Wes was born and raised in Athens, Bradford County, Pennsylvania and he is familiar with most of the roads and healthcare providers in Bradford County and the surrounding counties in Northeastern PA and Southern Tier of New York.
Wes takes pride in the fact that he provides the same quality of service as the “big city” injury firms but with the attributes of being a “small town” lawyer. He is involved with the PI case every step of the way. He meets his clients in the hospital and at their homes, he takes pictures and videos of accident scenes, he talks to witnesses and police, he takes recorded statements, and he gathers medical records and locates appropriate experts. Moreover, he gets to know his clients and their families. These relationships are often lost in the larger firms where multiple staff members are involved on the file. Out of town law firms you see advertising on TV, billboards, and the internet do not know the local roads, police, and healthcare providers like Wes does.
Wes is admitted to practice in all Pennsylvania and New York State courts and has argued before the Pennsylvania Superior and Supreme Courts. He has successfully settled cases with MCARE and Penn DOT. He is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum (fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members), a 4-time recipient of the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers Rising Star distinction in the area of personal injury, a 3-time recipient of The National Trial Lawyers Association “Top 40 under 40” distinction (restricted to only 40 attorneys per state, per year), a 2015 recipient of the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys’ “Top 10 under 40” award (only given to 10 attorneys per state, per year), and a 2016 & 2017 “Top 100” Trial Lawyers – Pennsylvania Civil Plaintiff recipient.
Wes is also involved in the community. He is a board member and the child safety coordinator for Valley ASA Softball and has coached both school and recreational softball teams. He is VP of the school’s Science Olympiad booster club and takes photographs at team competitions. He volunteers with local animal shelters and has done pro bono work for them as well. He is also a member of the advisory board of a local Bank. He is an Eagle Scout and PADI certified SCUBA diver.
