I have been a client of Wade Law group for 1.5 years now, and I can honestly say you will not find a better attorney in the Bay Area better than Amiel Wade. Not only does he know the law like the back of his hand, but he is kind-hearted, compassionate, and supportive throughout the entirety of your case. He does a spectacular job at explaining legal topics and working with you on how you want your case presented.
My case was a relatively complex case, a civil matter in a rather sticky situation that involved fraud, and was also an emotional case. My case was supposed to be what was anticipated as a quick settlement, but ended up proceeding to a full 2 day trial, and into further post-hearings. I could not have imagined going into that trial without Amiel by side. When topics began to arise that were unforeseen, Amiel knew exactly how to strategize the cross-examination to keep our credibility strong. He is poised, passionate, and beyond intelligent.
While we all know that lawyers can be very expensive, Amiel is worth every dime. And he will work with you regarding finances; he does have flexibility. The quality Amiel brings to the courtroom when you need to win your case is invaluable. He plays hardball, and knows what it takes to win cases.
While I am hoping I do not have to have any other legal issues in the future, if anything were to occur, there is no one I would ever consider to represent me but Wade Law Group. I would highly recommend Wade Law Group to anyone in need of Civil Litigation.

I highly recommend anyone involved in a civil suit to use attorney Amiel Wade. I was terrified because I was being sued. After Mr. Wade reviewed my case, he concluded that we should counter sue. Our case went all the way to a jury trial. Mr. Wade knows every aspect of civil law and can rapidly recite it verbatim when needed. Not only did the plaintiff lose on every count, but we were awarded a very large jury settlement including punitive damages Also, l found Mr. Wade's fees to be extremely competitive. If you are looking for the best civil lawyer in the greater bay area, look no further than Amiel Wade.

I have worked with Amiel on a multitude of cases and believe that he is extremely knowledgeable and savvy. I have seen him interact both in court and with clients and believe he is truly amazing to watch. He is extremely hardworking, knows the ins and outs of the courtroom and works extremely hard on behalf of his clients. I would recommend Amiel to anyone in need of an excellent attorney.
