  • Estate Planing; husband's death; updated will and estate plan all done with my interest first and foremost.
    Mr. Weaver did our estate planning and wills in 2011. My husband passed away in 2016 and I really understood as I went through the process how valuable it was to have everything done correctly. Now ,2021 it was time to update and with my son accompanying me Mr. Weaver updated all my legal information so that when the time comes it will be just as easy for my family as it was for me. Easy to work with and trust.

  • Outstanding Service
    Jim turned out to be exactly the type of attorney we had hoped to aid our estate planning. He listened to our desires, made suggestions to help us achieve our goals, than worked hard to create a plan that exactly fit our situation. We look forward to a long relationship with his firm.

  • Impressive in every way.
    I must say that Shelby Loveless did a wonderful service in prepping our will and estate plan. She is thorough, efficient, advisory and courteous. Much better than other legal experiences at other firms where jobs are drawn out, expensive, and gamesmanship enters in to get to the finish line. Shelby and her firm, inclusive of Jim Weaver, simply impressed my wife and I. Thank you so much!

    If you are looking for a law firm to draw up any kind of estate planning documents or handle your real estate transactions, then Weaver Loveless would be my professional recommendation to you. As a CPA and Partner with a local Practice, I encounter many client needs and had to recently update and restate our own documents. Shelby Loveless is not only meticulous and detailed in her work, she does so efficiently and pays attention to your particular wants and desires. Jim and Shelby have excellent bed side manner, so needed in this profession. We are so happy Shelby was able to eternalize our wishes on paper, so that our Graduation to Glory will be smooth sailing for our children and charities whom we love.


  • Weaver Loveless Law was a perfect fit for us.
    As new residents of Florida, we were needing to update our Trust to Florida's standards. We actually located this law office on the internet. And a great choice we made! Although we did meet Jim when we arrived the first time, Shelby became our Attorney. We found her to be every efficient. She has excellent communication skills and explains all of the ins and outs of what needs to be done in "laymen's terms." She is a great team player with her clients. Our whole process from start to finish was completed in 2 weeks which speaks to the efficiency of not only Shelby, but the office staff as well. We have already recommended her to other family members for their legal needs.

    - Tom & Dianna

  • Weaver-Loveless scores big with me!
    Jim and his team were outstanding in formulating a trust for our estate. They were professional, accommodating, caring, and very knowledgeable on trust laws. I recently went through an experience with my father passing away and he had established a trust with Weaver-Loveless. The transition of his assets was seamless through a difficult time for our family. For that reason, I entrusted Jim and his team to establish trust documents for our estate so when the time comes, my children will have the same experience in dealing with our affairs as I did.

    - Kurt Trump

  • Amazing Attorney
    Shelby took all the worries out of this most complicated process. I have worked with her from Massachusetts since 2017; she facilitated a smooth transaction from a situation that had many roadblocks and issues. She took the time to present things to me in layman's terms keeping me informed and up to date throughout the process. She proved to be an extremely bright woman, totally on top of things and a pleasure to work with.

    Weaver Loveless Law firm in Lake Wales - Jim Weaver is superb - a man of integrity with an excellent personal and professional reputation. I was referred to Weaver by another local lawyer for a real estate question and found Weaver answered and delivered as promised. He has a very professional support team and his pricing is reasonable.

    Shelby has been so professional and courteous during the settlement of my Moms estate. She answered all of my questions and returned all calls in a timely manner. It was a pleasure to work with her during a difficult time.

    - Debbie

  • Extremely happy with the outcome.

    Shelby completed the work on my case in a very timely manner. I was told by others that it would take up to 6 months or more and it took just a little over 6 weeks. Extremely happy with the outcome. Highly recommend this firm.

    - Darleen

  • Done quickly without any issues

    We hired Shelby’s firm to prepare and execute documents to sell a home we inherited. The entire process from beginning to end was done quickly without any issues. We are very grateful to the expert assistance we received in handling a rather complex situation since we sellers are all remote from the property.

    - Ed

  • She went beyond what was expected.
    Shelby Loveless was an exceptional attorney following my brothers death. She was always listening and make you feel important, and was always available when needed. She went beyond what was expected in recovering my brother’s car title. That in itself took a lot of time because it had to be coordinated with California DMV. This lady is worth her weight in gold. Thank you Shelby.

    - Gerhard

  • She kept me informed every step of the way
    My mother passed away unexpectedly. I found her will which had been prepared by Mr Weaver’s office. Shelby walked me through the process and was so compassionate when addressing any of the matters concerning my mother. She kept me informed every step of the way and took care of everything. This was a Godsend since I lived 250 miles away from my mom. In the course of handling my mother’s estate, Shelby discovered my father’s estate hadn’t been closed completely and she took care of that as well.

    - Kathi

  • An attorney that truly cares about you

    Mr Weaver recently helped me to better understand a rental agreement that I was involved in. He was prompt and was able to give me the answers I was looking for. Mr Weaver and his staff are very community minded and support various organizations financially and with their time. If you are looking for an attorney that truly cares about you and will take the time to understand your specific situation, Mr Weaver and his team should be your first choice!

    - Mike

  • Handled everything in a very professional and friendly manner.

    We hired Mr. Weaver and his firm to assist us in purchasing a home in Haines City. We live in Michigan and the owner of the home was living in Wisconsin. We weren't sure how the process was going to work, but Melissa handled everything in a very professional and friendly manner. There were a few bumps, but Melissa smoothed them out by even working past her normal business hours to meet our needs. Highly recommend this firm!

