Awesome and professional
Mr. Wharton has been my attorney for 10 years now and I have recommended him to so many people. I am very happy with my choice of attorney. People have told me oh you need a new attorney but I have stuck by him because he has never let me down. My son is in detention and he was able to get him out to attend a funeral with me and is working hard on getting him back home with his family.

He tells you the truth on the front end and will not promise anything he cannot deliver. Priced right and excellent representation!!!

Empathy, Kindness, Professionalism is what really drew me to The Wharton Law firm
November 2020 I had a slip and fall, I spoke to a family member, believing that this could have been preventable, he referred me to The Wharton Law Firm, I have never been in this situation before so I contacted the firm. All this happened during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic, I received a phone call advising that the attorney wanted to conduct a zoom consultation, during the consultation I advise him of what had taken place on that day, I was then advised that the firm would except my case, I was grateful. Not knowing what to expect, I went to all my doctor visits, obtain any evidence that I could, Andrew kept me up dated on every aspect of the case, if he emailed and stated they needed anything such as medical records, medical bills ect. I was able to obtain them. anytime they call, emailed the first thing they ask was how was I feeling. I woud receive some emails asking certain questions about that day, to clear up a few unanswered questions. As time went on I was still continuing treatment, I would advise them of every appointment I had, what day, who I was seeing, afterwards I would email Andrew advise him of my visit, what will happen next, I just kept him up to date on everything that was going on. Once we got to the near end I was advised of the starting offer, he advise me on each and every one through the end, he consulted with me about what to expect and how this negotiaton would take place, after mutipile offers and at that time which I agreed to settle. I have talked about this firm to my family and would highly recommend The wharton Law Firm, because I was completely satisfied. I am so grateful to The Wharton Law firm, and they were so concerning, polite, helpful, reliable, honest and most of all very professional, If I had to use a firm in the future it will be The Wharton Law Firm

This gentleman is a god send!
I was involved in a commercial motor vehicle accident in Memphis, I was driving a tractor trailer when a man traveling at a high rate of speed smashed into me and ended up under my trailer, he was deemed at fault but upon running my information the state police made me aware I had my license suspended out of my home state of Pennsylvania due to an expired registration citation I received but paid on Easter weekend so it didn’t process in time, my license was reinstated days after the crash however I had a warrant in Memphis I hired Mr.Wharton and he had my issues resolved for me within day he is committed to his clients and was prompt to make me aware of any changes me and my family are beyond grateful!

Great Lawyer. Professional and Charismatic.
Mr. Wharton was the ultimate professional in regards to my matter. Despite the unorthodox parameters of my situation he stayed persistent on my stance and guided me through the process as it was a long tenured case with several challenges along the way. Mr. Wharton was patient and available which allowed my support and myself to keep a positive mindset. Highly recommended.

Assault case in Bartlett
I was arrested for an assault that occurred in Bartlett, TN. I retained Mr Wharton and from the beginning he was knowledgeable, professional and prompt. During our initial meeting he explained to me the applicable statutes for my case and the possible defenses we can pursue. I especially liked how transparent he was throughout my case. He was open and honest about the possible outcome but more importantly, I felt like he had my back from the beginning through the entire process. Fortunately for me he was able to get a favorable outcome on my case by having it dismissed with me only paying court cost and taking a class. I am eternally grateful to Mr Wharton and his law firm. I would recommend him because he is a classy, reputable attorney with world class customer service!!!!

I hired Mr. Wharton to defend me concerning an accident. And he did just that! I was able to pay the court cost & walk away freely with NOTHING on my record. If I needed a lawyer in the city of Memphis again I would choose him without any question. HIRE Mr. Andre Wharton. You will not regret it!!!

Family Matters
I hired Andre Wharton in a legal matter regarding my son. He was extremely helpful in my time of need for legal advice on this issue. He helped guide me and consulted me on any and every direction the case could lead to. From the worst outcome to the best outcome. He truely cares about his clients issues and concerns. He will call you back and answer your questions and talk about your concerns the best he can and does not make you wait and worry. Mr. Wharton takes his job seriously and thus he always performs his job to the best of his ability to help his clients. Andre and his firm gave me and my family the best care they could provide and made us always feel welcomed and at ease about our situation. The best peace of mind I've had and my first choice if I ever have to go through another legal matter. I highly recommend Andre Wharton and his law firm for your legal matters.

Excellent Professional Lawyer and Law Firm
This was my very first time experiencing having to search and hire a lawyer for myself. I google and called several lawyers throughout Memphis. Mr. Andre Wharton was very professional and prompt to returning my calls and answering any and all questions I had over the phone. My entire experience with the Wharton Law Firm and Mr. Wharton was just amazing, accurate, quick and very very professional. I could write so many great things and my experiences with Mr. Wharton and the firm. Only lawyer I ever had and it was the best decision I could have made for myself!
