A community establishment for over 60 years, Long & Long, LLC
continues to uphold a standard of excellence with three generations serving
Having been voted the Best Attorney in Westmoreland County nine times,
Attorney Wesley T. Long reflects on his initial exposure to the legal world. “I
grew up around it,” says Wes. “Becoming an attorney was a product of my
father being an attorney and seeing the enjoyment in what he did.” B. Earnest
“Ernie” Long, Wes’s father, began practicing law in 1957 in Greensburg having
graduated from the University of Pittsburgh after serving in the Armed Forces.
Wes joined his father’s practice after graduating from Duquesne University
and has now been practicing for almost 40 years. “It is very rewarding for
me, being able to help and assist people in situations that they unfortunately
encounter. I genuinely care about them and do my best to put myself in their
position and work for their best interests.” This past fall, Wes won the 2nd
largest personal injury verdict in Westmoreland County history, by doing just
that (almost $3.56M). “I love watching a client excited at the end of a case,
not just because they won, but also because they saw and understood all of
the work that went into a win,” says Wes.
Boasting three generations of Longs, as Wes’s son, Adam, joined the firm in
2010, Long & Long, LLC is looking to the future. As for his one piece of advice
for clients, Wes says “I wish more people thought about a proactive estate
plan. So many people could minimize both family disputes and tax burdens
with good estate planning. It is absolutely cheaper and easier in the long run
and people do not realize that Westmoreland County has exceptional lawyers.
They don’t have to go to Pittsburgh for exceptional service and knowledge.”
With their depth of legal knowledge and experience, Long & Long, LLC
remains proud of its roots, and aspires to continue serving the Westmoreland
County community in the years to come.
