Strategic Partner — Vickie Hylton


At Hylton Law Office, our goal is to put our clients’ best interests first.  We start by presenting a friendly and professional environment for getting to know you and your unique questions and concerns, before making any recommendations.

Our focus on service continues in the way we work with existing clients.  We don’t shuffle cases among multiple attorneys and paralegals you’ve never met; we don’t send you through a frustrating voicemail maze when you call; and we don’t forget the reason you came to our office: because you trusted us to help with your specific needs–to protect yourself, your family, and your assets with precisely drafted legal documents, designed to fit your unique situation.

We are proud to support local community organizations that share our values, including school organizations, children’s athletic teams.  As an official sponsor of the Beckley Area Derby Dames–our local roller derby team–we take pride in assisting and empowering women.

When you need legal services, remember you have a choice – a choice to work with an attorney who prioritizes personalized customer service.
