“Will Helixon was my military lawyer during my court-martial in 2005 and his legal expertise and dedication is the sole reason my case ended in a dismissal from service with no jail time served instead of a conviction for premeditated murder facing life imprisonment. There are many brilliant military lawyers available who know the law well, but what makes Mr. Helixon stand out from all of them is his complete involvement and absolute dedication to his client. During my court-martial he was my U.S. Army Trial Defense (TDS) appointed military lawyer, but he provided me with better service and attention than the most high-priced superstar lawyers. Will Helixon is, without a doubt, the reason I was able to continue with my life. Will Helixon exemplifies everything good about our legal system and the reason why I still have faith in said system.”

“Will Helixon is the finest military lawyer I have ever worked with. As the Brigade Judge Advocate in both Italy and Afghanistan, Will prosecuted an incredible amount of cases across a myriad of offenses to include several court martial cases in the combat zone and prevailed in them all. His skills go far beyond his military justice acumen. I relied on his advice and counsel under the most difficult circumstances during a long and arduous combat tour in Afghanistan. Will was a critical part of clearance of fires with literally minutes to evaluate and render his opinion in life or death situations, his counsel was always on the mark. I trust him completely in the most difficult pressure-filled environment imaginable. He was simply brilliant at rapidly assessing the situation and providing advice to me as a commander in the field. There is no better pressure player than Will. I will always be grateful he was by my side. The Army has recognized his tremendous abilities after his tour as a Brigade Judge Advocate by assigning him the most difficult, contentious, and high profile cases in the US Army. Despite enormous pressure he was always true to the military justice system and his sense of what is right never wavered. His integrity is beyond reproach. Will brings incredible passion to his chosen profession. As an acknowledgement of his abilities and passion for the law, Will was selected and certified for the prestigious position of military judge. Finally Will Helixon is a man I would readily trust to take care of my family. I can pay no higher compliment or endorsement.”

“I am the father of one of Mr. Helixon's clients and I will be forever thankful to have met him in very difficult times. He defended my son brilliantly and as a result, he has been able to go on with his life becoming a successful person, married and waiting for his first child and all of these are thanks to Mr. Helixon. Will conducted a brilliant defense under very difficult circumstances -- he kept me up to date as to what was going on in court, but above all he showed us what a wonderful person he was and he is. I am privileged to have met him as a lawyer and as a person. He is the finest lawyer I have ever met. Every night I thank The Lord for him to be my son's lawyer.”

“I met Mr. Helixon back in 2005 when he was my son's defense lawyer, and since then I will be forever thankful to the Dear Lord for meeting him in a very difficult time. As a woman and mother, he showed sensitivity, understanding and above all, patience because I was never involved in a situation so difficult. Mr. Helixon is a great litigator and never gives up. God bless him.”
