughout this whole process. He now (January 2017) just helped us beat my boyfriends 2 aggravated assault charges & will continue to represent Shane throughout his time spent in jail for any legal matters. He feels like a close friend, not just an attorney, & was always thorough with anything and everything we asked of him. I can't say a single bad thing about him, just a great stand up guy, but still very professional, that WILL help you or your loved ones !!!!!!
