Disability Approved!
Excellent experience from beginning to end, a surprisingly pleasant process. Mr. Wickward is very knowledgeable and experienced in social security / disability law. My case was approved in a little over a year. Throughout the whole process I was always updated and kept informed of what to expect. Mr. Wickward and his secretary were always pleasant and professional.

Social Security case for SSI - Thomas Lilly 2013-2014
Mr. Wickward has been very informative in everything from start through currently awaiting the jjudge's decision after an adjudication review in June 2014. He has explained everything to me in layman's terms, easy to understand, and when there were any questions on my part, then he was so patient to explain the process, and specific questions, that I may encounter. He is very knowledgeable about disability, and social security laws. I have been totally pleased with his candor, and expertise.

Positive Experience with William J. Wickward Jr in Traffic Violation Situation
I contacted William J Wickward Jr after receiving a speeding ticket in Durham County. My court date was April 11th, and it was late March when I first contacted him (due to uncertainty about how to proceed with the matter). He was very responsive, kept me informed, and was able to have it reduced to improper equipment (which was better than what I'd expected). His fee was very reasonable, and I am extremely happy with my experience. I would definitely recommend him.

Highly Recommended!
Bill Wickward is an excellent attorney! He came recommended through another attorney who didn't practice in Durham. I got a speeding DWLR ticket and Bill was able to get it reduced without me getting any points! I recommend calling Bill Wickward first.

The Best
Mr. Wickward is very knowledgeable in SSDI proceedings. He prepared me for what to expect in my appeals hearing. He thoroughly answered all of my questions.

Review of Attorney Williiam Wickward Jr.
I used Attorney Wickward for Landlord/Tenant case. I was the Tenant and I was very pleased with the outcome of my court case. Attorney Wickward was called at the last minute (1 day before my court appearance). I faxed him my information and he agreed to represent me in court at the last minute. He helped to get my case dismissed and also gave me advice on what I needed to do as a follow up. I also called him about week after and asked him questions and he was willing to answer them.

Case dismissed!
Bill was prompt and knowledgeable with all detail involving my case. He went above and beyond to make sure that everything was settled. This was my first time dealing with the court system, but I felt that Bill did a good job of explaining the options available to me and gave his suggestions on the best course of action.
