Car accident
I got rear ended in 2015 and almost lost my unborn child due to this accident and William Sykes and Christian Augustin have been fighting to get my voice heard. Myself and my family appreciate EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE! Thank you

Will sykes has been the most attentive and hard working lawyer for my case.
He fought very hard for the best possible settlement. Always kept in touch, through staff as to what i needed or what they could do to make me feel better. He listened when I wasn't feeling great. I appreciate all the hard work. Thank you,

Highly Recommend
I highly recommend William Sykes to represent anybody for any case. I did not feel judged or uncomfortable at anytime being in his office, or next to me in court. He was very upfront with me about everything, and always followed through with better results! His assistant Brandy is very knowledgeable as well, and always keeps you posted. I am very pleased to have had an honest lawyer that I can trust, and worked with my financial situation.

Completely painless process, best possible results.
I've retained Will Sykes twice, once for a DUI case and once when I was injured in a five-car pileup. In both cases, Will was on top of everything, all the time, knew exactly what to do to get the best possible outcome in both cases. His rates are incredibly reasonable, his office staff is great and he's got a great "bedside manner," or whatever the equivalent is for a lawyer. I hope I never have to use Will's services again but if I do, it's comforting to know I have someone like him in my corner.
