I have dealt with Wilbur Owens as counsel on opposite sides of cases and in the mediation arena. He is always prepared, extremely knowledgeable about the law, and a client advocate. If I had a personal injury claim, I would ask him to represent me.

Disrespectful Blowhard
He didn't listen to a word I had to say to him during my 5 minute phone call with him. This guy does not care about justice for elderly and vulnerable victims of abuse. He wasted my time.
