"Through the recommendation of a friend, I secured Charles Wakefield as my attorney for a personal injury received while traveling on vacation as a passenger on a long distance train. I met with Mr. Wakefield, finding him cordial and pleasant, and his genuine concern extremely relieving. Although meeting in person only a few times, he kept in continual contact by phone and was always available for questions, which eased my mind. After a few negotiations, my case was settled expediently without court intervention, and I happily received a fair settlement. I feel fortunate to be justly compensated for my expenses and injuries. Thank you very much Mr. Wakefield for your diligence on my behalf."

Planning for a big trip across the globe is fun and exciting. Thinking about estate planning while plotting the course of your big adventure can be decidedly less exciting.

Did you know that men, on average, die almost five years earlier than women? Part of the reason is that men are more reluctant to go to the doctor, according to http://menshealthmonth.org/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=WakefieldLawPLLC&utm_content=WakefieldLaw . In fact, studies show that women go to the doctor twice as much as men. The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among both men and boys. This is a great reminder to schedule your annual checkup if it’s still on the to-do list!

Personal Injury Claims Aren’t About Revenge, They Are About Protection

You can probably imagine that, as attorneys, we’ve heard all the jokes. We know that not everyone has a rosy view of what it’s like to work with an attorney. In general, we have pretty thick skins. But, there are common misconceptions about working with a personal injury attorney that we just can’t let slide. Check out our responses to the top four myths we hear about working with a personal injury attorney.

People don’t really trust lawyers, and there is a general feeling that the act of hiring (or even just talking to) an attorney is a confrontational act. This misconception is common, but it’s dangerous. So, we are here to set the record straight.
