“I’ve known Will Helixon for over 10 years, and his dedication, focus, and determination to achieve the best results for his clients is unparalleled. I worked with Will while we were both active duty Army judge advocates, where his knowledge of the law and meticulous preparation of cases was always clearly evident in every court-martial. Judge advocates would stop what they were working on to watch him in court—whether he was defending a client for sexual assault, murder, or drug use. Will excels in pretrial negations as well, using every opportunity to advocate for his clients’ best interests, because he understands how the system works, the intricacies of everyone’s role, and all the steps he can take to improve a client’s position. If my military career were on the line, I would hire Will Helixon to lead the charge.”

“Will Helixon is one of the finest trial advocates I have seen anywhere. His dedication to his craft and persistence in representing his clients are unmatched, and he taught me a tremendous amount about being a trial attorney. Further, Will's a straight-shooter and an all-around good guy. If I myself needed a trial attorney, Will would be the first person I would call.”

“Will Helixon is one of the best litigators I’ve had the pleasure of facing. His dedication to his cases, knowledge, and attention to detail combined with his superior written and oral advocacy skills make him a formidable opponent in any courtroom. Additionally, Will is always working all possible alternate avenues of disposition outside the courtroom to ensure the best possible outcome for his case. Will is a tenacious advocate with an extraordinary grasp of the nuances of the law, enabling him to leverage that knowledge at the proper time to maximize the success of his cases. No one cares more about his clients, and no one works harder than Will to get the results his cases deserve.”
