Mr. Spencer began his criminal defense practice in 2014 after working as a prosecutor for over three years. Mr. Spencer's first job was as an assistant district attorney for Potter County. During his time in Potter County Mr. Spencer worked as a grand jury prosecutor and as a felony trial lawyer. As a grand jury prosecutor Mr. Spencer would present cases to the grand jury to determine whether or not someone should be indicted for a felony offense. Then Mr. Spencer transitioned into a felony trial lawyer. During his time as a felony trial lawyer, Mr. Spencer tried a variety cases ranging from theft and drug possession to murder and aggravated assault.

Mr. Spencer decided to leave the office when he and his wife got engaged. Since she refused to move up to Amarillo, Mr. Spencer moved back to Plano, where he had graduated from Plano East Senior High School in 2001. After moving back to Plano, Mr. Spencer was hired by the Hunt County Attorney's Office, where he worked as a misdemeanor trial lawyer. Shortly after he began working there, Mr. Spencer realized he wanted to start a criminal defense practice and left the office a short time later.

As a criminal defense lawyer, Mr. Spencer is committed to zealously advocating for his clients. Mr. Spencer analyses each case he gets not just from the defense side, but also from the prosecution side. If you want an attorney who is going to be honest, hard working and diligent, then Mr. Spencer is your best choice. If you want an attorney who returns phone calls and text messages, then Mr. Spencer is your best choice. The next time you are arrested for an offense and you need someone in your corner to fight for you then you need to pick Mr. Spencer to defend your rights.

Mr. Wesley is very hard working and will reply you on time, also whenever you needed to be informed about something.! For being very new or dealing with the police & court scenarios for the first time, I was very nervous and confused about where to find a lawyer and whom to choose. Since I never had, nor any people that I know had any relatable experience.! So I decided to go to google and go with the reviews.. But the story just didn’t end right there.. I can be very illiterate about court matters and the type of laws, including the politics.. Since I was never interested or bothered about those topic I do not have any knowledge about it either except for the limited one that are needed while driving or working. He was very knowledgeable and informative about those fields and did explained to me about how can work on my case & which is gonna be the best option for me to go with based on my case. He is almost done with one very professionally and another one after he gets a response from the court. And at this moment I’m glad for choosing him! He is very responsible & doing great!

I needed an Attorney immediately and Mr Spencer was on it. In an hour he had my charges Dismissed, the paperwork in my hand and I was out of there. Mr Spencer made me feel cared for and he knew what I needed done, I had never been in this situation in my life. He was quick & efficient, I give him 5 stars and highly recommended him to help you with your Legal needs. Again Mr Spencer thank you again for being there for me when I needed someone to step up for me.

Best Criminal Defense Atty
I enlisted the services of Mr Spencer to defend a relative who was a recent transplant to TX. I am not from TX so I did some research and selected him on a wing and a prayer. Mr Spencer was always kind, respectful and responsive. He never failed to return a call or text message. I discussed possible outcomes and both times I used him he was able to achieve the best outcome. There's so many moving parts and personalities in a case you cant guarantee outcomes at all but you definitely improve your chances with Mr Spencer.

On time help
I contacted Wesley for help with my daughter's case in Texas as she is incarcerated in Oklahoma and was not able to make her court date. He explained things to me very well and said he would try to get things dropped and sure enough...He did. Thankful for his service.

A Job Well Done
What an awesome guy to have on your side. He did everything he said he was going to do, and much more. He was nice, friendly, empathetic, and most of all, thorough. He got two of my class B misdemeanors dropped and kept off my driving record. Thanks Wesley

Fast action lawyer
When I had no lawyer I was worried and thinking I was going to jail but when Wesley was assigned to my case and got a hold of me I felt a big relief off my shoulders and I knew everything was going to be OK because he went to work right away if you need a lawyer that’s going to help you out and listen to what you have to say he’s the one for you

Excellent Lawyer
My husband and I hired Wes after we were wrongly accused of animal cruelty. We went off of a recommendation from a friend and we were NOT disappointed. Wes was very honest and professional from the start. Throughout the entire process Wes made sure that we were throughly informed and was readily available when we had any questions or concerns. He kept in constant contact with us during every step of the case. He ended up getting our case dismissed and we could not be more satisfied with the end result. If you are looking for an excellent lawyer, look no further!
