"Mr. Wickward was very up front and straightforward about my disability claim. He explained the process and every possible outcome. He was instrumental in getting my case approved. I would highly recommend him to anyone else needing a competent lawyer to handle their case."

"If you have dealt with a Lawyer in the past then you will understand what I'm trying to convey. Bill is not your typical Lawyer, he makes time to talk with you and explain what is working and what needs to be done different. We were fighting a large insurance company who denied my disability claim with a ludicrous explanation. The insurance company decided what I could do without talking to me to find out what I did everyday and the insurance company had the wrong job description. Bill has many resources available due to his many years as a Lawyer. In my case Bill contacted an Occupation Therapist who interviewed me, got the correct job description and wrote a wonderful rebuttable to the insurance company's denial. With this resource in hand Bill was able to have my denial overturned with full back pay. I would not only recommend Bill highly but I would use him again without hesitation."

"Due to the complexity of my legal matter, many attorneys declined to represent me. Bill Wickward stepped in and accepted the challenge. The outcome was successful! I would recommend Mr. Wickward. Anyone needing help in a social security case should contact him first."
