"Mr. Welch made a great first impression. I was charged with a felony assault (my first time ever in legal trouble) and he quickly assured me he could get my case dismissed. Three months later, he did just that. He is always upfront and honest with you, he will work hard to make sure the best possible outcome happens. I don't ever plan on being in legal trouble again but I know he will be my first call if I do." - Teresa
