Angie's review
I hired Willis to be my attorney four year ago I was dealing with a messy separation and a lot of charges and court dates ! I loved his dedication tmand sincerity in helping me .he went above and beyond making phone calls getting documents that were needed for my cases .and he truly fought for me and got me out of my big messes . He is always on time and has a smile on his face . After four long years of fighting in the court system for all kinds of different charges and being on probation this man has fought for my freedom when I didnt think there was any way out of my mess especially with being on probation. And getting new charges Willis got me through it .. my last court date was February 25th 2019 and it was all dismissed ..tha kk you so much Willis for your hard work and dedication!!!

Finally got my license back!!!
Mr. Brantley did an amazing job in resolving an outstanding matter for me which was hindering me from obtaining my drivers license. He worked diligently to ensure a favorable outcome for me and upheld outstanding communication until my case was resolved!

I'm Going with Willis
Willis Brantley put me at ease during an interesting situation. He worked his magic and flexed with law knowledge to assist in acknowledging and putting to rest a horrifying scam. I hope to never need his professional assistance ever again, but should I find myself in need, I'm going with Willis!

Thank you!!
My first year of college, I did something I completely regretted and another lawyer on Avvo recommended Mr.Brantley for my area. Mr. Brantley stayed in contact with me, answered any questioned I had, kept me up to date with my case and had one of the most reasonable prices. After completing 24hrs (easy) of community service & taking a simple assessment my case was dismissed completely. Basically within 2 months of my original court date my case was over. Thank you so much! Highly recommend.

Professional and Practical, Top Notch Attorney
Mr. Brantley is a very knowledgeable attorney, he knew from the start what he would be able to do with my case. He did for me what I did not believe would be possible, definitely worth your time and money!

Assistance in traffic court situations
I hired Willis based on some good experiences from another friend. I needed Willis to help me with an infraction while traveling home from the Carolina Coast earlier this summer and also for an infraction in Raleigh. I found Willis to be extremely professional in every way. All questions were asked in a very polite and sincere manner. I could not be happier with the outcomes of both situations. At all times I was kept informed of what was needed on a timely basis. Should the occasion ever occur the need for Willis's services I would not hesitate to contact him.

Great attorney
I hired Me. Brantley to help me resolve issues with my HOA. My HOA made me pay for exterior maintenance on my home which my HOA fee is supposed to cover. The HOA has performed the same work on other townhouse in my community. They treated me unequally to my neighbors. Mr. Brantley helped reach a settlement with my HOA and helped me get reimbursed for some of the expenses I incurred. Mr. Brantley responds to calls and emails promptly.

He is the best lawyer in the state
He makes sure that u are doing what you are suppose to do as far as making your situation better. Checking in, doing his part, and treating you with respect are some of the qualities that makes him the best at what he does. When I felt like I had no chance, he told me to relax, stay positive, and keep God first. that's why in my opinion he is the best in his state.

Very Professional Lawyer, Highly Recommend.
Mr. Brantley is a very professional individual that makes your problem into his. I had a speeding ticket that had to go to court and Mr. Brantley pleaded my ticket down to almost nothing, and ended the case months before I had to make an appearance. His rate is also very hard to beat. Not only is he easy to talk to, but he made it convenient for me to contact him by giving me his personal cell phone number. If I ever have to hire a lawyer again I know who to go to.

Very proactive attorney !
I was recently convicted of a DUI charge that Willis Brantley represented me on. Willis is very eager, knowledgable, thorough , but most of all was always available for my questions and concerns. Willis clearly laid out my options and set my mind at ease with his defense options. He is an attorney that will actually work on your case, not just get paid to show up at the courthouse.

Willis helped me with filing a motion against a complaint. He was able to get the document together in perfect order and his instructions made the process easy. I will definitely give him first shot at my legal questions and issues and trust his judgement on Whatever he recommends.

Willis was a great guy with the most informative answer when I asked him different types of questions. I would recommend Willis to anyone with my type of case. Always there at anytime, if any new questions or thoughts came about. He is also in contact and is there for you when you need him.

Endorse Willis
Child abuse Attorney | Jun 27
Relationship: Co-worker
"Willis has been working with my firm, and with me since Christmas of 2015 and has been a solid asset to the firm. He spends more than ample amounts of time on his case load, treats each case like its his own, and is always willing to try things out of his comfort zone. As his colleague, I pride myself on the attention and expertise I put into each of my cases because they are a reflection of my ability. I would never pass along a case that I felt was not 100% and nor would I refer a case or allow an attorney to sit in on my cases that I did not personally trust to do a good job. Willis has proven his ability on both of these fronts. I wholly endorse him for anyone in need of a Criminal or DSS attorney."
Criminal defense Attorney | May 05
Relationship: Friend
"Having known Willis for over 15 years, I can wholeheartedly endorse him as a solid lawyer and all-around great person. Willis doesn't shy away from hard work and he is fair to friends as I am doubtless he is to his clients. Willis has my thumbs-up support, and I don't give that out lightly."
