Great experience!
Great experience from start to finish. Alex Weatherby and his team went over and above while working on my case. I was presented with different options and together we decided the best course of action. His communication and follow up went above and beyond. Highly recommended this firm!

Excellent Injury Attorney
Pitts and Alex are fantastic attorneys. They assisted me in a medical malpractice case resulting from an injury that changed my life. Dealing with a serious injury is not easy, and Pitts and Alex guided me through the process and fought hard to ensure I got the compensation I deserved. As a result, we settled my case for the maximum recovery available. I am forever grateful.

Alex Weatherby is a consummate professional and an asset to his profession!
Alex helped our company by educating our employees regarding contracts and how best to understand the meaning of the language contained within them. This was invaluable information for our managers and helped us to better navigate the complicated road of business contracts. Alex was prepared, professional, courteous and knowledgeable. He broke the information down in a way that made it easy for laymen to understand. Alex has an ease and confidence about him that makes him a pleasure to work with. He is a consummate professional and I highly recommend him.
