Great Lawyer in a Small Town
Mr. Keng was a great lawyer. He kept me informed about my case, and was there with advice throughout. I have had bad experiences before, but Mr. Keng was always honest and truthful about my options and I never felt like he was trying to fleece me. Highly Recommend him for any legal issue you might have.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer's work. Wes and I went to law school together and he was one of the brightest in our class. All of us were amazed at him being in law school as he was the youngest in the class, at least two years younger than most, and this was related to him finishing undergraduate work at an earlier age. Enough of that... if you are looking for a lawyer in the Giddings, Texas area, you definitely should call Wes."
