client Testimonials

I have worked as appellate counsel and of counsel to The Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm for more than 32 years. Unlike most attorneys, Mr. Wilhelm does not take cases for a quick lowball settlement. If you want a law firm that will prepare and litigate your case to maximize your chance for success and optimize the size of any recovery, then look no further than the Wilhelm Firm. Mr. Wilhelm has a stellar reputation for honesty, integrity, and persistence. If you want a zealous attorney who will investigate all material facts and evidence and who will work up your case so that you can negotiate, settle, or go to trial with confidence and from a position of strength, then I urge you to consider the Wilhelm Firm.

So thankful Mr. Wilhelm accepted me as a client!!I was first taken in by an attorney that only had his interests first, I can't even imagine how I would live if Mr. Wilhelm didn't get the chance to review my case, use his knowledge and experience and WIN BIG!!I didn't know what to expect as far as compensation but I knew everything was going to be all right when Mr. Wilhelm called me one day and asked is he could settle....WOW!!!Not only did Mr. Wilhelm win a summary judgement for me(in my situation this was very good), Mr. Wilhelm got me more money in my pocket than what the bum attorney I was with first demanded in full resolution.Don't waste your time like I did, talk to Mr. Wilhelm first and you will understand what I already know.I learned from my suit, every decision you make WILL AFFECT YOUR WELL BEING!!

When my daughter was burned in an accident, my husband and I looked for a good lawyer who specialized in burn cases. My husband found Mr. Kenneth A. Wilhelm, and we called him and met with him. He told us he would do whatever he could for our daughter, and he did! We were very pleased with the work Mr. Wilhelm did for our daughter, and we are glad we chose such an excellent lawyer. We would choose his services again if we had to, and I would recommend his services to my family, friends, or anyone who has need of a lawyer. My daughter is doing well because of him.