    - John and Bette Jo

  • The process from our end was smooth and understandable.
    Mr. Weaver's work was thorough, timely and efficient. He accomplished exactly what he said he would for us. The process from our end was smooth and understandable.

    - Matthew

  • Thanks to all for a job well done!!!

    James Weaver and his firm handled the closing on a building I owned in downtown Lake Wales. Even with the hurdles that usually come with a closing, this closing was handled with great professionalism. Melissa kept everyone abreast of what was going on and when we thought we hit a brick wall, Mr. Weaver stepped in and had the problem resolved very quickly. I highly recommend this firm. Thanks to all for a job well done!!!

    - Linda

  • I can't stress enough how easy it was

    The James Weaver team was great to work with. Even though we were up in Michigan, Melissa kept us abreast of the situations that were happening down here throughout our real estate transaction including going into the hurricane. I can't stress enough how easy it was to complete this real estate transaction without having to physically be there. A big thank you to James and Melissa.

    - Robert

  • Mr. Weaver removed all fear
    As my mother ages, I knew our family needed some documents in place. And living in Boston, I worried that I couldn't accompany my mother to a consultation with a lawyer so the right questions would be asked. Well, Mr. Weaver removed all fear and helped my aging mother to navigate the process of planning. Simply put, Mr. Weaver is an amazing lawyer-- he's caring and knowledgeable. He's a consummate professional you can trust! He knew exactly how to help my mother and he explained everything as many times as she needed. His office worked with me from Boston and gave my family the kind of time and attention that showed his deep commitment to the Lake Wales community. His fees are reasonable, and in fact, I don't think he charges enough for the expertise and work that he does! 
    I can't recommend Mr. Weaver more highly!

    - Andrea

  • Paralegal Melissa was outstanding.

    Sold my parent's vacation home in Florida from Michigan to a couple in Wisconsin. I can only assume James is good because his Paralegal Melissa was outstanding. She's the only one I ever communicated with. Kept us informed and made the transaction easy every step of the way. Highly recommended.

    - Mark L.

  • We could not have been more pleased
    We used this firm, specifically Melissa Shields, for the sale and transfer of our home. We could not have been more pleased or impressed at their knowledge, expertise and timeliness. We are happy to recommend them to our family and friends.

    - Wanda

  • Their service was fantastic!!
    I am more than happy with the service this firm provided me. I am based in UK and no one to ask and do not know what to do. This firm took and completed work so quickly with clear advise, and their service was fantastic!! Without any hesitation, I would recommend this firm.

    - K

  • Everyone in the firm was professional and courteous.

    - Victor

  • Worked in a timely manner

    James Weaver worked in a timely manner to make sure that our trust real estate closing went smoothly and on time before us snowbirds had to return north for the summer. Highly recommend his firm.

    - Ron

  • We can't say enough!
    We hired James Weaver to prepare the documentation for the sale of our home in Haines City Florida as we were in Michigan an unable to any of the local requirements and or the closing. Although we had no direct communication with James, we're confident he was behind the scenes reviewing documents and responses from the purchasing party. All of our communication and emailing back and forth was done with the Paralegal Ms, Mellissa Shields who we can't say enough about, She is simply amazing and handled every detail not to mention negotiating on our behalf to save us some closing costs.

    - Charles

  • Right from the start we felt confident and at ease

    We engaged their services as an out-of-state property owner who ran into some difficulties with title after the fact. Needless to say we came into our initial communication with a fair level of frustration. Right from the start we felt confident and at ease and even enjoyed our interactions. The efficiency and quality of the work performed was excellent. In fact, I have come to expect much less from service providers of all types over the last 10 years. Our experience with this firm not only surprised me but actually made me feel very good on multiple levels, not the least of which is that I finally had confidence that my best interest was in fact being served West integrity and competency. The supplies to all the people we came in contact with within the firm.

    - Corinne

  • Made the whole process easy and enjoyable.

    While “enjoyable legal work” sounds like an oxymoron, Jim Weaver and Shelby Loveless, made quick work of a legal issue that my wife and I were ill-equipped to handle. Their work was thorough and professional. At the same time, however, they educated us on aspects of the law that were unfamiliar to us, and made the whole process easy and enjoyable. We are grateful for the help!

    - Brad

  • Very Competent Staff
    Mr. Weaver and his very competent staff helped me in closing the sale of my mother’s home. She was in an assisted living facility, but due to his great staff, all paperwork was finalized in a very short timeframe. They were understanding of my mother’s situation and worked closely with us to get the closing done as soon as possible. Melissa and Shelby even came to the assisted living facility and did the closing there with the sellers to accommodate my mother’s condition. We were kept up-to-date throughout the entire process and the entire matter was concluded very efficiently.

    - Steve

  • Handled My Situation Quickly

    Had James review a contract in purchasing a home. First off, his staff is EXCELLENT. Most of my conversations were with his paralegal, Melissa Shields (who is awesome), and they are really on their game. So often you call up a company or someone and they’re often so disconnected (at best) or just not very bright or even rude (at worst). Not the case with these individuals.

    Melissa got on the phone with me right away, understood my issue and handled my situation quickly. I was under a time constraint and needed a response in less than a day. I scanned the documents to her as I was in another city at the time and she reviewed them FAST, got back to me with detailed notes, as well as called me back to go over things in detail. During the call, both she and Jim spoke with me at length and in detail about any potential issues and gave some great recommendations on what to do. Excellent experience. Would recommend them to anyone.

    - Paloma
