Wrongful Death Lawsuit on behalf of my brother
I can't say enough good things about my experience with Wesley Wakeford. From the moment my mother and I walked into his office and met him we knew that we wanted him to represent us. He is compassionate and honest and very forthcoming with his information and his recommendations. His support during the months following the death of my brother in a motorcycle accident, combined with his expertise and dedication when it came to handling my case, was immeasurable. He kept me well informed as to the status of the case, as well as updating me on any contact he had with the representatives from the insurance company of the person who hit and killed my brother on his motorcycle. The resolution of my case was more than satisfactory, it was excellent! In the future, I know exactly who to turn to when I need excellent legal representation. Thank you again, for all you did for me and my family.

Recommendation for Wesley Dalrymple Wakeford
I was referred to Wesley Wakeford in the fall of 2007 by a retiring personal injury attorney that did not have adequate time to devote to my case. I had recently been hit by a car and in addition to suffering from nerve damage, trauma and not being able to work, the insurance companies were unwilling to compensate me for my medical bills and associated expenses due to a discrepancy in the police report. I needed to find an expert to assist me with navigating the case and Mr. Wakeford came highly recommended. Despite my lack of financial resources Wesley was wiling to work with me and saw to it that I was able to receive consistent medical care by arranging a lien for services with my various healthcare providers. This ability to receive regular, ongoing medical attention allowed me to fully recover from the accident and years later I am confident that I received both the best healthcare and legal assistance possible. Wesley was very thorough and knowledgeable in helping me account for all of my affiliated expenses and he followed through by seeing to it that each of these items was paid for when the case was closed. From the very beginning Wesley was dedicated to representing my case and he was diligent about communicating with me throughout each stage of the two and a half year process. This communication helped to keep me informed and actually taught me a thing or two about how these things work from a legal perspective. Wesley listened to to all of my ups and downs throughout the case and became a trusted confident and sounding board. Today I do not hesitate to pick up the phone and give Wesley a call if there is any legal issue that I need advice on. I both trust and recommend the legal services of Wesley Wakeford knowing from direct experience that in any situation Mr. Wakeford will go the extra mile and his work will exceed my expectations. This accident and my relationship with Wesley has also shaped my personal career path as I am now inspired to pursue a career in law so that I too may become a voice for justice. Thank you Wesley for all that you do~keep up the good work!

True Professional
I found it pleasurable working with Wesley Wakeford as he was the first really good lawyer that I've ever met. Most of the legal professionals seemed, politically biased, semi-professional, and arrogant. I would think that such an important service would attract the most highly rated, professional people. Unfortunately that is not always the case. My experience with Mr. Wakeford gave me a new view of the world of law. While I'm sure he did not make a great deal of money with my case; not once did I get the impression that I was not as important as the next client. Mr. Wakeford worked very hard to assist me in getting through the process as easily as possible. My automobile accident left me injured, angry, and confused but with the help of The Wakeford Firm things got sorted out in a clear and equitable manner. I also find it very interesting that Wes was there to guide me through Doctor Visits, car rentals, insurance matters and settlement negotiations. I had virtually no experience in these matters, but it was obvious to me that I had one the most caring and skillful lawyers around to help me. I hope to never need this type of service again; but I would certainly retain Wes Wakeford should the need arise.
