Excellent attorney with real people skills
I have hired Bill for three separate criminal cases. From the start he struck me as approachable and reassuring. I have watched him work and it is clear that he is well known and respected by other attorneys, prosecutors and judges within the legal community. He is very skilled both in the courtroom and behind the scenes putting together realistic proposals and agreements between all parties, always in the best interest of his client. Bill comes with all the upsides of a well versed, intelligent and respected attorney with none of the typical downsides. His fee rate was always reasonable and he explained what was happening with patience and clarity. Most of all, I never saw a hint of that "know it all arrogance" that I have seen in other top notch professionals. Like I said, all the upside of hiring the best with none of the drawbacks sometimes associated. Treat yourself and your situation right and get in touch with Bill. At least talk to him first. You will be glad you did. I know I was.

Mr. Weise Representation
I had excellent representation. Mr. Weise was patient, kind, encouraging, inspiring, and showed he really cared. I like to think he's not only my lawyer but my friend.

Just got done with court
William is an astounding attorney. Well worth the cost he comes at. He answers the phone every time and even calls you to give you piece of mind. He's a very well spoken individual and I cannot explain how thankful I am for his services. In more than certain any other attorney would have not of had his success with the judge and procescution and I surely would have faced jail time. With him I've avoided jail I could not be more impressed. Thanks so much Bill.

best DUI lawyer I have worked with
Bill comes at a price for a reason, not only does he have a proven track record, he is an attorney that will actually call you back when you really need him. I have had bill working on my case for over 5 months now and can say he is completely honest and does not offer false hope. he is up front in every expect and truly cares for his clients. his entire team have been there for me through out every acpect of my case and have not let me down.. there have been serval occasions when I called bill late at night or on the weekend and he answered the phone and was able to offer advice.. this man will fight for you and you can't go wrong with him
