Highly recommended
If I could give Mr. Wes Hilton 10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️'s, I would! From the beginning, he has always been knowledgeable, kind, professional, trustworthy and up-front. I trusted him with a big case and he did NOT disappoint, he got it dismissed!! He told me what I should expect both pros and cons and in the end he over delivered on all of it. He is a no-non-sense , straight shooter. Without a doubt he will get the job done. You could not ask for a better legal team. The office staff is prompt and supportive. I can't thank you enough for everything you have done and will continue to do for my family and I!! Highly recommended.

Excellent attorney
Wes has always been a phone call away whenever I needed him. He is quick to return calls, always willing to listen, and offers excellent options for each situation. I have been so impressed with his service that I have referred him to family and friends for legal assistance. He recently helped a friend with a personal injury case who had been brushed off by another attorney. My friend called to thank me and was more than pleased with his settlement Wes got for him.

wes is the best.
Wes was very thorough. He completed the case for me in a matter of months. I couldn't have been more satisfied with the outcome. I would highly recomend Wes for any of your legal needs.

This lawyer just lies... he is not aggressive. And he lies to his clients. Which is illegal and he deserves to be barred.

Not someone you'd want
He didn't fight or help like we expected. I won't recommend him or hire him again
Response from Wesley Hilton February 29, 2020
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I understand you don’t feel like this is result you wanted. You were not my client in this case and my client got the result that was the absolute best for him and his son. Thank you for your opinion.
