  • It was a pleasure to work with her during a difficult time.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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!!!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Everyone in the firm was professional and courteous.
    The lawyer and team provided the Deed forms required to swiftly change ownership of our property. We did not have much time to complete the process and the team ensured that everything was processed quickly. Everyone in the firm was professional and courteous.

  • She was never too busy to answer my questions.
    Working with Melissa Shields was a joy. What a knowledgable and nice lady. She was never too busy to answer my questions. I believe you are very fortunate to have her in your employ. Everyone there was always very friendly and knew what they were doing. I would certainly use your firm again if the need should arise.

  • Willing to go the extra mile to please the client.

    Mr Weaver and staff are very attentive to detail and willing to go the extra mile to please the client. I was quite satisfied with the resulting work product.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Articulate and Pleasant, Knowledgeable
    We were delighted with the estate planning documents Mr. Weaver created for us. He listened carefully to us as we expressed our concerns, gave us expert and thorough advice, and created our documents promptly. He is articulate and pleasant, knowledgeable and thorough; we have recommended him to our friends!
