Absolutely Amazing Law Firm
This was my first experience with the law firm of Long & Jean P.A. Although it start out in an unfortunate situation, Lyle and the whole team at this firm took me through the legal system with professionalism, ease, and the ability to get the job done the first time. I was thoroughly impressed with their expertise in settling my case. Lyle and his staff succeeded where other attorneys for years have failed to do. I would highly recommend him to anyone! Thank you again for your help. You for sure exceeded your impeccable reputation. When only the best is needed, look no further than Long & Jean P.A. !

Best Experience Ever
I was in a car accident, I was recommended to call the law firm of Lyle Long. Lyle came to my house, took all the information that was needed and took it from there. I basically did nothing more. His office is very efficient, answered all my questions when needed. Once my case was settled I was extremely happy with the results. I would highly recommend this law firm to anyone.

Best attorney available
I hired Lyle as my attorney and legal counsel from a friends recommendation. From my initial sit down and consultation with Lyle we reviewed my case and he explained all the different possibilities and outcomes that could occur. He is open, direct, and honest and will tell you exactly the circumstances at hand. We stayed in constant contact throughout my case and he answered all of my answers clearly and concisely. I felt confident and comfortable the entire time he was handling my case. He took his time giving me the individual care I was looking for and I am extremely grateful for all his help and advice. We left the courtroom with the best possible outcome and I couldn't be happier. I encourage anyone needing a criminal defense lawyer to reach out and retain Lyle.

Results are what count and this man delivers
What was thought to be a small fender bender in a parking lot, surely turned out to be anything but. Especially the day after when I physically experienced the repercussions of the accident. I decided to look for an attorney on Avvo to protect my rights and was very impressed with what I read about Mr. Lyle Long and decided after a consultation to retain him for representation. Well I am glad I did. Words can not express the extra mile and diligence this man invested in my case, as small as it was. The professionalism and sincerity to help his clients, is second to none. Every time I needed to speak with Mr. Long, he was always accessible and returned my calls personally in a timely manner. When I was in jeopardy of being held responsible for this minor accident, he fought for me as if millions were at stake. Ultimately, we prevailed and I know I could not have done this without the fortitude and perseverance of this man. Sometimes lawyers get a bad rap but believe me, this man is the exception to rule. I felt all along from the moment I hired him, I was being represented by a family member. I would have no hesitation to hire again for any life situation that may arise in the future and I strongly suggest that if you ever are in need of the highest level of legal representation, you do yourself a favor and speak to this man. It will be a consultation and conversation you will never regret!

Best Lawyer in Town
I am so glad i attained Mr. Long in my time of need. On May 5, 2017 i was heading home from work as i usually do, using the same road i use everyday. While coming to a cross section a drunk driver decided to cut right in front of me causing an accident. The driver then drove away; however, was later found thanks to a witness. While sitting in the road i called Mr. Long, his information was given to me by a friend previously. Mr. Long calmed me down and instructed me how i should proceed as i have never been in this situation before. I called the police, and waited almost two hours for them to arrive. Meanwhile Mr. Long stayed on the phone with me the whole time. As i was out of a vehicle for several months, and had to see a doctor, Mr. Long was there whenever i needed him. Mr. Long was always available, and when he wasnt i always received a call back soon after. Mr. Long was with me through this entire unfortunate event. I hope something like this to never happen again; however, if it does Wilkie & Long P.A. will be the first call i make. Thanks for everything Mr. Long, i will be recommending your services to any of my friends who go through any such event and require assistance.

Car Accident
Lyle and his team are great. I called in from a recommendation and at the time my car was towed away after the crash and Lyle and his team offered to pick me up. They explained the process to me of helping me get representation for my case because I was hit after a truck driver changed lanes across intersections. They help me get the medical attention I needed and I was reimbursed for all my troubles.

Amazing to work with
Lyle helped us when we got injured in an accident, he is an amazing, charismatic lawyer. He will do anything he has to in order to make sure that your voice is heard and that your case is settled. His team truly helped us from beginning to end and made the experience of dealing with a lawyer a unforgettable and very smooth. The transition meeting with the doctors and making sure we got set up with our car being fixed was a great experience too. We were also informed always as to what was next in the process. Thanks to Lyle and his staff our case was heard and we won!!

great attorney
I had been involved in a car accident where an old lady stopped in front of me. Lyle was very kind and worked hard to get the settlement I needed for my medical costs. My case was not the easiest and he did a great job. Best attorney I have ever had! Pretty straight forward, no time wasting. Not scummy, pleasant to work with.

I can't believe how efficient he was. Mr. Long was able to resolve my case better than I initially hoped for. I felt helpless until I hired him, then I knew everything was going to be ok. If you need a lawyer, he's your guy!

Criminal Case (Stellar Attorney)
Mr. Long is the best I could have possibly asked for in a attorney. Not only is attentive/non-judgemental but super understanding. Being a first time offender I could not have asked for a better attorney to address my legal needs. He made the process understandable for someone not acquainted with everything. He gave advice and told me what I needed to hear to make those tough decisions that ultimately lead to best outcome. Very friendly and personable to me even under a gloomy predicament. For someone who is licensed the short amount of time he is, he for sure is the best you could ask for in a attorney and is extremely knowledgable in what he specializes in. I have absolutely no regret in hiring him and am beyond grateful for him not only as an attorney but as a person. I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal help!

Criminal defense
I retained Lyle for a criminal case I had. He was able to get me into court within a weeks time and had my case dismissed. It helped that he played football & long time friends with my prosecutor. He made me feel like my case was important to him, as it was to me.

Would highly recommend Lyle to handle your case. He was always available when needed to ask questions and spent the time to explain everything very thoroughly to me if I did not understand. Also, the staff at the office were helpful, pleasant and made sure I received a call back from Lyle ASAP if he wasn't in the office at the time.
