In March of 2015, my young Son was facing felony weapons charges and our family was struggling to find high quality affordable help. After weeks of research, shopping around and frustrating calls with attorneys who made me feel unworthy of quality legal representation...as a result, I did just what you are most likely doing right now - more research and reading reviews. Our family was caught between a rock and a hard place - we needed help, but couldn't afford it. After hours of reading I ran across the reviews of Mr. Donte T. Wyatt. It was a Friday evening when I picked up the phone to call his office and I had every intention of leaving a voicemail. I was stunned to hear him answer, personally. Mr. Wyatt (without mention of money) asked me questions about my Son's case and briefly discussed possible "next steps", then offered to meet with my entire family on Sunday for a consult. After a 34minute phone conversation with Mr. Wyatt, I instantly knew - he was the man for the job. I won't draw this out with tales of every meeting, but I will say that money was a discussion we had only after I was confident I wanted him to represent on of my most valued assets, my youngest son. When the dollar amount was presented I did not hesitate to agree and was pleasantly surprised with the payment plan Mr Wyatt presented to help ensure cost wasn't a boundary keep my son from having the representation he deserves.
In conclusion, within a matter of a few months Mr. Wyatt guided our family with wise and knowledgeable counsel. Being victorious in the end with the best possible outcome we could've ever hoped for. We have one final court appearance in a few months, but everything is smooth sailing from here. I'm fortunate to have found Mr. Wyatt and I wouldn't change a thing. Short of an overflowing savings account for my Son's future collegiate endeavors, investing in the services of Mr. Wyatt is one of the best things I have ever done to help solidify a bright future for my son.
Take my word, if you want quality representation, do yourself a favor - enlist the services of Mr. Donte Wyatt.

Excellent Attorney. He's extremely bright, honest and up front. He worked thoroughly on my case and did the best he could out of a mess. He cares about his clients and keeps it 100 about everything. His prices are excellent for the services you get. I was very pleased with his defense of my case...Highly recommend him...

A strong advocate when you need it most, Donte demonstrates a unique understanding of the law because of his experience on both sides of the aisle. His zeal and compassion for his clients are rarely matched as well as his thorough knowledge of the law. I strongly endorse this lawyer.
