Great Experience!
I was involved in a horrible accident and felt like I was in a situation where I was going to get taken advantage of! I'm 65 and was hit from the side, causing a lot of damage to the side of my car and also to my back. I had three disks dislocated. I was in a lot of pain. Welmaker helped me with all these issues. He helped me get reimbursed for my doctors bills and for my car damages. I could not have asked for a better experience. He was so nice to me and made me feel better in a time of uncertainty! I am so glad I went to him for help and I would recommend him to anyone who needs help during a difficult time. Lulu

More than qualified
The team at Welmaker law firm kept me informed throughout my case . they made sure my medical needs were met as well as getting financially compensated. I have had another firm represent me before but failed in comparison as to the level of sevice I received from Mr. Welmaker and the staff at Welmaker Law Firm

I got well with Welmaker
Mr. Welmaker represented me in a slip and fall case. He and his staff were very professional and courteous. He was the only attorney who would take my case after talking with several others. We were very pleased with the settlement and would definitely recommend him for anyone needing representation.

I am a Happy Camper with Welmaker Law

Great Lawyer
I was involved in a rear end collision and Mr. Welmaker helped me get the medical care I needed for my personal injury. His staff was always available to me whenever I had any questions and I received a nice check from the insurance once everything was resolved. I am very happy with my experience and would recommend Mr. Welmaker.
