Reese is professional, caring, attentive and stands out amongst the rest
Reese really helps to make the arduous Worker's Comp. system a much more manageable process to deal with. He stands out amongst lawyers as one that cares and fights for you and your interests, rather than feeling like you're run through a machine and sent on your way. I always felt that my interests were on the forefront of all things done, as if he were working for family. He's very thorough and was responsive to questions that I had along the way from specifics to my case, the general process or what to expect along the way. There wasn't a thing that happened that he didn't predict or expect pertaining to my case, which was very reassuring to me and my family. This intangible really helped keep us calm along the way. In the end, he got me a bigger settlement than what was expected. He really helped turn a bleak situation into one of hope. I highly recommend Reese and would request him if at all possible.

He made workman's comp easy to understand.
Reese made sure that I understood all the particulars of my case, the pros and cons of different strategies, best practices for this type of case, and the long term effects of each option available. I felt like Reese really did have my best interests at heart and he listened to what was most important to me for my future. I was very satisfied with both the monetary settlement and the terms for future care in the settlement. Reese is knowledgeable, fair, and personable. He was easy to talk to and made me feel like my case was important. Workman's comp can be a complicated and tricky type of case but Reese made it understandable. I would highly recommend Reese to other people in my or similar situations.

Best lawyer ive ever had
I hired Mr Stidham due to he was recommended to me by my father whom Mr Stidham also represented and has done amazing job for as well. From day one I felt he had my best interest not just as a client but as a person. He truly did go out of his way to help me in more ways then one to ensure I was sucessful in what i was fighting. He kept me up to date with every step I needed to take to win my case. I can never thank him more for what he has helped me achieve and will recommend him to anyone one whom needs the best lawyer in charleston. I owe a lot to Mr Stidham and cant express my thank you enough.
