Everyone was so kind
I was in a car accident and had no idea how to navigate getting my bills paid and insurance payout. Ms Van Wey took my case with no money from me up front. Her assistant was so kind and walked me through all the steps, answered my myriad questions and took care of everything, especially the complex navigation of insurance company rules and deadlines for filing. I’m so very grateful and happy with the outcome of my case.

Personal injury
I just wanted to thank my lawyer Kay at Van Wey, Metzler & Williams, PLLC. for taking on my personal injury case. I honestly thought there was no hope for someone to take on my case to help me pay my chiropractor bills and x-rays bills. Keep in mind my case was over two years old and Kay took 4 months to get it completed. I wish this would have taken less time but there was a process and many delays This was a case that was not my fault and I had a running tire on the highway and hit the front on my vehicle. I had a good experience talking to Peggy and she is very pleasant with the process and very organized. I appreciate all your help Kay and your staff calling me back with a status through this process. You guys rock! Thank you,Gaby

I was involved in a Hit and Run Accident
Peggie is so great!!! I was involved in a hit and run accident from behind, I was out of work for about 80 hours. Peggie helped the police find the guy that hit me from behind, and got him to take responsibility. She helped with finding doctors for me that helped me rehabilitate and get me back to work. She always answered all my calls and questions I had for her. I wasn't sure if I would get any type of settlement due to my medical bills being high, but she got them to reduce the bills in half and I got a really good settlement. With the settlement I received, I am able to open my own business and I am truly grateful to her for that!!!!

Susan Allen and Peggy Blake are an amazing team. They are friendly and treat their clients with respect. I was at ease with our first meeting while they carefully explained my options. My phone calls and emails were always answered in a short time. I highly recommend the law firm of Van Wey, Presby and Williams. They are knowledgeable, professional, respectful and friendly.

Excellent, caring attorney that fights for her clients
I have been working with Kay Van Wey for about a year now. I see some of the behind-the-scenes things she does and everyone should know how passionate Kay is about helping her clients. She is smart, genuine, and really cares about every client she works with. You can hear it in her voice when she talks about a case.

Van Wey Law Handled My Accident Case
I was hit on a major interstate from behind and the person who hit me had an insurance company that did not want to compensate the damage done to me physically and to my car. Peggy Blake was amazing. She jumped right in and handled every aspect of the case with all parties involved, including physicians, auto repair shops and more. She followed through making sure I got the compensation I deserved. They were very attentive to my case which is something that is hard to find these days with busy attorneys like these. They will be my goto if, heaven forbid, I ever need support and help with personal injury in the future.

Personal Atty
We look at Kay, as, some one we can talk to, as, we can talk to a friend you haven't seen in a while! We love Kay! She has been, that friend, you need in your corner, when you need some one! Thank God she has been there for us! WE have been blessed to have had Kay in our lives for the past 25+ years. Kay has helped us on several occasions. First, my husband was rear-ended, we hired her then to help with medical bills. Second time, I was hit head on, in a coma for eight days, was in rehab for four months to learn to stand, hold a fork, to push a call light button. I was sent home in a wheelchair. In the next 5 years, I've had eighteen surgeries. Medical bills have been unreal! Kay Van Wey, did all she could, got all that was allowed, has been there anytime we have had questions or concerns. KAY Van Wey IS OUR ATTORNEY!

Best Lawyer I know Hands Down seriously
I first meet Kay in 1991 when she was introduced to me by a wonderful Attorney by the name of Paul Smith. When my husband passed away due to a car accident. Kay treated me and my two small children at the time they where 1 and 9 years old as if we was her family. Kay made sure I could provide for my children after the death of their dad they are both college graduates great adults now. I never felt like a client even to this very day June 22, 2016 I can call Kay about any legal matter and can rest assure if she can't represent with the case she has great colleagues that she will refer me to and I'm not worried. Kay is my go to person for life.. Thank you Kay Van Wey from the bottom of my heart!!! Linda and family
