"We had contacted Attorney Wilkey and Wilkey Legal Consultants, LLC, involving a very complicated civil lawsuit that had spanned a number of years and prior to this time, had involved legal costs and expenses of thousands of dollars. Mr. Wilkey and his firm worked out an effective legal strategy to expedite a resolution to this case, worked out a very flexible budget, and provided consistent and regular updates throughout the entire process. In hind-sight, we wish that we had consulted with his firm before taking years and wasting valuable time and resources, especially where his firm was able to obtain an end result that others were not able or competent enough to achieve, very grateful to find and recommend this firm." --- Todd M. (2017).
