Emporia VA Lawyer Client Reviews

Awesome Attorney 5.0 stars Posted by Yewande April 26, 2013 I contacted the law firm only based on the reviews i had seen on the website. I was not disappointed. Mr Wells explained everything from what he could accomplish and what i should expect. Of course everyone wants their case to be dismissed but im more than satisfied with the outcome and would recommend him without a moments notice to anyone second guessing their choice. You wont be sorry.

Jonathan Kibbey a month ago- My experience at Riley and Wells was excellent. My free consultation took place over the phone which was convenient but also very thorough. Mr. Riley took the time to listen to the details of my case, gave me an idea of what to expect in court, and advised me on what to do before going to ensure a better result. When my court date arrived Mr. Wells spoke with me briefly about the details and what he anticipated the result would be before meeting with the prosecutor. I ended up with all three charges, one of which was reckless driving dismissed! Thank you for a great experience.
