Case dismissed
Back in August of 2021 I was wrongfully accused of a crime. A crime in which the maximum penalty was 30 years in prison. I took Ken on as my attorney since he had helped me with my dwi case a year prior. Not knowing what to expect Ken always believed me and never steered me in the wrong direction. He has a straight shooter mentality. Which is what I believe an attorney should be. Someone who doesn't sugar coat anything and tells you like it is. After 15 months of working on my case and a 2 day trial, I was found not guilty. I easily could have been wrongfully convicted but Ken stuck to the facts of the case and because of that I am a free man able to move on with my family from that very long nightmare.

Exceptional Lawyer!
Ken helped us through a very challenging time and did an outstanding job reducing the charge and fine. Ken was knowledgeable about the juvenile court system, and helped my family put this situation behind us. Ken was upfront about the process and the fee's, and did exactly what he said he could do. I would highly recommend Ken as a lawyer.

Exceptional performance
Mr. Wilson resolved my case in a timely manner. Most importantly he kept me in the loop during each step as my case progressed. He answered any questions I had promptly. I'm hopeful I will not need a lawyer in the future, but happy to know where to go if I need one.

Ken Wilson - a great choice
I had a legal entanglement and engaged Ken to help me - best decision I could have made. Ken is great at being responsive and communicating with clients. Always quick to answer my questions and provide excellent counsel. He was key in safely and quickly navigating me through my issue. I would hire Ken again without hesitation.

Great overall lawyer
He seemed to, from the start, have my best interests in mind. He also was easy to get a hold of to discuss my case matters and plainly talk about what the next steps were to be in my case. He also seems to stand by what is right.

Disorderly conduct
I got a good reference of Ken and contacted him. As soon as we sat down and talked about my case he was very crystal clear what could go right and what could go wrong. He kept me informed of everything updated in my case. Helped me close my case and leave it as a ticket only.

Review for Kenneth on.
Ken did an excellent job as my attorney. From the initial meeting through my court appearance he always kept me informed of what was going on and my options. This was my second DWI in 17 years and there was a real possibility that I could be sentenced some jail time. Ken worked with the Judge and prosecutor and closed my case without any jail time which was a big relief. Thanks for all your help Ken!

Amazing Attorney
We hired Ken for the first time 4 years ago and he has become the attorney we refer anyone to who is facing a criminal charge. His rates are reasonable, he's flexible, his communication is unmatched, and his experience working on the prosecution side of court is a huge asset of his.

I contacted Ken through a friend who referred me. He was willing to take on my case and told me everything I needed to do and the prices. There was no hidden fees and he answered my calls and emails very quickly.
