Robert Reives focuses on serving the Hispanic community in Lee County because of an early encounter with one of the first Spanish-speaking families in the area. A friend of his from school was part of that family, and his parents worked as interpreters in the area. Even looking back many years later, it is evident that the community could have benefited from Spanish lawyers or Spanish-speaking legal help.
Since that time, the community changed and the Spanish-speaking population grew. Today, 1 in 4 people in Sanford are Hispanic. There is a growing need in the community for service providers to be able to accommodate different languages and cultural nuances.
At Wilson & Reives, the awareness of the needs of the Spanish-speaking population in the area drives the firm’s involvement and focus on a diverse staff.

The Wilson & Reives motto, “Because everyone matters,” is not just a slogan; it is how we operate as a legal firm. Our core principles focus on diversity in our staff and services. This helps ensure that everyone feels like they matter to us. Being part of a personal injury claim, workers’ compensation claim or criminal charge is a scary, worrisome and complex time for many people. The Wilson & Reives team works to make that time less of a burden and to help our clients feel like they are not alone. We usually remain in contact with our clients even after a case is settled. That is a testament to our commitment to making everyone feel like they matter.
