Knowledgeable and Always Reachable
I had attorney Weldon represent me in an automobile accident. He spoke in plain terms to let me understand what would and could happen. He was always in touch with me and updated me on the status. He promptly returned my phone calls or emails with questions that I had. Overall, he and his staff did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend him
