Satisfied Client Stories


I hired Mr. Walter for my DWI – I was embarrassed – ashamed – horrified. Mr. Walter literally held my hand through the entire process; he was kind, knowledgeable, and professional and got me the best result possible. All I could do after my case was give him a hug.

John is simply an outstanding attorney. Extremely knowledge. Very well connected in the local community, which is worth it's weight in gold. Mr. Walter is passionate about what he does.
