About Us

Our history

Collectively, we have over 150 years experience in service our community’s legal needs. You can count on us to be there today and tomorrow, to carry on that proud tradition of legal excellence on your behalf.


Practicing law is about helping people. It’s about using our knowledge and skill to help you succeed personally and professionally.

–Timothy J. Reese. Esq.

         Our philosophy

With some general practice firms, every lawyer in the firm tries to cover every conceivable area of the law, one moment drafting a Will and the next moment defending a person accused of murder. It is difficult in today’s legal environment to stay current and cutting edge in so many diverse areas of the law. That’s why at Reese, Samley, Wagenseller, Mecum & Longer, P.C. each of our lawyers have primary areas of expertise so that combined, we cover a multitude of practice areas without losing the cutting edge knowledge that comes with trying to do too much. When you call our firm, we’ll assign the case to the best and most experienced lawyer in the firm to handle your particular matter. And each of our attorneys are highly regarded in the legal community in their areas of expertise.

Areas of expertise

We handle wills and estates, personal injury, defense of persons accused of a crime, all family law matters including divorce, custody, spousal and child support, adoptions, employment issues, zoning, guardianship and a host of other areas. The firm is part owner of a title company for help in real estate matters. And when we cannot handle a matter, we know just the right firm for referral.

For more information specific to your legal matter, see our practice areas and then call us for an initial office conference with an attorney with expertise in that area.
