Our philosophy of commitment enables us to build on the past, to focus on today’s challenges, and to pro-actively prepare our clients successfully for the future.

A Century of Commitment

When the founders of Wild, Carter & Tipton began representing the firm’s first clients in 1893, they pledged to provide each one with the highest quality legal service possible.

To the firm’s founders, Orlen Lee Everts, David S. Ewing and Mount K. Wild, quality service meant looking at legal issues from the client’s particular point of view and considering problems within the context of the client’s overall goals and objectives. With the client’s ultimate best interest as a guidepost, they used their legal expertise to shape solutions that would be most advantageous to the client, both in the short and long-term.

Over a century later, Wild, Carter & Tipton carries on that tradition of total commitment to each client’s individual needs by providing quality service.

Through the generations, a standard of excellence and dedication has enabled the firm to meet the needs of its clients and this standard has remained for over 120 years.
